Just curious....

Are you able to tell what position your baby is in by his/her movements?

I'm 25 weeks right now and the majority of the hard movements are down towards my pelvic bone and I get little movement on my right side underneth my ribs.  I'm assuming that the harder movements would be kicks meaning she's currently head up! Does this sound right?

Re: Just curious....

  • I agree with your logic. Sometimes I can tell, sometimes I can' just varies. I think she changes position a lot. I praise her when I think she is head down. ;)

    She is almost always on my right side, though!

  • I asked my doctor about this at my last appointment, since LO's movements are ALL over the place.  she said the babies are typically still moving a LOT until 32ish weeks, when they start getting into head-down position for birth. 

    sometimes I swear the baby is kicking my cervix, then other times I get such painful jabs to the ribs that I know its feet not hands, so I'm pretty sure baby is just moving a lot still.

  • Nope, I'm terrible about that.  When I was pregnant with DD, she had what I thought was her head wedged in my right ribs for the last 2 months.  I had an ultrasound around 34ish weeks that showed it was her butt wedged in my ribs.  lol 

    Although with her all I ever felt were kicks/punches.  With this guy, I swear he's constantly doing summersaults.  I rarely feel kicks/punches, all I ever feel is rolling movements.  So I know he's still flipping around in there.

  • I'm carrying pretty low.  I'll occasionally feel him moving around mid belly and just a bit above my belly button...more off to the side.  But no higher than that.  Most of the movements I feel are still down low.  I'm guessing he's still transverse.

    My baby girl always lays low. She usually kicks on the left side of my stomach.

    This LO has been head down each time I go in for a visit so I think it's safe to say he's staying that way.  *Knocks on wood* I get some hard movement down there too and it's his head or fists knocking around
