obsessed with pushing on my belly when I feel baby parts...

Anyone else? 
Poor little baby... it probably doesn't feel very nice! (And he always moves right away...)
But whenever i feel a body part poking, I just want to know what it is!!!!
It's just so freaking adorable to feel his little body moving! :-P

    Anything pointy I always push on! I figure it's probably a heel or elbow, so not bound to do much damage to her!

    I do this too!  He has also been transverse/oblique my whole pregnancy - which needless to say is pretty uncomfortable at this point.  Sometimes I rub whatever part is stabbing me in hopes of gently convincing him to change positions, haha.

    I'm always pushing on her too.., I do it gently so I know I am not hurting her. DH told me to stop poking on her because I was going to hurt her. The way I figure it, I am not poking hard and she is super protected in there. I would never poke hard enough to do damage. Just enough to feel around.

    I do this all the time. Used to be he/she would pull their foot back the minute I did. Now instead, they just stretch all the way out and roll their foot across my belly. I almost threw up the first time it was such a weird feeling lol. 

    I tried to get my dad to feel it one time, and he told me to stop pushing on it too lol

    I'm guilty! I love trying to figure out what part of the baby is poking through. He just "swims" away.

    Lol I have to do it too. Confession: sometimes the pressure is so intense I do it just because I know it'll make her stop!

    I do this all the time. The babies have been moving so much lately I'm not sure who is where and who/what is sticking out. DH keeps telling me to stop looking at my belly but I can't help it!

    @AlexisDKruse You could try googling 'leopold's maneuvers' which is what MWs, OBs, nurses use to determine position. You basically try to find two largish bumps (head and bum) and either the long smooth back, or all the bumpy bits (arms and legs) depending on how baby is lying. If you find the head/bum the head is more mobile and moves more freely, the bum doesn't.

    Haha yes glad to hear I'm not the only one!!! So fun.

    When she does big movements I love watching my belly do "shape shifting" - yep there she goes again. Lol
