I don't know if she's moving MORE, or I'm just feeling it more because she's getting bigger, but wow! Now I really can't help but know there's a baby in there! (I love it.) The best was in the pool the other day...with the water taking all the weight off and my muscles relaxed, I could actually FEEL her whole little body in there...instead of a hard, round basketball with a couple of lumps, my belly felt like a little curled up baby in a soft sack. It was so cool!!!
She's totally still head up right now, but I am trying very hard to stay relaxed about that. I am fully aware that it is WAY too early to worry or draw any conclusions. (deep breaths)
Anybody else noticing a difference now that we're getting so far along?
This LO moves so much. The kids love when I lift my shirt and they can watch him kick and wiggle. Yesterday he kept trying to stretch out vertically and wow, he's getting big. It hurt. Thankfully soon he'll get too big to do that!
Mine is mostly head down. At 26w he had been all head-up/transverse, but a few days after that he flipped. He goes back and forth. He was head up for 2 days last week and for most of yesterday, but he's back to head down now. My others all settled in around 28w, so I was expecting it around now. DS2 did flip to breech once at 35/36w and freaked me out, but he flipped back quickly.

Like I've mentioned, I am really bad at telling, but I know my mw started telling me Adair was head down around 32 weeks last time. I'm still feeling probably 90% of my strong kicks down low/internal, though, so I'm just guessing she has not made the transition to settling in any kind of birth position yet!
I love feeling her move! Just last night I told my husband "Sometimes I forget how amazing and what a miracle it is that there's a super tiny human being just chillin' in there!" She feels like she's sideways to me, with her butt on the right and her head on my left, but I don't know for sure. I just know she's strong and it's starting to hurt!!
This little one is an acrobat! Always kicking and flipping and moving. The other day, her little foot (I think it was a foot) pushed out so far right above my belly button is actually hurt. All three of my girls have been big movers... DS was the quieter one. And so far DD1 and DD2 are on the go all the time they are awake. I really hope Laney doesn't follow suit. At night, DH and I will sit and watch her rumble my belly or I'll have him feel where she is pushing out with her little feet. I am pretty sure she is head down now. Hopefully, she'll stay that way. I am short-waisted, so my babies tend to go head down pretty early.
This little muffin is checking out whether or not acrobats are it's thing at the moment. It swaps and changes position so often. It did some movements the other night that actually made me feel sick. Felt like a massive vacuum in my stomach. I am really strating to get uncomfy now. Still loving it though.
