36 moving in abdominal area!!!

I'm 36 weeks...the baby is head down already. What on earth is he doing moving and bouncing in my abdominal area?!?! It hurts sooo bad. Painful. Is he turning his head? Just weird because his movements are so low down there.

  • Could be. He also might not be completly engaged in the pelvis and able to move around. Or he could be pushing on nerves or whatnot to cause the pain. Or both. I remember my first DD doing that. Was a killer, id gently push on her and tell her to stop and she usually did lol. :( not too much long thou momma!!!

  • just because he's head down doesnt mean the rest of his body is jammed into you pelvis he does happen to have legs and arms and such that can still move around...

  • I am 37 wks Tomorrow...n i am having the same pains...It just feels like bolts of lighting striking down there...Doc said its just a combo of braxton hicks and him just hitting a nerve.
