Fetal Movement

I just need to gush. :)

Last night I was feeling my baby move and I put my hand down there and I felt movement from the outside! Oh, man, that was fantastic.  This past week I've been feeling more obvious movement, and I love it.


How about you ladies?

That's wonderful!  What a magical moment.  I'm definitely feeling movement, but not from the outside...yet.  Can't wait!

I've been taking a minute every night when I lay down in bed, but not yet. I'm 14 weeks today.

I've been feeling movement for a few weeks now. I started feeling little tickles about 15 weeks. Now the movements are a little bigger. This past week, I've been feeling very subtle movements from the outside. DH hasn't felt them yet. The baby stops when I tell him to feel! This is my first baby and it is super exciting to be feeling the baby!


This past week, I also found that I can hear the baby's heartbeat with my fetoscope. That is very exciting. I've been checking in almost every night...

That's so exciting! Feeling baby move is definitely one of the best things about pregnancy. I'm feeling movement from the inside but nothing on the outside yet. I can't wait to be able to share that with my son! And my husband of course, but he has BTDT last time around. smile.gif

I think I'm starting to feel wiggles, but nothing hugely definitive yet.  I have always felt them early, but I'm now convinced I was feeling gas a lot in the 1st trimesters. lol


With our loss a few years ago I thought I was feeling movement up til the day I found out she had already passed (I'm sorry to talk about sad stuff here!) at 14 weeks.  So this time I'm a little skittish and really skeptical about it.  lol.  Waiting for big rib breaking kicks, I think!

I'll be 17 weeks tomorrow, incidentally.  I've been sort of maybe feeling flutters for about 2 weeks ish. 

I do know little bit is fine and moving a lot in there, actually, bc at last apt when we heard the heartbeat s/he was moving a TON.  So heard it, not really felt it.

lulubikes, since you mentioned the fetoscope I've been trying mine to no avail.  All this waiting! Ugh. winky.gif

16 weeks and I'm at the disconcerting stage where sometimes there is lots of very noticeable movement and other days there is nothing I can be sure of.  I know from experience that it's positional (i.e., if baby is facing 'out' I can feel a lot more kicks and stretches than if baby is facing my back).  But it does kind of worry me on the days when I only get little twinges 2 or 3 times a day.

Thats awesome!!!! I have been feeling some movement since about 14 weeks. Im 16 weeks now and feel little thumps when I am sitting still and resting. I cant wait to feel kicks and feel it from the outside!!

I really did not expect to feel anything this early, but I started feeling little movements over the past few days, and last night they got a little stronger. Babe has been wiggling around consistently for a good two hours this evening!

I started feeling movements at 14 weeks and now I feel kicks and baby turning around or moving to the other side of my stomach, especially when I am quiet and sitting/lying down.  I had my dh put his hand on my belly and I didn't tell him when the baby kicked.  Each time baby kicked or moved, he felt it!
