  • May just be how she likes it! Could be how you sleep, could just be how your internal organs are currently arranged. I wouldn't worry too much, mama. They move around in there right up until they come out! As long as she's having some movements, I wouldn't worry. Many babies prefer one area. My son loved to keep his feet lodged into my ribs. Fun! =)

  • How far along are you? She could also just be running out of room in your uterus.

  • Nothing's wrong. She's probably just most comfortable there!

  • My first 2 pregnancies my boys found their position on my left side and pretty much camped out their the entire pregnancy and they are happy and healthy. The baby I am carrying right now likes to camp out sideways. But this one does a lot more flips and turns my boys never did.

    Good luck and you have nothing to worry about as long as you continue to feel movement.

  • both of my children and my one "in the oven" LOVED the right side, i feel her kick me on the left side but she mainly hangs out on the right. my doctor told me that my woman parts are actually tilted a little to the right......when i heard that i learned that sex was better when i tilted my right hip slightly up - i had done that for awhile subconsciously lol i know it sounds crazy
