Peyton has always been a VERY active baby and I think she is just running out of room now. Is it normal at this stage in the game to have painful rolling movements. It is like she is doing an alligator death roll in there, lol! Sometimes it takes my breath away, while other times it is just "ugh that did not feel good".

Just wondering if this is normal

Yep. Totally normal. They can still hit nerves, organs, and bones even while being contained in the uterus. Since our uterus doesn't have nerve sensations, it doesn't hurt when they are smaller and not running into so many of our internal body parts. As they grow, they stretch the uterus and squash up the organs and can run into some pretty painful areas. I know Jo gets me both in the rib-cartilage and in some random organ on my lower right side. Man, it can take my breath away. Sometimes it feels like a foot is gonna actually pop out the side of my belly she pushes so hard.

But yes, it's entirely normal for some movements to be painful. As long as ALL of them aren't painful. Then I would bring it up with your doc.

I sure hope its normal, if not I'm in big trouble. Sometimes the moves are so rough I think it's going to knock me over.

Yep. I swear Avery is trying to kick herself out through my ribs sometimes. I also sometimes wonder if the death roll I feel is contractions, but it never stretches across my whole stomach so I just assume it's not. Just a few weeks left and al of this will just be a memory.

Yes! I get that too. Last night Chase kicked in a certain way that made my knees buckle, lol, he must have hit a nerve or something. Sometimes his movements wake me up at night they are so strong. I feel bad sometimes, like he is just trying to get comfortable and can't.

I don't know if it's from the anterior placenta or what, but I've only experienced mild discomfort, particularly when he gets a foot in my ribs (happens daily). But, from what I understand, what you're experiencing is totally normal.

Maybe that's so, Rhea, because I have an anterior placenta too, and I haven't really gotten any super-painful movements. Every once in awhile he will stick a foot out too hard and it will give me pause for a minute or two, but other than that, nothing major.

I actually asked my OBYN's nurse the same question last week, when I was there because his movements can be so painful!
And she said it was normal and smaller frame women can feel it more poignantly/painfully because there is less room there,

She also said there is no such thing as to much movement, when I asked her that question since sometimes his movements feel so frenzy and painfull, I am worried he is having a seizure or something weird is going on but she said it was all normal

I think it is a lot less common to have painful movements with an anterior placenta. But it depends on placement and baby position. My first two, who both had anterior placentas, never caused pain with their movements. In fact, I would have been concerned about my first son if I knew to be...he was so quiet in the womb. My second was active, but never painful.

However, even with my third anterior placenta, this baby does hurt me. However, her placenta is no where near her hands or feet. In fact, her face is in it and it extends to about where her belly button is. Therefore, I am feeling 99% of her limb movements. So it has been a very different experience. Lol.

Sometimes I wonder how much more painful it would all be if I had no cushion out there at all!
