Re: help me!

I would say that baby just moved, changed positions or dropped. As long as you're not leaking fluid, I would think that everything is still fine. However if you're concerned you should call you dr. And if you're not comfortable with the care that he's providing you, then get a new dr.! I know it's a bummer in the middle of a pregnancy, but the care of your baby is much more important. I hope that everything goes well for you with the rest of this pregnancy!

Re: help me!

Could your water have broken? If you are sure it didn't, then maybe baby is checking out your back

Re: help me!

oh my goodness! Do you still feel the baby moving? If so, I'd agree with pp that baby just changed positions or dropped. But given your history and that you sound concerned, I think you should call your dr. to be on the safe side. If you're not comfortable with the care you're getting from your doctor, maybe you can call L&D at your hospital and get their advice? KUP!

Re: help me!

Really, is there anyway that your water could have broken without you know it? Seems crazy that you wouldn't know, but your recent picture looks an awful lot like what mine did after my water broke.

I think I'm changing my vote, you should probably be seen right away.

I would go in right away, mama. Hopefully baby just turned or dropped, but better safe than sorry.

Re: help me!

I'd be seen right away. Are you leaking fluid?

Re: help me!

i dont think im leaking any fluid...

im so frustrated with this whole pregnancy, im seeing a new doctor and he just thinks im an idiot...this is my 5th baby...i know my body.

i will admit to being a little freaked out by my absent belly tho...
