Is my uterus that much room?

In the mornings and at night this little girl is low, but mid day I swear she is starting to stretch up into my ribs.

I thought it was too early to be able to reach up that far, but I guess not. I have to constantly recline my work chair to make it more comfortable to sit. Not such a professional position in a meeting.

I've been wondering something similar. See, DD was breech and her head was snuggled under my right breast for quite a while. This baby seems really low and isn't even near my ribs right now. My uterus is measuring normal size so ??? Is baby just snuggled down low this time? Is there some sort of void up top? LOL

I have a pretty long torso and this kid has been in my ribs since about 25 weeks, but doctor said I was measuring right so**shrug**.

I guess I am one of the furthest along, but baby has been up in my ribs for weeks and weeks now. It's true, our uterus's are that large by now!

Baby's bum is under my left ribs and is constantly kicking my right ribs.

GAG! I'm so not looking forward to that! I think my placenta might be up top this time so I might have a bit of padding up there this time!

My baby is exactly like this. My other two didn't kick my ribs with their feet although their bums would bother them - especially my first baby because I was working and sitting in an office chair all day. She was bum on right, feet on left though which was way worse because I have a messed up lower rib on my right side from snowboarding back in the day :rolleyes:

Today my guy had somehow gotten his feet up by his head and was kicking my right hip :?: I was freaked he's flipped breech but then he started digging his heels into my ribs again...so either he is going nuts in there or he was punching me really hard. The "good news" is that all that kicking builds their legs muscles.

My LO has been kicking my ribs for weeks too. But baby seems to definitely move back and forth. Some days baby is kicking on the right and some days on the left. This one seems to be more active than my other two. So #3 should be interesting Wink
