I've been doing some research. Okay okay, I've googled 28 weeks pregnant and EVERY picture I come up to has the baby in the head down position. Like, miraculously the baby flips at 27 weeks and 6 days. LOL I'm pretty sure my little girl is still breech. I get a lot of kicks/punches down low, under my belly button and off to both of the sides.
Where are you feeling movement?
I'm pretty sure I'm giving birth to either an octopus or an acrobat. I sometimes get really good kicks high up on my belly, right under my ribs, which makes me think that little dude is head down. But other times (like even as we speak) I start feeling them really low, like way down below my belly button and close to my hoohah. What's the deal? Is he punching really hard? Did he flip from earlier when I felt them up high? Or does he just have too many limbs for a human baby? LOL
The funny thing I've been feeling for the last week or so is kicks/hits on different parts of my belly at the same time. It feels like he's laying horizontally across my belly and kicking his feet on the left side while stretching his arms on the right side...I don't remember feeling that with T, and it's a hoot.
So basically, I feel him everywhere. High, low, side to side, no pattern that I can detect. LOL I think they are still small enough that they can flip around in there, they aren't totally locked and loaded yet.

Got an opinion? We've got a board! Come join us for some lively debate on the Face Off! Debate Arena board.
Haha Alissa, I feel little girl on both sides too, like she's lying horizontally in there. But when the doc did the 20 week u/s (of course, I wasn't feeling her AS much then) the doc put on the report that she was breech. I can't imagine that baby can spread her legs that far and hit me on both sides without me feeling her head or hands up top.
Yep, my little dude is all over the place. Sometimes high, sometimes low. Yesterday it was on the far right side in the middle.
There are days where he moves non-stop and some days where he hardly moves at all. And when do they start hiccuping? I think maybe I once felt it, but I'm not sure. What does it feel like? Like light little kicks that are repetitive?
all over now too.. Low at times and at the same time i feel feet up high or whatever that is up high This lil gal is a mover that is for sure, and the hickup thing i think i felt my lo have the hickups this morning, interesting feeling but was thinking it was too early for that.
I think my baby is head down; I'm going to ask my midwife if she can tell this week. I feel most of my big kicks and movements higher up, around my belly button and I feel little flutters down low, probably fingers. I occasionally feel a punch in the bladder but not too often.
Yep, baby can move around a lot. Jessica I would suggest at about 32-35 weeks, checking positioning and if she's still breech start going to the chiro. My babies like to move posterior and last time I went to the chiro at 35 weeks on and she turned into the right position.
Elizabeth, yeah hiccups feel like regular light movements, as the baby gets bigger, your whole belly will move haha! I remember Noel had hiccups the night I went into labor with her; I couldn't sleep at all and was really restless.
OMG perfect thread for my day. My ill girl is a beat on me machine! I feel it everywhere and right now she is moving so much the iPad is bouncing all over. At my 18 week u/s I was breech and I have an u/s this Thursday. Imam HUGE this time and I worry she is huge and running out of space with soooo long left to go lol
At our ultrasound, baby girl was breech. And most days I think she still is. I mainly feel movement on each side and down below my belly button. Only a few times have I felt movement at belly button level or just a tad higher.
