  • i would literally push the baby back down out of my ribcage, and hold pressure long enough that they would move. no, its not harmful, won't hurt the baby, or you. they experience more pressure when you are asleep, or sitting down, than when you do this

  • Maybe try putting something warm on your tummy? I'm not far enough along to have to deal with this, but my mom said when she was pregnant with my bro he sat in her ribs. She would put mild heat on the top of her belly, and he'd move down to get away from it. After he moved, she tied the cord from her robe around the top of her belly so he wasn't able to climb back up. (And before everyone says how unsafe that is to do, my brother is 22 years old and perfectly fine.)

  • You will start to feel a bit better as soon as the baby drops, I felt this way too, I could hardly breathe if I bent over to get something so I had to hold my breath lol, But its not so much in ur chest u just may be carrying a little high :)

  • Jen I knew heat could help move but the thing with the robe cord is something different (however cute) :-D
