Anyone else feeling their baby moving?

I SWEAR I can feel thing #2 moving. 


I"m only 13 weeks, and i'm not "slender" by any stretch of the imagination, but I felt my oldest about this time. Its not gas, if it were gas, I'd be farting non stop... and it doesn't feel like the gas i've had all pregnancy- it feels like squiggly. The gas feels like its rolling. I have no other way to describe it. :P

I felt a few flutters at 9 weeks. The other night - I pushed in my lower ab area where the midwife heard the heartbeat the night before - and I felt some really light flutters. I used one of those electric stethoscopes and I could hear some movement. No heartbeat - but what sounded like kicks and hits. This is my first baby but not my first pregnancy - so maybe I can feel it earlier - but I think I'm really in tune with my body too. I knew I was preggers 6dpo - something just felt "different." So - I think both of you ladies can feel it - you know your bodies.

I was feeling some around 11 weeks, but not lately (13 weeks tomorrow). But then again, I don't think I've been really concentrating hard on it. I will try when I go to bed tonight!

I've been feeling her pretty consistantly since about 10 weeks.  But then, with my fundal height at about 16 weeks, she'd got to be pretty huge.

I felt both my son and this baby at 11 weeks. Both times it was confirmed by the doppler, in that the baby was exactly where I felt the movement. I totally believe that women feel things at different times and that you can feel a babe early!

I'm defiantly feeling baby move (13 weeks also). Not every day, and they are so light I have to really be paying attention to feel them!

I'm pretty positive I feel the baby. We saw the baby wiggling around a lot on the ultrasound at 9 weeks- and at 10 weeks I felt like a tapping feeling, like what I remember a kick to feel like- several times though out the day in the exact same spot just barely above my pubic bone. It's always in the same spot- I don't know what else it could possibly be. It certainly doesn't feel like any digestion type feelings I've felt before. I only notice it when I am laying very still, because it's just a small tapping feeling. It seems consistent with a teeny tiny baby.

I thought I felt something last night.  It was kind of like a shifting feeling.  But it was too quick and stopped right away so I'm not sure.  I felt movement with Elsa around 17 weeks so I'm sure it will be any time now.

I felt a big punch the other day. No one believes me, as I am only 12 weeks tomorrow. But I have felt that feeling before with DD. I was doing yoga & must have been in a strange position for little one, because the punch made me LOL. It was not gas DH and Mother!!!  nono02.gif

It was baby!!!!!

I believe you all!! I knew the baby was implanted on my bottom left long before the ultrasound confirmed it - that was always where I felt a little something strange. Doppler confirmed baby is still hanging out there - probably because my AWESOME HUGE fibroid is on the right.

yup, I'm 12 weeks now and have felt my little bean squiggling around since week 10. only occasionally and usually after some juice and I am sitting still. I felt my first around the same time too.

post #13 of 121

I've figured out when I feel the most flutters.. When my bladder is full.. Because I have these big A fibroids - the baby is still way down in my pelvis - and my uterus is crushing my bladder - so baby must be on top of my bladder.. Because when my bladder is full - I feel little flutter on my left side.

Baby has been kicking me in the cervix for the last 45 min. That doesn't feel so good...

Yep, I'll be 12 weeks on Monday, and I've been feeling it for several weeks now!  I always feel movement very, very early.

One time I thought pretty strongly I felt a couple flutters in a row.  It was night time and boring and quiet.  But haven't felt anything again.  I can't wait to start feeling more and hope it starts to happen regularly soon.  I am 15 weeks.

I felt two very CLEAR flutters yesterday. The first time - I was leaning forward over the sink plucking my gray hair that pops up every 3 months. (yeah - I know... I search and eliminate the little bugger every time - with tweezers).. Anyway - as I was leaning over the sink - I felt a WOOSH. The second time was about an hour later - I was laying in a warm oatmeal bath and I felt another one right after the dog barked. I was kinda startled - so baby was too. YAY!!!!! I'll be 15 weeks Monday and I'm hoping I only have one full week before I feel more regular flutters.

post #19 of 121

Last night and there was no mistaking it!  love.gif I will be 16 weeks Monday and this is the first time I have ever felt anything like that.  Does anyone know when DH will start to feel any movement if he touches the belly?
