  • The baby could be hitting or kicking a nerve, I wouldn't worry but if it continues talk to your doc. Pregnancy comes with alot of unusual pains.

  • Your baby could be kicking an organ or a muscle or a rib. I have this one little spot up near my ribs but not quite on my ribs that my baby likes to kick. She spends a lot of her time up there moving all her little limbs around and it hurts like hell. I've even gotten so uncomfortable that I've said out loud "WTF baby girl?!" Hahaha.

    I guess if anything starts cramping you should talk to your doctor. They'll probably just tell you it's the baby moving or it's growing pains.
