Anyone else feeling their baby moving? - Page 2

post #21 of 121

Same with me... I haven't felt anything yet, but I'm still at 14.5 weeks and it's my first.  I feel pretty in tune with things, but I'm not expecting to feel anything for a few more weeks.  I thought I felt something last week, but it was definitely gas.  Sheepish.gif

I'm 14.5 weeks now and have been having tons of flutters this week. But I definitely know what I'm feeling now, as opposed to my first pregnancy!

I'm glad I'm not the only one who's not feeling anything.  Aside from that first bit I posted where I wasn't sure, I really haven't noticed anything.  Sometimes I'll think it's *about* to happen and I'll stop and wait but it's always my pulse or some muscle twitching.  Bummer.

post #24 of 121

Until today I was writing off what I was feeling as 'gas' or muscle spasms... but I'm pretty sure I'm feeling movement, flutters mostly. I'm almost 15 weeks.

Don't give up hope, first time moms! What you will most likely find is that when you do feel definitive movement, you'll realize that you've felt it for some time beforehand, but weren't able to confirm it. Also, I have heard of more than one case of not getting the "a-ha!" moment about baby movement until the anatomy scan when you can see the baby moving and correlate it to what you're feeling!

yeah my first pregnancy I wasnt sure I felt movement till probably 18-20w... :) now I realize a lot what I thought was gas was kicks :)

post #27 of 121

It's definitely not movement.  When I say muscle twitch, it's like in my leg or my butt.  Nowhere near my uterus, ROTFLMAO.gif And it doesn't happen a lot anyway.  It's like I'm getting zero feedback in that region.

 

I felt it with Elsa around 17 weeks, which I guess is supposed to be early for a first timer.

With my first I was around 22 wks, second 18 weeks, third around 10 weeks (crazy early but I was sure!), fourth around 16-18 weeks and fifth and sixth around 14-16 weeks. It's all variable and it's very unusual to feel consistent movement prior to14ish weeks. :)

*sigh* ....trying to be as patient as I can!  Our next ultrasound appointment was scheduled for us at 20wks (not at 18wks as promised, bummer).  I'm sure that we'll feel movement by then (especially if I can correlate any feelings w/movement visible during the scan).  Not happy with waiting the extra 2 weeks though......I might just drive the 3 hrs to see a U.S. doctor again (in Grand Forks, ND) so I can get the scan at 18wks!

Baby has found my cervix again...
post #31 of 121

Yeah, I've been having lots of cervical twinges too. I chalk it up to hormonal changes, though, because my baby's barely the size of a lemon, if that, so I don't think he or she can really be kicking at my cervix enough yet to make it feel like that!

I'm 15 weeks 2 days and for the last 2 weeks, or so, it has been extremely uncomfortable when baby finds my cervix. Though I also think that has to do with my extremely sensitive uterus.

I felt three or four sharp pangs in my pelvic area (center, right between the pelvic bones, but toward the front where I assume the uterus is right now).  Is that cervical twinge?  It's kind of funny, because I have no idea what any of this stuff feels like.  The pains were sharp enough that I would have been worried had there been more than three or four.  It'll be interesting when Braxton-Hicks and all that stuff starts, because I am completely clueless about what is going on down there.

post #34 of 121

Yeah, cervical twinges for me are pretty sharp, and that sounds like about the right region. BH are interesting, because they don't or don't usually hurt, but you realize sort of out of nowhere that your entire abdomen is suddenly rock hard. It's weird!

I haven't noticed any bh yet this pregnancy.

I did have a good sold 45 min on the 3rd where baby was punching/kicking the cervix. By thetime he/she stopped I was wondering if I might end up with spotting due to breaking capillaries in the cervix. Thankfully I haven't had that happen again since.

I'm pretty sure that the only movement I've been feeling is gas.  Uh, if anything, I've become a lot more aware of my "gas" this pregnancy than anything else.  Was I this gassy before and just unaware of it? lol.  I think I might have felt an actual kick once or twice but I guess, as a first-timer, I can't trust my judgment just yet.  But I'm not yet 13w along and I'm really not expecting much for awhile.  I guess I'm lucky that I'm reasonably patient.

post #37 of 121

I feel the baby move and have for a few weeks :)  the past few days the movement has really picked up and I love it.  Its very reassuring to feel the little life inside you.  Remind me of this as we hit 35 weeks and are all ready to be done with this belly.gif

post #38 of 121

I'm right at 16 weeks, and I've been feeling movement on and off since just before 14 weeks. This is #3. Still not every day yet, though.

post #39 of 121

I'm still waiting..............!!!!  16 wks tomorrow and still searching, wondering, every day.......... *sigh*

post #40 of 121

I finally had some movement last night at work.  It was like twitching inside my belly that went on for quite awhile.
