I would slowly increase pushing on your belly but not to much. Or shine a light on your belly. Congratulations!

I was the same way.. and everyone told me to not rush it because when it comes your going to wish she slows down. And now it seems like everything I eat or drink gets her going... she has kept me up so many hours. Lol I love it but sometimes I just wish she would sleep with me.
