Hi everyone! I am 28 weeks (and 2 days to be exact Smile ) I dont feel the baby a ton, but normally do at least sometime everyday..Anyhow the past 2-3 days I feel like I feel him in my ribs??? Is that too soon for him to be all the way up there already? Maybe not because they are quite long at this point, but still, I thought that wasnt until later. Like when I bend down sometimes I feel like somethins kinda stuck in my rib area on one side or the other...And I just get that feelin like somethins wedged in there sometimes now. Do you think it could be him already or my body just bein weird? Thanks!

If you are 28 weeks, to figure out where the top of your uterus is..All you have to do is measure up 28 centimeters from your pubic bone Smile .

I'm 26 weeks and mine is near there now... I feel little kicks every once in awhile near my ribs too. At 28 weeks I think you are supposed to start counting the baby's kicks. Something like 10 an hour. Keep track of baby's kicks... And tell your doc. Congrats on 28 weeks!!
