I love love love to feel my baby kick. Muffin has been kicking me black and blue since week 16. All day long kick kick kick, stop for an hour or two, then kick kick kick. I find them comforting to know that Muffin is alive and well, and I love to get him to respond to stimuli like pokes, jiggles and noises.<br><span style="font-size:x-large;">BUT</span> (yes, there's a but)<br>
If he does not stop whaling away on my bladder I am going to have a serious mental break. I am tired of going to the bathroom so much, only to have a teeny tiny dribble come out. Not to mention it HURTS LIKE %@&$!! He will not budge. I have poked and moved and tried to change my position. THIS SUCKS!

I have a really strong feeling that this is a boy, and with all this activity I'm pretty sure I'm in for a little Johnboy. My DH was a sweet-faced little blonde Dutchboy/HOLY TERROR according to his mum, so I think I can safely look forward to an angel-faced rough and tumble little one. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy">: I'm only 22...I can handle this...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

Oh, you can handle it, but believe me, there will be moments...no matter how young you are! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"><br><br>
Our little boy seems much more calm than our little girl... so the activity doesn't really represent gender in our case. I was certain she was a boy b/c she was so active, and when she came out and they told me what she was, I couldn't believe it. That's why this time I found out (yesterday).

I seriously think that a lot of the time we misinterpret the feeling of having Braxton Hicks contractions, which feel like something's pressing on the bladder, with the baby jumping on it.<br><br>
It could just be your uterus doing its thang, and not the baby at all.<br><br>
My bellybabe is pretty quiet, but I feel all bladder pinchy all the time and go to pee and only a little comes out.

Can you try doing some inversions or something? Sometimes that can encourage baby to change positions.

My little dude likes to kick my cervix. That's fun, let me tell you. Tap tap tap. Yargh. Fortunately, he only does it once a day or so. His sister kicks more, but she tends to kick my right side, so not uncomfortable.

a friend at work felt the baby kick yesterday and told me "good luck with that when it's fully grown. my boy was lazy, never bothered me much"<br>
bully for you. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:<br><br>
i've started referring to the baby as "the little pisser" as it kicks whenever it is feeling squished: full bladder, full stomach, something on my stomach. very vocal with it's opinions. DH has always liked to put his head on my stomach at the end of the day when he's really stressed or tired.<br><br>
the baby has started moving to kick him squarely in the head.
