  • I dunno but with my daughter at 20 weeks she felt like she was literally falling out of me, lots of pressure and everything was fine. I did have braxton hicks too though from dehydration so I was told to get on bed rest for a week and take care of myself.

    At 20 weeks I think the baby moving is still inconsistent. I would try eating something like cereal, Oj and lay on your left side. See if you feel anything or if there is any pain.

    How is your stomach now standing up ? Everything seem fine ?

    If it's just that the baby feels lower as long as you have no crampls, blood, leaking etc..I think everything would be fine.

  • I was thinking about this know if you do feel like you have that gut feeling about something not being right, especially if your hubby thinks something looks different it never hurts to call the doctor or go in. By the way if your hospital has a maternity entrance, it's better to show up there then the ER.

    I hope everything is fine and good luck with the rest of your pregnancy !!!

  • I had a lot of pressure around that time too, and it seemed like my stomach was changing all the time because he was flipping around to different positions. But if your mommy instinct says something is wrong then by all means go in. But try not to stress out too much. You're doing everything right and I'm sure the baby is fine. Just remember, stress is not good for the baby either! Have something comforting to eat and try to close your eyes for a little while. Putting on an old favorite movie always helps me.

  • It sounds like you're doing the smart thing by going to the ER. I'm sure you're ok, but there's only one way to be sure, please let us know what you hear!
