Moving babies

So in an attempt to shift the babies off my cervix, I thought some drastic actions may help.  On Saturday morning I wedged myself on my back against our cupboard with my legs up on the cupboard at about a 40 degree angle (best angle I could achieve considering the soccer ball in my tummy!). 

Once I had caught my breath, I attempted to lift my hips up off the ground leaning on my elbows. Whoar!!! I had no idea how heavy I was lol!  I could only manage to keep the pose for about a count of 10 before collapsing! And I could only do it twice!  All the while asking our dear little girl to move on down or up depending on which way you are looking at it...

Yes, I was quite a sight! Alas, however, they do not appear to have moved and I can quite definitely feel her head still pushing against my cervix and his little feet kicking me right down there - quite painful sometimes! Naughty little sausages.

They are moving and squiggling about more and more which is fantastic - more more more!  DH actually felt our little girl kick for the first time which was such a special moment. Her legs stretch up to the RHS of my belly so she is easier to feel while his legs are clearly down towards the bottom on top of her.

The other night I had a dream that I was feeling someone's babies moving with my hand on their belly...and I woke up and realised it was actually me and them I was feeling. Simply the best thing about pregnancy so far!

Oh yes...and only 3 more sleeps until I see them again - how lucky am I?  But also slightly nervous considering it is an anatomy re-check at the Fetal Assessment Centre and we will be checking some of the measurements again and our girl's fluid. All must be well.


  1. That's so cool about your dream! Hope all is well at the next ultrasound as well.

  2. ROFL...that is too funny about your attempt to move them. I had a good laugh picturing that. Hoping the u/s goes well and everything is as it should be or improving at least :)

  3. I nearly wet myself picturing you trying to get them to move! It never even occurred to me to try get my LG to move when she was down on my cervix. Got everything crossed for your scan that it is nothing but good news.
