Does anyone know why after walking for a while does the baby move right up underneath the ribs and tummy is all hard at the top and soft at the bottom? I asked my midwife and she said its cos my tummy has weak muscles like im not strong enough, it made me feel awful does anyone know if this is definately the reason cos i found it hard to believe cos i thought my tummy muscles were better than that!

i wonder if she just meant that all pregnant women have weak stomach muscles as they are pushed apart when the baby grows. Might be worth giving her a ring back to clarify if she meant just you or all pregnant women? Hard not to be sensitive in our condition though, I know!
