For future reference, don't expect to buy a 34D or 34DD bra at Wal-Mart. Apparently a D cup doesn't exist under a 38 band, there.  I had *great* luck at Burlington Coat Factory, however. Two bras for $6 each. A great price for an ever-changing bra size!

That's a great deal! I would be happy joy.gif

Where I have been sick for over a week, I haven't felt the baby move as much as normal. Does this happwn to anyone else? She'll move some, but maybe 2x an hour. Then if I REALLY need to pee when I'm laying down she will. She also is VERY active when I wake. Like she will move for 5 minutes straight. I have my sugar test and RH shot Thursday so I will ask my OB about it then.

I dunno, Jenn- I'm 24 weeks and a little more and I mostly feel the baby move when I first wake up and when I lay down to watch tv at night. Maybe once in a while if i'm exceptionally still during the day, like driving or sitting at my desk, when my students are doing focused work and I can do so. 

 

I think I'd worry if there were no movement, but I don't think most peoples move all the time- just sometimes! At least, that's what I think.

When I was really sick, I didn't feel the baby move nearly as much as I did/do when I'm not sick. Everyone said baby knew I needed the break. Now that I'm not sick, I feel baby move mostly first thing when I wake up, and when I'm laying down at the end of the day, like Maine Coast Mama said. FWIW, my OB said they don't worry terribly about amount of movement until after 28 weeks, when they start kick counts, and before then, it can be more difficult to feel, especially if you are moving around/busy.

I think baby is usually less active when I am sick too, FWIW!  It's also a lot less noticeable when I am distracted or busy, but if I stop and pay attention or have some ice water, the baby gets grooving pretty quickly!  If I suddenly realise it's been a bit I will do that and lie down to check on the little guy and feel better.  :)

 

So we got through the hospital xrays to confirm no pneumonia for the 2 girls, and countless health dept calls so far regarding the probable pertussis in my 9yo and 11yo.  Yesterday everyone else had to get into a walk-in for prophylactic antibiotics.  I will likely have a call tomorrow from our most local health dept and the swabs are supposed to come back that day as well to confirm.  We're all on antibiotics and just hanging out until the coughing ones get through their first 5 days of meds.  My 4yo is doing a lot better and finally sleeping without too much coughing and the 11yo still sounds bad but is sleeping better.  My 9yo is definitely having the roughest time and I was up with her again every .5-1 hour last night so I am pretty freaking exhausted!!!  One of the early morning ones I had a nasty stumble scrambling out of bed when I heard her have another whooping attack and I could barely walk this morning on my left leg. I must have pinched a sciatic nerve because it was all in my calf and ankle and I was barely hobbling around this morning.  I pushed through it while doing housework and it is OK now thankfully!!  I am not in a position to be resting at this point so it can't keep me down lol!!  Nope not allowed to rest until everyone is on the mend...!

Babies are stubborn even in utero...

 

All night baby C has been active tonight and i was feeling him kick pretty actively.. well every time i told DP to feel him.. he would stop.. Baby B did the same thing 2 nights ago... 

 

She has yet to feel any of the babies.. though I have not felt Baby A much myself.. hes pretty low and is much less active than the other 2 :P

post #247 of 261

Oh that happens to me too all the time. This baby is quite active, but when I tell DH to feel, baby stops. I'm 23 weeks and DH has felt baby once.

post #248 of 261
Cananny - that happens all.the.time. In fact my DH will lie down and watch my belly dance all over the place and as soon as he touches my belly she stops and then the very moment he moves his hands away she starts again LOL she's ornery already... But so am I, so it wouldn't be so far fetched wink1.gif lol

This is my most "cooperative" baby in terms of movement.  With my other two, I would tell people to try to feel and then they'd have to sit there and wait a bit, and sometimes they would feel and sometimes they wouldn't.  This baby, though -- if s/he's active and someone wants to try to feel, they never have to wait more than 10 seconds before baby is right there saying hello.  I love it and am fascinated by it.  I get a majorly curious vibe from this baby, and s/he is MOST crazy active when I'm hanging with a group of people.  It's really cute and it will be fun to see how it corresponds to personality as they grow.  I found both my other kids to have in-utero characteristics that made a lot of sense given their personalities now.

I have a stubborn baby, as well! That's how he got the nickname "L.B." He'll be wiggling like crazy, then as soon as my husband tries to feel, he stops moving. When DH moves his hand, baby is active again. The other day my hubby tried to listen to baby's heartbeat and he got kicked in the jaw a couple times. That was funny :-)

 

I feel like this will be a super joyful, giggly boy. Sweet and gentle, too. Time will tell!

post #251 of 261

Why is that? Really? Can baby sense a hand? A hand that isn't moms? This baby does that too. DH & my step-daughter got to SEE the baby move a while back because he was so active and boucning around but when he's kicking or rolling and I put their hand where he's been active - he stops. MIL tried on and off for 2 hours last night to see/feel baby move. Everytime I pulled my shirt up to watch baby stopped moving. Wascally wabbit!

I feeling so much better now ! See has been moving like crazy this morning. So it was definitely where I was sick. She kicked me so hard.this morning at 6:30 that it woke me out of a very deep sleep. DD felt her.move several times yesterday and got very excited.

When I was sick I also noticed that I didn't want to but anything for baby. Now that I feel better, I any to but stuff lol.I would love to get a dresser.or storage container that will hold her stuff until she gets here.

There were 4 days right before xmas that my baby was barely moving. I gained 4lbs that week and now I know it was because he was having a huge growth spurt. Ever since then, I'm feeling way more movement, even when I'm walking/standing. I think he was just resting so he could get bigger and stronger :-) Maybe it was a combination of you being sick and baby growing? Glad you feel better now!

I'm 25w3d and I'm getting pummeled by this baby on a regular basis. That's with an anterior placenta as well. She's quite the mover!

Baby boy was kicking just as the New Year rang in. I can't think of a better way to start 2013:)

I think we've got some hiccups smile.gif is it like a small twitchy movement in the same spot every few seconds for a while... It's been happening now for almost 15 minutes... My DH said that was a good sign of her lungs developing? Is that true? (I'm 27 weeks 1day)

I had the same experience!  Gained 4lbs really quickly and have noticed way more movement and much stronger kicks!  Must be that growth spurt.  The weight gain has slowed down for now.  My husband has finally felt a really good kick for the first time a few days ago.  Up until then he was never quite sure if he really felt a kick or if he was just imagining it because I said he had kicked.  But this time there was no question.  I can even see it from the outside now at 24 weeks with anterior placenta.  It's a little frustrating when I'm trying to sleep but very comforting to know that he's doing well in there and seems to be quite strong and healthy.

That's very similar to what hiccups feel like to me! I've been feeling them for quite a while now, and I thought it was too early when they started but then I read up on it and apparently they're another one of those things that can start early on but just generally aren't felt by most women until later.

I've been waking up to kicks, too! I enjoy it. I haven't had any trouble falling back asleep yet, though. My placenta is anterior, as well. Must be some magic 26ish week growth spurt!
