  • no you wont hurt your baby. you can make them move and poke them and pretty much play with them all day and you wont hurt him/her. just for fun.....if you put a flashlight to your stomache after the 6th month when their eyes open they will play with the light. its fun.

  • no. you will not. it would take so much force to cause harm to the fetus, that you would also be in dire pain.

    no worries! when I was preggo, my babies liked to hang up in my ribcage, and I had to move them all the time.

  • no, sometimes you kind of have to move the baby around for comfort, I used to have to move the baby to the side a little to reach around and wipe myself after going to the bathroom and to tie my shoes (when I was 8-9 months pregnant).

  • I wouldnt be trying to move the baby but thats me, they can turn them selves when there uncomfortable you dont have to do it for them. Being uncomforable comes along with being pregnant so i would just deal with it as best as possible cause you might be hurting the baby by poking at him just imagine if that was you in there being poked.

  • No you wont hurt you baby, I poke at my belly, sometimes my son pokes back,sorta,LOL! If your baby shifts to and uncomfortable position, rub the side of your belly and baby will scoot over.
