Baby feet in my side

Anyone else feeling kicks in their side? She's been in the same position for at least a few days now and it's like her feet are nestled closer to my back than my stomach! Anyone else experiencing this? Is it normal? I've never heard of it before!

  • I mean she's gotta turn sometime! Sounds normal to me. I keep getting feet stuck under the side of my ribs with a tiny butt sticking out on the other side.

  • mine only kicks mostly in my sides, it actually can be painful
  • Loading the player...
  • Mine is in my left side, up towards my ribs, more often than not! And then at night when I'm sleeping (or up at 3 am like right now because she's having a dance party...) I can feel it on both sides like she's pushing in all directions at the same time.
  • Yes she does this same thing to me all the time! My doctor told me before that I have a wide uterus, so I'm thinking it has something to do with that. Tons of stretching room in there! :)
  • Same here. She's all over! I don't think people realize how much room a baby takes up. I feel her by my sides close towards my back as well. When she really moves around it hurts but I am glad that feel her kicks, punches, and hickups. I rather feel her than not :) Don't worry it's normal.
  • @kiam032 I feel the same way! Would rather feel her than not. She's currently kicking my ribs as I'm typing this... Ouch. Lol
  • My LO has been kicking my right side for the past 2 months now. He's starting to get me way up in the ribs now too which is uncomfortable. As long as your Dr isn't concerned I wouldn't be.
  • My little girl is head down, but I swear she thinks the escape route is via my belly button. I figure it's probably her butt pushing out, but oww! Today I was literally doubled over in pain because of her kicks to my right side and her movement down LOWWWW. It was awful! I grabbed an ice pack from the freezer and put it against my belly until she moved away from that spot. Take that, stinker!
  • Yes, I think LO is sideways.   I get the major kicks and pushes on both of my sides.  It's making sleeping really hard
  • @BarrettJ89 yep I've been using ice packs my whole pregnancy to get her to move out of an uncomfortable position! Lol
  • Yeah even at 34 weeks, my gal enjoys being sideways. I can never quite tell her position, but it definitely isn't head down!
