Getting my butt kicked...

from the inside lol. Or at least thats how it feels. I am also getting some jolts to my sternum when I am sitting, so I am not quite sure which end is up lol

Where are you feeling your baby's kicks/jabs and sqwirms???

Mine seem to be all over the place. I haven't felt too many low ones yet though. Maybe because this baby isn't quite big enough for me to pick up on those yet. I do remember them from DS though. They make you jump sometimes. Smile

All of mine have been generally pretty low, but today I felt some closer to my belly button. Normally they are still really low though!

Normally they are just below my belly button on the right side. I remember DD kicking me in the bum Blum 3

Everywhere from 2" above my belly button to really down low! Baby Girl does a lot of rotating around, but isn't much of a kicker really compared to her brother. My son never stopped moving in me and still hasn't. Ha.

Sounds like my kids lol. DS1 was always moving... DS2 was more of the big kicks when he moved... DD was my dainty butterfly... this baby is quieter in general.. more sqwirms and wiggles, I am feeling kicks, but not nearly as much as I did with the other 3 at this point Smile

This little guy is a lot more chill than Kostas was. But I've noticed that both boys like to hang out down low. Cricket isn't a big kicker but apparently looooves to do somersaults and barrel rolls LOL

Glad it hear someone else is feeling less than a previous pregnancy. Everyone IRL talks about feeling more movement and feeling it earlier, but totally not true for me. I notice more small movements each week, but really mostly small movements. When I get a good swift kick I get overjoyed where by this point with DS I was telling him "c'mon boy give mommy a break!!!" Maybe this girl will go head down sooner (she was transverse at my u/s at 18 weeks) since she seems to turn herself around more than DS who was breech up until 34ish weeks (and then stayed posterior :roll:).

mine are low, left, right, and this morning for the first time in the middle! it was very early morning, and DH was up getting ready for work, so as i lay in bed i felt it kick through to my hand! i wanted to get DH so he could feel it, this would be the first time, but i knew as soon as i got up he'd stop.... well i got up anyway, got DH and of course as soon as he lay with me and put his hand on my belly all the kicking stopped!.... then started up again when he went to work! silly baby lol, maybe tomorrow morning, and he'll be in bed w/ me longer because he has off for the 4th of July.

I rarely feel anything because of my anterior placenta but when I do it's usually around my belly button area (last u/s we had he was head down so I'm guessing that's his favorite way to be).

I feel a lot of movement near & below my belly button. Never above. I went in for a checkup today and my OB couldn't find the heartbeat, he was searching above my belly button. Then he remembered that this is my 5th, and he found the heartbeat immediately down low. He said since I've had so many babies, my uterus is like a streched out hammock and the baby will probably hang out there because there is more room. Uhhhh, thanks doc! I actually thought it was funny, and he apologized saying that he can't think of a better way to put it. Smile I actually prefer carrying low, rather than constantly having a baby in my ribs!

I am really surprised, being my 4th, that I have felt very little movement. I don't think I noticed movement until 16 weeks. It was freaking me out a little. I'm going to ask about my placenta at my u/s on Monday, thinking maybe it's anterior like with DD. When I do feel movement though it's low, like right above my pubic bone. I have felt a handful of pokes around my belly button. And felt one bump on my hand when I was resting it on my belly. Smile This baby has been FAR more relaxed than all of my others...hoping this is foresight into what he/she will be like as a baby and child. I need a mellow kid for once!
