  • at 22 weeks you uterus is barely above the belly button and the baby is only half a pound and about 6 inches long. You may have something else going on.

  • I feel your pain!!!! Im about 26 weeks and my son is ALWAYS kicking and sitting in my rib cage area. It hurts so bad to sit up cause he pushes my ribs up. Have you tried getting on all fours and trying to move her that way?? I have tried this and sometimes it works while other times it doesn't. Your probably just carrying higher like I am and there is nothing we can really do about it. WIsh you best of luck!!

  • id be talking to your dr at 22weeks your uterus is just barely above your belly button and you shouldnt be feeling anything that high yet. Usually you dont feel baby in your ribs till around 26 to 30eeks.

  • If you have a small pelvic bone, the baby may not be as low as they think. Maybe you are having a big baby.

  • when I went in for my last sonogram, the baby was in an inconvenient place to get a good look, so the technician bounced the ultrasound tool on my belly a few times and got the baby moving a little bit. Maybe just massage where it hurts and see if you can't coax your little one into a better position
