Hello and welcome.
I am Dr. Norm, and I look forward to helping you today.
Most likely it's normal. The baby is in the area from the vagina to the belly button. If the head is up, the legs are close to the vagina. The legs are the most powerful part of your baby, and where they kick, your wife will feel it.
As the baby gets bigger and the uterus grows higher, the kicking will also get higher.
