Anyone else think their little ones are going through growth spurts the last few days? My belly has felt SOOO tight, like it's stretched to capacity the last few days, and I suddenly feel HUGE! I haven't taken any pictures for comparison yet, but I'm sure my little boy is having a growth spurt. I don't remember at what point this happened the first time around but I was just wondering if anyone else is feeling the tight stretchy feeling lately, too.<br><br>
Also, I have to say it is SO weird having a posterior placenta this time. I don't EVER remember kicks and bumps and nudges feeling SO strong. I had anterior placenta last time so it kind of padded all the movement. Sometimes a particularly hard kick will catch me totally off guard. Lol. I love it!

Yes, my belly feels tight and hard, even painful at times like she's about to bust out! And I'm only 27 weeks!

I think in one of the pregnancy week-by-week emails DH and I get it said there was a growth spurt starting at 31 weeks or something. And it definitely coincided with the baby feeling more and more like a huge sack of rocks.<br><br>
My baby's bum is really pointy and bony and BIG and it sticks out of the top of my belly all the time. DH is always feeling it and saying, well he's definitely got my bony ass!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> But yeah, the last 1-2 weeks things are definitely getting BIGGER.

I really hope it's a growth spurt. I'm feeling really crampy today and have been wondering if I'm not having contractions. Although, if I remember correctly, I could tell when I contraction was starting and when it ended. This, it feels like muscle cramps all over my belly and it's really diffuse and I can't really tell when it starts and there's no real end either. It's just slipping in and out of my awareness. I just went for a walk and it's still hanging about. I'll try upping my water and taking a shower and see if that doesn't help. Otherwise I guess I'll call my midwife.

I'm totally with you - on both the growth spurt and the posterior placenta. It was anterior with DD, and I've been amazed at how much movement I can feel! I feel like baby is getting a little short on space in there. Not in my ribs yet, but close - and everything is feeling stretched and my uterus is definitely sore sometimes.<br><br>
Or maybe that's from the 2 year-old climbing on me. Hard to tell.

I'm 29 weeks today and for the last two weeks baby has been up in my ribs wiggling and rolling and kicking. I've also gotten nauseous again and really hungry. I'm chalking it all up to a growth spurt. Sometimes I wonder where the baby will go from here. I guess I'll start growing out instead of up!
