I apologize if this was covered in another thread, but I'm 99% sure I'm feeling baby move and it's so lovely! I'm 14.5 weeks along now with baby number 2. With DD, I had an anterior placenta and started to feel movements at about 18 - 19 weeks with regular movements being felt a little later.
Who is feeling baby move?
This is my first so I'm having a really hard time distinguishing. I'm over 15 weeks now, so I should be able to feel the little guy (or girl) anytime now and every once in a while I could swear I feel something that might be movement, but I can't be sure.
I'm so excited to be able to feel kicks and movements properly!
I have an anterior placenta (well, anterior and off to the right a bit) this time so its tough.. I can tell from the doppler and what i'm feeling/not feeling where my placenta is, which is fun and a bit annoying, this makes 3 anterior placentas for me! . this is #4 and i'm 14w4d .. i know i've felt some kicks movements, all on the far left side but not every day and not enough to be reassuring unless i happen to feel them while i've got the doppler out so i KNOW that is for sure baby..
I am... a LOT! I wonder what this little one will be like. It is the earliest, most active baby yet. I'm 15 weeks today, and I've been feeling lots of movement for a few weeks. Very unlike me. I am looking forward to seeing the midwife for the first time next Wed to find out if I'm farther along than I've calculated. :)
This is because I doubt myself here. When I feel anything, I think "its too early to be really feeling movement so it must be gas or something"
Truth is, this is my 3rd, I feel these very quick involuntary twitches right in my belly but they are really quick and rare. I never felt it this early (13wks).
Inspired by you guys confidence, I must declare, indeed there a little one moving inside my belly!
I can't wait to feel some movement! For first timers, it can be as late as 25 weeks before movement is felt. For those who've had children, the uterine wall is thinner from being stretched with previous pregnancies. Movement can be felt as early as 12 weeks.
Supposedly, the baby is most active between 9pm and 1am due to blood sugar fluctuations. I lie in bed at night and try to really focus all of my energy and concentration on perceiving some movement. So far...nada! Not even the slightest flutter or twinge. C'mon baby...I know you're in there!
I've noticed that whenever I do something strenuous, my uterus tightens and I can feel them squirming. Yesterday, I put DH's hand on ,my belly and he could feel baby b moving for just a second. I'd been walking for about 30 minutes and started getting very tired. Typically, it happens most often after an orgasm, which is weird.
