fluttering/vibration sensation? - Page 9

post #161 of 206

you're all right. it is REALLY weird (and cool). when i found out i was pregnant with twins, i had all these questions about whether i would feel them distinctly (or would it just feel like one really big, really active baby?), you know how a pregnant lady develops an understanding/awareness of her baby as it grows and those movements and sleep./wake patterns seem familiar once they are born? would i know them as distinct entities? so i guess i have my answer now. if they gang up at the same time, it is very obvious that there are two.

Same here though I'm feeling ALOT more "something". Are you due 9/29 too? Lol we both had a good New Years Eve, perhaps? That's when I conceived.

I could have sworn I felt more with DD at this point.

i'm 20.5 weeks and still haven't felt anything clear (aside from a couple small thumps several weeks) - are there any of you this far along that haven't felt anything??  i definitely tend to be a worrier and know that there's no guarantee that every babe makes it through to term...some reassurance would be great!

Jess- 20w 2d still nothing here. Got my scan Friday, hope that will reassure me.
post #165 of 206

thanks serena - i just read that it can take until 25 weeks for 1st time moms to feel much so that helps.  hope your scan goes well and makes you feel more confident!

Reposted from other thread:

 

Well, I'm 21 weeks, 2 days with my first, and I THINK I may have finally felt movement yesterday.  I'm not sure, as everyone has been telling me it'll feel like a flutter or a butterfly, but this was more like a kick!  I was laying down, when all of a sudden I felt a jab below my belly button.  I'm still not sure it wasn't gas though, especially because it felt different than I thought.  I've been pretty impatient as I thought I'd have felt something weeks ago.  Last week at the midwife appt she heard movement on the doppler, but still!  My midwife said for a first pregnancy it can be anywhere between 18-24 weeks.

The first movement I felt with my first pregnancy was a jab. Not a flutter or tickle. I'd think at 21 weeks you'd feel jabs. I'm betting it was baby smile.gif

It was definitely a jab for me too! I didn't feel the more fluttery sensations until I was used to the jabbing. Now I get jabbing at both ends of my tummy at once which is a bit weird feeling!

I get the occasional pokes.  No swishes, flips, flutters, or anything subtle.  Just occasional distinctive pokes.  I'm 17weeks

So it's been confirmed in my mind that the flutters I've been feeling incessantly, especially in the early afternoon are my sneaky ninja baby who doesn't feel like sitting still.

I had a quick appointment this afternoon at the clinic and we figured it would be good to see if we could find the baby with the doppler nut baby was having none of this. She'd aaaaaaalmost get a lock on the heartbeat and then it would disappear so she would find it again, usually on the opposite side of the uterus but it would again disappear as quickly as she found it. We eventually broke out the tiny ultrasound machine in the office just to catch this baby and sure enough! SO SQUIRMY! Baby was shuffling about and making "treading water" like motions and just generally having a great time. It made my whole day.

Hehe! This is awesome. I think my bean might have to be in this "ninja" category too! Though I haven't seen or heard anything for over a month since I lost my insurance.

I'm 20 weeks, and I'm pretty sure I've felt the baby move. However, I would not say that it is obvious. The similarity to gas makes me a bit uncertain. I only felt a "thump thump" once.

 

Last night, I got a new weird feeling though. I felt a vibration that lasted for about a minute. This happened twice. I say vibration as it was much faster than a flutter. I'm not sure what that was, but a quick google search indicates that I am not alone.

I get the vibrations coati. They scared me with my first pregnancy.
post #174 of 206

This baby is either much more active than he has been, or he's grown so I can feel him more often. Either way the flutters have changed into more pronounced kicks/punches but I still can't feel them from the outside so DH is still clueless.

post #175 of 206
I hear you, dakipode: I do not remember DD being this active all the time! Maybe I'm just forgetful.
post #176 of 206
Cmu my baby is crazy active too. I don't remember my dd being this active either. I can sit and watch my belly and she is just everywhere. Dh has been able to feel her for awhile, but now all he has to do is watch my belly for a minute to see some movement. Exciting the movements have evolved into kicks/punches now Dakipode!
post #177 of 206

Glad my baby is not the only crazy active one. I posted in another thread about how the midwife couldn't find the heartbeat with a doppler because the baby just would not stay still. We ended up doing a brief ultrasound just so she could chase them down and see. :)
The movements which are still fluttery and not at all "kicky" still can't be felt from the outside yet BUT! Yesterday when in the middle of H-Mart (Korean grocery store here) I suddenly realized I could FIND the baby because one side of my belly was squishy and the top right side was super-firm. With some poking about I realized I was actually feeling a "lump" in that corner. I got my husband to confirm (still in the grocery store) that yep... there they were! All huddled up in the top right of my uterus. Now that I realize I can do this, the poor child is being constantly poked by me to see if I can find them again.

Eric was finally able to feel her moving last night, so were my two older girls! smile.gif The younger two haven't yet, because its not quite distinct enough for them to pick up on.
post #179 of 206
DH got to feel her tonight! 20w6d!!! I'm pretty sure that's how far along I was with my first kiddo, too. Interesting.
post #180 of 206
Yay that's awesome! I bet he was so happy! My DH is trying to put his hand on my belly every time I say the baby is moving (or I think he is?) and then nothing.

Coati, dakipode: Can you explain these vibrations? I am getting such weird feelings from this kid...

Today I *know* I felt a KICK. Just once and not again. I was hoping by now there'd be some more action. I'm not very patient.

Serena-- haven't seen you in here... Have you felt anything yet?
