baby kicking crap out of me

23 weeks, baby will not stop moving. Feel like I'm getting kicked 24/7, massive movements rolling my whole bump. She is either a kick boxer, a trampolinist or a gymnast. Anyone else being beaten from the inside???

Yes and little one will only get stronger! I'm 28w and my least favourite kicks are the ones to the bladder or the bowels that make me have to run to the toilet!

I just think of it as their way of saying - I'm doing ok here mum! yes it's distracting and sometimes painful (esp when they get big enough to catch a rib or two) but also reassuring smile

It's such a bizarre feeling. Feels like the bit in alien when it comes out his chest haha! I have an anterior placenta with nothing other than uterus wall between baby and bladder, so I'm looking forward to wetting myself as she gets bigger.

Honestly, just enjoy it. I remember dd almost causing me to crash my car with a kick to the ribs but, afterwards, I really missed the sensation. I had an anterior placenta too but never struggled with bladder control, mostly because dd preferred sitting on my stomach!

At least you know she's OK in there! DS just kind of wriggled, and I kept wondering, is it him or is it wind?

I'm 27+5 and there's two in there kicking away, I have a cephalic baby and a breech baby and I swear some days they're kicking each other in the face! I get kicked in the ribs and the bladder at the same time - definitely going to be boxers when they're older I think grin

I'm 28 weeks and the constant wriggling and booting keeps me up all night. Today he/she has been a bit quieter though and I missed it so now laid on sofa waiting for him/her to start up again!

Yep, 27+2 here and he seems to be moving constantly. I love it except at night when he throws a little dance party on my bladder and it's so funny watching my stomach do the Alien thing.

But yeah...it gets a bit much when I can't lean forward without getting booted in the ribs, or when I'm walking down the road minding my own business and almost wet myself because he's squished my bladder.

I think mine's a dancer.
