Can u actually feel ur baby by touching ur stomach?

So like I'm laying down and I know when my baby is moving Cus my stomach shakes and I feel the kicks but right now I was laying down and decided to touch my stomach an press around it not to hard and I felt something  Small but hard on the top of my stomach to the size of my index finger but just the tip? Is that normal? Is it The baby or something else? Btw im 29weeks and I'm a FTM so I'm always couriouse and worry when I don't know what's going on...

I rub my right side and I can feel his foot. I know it's his foot because of the scans... But I can feel the small round lump that's his heel/whole foot. Other than that I have only felt what I thought was his bum sticking out when he stretched. Lol

I am currently 37 weeks 2 days and my stomach stays hard all around my daughters body. if you were to touch my stomach you would feel her completely. It kind of scares me because it makes me thing she doesnt have much fluid. i am an ftm also but my stomach has been like this ever since i started to show. i have felt my daughter since 16 weeks.

Oh wow , we'll this is the first time I actually feel a part of her body and it freaked me out not knowing what that Lil lump was! And idk if i was hurting her by touching and pressing on it!.. Well I'm not pressing it hard at all but I couldn't help to keep on touching it Becuase I wasn't sure what that lump was thinking about it makes me shiver like wow I have a baby in me and it's so so real but I'm happy and excited at the same time!

My son was breech and would stretch and shove his head under my ribs. I use to push hard on it to move him and he came out fine. It use to calm him when I would rub his head in the same fashion after he was born. So they can feel you touch them and they like it.
