Re: Kicking in the ribs
I can SOOO relate to this!!! Isaiah LOVED to put his foot in my ribs, and this baby is doing it just as well! To me it feels like his foot is between my ribs, like he is hanging upside down from it. Sometimes it takes my breath away and I have to push him down. I have to be careful how hard I push, because sometimes I push him right down into my bladder and almost pee my pants. I can feel his body when I push, and sometimes he doesn't want to go. Tonight we were at a restaurant and I had to sit with my hand balled up in a fist "blocking" him from getting up there. He was pretty determined, but I won....for a minute. As soon as I moved my hand, he was right back there. My OB told me (with my first) that they like the warmth of your liver and that's why they gravitate there. I suppose my bladder is quite warm when it's full as well, since he likes it there occasionally!
The way to love anything is to realize that it might be lost
