I have to really concentrate to feel this kid at all. It's pretty disconcerting, TBH.
It has a lot to do with your placenta placement, I'm sure. I had a posterior placenta with DD, and her kicks got uncomfortable right around 30-32 weeks.
My kicks are felt super low. After learning that LO is booty down, it is either her booty or some feet. So, with it being on my cervix, that gets a little uncomfortable at times.
LuvMyBostons:How do you mean, uncomfortable?? My placenta is anterior and the kicks are low right now, like on my cervix, which are uncomfortable...but how to the kicks change?

I know that in saying getting kicked in my cervix is pretty uncomfortable will only tempt Murphy's Law and make the pain worse...but it honestly is a weird ass feeling!
Re: Kicks to the cervix
Definately a wierd feeling and causes preasure like pain after some times. The only way i can describe it is like LO is using the back of my cervix like a spring board. The strong kicks are definately in the lower areas, last ultrasound showed the baby was breech. Have to wear panty liners for insurance, kicks to the bladder are a nuce surprise too! I've only felt full body turns or big movements a hand full of times. Not sure if that has to do with the placenta's position.
RACox:I have an anterior placenta and my little guy's kicks haven't gotten very uncomfortable. The most uncomfortable thing so far is when he pushes out in one spot or kicks my ribs/bones or cervix. I've noticed them becoming much stronger, and more like actual movements instead of just kicks like before. But nothing too uncomfortable yet!
This exactly. My LO is headdown, but face up so she kicks me high on my left side under my ribs, but it's more like tap-dancing. The big movements I feel are to the left of my belly-button...I think she's drawing her knees towards her chest and they straightening her legs back out again. Everyonce in a while I'll feel a little jab on my cervix...her elbow perhaps? But nothing uncomfortable.
Here's a Q for you anterior placent ladies....anyone NOT feeling hiccups? I am not. I asked my doc and she said that was fine and even showed us the LO "practice breathing" on the u/s monitor at our last appt.
