Just looking to commiserate with someone about what baby has been up to lately.. The past day or two he has been churning in there. Like, it feels like he's going up and down. I saw a head poking out at the top of my uterus, under my rib a couple inches this morning. Owww. Last night he was kicking into my hips and nether regions. The whole motion in there makes me feel a little nauseated and takes my breath away! Not to mention, keeps me up at night.
Stop it little baby! Get yourself upside down and kick all day if you want around my navel but these other places are really not comfortable.
Well yesterday was a very quiet day for him (don't worry, he's still in there though, he's back to normal this morning lol). However, most of the time he is in there doing aerobics or something. Honestly, I had no ideas babies moved so much! And it constantly feels like he's turning over, except I don't think he actually is. His movements are just so BIG it feels like he's doing somersaults!
Not gonna lie, sometimes I look at my belly and say "Listen kid, will ya pipe down for a little while?" haha
I must have been spoiled getting only belly button kicks until recently - yowza jamie! I'm always like, aw, how cute, or wow what an alien, but never OW WATCH IT!! I lunged all the way to the kitchen this morning to try and move him outta there. It may have worked - mid- morning has been less eventful.
I've had some kicks lower most the time, so I'm mostly used to them. Yesterday I took my first head butt to the stomach. Right after I ate. That wasn't pleasant. Thankfully I didn't pig out at lunch yesterday...

Try hanging out on all fours for about 15 to 20 mins and then also doing the inversion...this is when you are on your knees on the couch and hands on the floor (PS. I'd have DH nearby to help you back up or to lower your body to the floor after abt 5 - 10 mins of this) The all fours is easier but needs to be done for a longer period of time. Also music near the pubis and ice near the ribs Get that baby moving back head down
The kicks I can handle but the full body turns - ouch! This happened to me a few weeks ago and I thought something was wrong and was having contractions or something.
Last night this happened to and when I got home from work and out of my car, I couldn't even stand straight it hurt so bad. I was hunched over holding my belly slowly walking to the door. Thankfully none of my neighbors were outside or they would have thought I was in labor, lol.

I'm with Jamie. Baby Susan has been grooving around on my cervix and sometimes, I shake my butt to get her to move off but it barely ever works. I also noticed baby girl likes to hide in my rib cage and that gets uncomfortable too. I definitely suggest getting up and shaking your booty though if baby won't move. It usually does help settle them down and get them to change position. Only a few months left then we'll be moving with them in our arms willing them to go to sleep at 3am lol
Mine has been busy busy and I was trying to figure out if it was flipping around or what.... but I think it was just running in there?? I dunno, it was painful. Very different from how I felt with my others.
