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.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
