baby positions

I'm 21 weeks and I'm starting to feel my daughter more and more everyday.  But for the first time today it seemed like she was curled up  or something right by my hip bone. There was a hard ball and it hurt when I stood up straight.  Poked at it a little and laid down for a minute and she moved. I think if I would have stood up straight she would have ripped right out of my stomach. Has this happened to any of you ladies.

Yea. I'm 20 weeks and the other day while I was working the baby rolled down and was pushing out and right on my bladder. It was so uncomfortable and you could see and feel a big hard lump above my pelvis. I sat down and pushed back a little and it finally moved. But I couldn't stand up straight or anything.

That may have actually been a braxton hicks contraction, it give the sensation of the baby balling up and a tightening of your stomach, no worries that are completely normal at this point in pregnancy

Hmm I didn't think about that but its been about 2 hrs since it happened and now I feel like its stretching and where my leg connects to my torso is kinda sore. I'll live , I just worry about what other weird feelings I'm gonna have on the next 19 weeks :/
