This baby has always been kicking lower than I'm used to, usually low on my left side. I hadn't felt any hiccups until this weekend, and then bump had them twice. They were really low. Anyone else find themselves holding their breath to try and get rid of the hiccups before realizing that won't work?
I'm wondering if maybe the baby has dropped -- I have never been able to tell in past pregnancies. I gained at least 10 lbs between my last two appointments, where I had never gained more than like 2 (and often had lost weight), but I wasn't measuring more than 4 cms more than my last visit, as I thought I might. I felt huge all of a sudden a couple of weeks ago, but if the baby dropped in the meantime, that would explain things. If what I just said makes any sense, lol. But with #1 and #2, I remember feeling lots in my ribs. With this one, I have a hard time bending over, but don't feel kicks up there.
I wonder if there's a way to figure out where your placenta is without getting an u/s...
Oh, and with this baby, it feels a lot more like rolling or fidgeting than kicking, which is what I remember more with especially #1. I remember being able to grab on to limbs that were sticking my skin out when I was 6 months along, but that hasn't happened with this one. I think I am feeling more movement overall, though.
