  • I could be your little ones hands or his/her head moving around. i can still remember what it felt like when my son would do this. He was head down from 30 weeks and stayed there. i had a bruise on my ribs from his heel and I could constantly feel him moving his head around down there LOL

  • Yep that would be babies head or hands. I feel it all the time and then she will shove her feet up under my ribs. Atleast we can be thankful that at this point they are head down. Lets just hope they stay that way. She has been head down the whole pregnancy so she must like the little cozy hole. Hopefully she continues to like it :)

  • for me this is my sons hands up by his face. When i was checked for dilation by my OB he actually hit her hand lol. if you are truly concerned about it then i would ask your OB as they can feel and see exactly what it is, but my son is head down and it is definitely his hands as we have seen it on US.
