is it normal that my baby usually only kicks, jabs, or whatever the babe is doing in there on my right side....?

i hardly ever feel any movement on my left side.....

Just be glad it's not your left side! Mine was constantly kicking my left side all week last week, and I'm sure that is what totally liquified the contents of my bowels for 5 days straight.

I have a right-sider too. The last few days she's favored the region a few inches above my belly button but I've never felt her on my left side. It could have something to do with where your placenta sits. Mine is anterior and a lot of it is on the left so it helps cushion some of the blows.

Mine is like that, too. She's head down, with her back along my left side & the placenta is also on the left...so there's really only one area for her to be kicking!

When he's on the side, it's always left for me. Same with DS#1, oddly enough. Both seem to like the same positions! Mostly though, he's sitting in the middle, head down and punching my bladder.
It's at night when I lay on my left side that I sometimes feel some little punches there on the very far left.

*waves* I have a right side baby too! Not only does she kick mostly over there (with her little feet up under my ribs to kick at my liver!) but sometimes her whole body is off to the right- as in, my belly only bulges on one side. It looks very strange.

I am feeling slightly left out, as I feel movement mostly on the left side!


My stretch marks are even higher on that side.

That is so bizarre that so many of us have right siders! Mine is the same way! And he will settle his whole body on the right, too, making my tummy bulge out on the one side. Is it something about October babies?

Just ringin' in with another right side vote.
I feel most of the movement on the right, but recently started feeling big pushes at the top, too. Fun - not painful yet, thankfully. However, I think the babe was kickin my back earlier today. UGH!!!! Hope s/he doesn't like that cause I SURE didn't!!!
