  • is it also normal to only mainly feel the baby kick down in my lower stomach?

  • Yeah, it's probably the booty or the head . Your little peanut has found a comfortable position so she (or he) is going to stay there for awhile.

  • Yup, baby is getting big enough to push on you now! If it's ever painful to the touch, then I'd be concerned.

    Also, try to keep in mind that you're probably NOT as big as you think you are. I gained almost half of my body weight with my son and I know I was still pretty tiny...but compared to what I WAS I felt like a whale! Twin whales!

  • i only feel like that when im laying on my back or walking around it feels really weird. im not concerned or anything i just wanted to know if anyone has felt this before. and most of the time i feel the kicks down lower.

  • I'm 25 weeks and on the chubby side and I feel all of my baby's kicks down low also. My doc said it was normal. I thought I was the only one who hasn't felt any movement up higher yet!

  • It is probably just the way your body is shaped and stuff. I don't think I would let it worry me. Your belly will get harder and stretch out more as the baby gets bigger.

  • I am 26 wks and I still mainly feel them down low. Only last night did I feel anything higher!
