Your baby probably is! And yes, while this can feel strange, it is perfectly normal.
Depending on your baby’s position in the uterus, he or she may indeed be playing soccer with your bladder or cervix. While this may cause a strange sensation (peeing much, anyone?), it’s totally normal. However, if you are feeling increased pressure or contractions and are worried this might be preterm labor, of course check in with your doctor or midwife. Chances are all is well, but it’s always best to call if you are concerned.
