Is this the baby orrrr?

Okay, I’m so confused lol😂 every single morning for the past two weeks, I’ve woken up with a hard protrusion. It never fails. It started at 14 weeks, and I’m now 16 weeks 2 days. The bump has gradually gotten larger. The moment I use the restroom, it’s gone. So I know my bladder is pushing something up, but is this my uterus/baby it’s pushing up orrrr what could it be? I haven’t asked my OB yet because I don’t see her for another 2 weeks! It’s so fascinating to me, but I just want to know what it is! Does this happen to anyone else? My baby is positioned on the lower right side, which convinces me that it’s him, but I’m not sure! I haven’t been able to feel him yet which makes it harder lol

I think its him, because I have women up I did have the same thing happen. It's due to needing to pee, but it can also be from laying on your back since your flat on the bed. You can also make baby pop like this if you are sitting on the couch or on the side of your bed and use your elbows to push yourself up the baby will show kind of like this. It freaked my mom out a little bit, because I showed her lol. She's not used to sponsor else in the family that's pregnant beside herself, because it's been a minute.

I contacted my OB she confirmed it’s Braxton Hicks! She says it happens when you have a full bladder, and it’s completely normal! She says they start as early as 6 weeks, but can become noticeable around the second trimester! I have it again right now, but it’s much bigger than it used to be! Which I’m assuming it’s because my uterus is growing!

Make sure your not sleeping on your back too much, it will eventually be comfortable anyways

I had the same u could see the shape of the baby when I was laying down from around 13 weeks, a little lump at the bottom of my belly. Wouldn’t worry at all it’s just baby! Xx

Happened to me. I had a majorly lumpy belly. Maybe it's because I'm small (it seemed like you could see every little detail of baby's body through my skin). 😂
