Wondering where everyone is feeling kicks. I was feeling a lot of movement up high and just all over, but in the last two weeks, baby girl has started to have longer stretches of staying still. It makes me wonder if she's starting to develop some sleep cycles.

Now, I mostly feel kicks very, very low. Mostly on the under side of my belly near my panty line and on down. What about you guys?

And if you happen to know how baby is positioned, where do you feel kicks? Since I had such a big shift in where I'm feeling movement, I'm wondering if she was breech and turned head down, or the other way around. I know there's still plenty of time, but I really hope she's not breech! There is something hard up toward the top of my belly on my right side - can't tell yet if it's a head or a bottom. I'm hoping my midwife can tell when I go in next week.

His head is downwards so I feel his kicks high but not in my ribs high. I feel his little punches n elbows low. they have been getting harder now. he is very very active to the point the husband can be sitting next to me n won't even be touching or looking n can baby moving out the corner of his eye.

Mostly down low, lower abdomen. Sometimes a little higher up above my belly button.

Seems to vary- she was head down at my u/s at 21 weeks but she seems to have moved because I feel the movement in new spots. Lately I feel a lot on my left side

lots of movement low, especially if I'm sitting up... I think I'm squishing him. All other movement is up on my right side belly button level and higher. Nothing at all on my left side.

How he's positioned on the ultra sounds does not correlate to his movements at all. It's baffling, lol.

My baby is head down and his spine is leaning towards my left side and his butt is in my ribs.. I feel punches and tickles from his arms and maybe toes down low by my panty line... I feel him roll over across my stomach but usually on my left side.. I feel his hiccups jumping just to the left of my belly button and when he stretches out longer his but jabs into my ribs more. I can also usually see him moving through my skin. If I lay my hand or anything on him he kicks it usually. He used to kick the cat but I think he likes her now and doesnt mind her on my stomach.

I feel Caelyn everywhere! She is so active and is waking me up at night with her antics. I feel hiccups low which is the only thing that's consistent.

Everywhere, actual kicks/jabs I feel more low but to the sides, I feel lots of stretching and rolling up higher. Though she does sneak in a few painful kicks/punches up top too!

At my ultrasound yesterday she kept moving between breech and transverse which explains why it feels like she has four arms and legs. Sometimes I'll feel her feet all the way to the right side of my body and other times it feels like she's going to kick a foot right out of my cervix.

Thanks to *Kiliki* for my siggy!

I also have no idea if Baby Rose is breech or not and I don't have any more u/s scheduled so HOPEFULLY she's head down by now lol

I also feel kicks and such really low on my panty line and sometimes a little higher near my belly button... Even my pelvic bone sometimes and "bum area" lol those are a little jolting

I'm pretty sure she is transverse because I feel movement up high on both sides (right and left) a lot at the same time. She's a mover though and is constantly rolling around so her position changes, but I haven't felt any movement down low for a few weeks.

I can't tell kicks from punches, but I feel most movement low and some movement high, and sometimes I feel movement high and low at the same time. As I write this, I just got some kicks (or punches) to the ribs
Thank you Jaidynsmum for the beautiful siggy!

I can't tell what is what, but there is a ton of movement. I feel more hard spots and rolls than I do actual kicks.
Thank you, Vicki! Love my siggy!

Everywhere! I have no idea what position he's in, but I would be willing to bet he's still breech based on how I can pretty much feel him all over my belly at one time.
