So far during this pregnancy I've been carrying kind of in the middle of my stomach, not very high or low. I've felt my kicks mostly lower, though. The other morning, I woke up and noticed my bump looks different. It actually looks a little smaller to me and down a lot lower. Could the baby have dropped this early? I've been walking and rushing around a lot more these past few days than I did earlier in the pregnancy, so maybe it's just my belly changing shape due to exercise? I'm really not sure what to think. I have this fear of going into labor early, even though there has been no indication that I will from any of my doctor appointments. But right now I'm by myself with no doctor and no idea where a hospital is and can't speak the language here as well as I should, so I've been a little extra freaked out.
I've also been getting this new weird sensation in my stomach the past couple of weeks. Every once in a while my stomach will feel like it's going completely empty, like everything is moving down. It kind of feels like just before you throw up, but I haven't felt nauseated and I haven't thrown up, or feels like when you go down a steep hill quickly and your stomach drops. Then it slowly goes back to normal. Has anyone else felt anything like this? Is it just the baby doing flips in there or something? When it happens, I can't actually feel her actively moving around, but I can't think of what else it could be! Strange braxton hicks sensations? I don't know!
