  • That could very well be the baby hitting your ribs. I know they're too small at that point to kick, but they still manage to find their way up there. i was 19 weeks when I first felt my daughter do that. It just gets worse as the baby grows lol. I remember it would almost take my breath away when I'd be driving and my daughter would get her little toes in there. Ouch! The best thing you can do is gently rub the area that hurts and baby will move. Congrats!
