I've been having lots of thumping...usually when I'm sitting still. I actually seem to feel more when I'm sitting rather than laying down. It's all still quite low with only a few thumps that really feel like kicks closer up towards my belly button...maybe half way?
Movement/Quickening - Page 2
I am 17-5 and haven't felt anything, but then again this is my first and I'm not sure I would recognize anything subtle. I feel a little nervous since so many of you have felt something already... and I don't have my next appointment until 20 weeks.
I've been feeling "iffy" movement for a week or two, with a few definite knocks in there sporadically. I wondered if it meant my placenta was anterior for the first time. I had my scan this morning, and it was confirmed. I know it's not a big deal for the health of the pregnancy and the birth, but I am a little bummed. I like the movement of pregnancy, even at the end when it gets crazy. I might not have another pregnancy, so I hope I get to experience all the great parts this time around! It looked like everything else was healthy and the right size, and I refrained from finding out the sex, so a surprise it will be in August :)
Very true. It's not like you won't ever feel the baby, it just takes a wee bit longer. I had an anterior placenta last time around (and maybe this time, I haven't decided what my gut feeling is yet, but we will find out in a couple of weeks), and believe me, those kicks and jobs are *plenty* noticeable in the third trimester!
Hey ladies! I haven't been pregnant in 3 years but I *think* I may be feeling movement these last few days but it doesn't feel like the way I remember it starting with DD. With her, it felt like bubbles popping. I am almost 17 weeks and it feels like pinches? Like quick little taps? I can't describe it. Maybe its not....I guess it doesn't matter, I will feel it eventually!
