At almost 40 weeks pregnant an Australian Paralympian champion has uploaded an incredible video of her energetic bub pushing on the inside of her stomach.

The very pregnant belly of Kelly Cartwright, 26, can be seen on the video with the little bub inside moving and pushing limbs outwards from within her stomach with remarkable force.

‘It’s [sic] used to be round,’ wrote Kelly in the caption, before adding: ‘that’s his bum just poking out all day long! #39.5weeks #comeonlittleman.’

Bemused fans posted many comments in response to the video, with one writing: ‘Mum!!!! Mum?!? Mum????? Let me out!!’

‘Haha he is probably going to wiggle his way out’, responded Kelly in a later comment as she joked that she ‘can see him never staying still’ in future.

  • Lol, all my kids did this Alien dance in the belly.


  • I miss these days, feeling bub pushing and wriggling and rolling. I loved this more than the little butterfly flutters when they were smaller because I could share it with my husband and older siblings.


  • Oh look at her round bump…. cluck cluck!


  • Video has been removed – but she has a wonderful baby bump!


  • Bummer, the video as been removed. What an awesome belly though! Even after having my own baby and watching my belly move, these videos still creep me out slightly haha its so amazing!


  • Wow, great videos. I am going through the same thing at the moment; it is amazing how much they can move!


  • yeah i remember seeing arms or legs glide around my belly! i used to get real uncomfortable when the bub felt like they were doing the “Cat stretch” and pushing on my belly really hard! they must have just been rolling around though lol


  • Wishing her all the best. All four of my kids were very active in my belly so I know exactly what’s she’s feeling.


  • Oh! This is so beautiful to watch!! :-)


  • what a cool video! – wishing her all the best with the new bub :)


  • That is amazing. I wish her all the best


  • That really is one energetic baby. He will be fun when born!
