    When I lean back or lie down, I have a long hard bump across my belly button which I thought was baby although it pretty much stays there.. I poked it today and got a painful sensation (wont be doing that again!) Ha!

    Just wondering if any of you can tell where a foot or bum is at all!? Xx

    I wish I could! Sometimes I think I know, then I get a random kick and think I must be wrong! Even then I suppose we don't know if its a kick or a punch.. Either way I'm constantly getting some kind of battering and still none the wise ;-) havens wife Tueaday finally (haven't seen anyone for 6 weeks!) so will ask then xxx

    I've always got her bum sticking out my bump, well above bellybutton line but moves from side to side. Dependant on which side her bum is, I then get knee and foot out the other side. Worse bit is a foot right up in the ribs or a hand with wiggley little fingers feeling around in lower bump. I'm convinced at times that she's grabbing at stuff, maybe looking for the cord to play with, but sometimes it feels like she's trying to scratch her way out!! Lol I'm sure she's not, but blooming hurts at times!
    Also I've found with the early bonding thing of tickling or rubbing a bit that you can feel, sometimes encourages them to stick that bit out more and then you can have a good feel at what it is! Give it a go cos it's quite funny when they get used to it and you find thrm pushing against your hand as you rub your bump. A lovely feeling too!

    I had a feeling I knew what way he was and that his feet were more on my right side under my ribs just due to the kicking at my ribs. During my last 2 growth scans the sinographer went right round and on that exact bit said and theres his little feet right below your ribs. Just laughed and though I KNEW it. Also a moving bump which I think is his bum above my belly button. I love it!!

    All my life I've been terrified of pregnancy/bumps, even as a kid I'd run away cos I was so freaked out by a thing inside someone's tummy making it move! Since I've been pregnant, I have grown to love it so much! As soon as I could feel any sort of movement, I'd be laying back on the sofa with my phone or the remote balanced on my belly watching it move. Now I can see my whole bump moving around I just sit there watching as she moves and I love it! I thought it'd be freaking me out by now, but it's such a nice feeling and I know it won't last much longer, so I try to make the most of it and the tickling & rubbing really helps me feel closer to her. I'm just hoping it lasts when she arrives! It is nice being able to tickle a little foot here and there. Also I've discovered recently that when she gets hiccups, if I can feel for her bum sticking out and work out which direction her back is going, I try to rub up & down her back (like you would when burping) and it seems to ease the poor little mites hiccups quite well! Discomfort for me is also over quicker then too! Lol the things we do eh?! Hubby thinks I'm nuts always talking to her too hehe I get some very strange looks at times!!
