I would bet babies are reacting to sugars in the food (e.g., carbs).
I'm totally feeling the "squirming" too. Bumps and nudges too, but the squirming feels like the little guy (girl?) is rolling around in there. For some reason, I can feel movement better from the outside with my hand than just from the inside, but that's only when it's kicking towards the front.
Last night as I was trying to go to sleep, baby woke up big time and started kicking or punching like crazy. I laid there for probably 30 minutes just feeling the sensations while hubby snored next to me. It was so super cool. That was definitely the most active I have felt it become, especially for such a long duration. The little guy / girl must have been tired after that! :)
ultrasound today, again had it confirmed that those cervical "twinges" are baby kicking it. I've now gotten to see TWO of my kids doing it on ultrasound while feeling it! Ro was kicking like CRAZY during the ultrasound... I just had breakfast before we went, so had a huge blood sugar rush while laying there on the chair lol
With my son 4 years ago I felt the first movement (that I could recognize for sure, anyway) at work, when I was sitting in my desk chair. It was a hard little THUMP- startled me so much that I yelped really loudly and jumped out of my seat! Not cool when you work in a high school!
With this one I thought I felt the "swimming fish" thing a couple of mornings ago for a few minutes when I was sitting real still, but I haven't felt anything since so now I'm thinking it was just gas. I'm only 15 weeks, so it's early.
When I saw the midwife last week she said that she thinks my placenta might be in the front. Which, as I think about it makes sense. Whenever I can feel the baby, it's only ever in one spot on my left. Dang it. I guess I'll find out for sure when I have my ultrasound next Monday.
I've been feeling some odd little light things a bit higher up every now and then. My uterus isn't that high so I have no idea what it is. Any thoughts? It's not something I've ever felt before. I'm guessing it's either my organs getting shifted upwards or just feeling things happening in my organs that I didn't used to be able to feel since they weren't so squished before.
I felt the first flutters at 13W and at 15W they were consistant....now at 20W this pup kicks contantly! In fact during the 20W ultrasound on the 14th the baby moved so much the technition had a hard time getting pictures! My hubby first felt the babe at 17W. My first was a big mover/kicker (and she has remained a go-go-go little girl with lots of running, jumping and climbing) and it looks like this one is set to be much the same. My ulrasound confirmed that I DO NOT have an anterior placenta, so its likely I can feel the kicks easier because of that...also, each growing babe is different and this being my second I know what the kicks feel like from quite early on. I wouldn't worry mommas, each of us is different there is no one "right" thing. :)
I'm 19 weeks now and the movement has increased a lot -- I'm actually beginning to feel movements much more often and able to see patterns! The movements have been low and never very high, but yesterday I noticed that I was feeling some little thumps near my belly button! I went in for my scan yesterday and low and behold... the baby was head down and the feet were RIGHT at my belly button! As he was going over them, the baby would retaliate by kicking!
Yeah, I can feel them from the outside, but he can't. Ro stops kicking the moment daddy tries.
It would help if he would actually come over the moment I say "Ro is kicking, you want to feel?" instead of 5 minutes later when the kicks have stopped.
