    Can someone please tell my husband that I'm not harming the baby when I prod, poke or push her when she moves? He really hates it when I do it and tells me off, but whenever he does the same, he says its fine!!

    Also wondering does anyone else like to show off their bump shape in clothes, or hide it away? I love showing mine off as it grows, in t-shirts or looses shirt, so just wanted to know if anyone else was the same?

    As long as you are not doing it too hard or too often it is fine. When my baby kicks me I sometimes lightly poke them back and then they kick me again, it's like a little game :) The sonographers push harder than that when you go for your ultrasounds and it doesn't cause any problems so I wouldn't worry.

    As for clothes, I prefer wearing clingy tops that show off my bump as then I know everyone realises I am pregnant rather than fat lol.

    It's fine - agree midwives do it a lot harder! I always have some body part that sticks out on the right hand side of my bump and it feels weird so I have to push it back in haha! Xx

    I give mine little pokes all the time as I love it when he pokes me back. I also keep getting an arm or a leg poking out my right side so he gets a little shove :)

    Tight tops all the way for me too, I just look fat if I put floaty ones on.

    I love proding mine and can feel a foot on my left hand side. What does he think the midwives do? Baby is buffeted by the fluid. Tell him to chill and you enjoy. If my lo is quiet I often give it a shove to get some action.
