kicks above my belly button already?

At 23 weeks my baby girl is kicking above my belly button close to my ribs already. and i feel lighter hits lower in my stomach (where period cramps would be) i was told that the stronger hits are feet and weaker ones are hands? That is why im assuming her feet are near my ribs and hands are low. I didnt think she would be in this position already?

I went in for an emergancy u/s last week and the doctors said my baby is cramped already... she is measuring big for 23 weeks.... very very big for 23 weeks and they said that if i dont deliver early i will have to be induced because my baby is just long and has no room to grow already. i dont really understand what that meant but they sent me home so im guessing its ok?

I'm no doctor, but did they tell u how she is measuring big? Because they usually told me for example that my baby is measuring 27 weeks when I was actually 24 weeks... my first was always measuring 2-3 weeks ahead and she was 21 in and 7lb 13 oz which isn't so big...

The only thing they really said was that she has no room to grow already and that she was measuring big. i tried asking questions but the emergency room doctor seemed to be too busy to listen. i have an appointment with my ob on the 18 im going to request an u/s to see what they say. I know that she was measuring almost 2 weeks bigger at my 20 week scan but she still had plenty of room. she is just long.

Yeah, I would wait and see what the doctor says... they also have grow spurts so I wouldn't worry much... was ur first baby big?

They said that baby would have been very tiny. we ended up losing that one. my family has a history of having small babies that deliver atleast 2 weeks early. now with this pregnancy, she is still tiny just really long.  she was 13 -14 inches at 20 weeks and weighed 14 oz.

I have kicks above and below too, my little man is breech though:) those ER doctors are never very considerate or patient when you try to figure out what's going on. I wouldn't worry too much until I saw my doctor. Hope all goes well!
