Baby is a little bit engaged (4/5 last time I saw midwife but feels a bit lower down since then). It is making some funny movements though - ones that really don't seem that pleasant, like it is plucking my bladder with it's fingers (which possible it is), hooking my ribs with its toes (which it possibly also is) and headbutting the top of my cervix (almost definitely is). Is it usual for movements at this stage to be icky and unpleasant rather than the nice flips and shuffles from a few weeks ago?
I dont know if it is normal, but bloody unpleasant. I was convinced my DD was trying to kick her way out through my chest and begged the obstetrician I saw to deliver her before she stopped my heart. the OB looked like this and declined. OTOH, I really loathed the feel of DD moving at all and only encouraged it when I was laying in bed so she would kick DH. Not long now for you though.
I'm already finding some movements quite uncomfortable and I'm only 35wks. When dd was inside I was sure she was poking me in the cervix and trying to push her way out, turns out she was as she was born with her hand on her head!
I'm sure mine is going to come out fist first like superman by the way he enjoys punching my cervix! very strange feeling, i didn't know where my cervix was until recently (well, i knew it wasn't in my foot but you know what i mean).
I feel the same, like it is big enough to hit hip bones and kick me in ribs at the same time. MW said an active baby is a healthy baby so I guess it is good. Do sometimes feel like I have to hold onto seat while it moves as it is quite uncomfortable.
