I don't even think that's possible...



She's probably stretching out and putting pressure on your ribs.

Your lo is running out of space at that point, so no, the baby is not stuck....the last trimester sucks a big one, but you'll make out through. We all do. I had bruised ribs for the last month of my pregnancy.

My DD liked to hang out on my left side, so my belly always looked very lopsided. Then it felt like she was climbing up my ribs with her feet. Fun stuff. And it only gets more uncomfortable the further you get. :)

Babies just find a comfy position and stick with it toward the end.

It's probably nothing and baby just found a comfortable position, but it is possible for a baby to get "stuck". I know a girl whose baby got her foot stuck in-between the ribs and when she went into labor her ankle got dislocated as she was coming out. Poor baby had to wear a cast on her foot for the first few months of her life so it is potentially possible.

Just probably the babys comfy spot. DS always had his feet in my right ribs and if I tried to get him to move he would kick me good and hard and knock the wind outta me. That was his spot lol. He ended up bruising my ribs and pulling the muscles. Pain sucked but had no choice. Couldnt control him lol.

She's not stick..she's just stretching and maybe that's the place she feels more comfortable.my baby girl likes to stay on my left side and she kicks my ribs and puts a lot of pressure on them.try stretching the opposite way she's in it helps the discomfort a little

Oh wow that's crazy. But to the original post, I'm sure if you tell your doctor and they feel its a possibility maybe they can do an ultrasound and just check? I've Never heard of that actually happening. Considering your uterus would have to stretch and get stuck in there too, and I'm pretty sure the uterus is a slimy thing and not something easily wedged.
