This is a new game the baby and I have started playing, anyone else doing it?<br>
Baby jabs a foot out as hard as humanly possible, I grab/pinch it, baby yanks it away quickly and jabs it in another spot and it continues on and on. At first this would only go on for a few minutes but yesterday we played for almost 15 minutes. It's the cutest thing ever. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

How cool is that! I often held my hand between babies foot and my ribs with my other two pregnancies, but this little guy is so low and my placenta is high and anterior so I don't have to do that this time.<br><br>
My baby apparently has really good hearing...we are always startling him with loud sounds...dropping dishes, closing doors, etc. I can even feel his little arms going up. Poor guy, he's going to come shell shocked (we do have a loud house).<br><br>

Yes! I love to play poke the foot. The baby - probably not so much. But being overdue now it is reassuring for me. I know if I need to check in with the babe to make sure all is well I can rub his/her feet which have been in the same spot for about two weeks now. I am sure I am waking him/her up from a nap, but it gets him moving.

I don't know how you guys know what you're feeling or how you can grab anything. I feel big bumps moving around and poking out, but could never identify a foot, let alone grab it through all the... padding <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

If you can feel the baby's spine, it's fun to poke along up and down it until the baby vibrates with the chills. I love the foot poking game, too. sometimes when baby is completely stretched out (straight legged, where belly is like a football) I can feel the whole outline of the length of her legs, too.<br><br>
Arms are an issue- her hands are always up by her face and constantly poking into my bladder / cervix. I swear, I would NOT be surprised if she were born with her hands and her head at the same time (I've seen pictures of this, it looks terribly painful for the baby. I imagine it isn't comfortable for the mother either, but seriously, as if you'd even notice EXTRA discomfort???)

I play the "poke the foot" game. My belly is too tight to actually grab, though. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I poke his/her bum when he/she pokes my cervix, otherwise I just pat or rub the top of my belly/baby's bum a lot in the stereotypical preggo woman way.

Definitely play poke the foot/leg. I just commented to dp last night that I don't think I've ever felt an arm. Where are those little arms at anyway? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/headscratch.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="headscratch">
