to worry Im squishing my baby...

This is my 2nd pregnancy so feel like I should know better but... I'm 25 weeks and every time I bend (ie even raise up my leg to tie my laces) I gets lots of squirms really low down. Mainly at the sides of my pelvis. Ditto as soon as I lie on my side, ie kicks up that side. Im really worried that Im causing him (its a boy) discomfort. Is that possible? Or is it just that I can feel the movement more in those positions? Thanks :)

You can just feel the movements more in those positions, that's the reason why they say if you've got reduced movements you should have a cold drink and lay on your side
Your baby is surrounded by so much amniotic fluid that unless you have a serious knock, not much is going to harm him!

Thank you Queen! I do know that, but it just feels so much like an 'oy get off' reaction from baby that Ive been getting worried!

He can probably feel the movement andut just makes him squirm a bit.

I get the worry, my ds was 3 when I was pregnant with the youngest, he's a very very rambunctious child with suspected autism so there was quite a few moments where I thought DD had been squashed!
