  • If you don't feel pregnant, and are not feeling movement, you should check with your doctor. My experience has been that my stomach kept getting harder, never smushy.

  • I think if you are a little overweight then it's normal to have that little smushy puch at the bottom of your belly. Just make sure you are feeling movements. At 20 weeks your uterus is still below your belly button, so movements are usually felt low

  • im 29 weeks and my belly is kinda mushy lol. i didnt feel her moving til about 21 theyre freaking strong and lastnight she kicked me hard in the rib cage...

    it could be that your carrying higher and you feel him/her baby usually pushes my stomach out and its hard in that area..and everywhere else its mushy....

    i dont feel pregnant for being 29wks only because im so tiny lol
