I am having a VERY hard time with this pregnancy. Yes there is my kidney stones and chronic kidney pain but that is with me, not the baby. This baby, Squishy, is driving me INSANE!
DS was a normal mover. Not too many painful kicks or movements. DD barely moved at all. And when she did it was extremely gentle. But now I know it was due to her connective tissue disorder. But Squishy? This child NEVER stops! And it HURTS!
I have felt Squishy move since I was 14 weeks. I could swear I was feeling something before that but it was definite at 14 weeks. And as Squishy has been getting bigger, the kicks and movement have been getting stronger. And I would say about 25% of those are painful. I was actually "beat up" the other week because "he" (we are team green but I think is a boy) repeatedly kicked me right next to my right ribs for an hour. And for about a day afterwards, I felt like I had an internal bruise. I even tried to move Squishy so that "he" would kick someplace else or stop kicking, but no go. And on Wednesday, I felt like I got stabbed on either side of my belly with a knife when Squishy did something. I screamed out in pain and scared DD. And right now my belly looks like the scene right before the alien pops out of the chest of the host in the Alien movies. And about every 30 secs, the movement is very painful that I either cringe or cry out.
First off, is this normal? I hear from my OB that I am being silly and other people think I am joking.
Second, anyone else? Am I the only pregnant woman (current or past) that has a violent kicker?

Feed your children human milk as long as possible, it might save their life. It did my son's.
