  • Oh, the joys of being pregnant: feeling your baby kick even if it kind of hurts. Anne Curtis marvels at seeing her baby girl’s foot as she kicks but also reveals that the little lady may be kicking too hard.

    “It’s kinda crazy, weird, and amazing how I now can feel and actually SEE her little leg, knee, or foot protruding out of my tummy,” the actress wrote on her Instagram Stories last Friday, January 17, 2020.

    “And then she squirms a but and it disappears,” Anne said of the quick revealing moment that lets her feel and see her baby inside her.

    In the post-script, the preggo mom added, “It’s getting harder to breathe though, I feel like she’s kicking my ribs.” All typical in a day of a mom who is nearing her due date.

    “Can’t wait to meet her,” Anne expressed her excitement as she waits around a month or so for her due date. She and husband Erwan Heussaff are expecting the arrival of their baby girl, their first, in March. Last week, Anne Curtis got a bit emotional reading Dr. Seuss’s book meant to be read to babies in the womb.

    Anne announced on Twitter back in November 2019 that she startedfeeling her baby kick. Babies in the womb start moving as early as Week 7 of the pregnancy, but expectant moms usually feel them only beginning at Week 16.

    It’s also normal to see a foot or a hand on your tummy as the baby moves. As the baby grows, the baby becomes more snug in the uterus that the pregnant mom feels his or her slightest movements — yes, it can even feel like an actual punch in the gut (or ribs, as in Anne’s case) or near the pelvic area.

    Preggo moms are advised to monitor their baby’s movement. Ideally, the baby registers at least 10 kicks within an hour or when your little one is most active. Not feeling the baby move at a considerable period can be a cause for concern, so alert your doctor and hed to the hospital right away.
