Baby kicks vagina/cervix?!??

Just as it says really! Does anyone else experience this? It feels really strange and sometimes makes me jump when I'm sat down at work. Not sure if it's a kick, punch or even head butt but it's definite movement lol. I'm currently 23wks and been feeling movement all over but sometimes I get it down below....

I did, but then my babies were breech...

CandyKate Thu 20-Mar-14 19:26:54

I got this all the time, it was kind of like the feeling you get when you hit your funny bone but DOWN THERE. Very weird, had it with both DDs, neither was breach.

Yep! Cervix kicks were a weird sensation. 33wks now so haven't had them for a week or two, one bonus of it getting more cramped in there!

Sounds like a breech baby to me. DS used to kick me in the cervix. Told me repeatedly that I thought he was breech. She dismissed this. He was footling breech, diagnosed when I was 10 cm dilated, and delivered by emcs.

Bikerunski my MW also insisted dd was head down - was my third breech baby so I knew that she wasn't. Thankfully a student agreed with me and sent me for a scan.
But to get to 10cm with a footling shock. Glad you were ok.

Won't baby turn though with me only being 23wks ? Head was down at 20wk scan.

I have another scan in 4 weeks so guess I will see for myself then. Is it something to worry about at this stage though?

MrsMcEnroe Thu 20-Mar-14 19:48:57

I had kicks/punches to the cervix with both my pregnancies and my God it was painful!

Both my babies were born head down but back-to-back, not sure if that's relevant or not. They were still punching me in the cervix and bladder (that was even more agonising!) right up until the night before I went into labour each time...

MrsMcEnroe Thu 20-Mar-14 19:50:43

The baby's head won't engage until much later in your pregnancy, don't worry at this stage smile. S/he still has far too much room to move about!

LongTailedTit Thu 20-Mar-14 19:58:55

Plenty of room to move around at your stage so no need to worry about breech yet - mine's head down now at 33wks (well, was at last week's scan anyway!). Back to back too, but head down at least.

SmileAndNod Thu 20-Mar-14 20:00:34

No need to worry at this stage, still plenty of time to turn smile. Didn't mean to worry you, sorry.

Mine has his hands over his head quite a lot and I experience this all the time - at the moment his head is really wedged in there and he now headbutts me, very uncomfortable!!!

Loopylouu Thu 20-Mar-14 21:16:43

I've had this all the way through.

Now 38 weeks and omg, sometimes I can't walk,it feels like I have a knife in my cervix.

Legalbaby79 Thu 20-Mar-14 21:23:56

I call it tub thumping ..... Interesting what people are saying about breech babies !!! My MW said baby was down but I ve had my suspicions all along

kally195 Thu 20-Mar-14 21:37:59

I'm 32 weeks and I get this - punches to the cervix at the same time as massive boots to the bottom of my ribs. I think she thinks it is funny.

firstbaby01 Thu 20-Mar-14 21:42:43

Yep I get this almost every day! it feels so wierd but definately feels like a kick in the fanjo

PenguinsEatSpinach Thu 20-Mar-14 21:48:16

I get them, but they are head butts I think (at least, they were with DD1 and 2 and they feel the same this time).

Boogles91 Thu 20-Mar-14 22:03:36

I get this constantly when hes on his roughts, its kinda like the feeling you get when a farts on its way down only in ya fanny area lol perfectly normal smile have it now as we speak lol then he moves around :p xx

mixi82 Fri 21-Mar-14 02:41:42

Thanks for so many replies. I'm glad I'm not the only one! It's lots better when I lie down, baby moves to a better position but is still down low. Getting movement in my sides at the moment. I can't tell the difference between a kick, punch or head butt yet at this stage but I guess it'll be clearer as I get further along. There's tons of room everywhere else, don't know why baby doesn't hang out up there lol

Boogles91 Fri 21-Mar-14 13:16:12

Lool thats what i think :p though i do get worried when he doesnt move much sad wich i know is normal lol i cant rele tell the difference between kicks n punches though i can when he gets hiccups :p just carnt wait till im further along where i will feel him almost all the time smile ps its really irritating feel when your standing up innit :p xx

mixi82 Fri 21-Mar-14 13:40:51

Yes Boogles!! If I'm chatting to someone stood up and I get a boot down there, I feel so awkward as if they know what just happened! I also stop concentrating on what they're talking about. I wonder if I pull a face when it happens too lol smile

theborrower Fri 21-Mar-14 17:27:38

Yes, I get this - I'm always worried it's going to make me wee myself, it's always so strong blush

And I'm another one that always had kicks very low down and had an undiagnosed breech. The midwife told me it was probably baby punching me, so i imagined her with her hands above her head punching me. I think that was bollocks.

But yes- loads of time to move yet! I'm 25 weeks and it feels like baby is cartwheeling all over the shop sometimes.
