Post about your little ones movement here!

I am now 13w2d and I am very obviously feeling the baby move. Last night as I laid down to go to bed I was greeted with a number of nice solid kicks and some flutters. I began to feel things I suspected could be the baby probably towards the end of 11w and now I'm certain.

 

I had to go back to my records of when I began to feel things with DD and with her I had suspicions around 14w and became certain around 16w. Definitely a bit earlier this time around! Probably only because we are more aware of what it feels like and can come to the conclusion easier.

I believe that I felt this baby at 13wks6days and again at 14weeks4days. It was abt 10 minutes of off and on "bubbles" in my lower tummy. This being my first I don't really KNOW for sure but I think it was baby smile.gif I'm hoping it becomes more consistent soon! Ill be 15 weeks tomorrow smile.gif

I was just coming to post something similar!!

 

I'm 15w1d and even though I've been feeling what I thought was probably baby for a couple of weeks (very sporadically) yesterday I felt a distinct "kick" once in the early afternoon and then several times after dinner. I've also felt the same thing a couple times this morning. It was, without a doubt, the baby! I'm so excited heartbeat.gif

I'm 12w tomorrow and have been feeling little "wiggle" movements very infrequently, but moreso as time goes on. (it's always REALLY obvious if I try to pick up a HB on top (where it is most often) and can't find it, then feel a wiggle in the lower left, and there s/he is!  That's actually how I found it initially 3 weeks ago!) I expect to start feeling a lot more around 13 weeks.

Your posts are making me feel like a first time mom. I haven't felt anything! I've laid in bed at night, silent, eyes closed and tried to zone in and feeling something... but no. I found baby right away last night, within 5 seconds, and got to listen to the heartbeat again. LOVE that! But no movements yet... I am a little fluffy with my tummy pooch so maybe that is softening anything I might feel.

I felt baby again a lot on Sunday evening. It was so amazing. For over an hour while I was showering and getting ready for bed, I kept feeling him/her bubbling all around. smile.gif we also got our Doppler last week and have done it a few times and LOVE it! It's so reassuring to hear the heartbeat and know baby is alright! It's also really helping my husband bond with the baby, being able to hear baby in the comfort of our own home smile.gif I so can't wait for actually kicks from my little one smile.gif I'm 15 weeks 1 day today.

I think I'm going crazy!! I was lying down on the couch this morning (and had been for quite a while) when I felt the strangest little feeling right in the middle, toward the top of my pelvic bone. It didn't really hurt, but sort of felt like a little flutter or slight discomfort.

I really would have claimed it to be round ligament pain, but it was right in the center and I hadn't moved in a while. I'm only 11 weeks, 5 days with my first! I can't imagine that I was ALREADY feeling baby!

Totally could have been! Now that I've felt baby quite a few times, and have a better idea of what it feels like, I remember one moment at abt 10.5 weeks when I felt something similar and at the time wondered if it could be baby but I brushed it off to gas... But now I think it very well could have been baby! And this is my 3rd pregnancy but the first pregnancy to make it past 5 weeks. smile.gif

Kara, don't feel bad! I am a fourth time mom, and I haven't felt anything unmistakeable yet, and I am almost 16 weeks! My belly is getting bigger, though, so I know baby is growing. I can feel my funds just below my navel now.

I started feeling definite movement at around 9.5w with this little one.  It was really consistent until 13w!  Lately I haven't been feeling it as much, which makes me nervous -- but I've also been CRAZY on the move for the last couple of weeks (I'm 15w tomorrow) and the movements are so subtle still that I think they were easier to feel when I was sick and sitting still a lot more.  I do feel a wiggle here or there though so I'm pretty sure beeb is alright but it's weird to  feel him/her less than I was when s/he was smaller!!

I've had a similar experience. My theory is when I don't feel as much movement, my uterus has grown a bit and baby hasn't caught up yet. I could be totally wrong, but it makes some sense.

I had a day or two where the movement was minimal but then yesterday I felt the baby a ton throughout the day. It must have been having quite the party in there. 14w today.

 

I find the odds are better of my feeling the baby if I'm sitting a little bent over and have coughed recently.

Last night I got some BIG movement on the subway and I was smiling because it was just after I posted about not feeling beeb as much.  Funny little critter.

Maybe I'll post too then.. I'm just about 15 weeks, and haven't felt any movement yet. I'm sure it was by this point in my last pregnancies that I started feeling. and  I don't have to rely on hindsight since I know what it feels like, but still, I need a squirm soon to ease my mind!

My kiddo is so far always most active after 11, when I'm winding down. Or maybe I just feel him/her then.

DH got to feel the baby tonight! <3

I'm 13w1d and felt a really weird, rapid movement in my belly while going to bed last night. Felt like stretching and vibration all at once. NEVER experienced that with the other two.
