Mutlip Mama's: when are you expectin to feel movement?

post #1 of 33
Thread Starter 

I think with baby #1 I felt at 14 weeks and baby #2 at 15 weeks. When are you expecting to feel first movements this time?

post #2 of 33

I felt #1 @ 16 weeks

#2 @ 13 weeks

So I figure somewhere between those this time around. I figure sometime in June. smile.gif

Who knows.  I didn't even realise I was pregnant with #3 until I was 5 months

I never felt movement and only one weird early morning uterine contraction
(*that I chalked up to a full bladder as it went away after I peed)

I only had 2 post partum periods and they weren't regularly spaced...

I thought to test when it had been a while...lol....

I wonder if his placenta was forward.....Its odd too as with #1, #2, #4, #5 I knew either after conception or before I was late...

But #3...the forever middle child....got a 3 month pregnancy...I gave birth a month early after a car accident.

Thank god I wasn't into drinking etc during that pregnancy!

I felt movement at 18 weeks with my first, but didn't feel anything til 23 weeks with my second, due to an anterior placenta. I hope I feel something before then this time!

Wow! Hopefully everything turned out alright after that accident. Scary.

yeah it was what made me go with a mw for birth 4 and hopefully 5.

He was born cord around the neck, cord first, but in the caul...so he only strangled on delivery.

If he had had a doctor assisted birth they would have broken my water...and it could have been much worse...much.

Oh man! I am very grateful to have extremly hands off OB's. They kind let me do my own thing as much as possible.

So glad your birth went well despite the cord! 

 

About 14 weeks for me.  Maybe earlier, depending on how gassy am I - that tends to confuse things. ;)

I think I felt J around 14 or 15 weeks.

My third was born in the caul and the cord was also wrapped 2x around his neck.  His cord was fairly tight....the mw believes that was the reason why he was born posterior (assuming rotating would have tightened it up so he didn't rotate).  She also felt is was a huge blessing that he was born in the caul and had all that extra cushioning during birth as he had great heart tones throughout.  If I'd been at a hospital it's scary to think how his birth could have been messed up.  

 

I seem to remember feeling consistent movement starting around 18 weeks.  There might have been little things before.

I have a rather active digestive system, so I'm not expecting to feel any definite baby movements until 16-18 weeks.
post #13 of 33

I know this is crazy, but i swear I feel quickening now, at 10 weeks. I didn't feel my DD until 20ish weeks because of an anterior placenta. I am wondering about twins....10 weeks is still way too early to feel twins, right?! 

post #14 of 33
Someone in my last DDC swore she could feel baby at 9 or 10 weeks. It was in one specific spot and when she went for a u/s that's precisely where the baby was. You never know. smile.gif

I don't think it's too early, twins or not, especially if you are thin and it's not your first one. I swore I felt quickening movements at about 10 weeks with my last child, and the movements kept getting stronger and followed a pattern throughout each day. It was definately not gas!

 

With this pregnancy, I expect to feel something around the end of the 1st trimester. With my 1st I felt movement around 14 weeks, my 2nd around 12 weeks, and my 3rd around 10 weeks... so I'm really hoping for any minute! lol

I know a lot of it is gas, but I have felt I was feeling baby movement quite early, like 10 weeks or so, before.  The baby is so small before the end of the first trimester that it's just hard to imagine I'm actually feeling it.  But my mother, who does various kinds of body work, points out that our bodies can refer sensation from one location to another, so a very small movement in the womb might be 'felt' as a larger movement in the abdomen.  Interesting idea, anyway!

post #17 of 33

Let's see...I didn't feel my first until 21 weeks or so.  I remember a girlfriend asking if I felt like I had gas bubbles and I said yes and she said, "that's the baby moving silly!"  I knew what to expect the second time around and felt her about 14 weeks or so, like a very gentle tickle from the inside.  I hope to feel this one around the same time.

I was 18 weeks and I only felt DS when I was laying down!

yes, I am actually a licensed massage therapist and as such I literally 'feel' for a living ; ) I do know that I am feeling this baby move at this point and it is incredible how early and prominent it is. I can literally feel where this babe is in my womb, it is uncanny. I have always been quite in tune with my body, but this is really spectacular to me. 

 

post #20 of 33

I have felt the baby move twice in the past couple days, and i'm 10 weeks!  A little flutter once at night and a harder sensation yesterday afternoon.  I felt my first at 14 weeks, but I didn't believe that's what I was feeling till it got more consistent.  With my second I had an anterior placenta and didn't feel him move till after 20 weeks!  I was freaking out.
