lizzie - Mine likes to stretch too. Yesterday was the strangest one yet. He pushed his foot all the way out and I could distinctively see it to the point where I grabbed onto it and shook it a little. I felt straight out of the Alien movie. :)
anyone else had painful baby kicks? - Page 2
LOL - that is so cute!
I don't know if it was here in our DDC or not, but I read one lady saying that her baby would push their foot out like that, and she'd hold it, and the baby kept doing that, like they enjoyed the contact. Then when her baby was born, they *still* enjoyed stretching their foot for the mama to hold onto. Just adorable. ;)
I get the butt sticking out real high and quite a bit of back now in the last couple days. I've been rubbing the little bottom and back and I swear the baby pushes out a little bit like it's enjoying the contact.
My chiro's wife told me how she would do the same thing and to this day her daughter loves her back being rubbed like that
My little one has been doing that for about a month now. It will stick its butt out on my right side and you can see the lump. I also like to rub it and talk to it then. The other day though, DH and i were early for our birth class and i took the chance to take a quick nap in the car. just as i was dozing i got what i can only presume was an elbow to the pelvic bone. i jumped and squawked, scaring my husband! other than that, i've been getting fists to the cervix, colon, and bladder, and feet to the ribs. it's uncomfortable, but i'm glad to have such a strong little baby in there!
I talked with a woman in line at the grocery store today who had twin boys - they're about 8 I think, judging in size, they were comparable with my son - and she said one of them had kicked her so hard he broke a rib when she was pg with them.
But like you said, Blixie, at least she knew they were strong!
