Baby Kicking?

I’m so curious about this topic alone it’s not even funny 😭. I’ve been told at my last appointment that my baby’s head was down & that it was a good thing at the gestational week I was at so I’m thinking that’s why her kicks I normally feel lower now push my boob up 😭. So is it just me or now that I’m 28 weeks her head is still down & the movement I feel in my rib too is her feet? Another thing is I seen a lot of videos of people being able to record their bellies & see the actual foot moving & im only getting jiggles 😩. I feel her kicks like you can confuse them for the very first ones you feel (flutters) they’re full on kicks but I can’t see it yet. Am I suppose to , is something wrong or I’m just crazy & over thinking it ??

It’s completely normal, do you know where your placenta is positioned? I had an anterior placenta so kicks where ‘blocked’ by the placenta so even though I could see all the movement, I couldn’t see actual imprints of baby’s feed or hands

@Mia I could never see on mine because of the way the ultrasound was positioned on my stomach, it would be around the placenta x

I’m not sure but that’s a great question to ask my doctor I’m curious now at this point 🤔. I do have an ultrasound picture could you tell from that since you’ve been through it before?

I always get worried about baby movement, and I am 39 weeks I have not once been able to get a video of baby moving in my belly... but my midwife assured me she is moving a lot, I still feel her kicks but sometimes pretty faint, my midwife just told me that I have strong stomach muscles cause she knew she was kicking but you can only see faint movement and kicks or rolls aren’t always very strong lol!

Every baby is different. My first 2 didn't kick hard but this one goes crazy. The dr, nurse, and tech all made multiple comments about how active and strong she is. They said they haven't seen it in a long time. Depends on the baby I guess.

I know that but when it’s time for scans she’s moving (still can’t see her) like just very active. Her last scan she was moving around so much & it was like she was messing with the ultrasound tech lol. She was trying to get a clear picture of her face & wouldn’t move her little hands even when they had to like jiggle my stomach she just would not budge.

I think as long as you feel baby moving, you are good. I do know that when baby switches positions you'll feel kicks higher then before cuz her feet are higher. We over think a lot Mama, try not to stress! And always ask your doctor if your concerned. Only stupid question is the one you don't ask. That's what they are there for
