Baby kicking, It's VERYYYY painful...what to do?

I am 6 month's pregnant with my second child. I had a girl first and that pregnancy was a breeze. I am now having a boy and it feels as if he is clawing his way out sometimes. It is so painful I feel like rolling into a ball sometimes. anyone experience this while pregnant? If so how did you get passed it? I just try moving around in different positions sometimes with a pillow between my legs. Nothing so far has worked. I went from no kicks in the first 5 months to major pain. any idea's might help!! thanks!!

  • LOL have a fun 3 more months...My son did that from the moment he started moving I thought he was digging a new way out never stopped until he was out. my ribs, pelvic bone, my EVERYTHING hurt. and now he's 5 months old and I miss those jabs and kicks. alot of the movements he did in my belly like push his feet back and forth on eachother and then into my ribs he still does now.

  • Have you ever tried massage therapy? I hear that calms the mother and the baby down after a session...see if that works.

  • A massage would be nice but I am afraid to let someone touch me it hurts so can actually see a foot or a little hand come up and stretch my skin like an inch and a half. while my hubby is excited I'm freakin out...Maybe It's a boy thing cause my daughter didn't do that she was calm.

  • My friend would rock in a rocker and that would put her baby to sleep or at least settle her down. I dont complain anymore since the last time I complained she barely moved for 4 days but the other day I had that clawing feeling and I just kept rubbing my stomach and she eventually settled down. Good Luck

  • I get in a lot of pain when I walk but not laying down...maybe you're the opposite and need to move around? Avoid caffiene and sugar. (that includes chocolate, too! Chocolate has a lot of caffiene in it)
