    Hi girls,

    Im nearly 22 weeks and have been feeling my little man properly for the last week or so. Ive got an anterior placenta so kicks are muffled and its hard to know what a proper kick feels like. Yesterday I had a strange pulsating like feeling, not constant but perhaps a few an hour, which was very low near my bladder. Im wondering if my little man was kicking me down there...it was a strange feeling, and I needed to wee a lot.......sound familiar to anyone??

    When my little chap first started kicking 'down there' that was exactly how I felt! I was convinced he was just going to drop out. :dohh: The more he's done it though, the more I've got used to it. Really wierd when they're kicking around your bladder isn't it?! Like we don't need to wee enough already!

    Same ^ !! I'm TERRIFIED the shooting pains up through my vagina/cervix is my cervix opening - I haven't felt any kicks yet, just bubbles, is it possible to feel baby kicking cervix but not real kicks out front?!

    Yes- I thought the little guy was definitely kicking the bladder over and over. Made me have to go! You realize they flip all around at this stage, right? Doing acrobats constantly? My doc told and books told me that-- they are the most active they will be because soon they will get bigger and have less room to "play" --
