  • When i bent over when i was preg, it felt like i was smushing the baby... i could feel a leg or arm crunched into my ribs... made me sick to my stomach.. its normal.. the baby might be sitting is a weird position or he/she could be dropping. just wait till you bend over and pee your pants.. oh what fun! LOL

  • Maybe you could squat or sit on something to pick up stuff.. I get that "squishing the baby" feeling when I bend over but that's about it.

  • Last night I was lying on my side and woke up with the intense feeling that I was laying on something of the babies...foot/leg something. It hurt me,and when I moved, I felt her move and the pain was gone.

    Could be!

  • at the point when you feel pain from bending over i would start squating instead of bending over cuz the pain will just keep getting worse
