kicking under my ribs


i had a midwife appointment at 22 weeks, when it shouldve been 24 weeks.
the midwife said thats okay but it means i wont see her for 6 weeks, ie my 28th week.
when i was at my appointment my fundal height was measuring a week and a half ahead.
now i can feel my baby kicking me under the ribs, when the top of my uterus should only be between my belly button an my ribs.
do you think i should be concerned?
maybe phone the midwife or just wait for my 28 week appointment?

Hiya

I'm roughly as far along as you and I get kicked under the ribs too! I assume it's quite normal at this stage . . . . also, I think it will depend on how long/short your body is . . . . people with shorter bodies tend to show a bit sooner and will feel baby higher up sooner than those with longer bods!

I really wouldn't worry about it :-)

I wouldnt worry about it, your baby is obviously just having a good stretch out!!

Your MW will measure you again at the next appointment, I think if you start measuring 3-4 weeks ahead or behind is when they may possibly refer you for a scan to check the size of baby xx
