Best Answer

First kicks can be as light as a butterfly's flutter, but towards the end of the pregnancy baby is tucked in very tightly. When he/or she kicks or stretch's; a foot, knee, elbow or fist may hit a tender spot or catch mom under her ribs - it doesn't feel good when this occurs but it doesn't cause mom any damage.

Those strong jabs tell you your baby is healthy, growing bigger and stronger everyday and you will be meeting each other very soon.
