I'm 18 weeks today, and for the last week or so, when I use my doppler I get the heartbeat next or on my belly button. I'm not sure, but 17-18 weeks seems a little early for it to be that high no? Anyone else dealing with this?

You're likely not hearing it right there, that's just where the best passage to the baby is, free of placenta and other tissue. I wouldn't be concerned at all. Plus it depends if you're laying down or sitting or reclined some. I'm sure you'll see that over time, the place you hear the baby from best will change depending on what position it's in as well. :)

I wouldn't be too worried as long as you are hearing heartbeat.
