FYI...Watch the bump while sleeping

Usually out of habit I sleep with my back to DH during pregnancy to protect LO and I.  Well, my little guy (the youngest other than LO) crawled in my bed in the middle of the night and at some point I must have turned over as he gave me a not so nice square kick in the lower abs (right in my uterus).  It hurt like crazy!  I'm ok but still sore.  Baby is still moving fine.  I have an ultrasound in two days so I'll be sure to mention it to my doc then.  I forgot that I used to put pillows over my bump while sleeping to protect me from this very thing.  Just wanted to let you ladies know so no one else gets whacked while down.  Trust me...it's not fun!

Good point!  I don't have that concern with my DH and bed so much as playing with my 17 month old DD on the floor.  She has a tendency to run and jump on my husband and I've caught her twice now in the process of doing it to me (in my stomach area of course).  So definitely be on the look out for those types of situations!
