  • I would drink some juice and lay down for a bit, my little guy would always wiggle away from the ribs for a little bit after doing that.

  • two things worked for me (well, sometimes)
    laying on your side in the opposite direction the baby is laying (so it would be laying on your left). stick a pillow or two between your knees. another thing is to do a "cat stretch". get on all fours, laying your forearms on the floor, resting on your elbows. stick your hiney as far up in the air as you comfortably can. you may even push a little on your right side to get the baby to move a little more. gravity will pull your baby out of its spot a little bit. i used to have to do this several times a day. hope you find something that can help a little!

  • Sing... Sounds silly but sing, either you or your husband. And while you sing you need to have your husband (boyfriend) rub your tummy on the left side; while laying on your left side.
