  • yeah thats normal its the baby jabbing you and moving around... your baby is growing and the room it has is minimizing as it is doing this so that means jabs to your belly... lol some are uncomfy but i miss it now that im not pregnant :(

  • It's probably the baby kicking you in the ribs. I know my second son loved to hide up near my ribs. That really hurt!!
