im 32 weeks and keep getting hurt when baby kicks/squashes bowel(i think its trapped wind that he's squishing - very painful) jumps on cervix or just stretches ouch! its definately pain related to his movement and not just in one place so not concerned but i dont recall this last time. it is sometimes so bad i wince, grimace or swear blush when im caught short. ive been woken up this way too which is not nice sad anyone else?

Yes me too, I'm 28 weeks and baby has now set up a more prolonged and co-ordinated attack on my bladder. I physically jumped yesterday and thougt babies foot was going to make an early appearance iykwim grin

Hope it eases up for you soon, though realistically will probably ease up in approx 8 weeks smile

Sorry, just read back my response and it doesn't come across as very sympathetic blush I didn't mean to be flippant at all. Hope you get some undisturbed sleep and less pummeling over the next few weeks.

Ohwhat thanks for your replies smile i didnt think you were flippant/ unsympathetic at all! both posts made me chuckle!!! wink

I'm at 37 weeks, and if I hadn't seen her little feet on a scan I'd be convinced that she actually had sharp little hooves instead, the amount of pain she causes when she digs them into me Sharp little elbows as well.

Danielle91011 Thu 22-Oct-09 19:35:25

I thought i was the only one!!!! I have my hands on my belly constantly trying to cusion the digs and stop baby coming out the top (thats exactly what i think will happen sometimes!). I'm 38 weeks and been sure my baby has knives and steel rods in there and have felt like that since about 25 weeks!! Good luck to you all and hope it doesn't get too bad grin

Danielle91011 Thu 22-Oct-09 19:37:06

ooh, i also got a sure sharp punch to my bladder earlier as i was telling a friend how much he/she was hurting nice of my baby!!!

I'm 31 weeks and dd has been attacking my left ovary for at least four weeks. Wierd cos that's the one she was conceived from I also leap and yelp at times. Not very nice.. ds was a real kicker, this ones a stretcher... she's currently transverse and keeps doing that thing when you stretch in the morning making me think I'm actually going to split down the sides!

Danielle91011 Thu 22-Oct-09 20:07:12

ha ha headfairy - i know how you feel, mine is also transverse (well constantly moves) and also think my sides are going to explode when he stretches in transverse position - i think he's about a meter long and almost have to try and push him back when he stretches like that!! i find lying on my side (like when in bed) helps him to move lengthways again - albeit he will generally move back again throughout the day - but it does make it a bit more comfortable for the time being. i guess he doesn't like my lying directly on his head or his feet ( which i do feel terribly bad for)!!!

Does anyone also feel like theirs is pushing of a hip bone and then stretching up to the opposite corner and out the top of your belly??? Mine has just done that and i have to try and put my hand under the bump between my hip and baby cos it's so painfull on my poor hip!!!

Danielle91011 Thu 22-Oct-09 20:08:45

sorry headfairy - don't mean to sound unsympathetic by saying ha ha - it just made me laugh as mine does exactly that but it's not comfortable at all!! Hope you don't take it the wrong way!!! x

HeadFairy Thu 22-Oct-09 20:10:59

Don't worry Danielle... I am keeping a sense of humour about it...

I have visions of dd stretching cat like and yawning.

muddle78 Thu 22-Oct-09 20:11:47

nice to know im not alone grin

headfairy i keep saying to dp that this baby cant want siblings as my ovaries are also under attack?!

8 weeks to go and it can only get worse... i confess im a bit worried shock

DS2 physically hurt me when he moved near the end.
He felt like he was scraping the inside of my belly. I didn't have much fluid either - I was told there wasn't much room for any.
I had terrible pain on the insides of my hips too.
Once I had given birth to him my hips felt bruised inside for weeks.

Glad to get him out!

Subsequent one was smaller, thank God, and am hoping this one will be too.

ArghhhhmazingBouncingSpider Thu 22-Oct-09 20:14:32

Im 32 weeks and think my baby is trying to claw her way out rather than go down the traditional route. Even now as I type im grimacing as she pummels away with her little fists/feet/elbows/knees/fangs.

HeadFairy Thu 22-Oct-09 20:17:36

I'm assuming its my ovary muddle... it's pretty tender, it's just inside my hip bone and it's too near the front to be a kidney. Can't be much else down there unless she's been trampling the same bit of lower bowel!

I must admit a teeny part of me thinks you can stay there dd as it'll mean a section the week before Christmas for me instead of being heavily pg on Christmas day. That's terrible isn't it? Totally selfish!

muddle78 Thu 22-Oct-09 20:20:09

lmao at argh's babys fangs grin

Danielle91011 Thu 22-Oct-09 20:41:55

head fairy - c section isn't selfish - im going for one due to low placenta - and also possibility of baby not being right position - should be getting a date on tuesday and will have to be end of next week or early part of following - if not i'm almost positive i'll knock the consultant out . not sure i can go much longer and certainly would not make it past 40 weeks!!!!

At least you'll be 'reasonably' settled for xmas then and can enjoy a drink

HeadFairy Thu 22-Oct-09 20:50:13

Low lying placenta sounds like a pretty good excuse to me. I'm just being selfish because it'll mean I can have a decent Christmas day.

yikes lottie... you win !!!! OMG cant imagine shock

Issy42 Sun 25-Oct-09 22:41:55

Reading your posts, I'm feeling grateful for my anterior placenta which is cushioning most of the movement for me. Am only 28 weeks but her favourite position is breech and I'm sure in the last week she's been pushing her head under my ribs and stretching her arms as wide as possible. My ribs really hurt shock and I can't bend over properly to eat as head is in the way - good practice for trying to eat when breastfeeding though. Hoping she turns round soon ... but then she'll just kick me in the ribs instead grin.

Boogellyboo Mon 26-Oct-09 11:37:02

Issy Ive got anterior placenta too, believe me when you get to 37+ weeks you'll feel every movement regardless of where your placenta is! My belly monkey spent all day yesterday trying to use my ribs as ladders, Im sure shes actually a bat hanging upside down with her feet hooked on my ribs hmm

It was quite funny as my sister was staying over and she's only 20 weeks, she seemed quite freaked out watching my bump roll about and seeing me yelp in pain knowing she's got all this to come.

For achy bladder because of babys position I do gentle strumming of my fingers a little higher on the bump and that seems to spark their curiosity to move - even slightly which gives a bit of relief - good luck - I know what it's like!

blushes Mon 26-Oct-09 22:25:29

Does anyone else feel like the baby is kicking their, er, back passage? I get some really quite painful shoves low down and facing towards the back. It almost feels impossible that she could reach down there, but it's unmistakably baby movements and not wind or something else. Oh dear... she is kicking my ass already.
