Truth be told I think my guy is a little jealous, I caught him feeling up my belly the other day when he thought I was still asleep. I shall have to have the baby kick him awake in future
movement - Page 3
I spent a vast majority of my day laying on my stomach while simultaneously pushing (gently) on my uterus with my hands for extra squish. Nada.
I'm feeling very impatient!
Did you try it, did it work for you!?
I'm eating ice cream right now, hunched forward by my laptop. We'll see if anything happens.
I felt my others pretty early, like, around now (10 wks). I think I might have felt something 2 or so weeks ago, but it was so early. It FELT very baby. Like a pp, I'm not sure I trust it because of all this digestive stuff. Every now and then I have a really deep flipping feeling, sort of like you get on a roller coaster, though, and that feels very babylike. With dd3, I was feeling her a lot more early on than I gave myself credit. One day I realized that I truly had been feeling her a lot when I suddenly felt off balance, and then sick to my stomach. It felt like she was careening from one side to the other as hard as she could, and the whole feeling gave me vertigo. Blech. She did that a lot in the 3-4 month period. (She is still, at 3 years old, a very crazy mover. We are constantly asking her to please SIT STILL. Or, "if you want me to hold you, you will have to stop wiggling!") With dd2, I was only 9 or so weeks, and there was a large vibration on the floor where I was sitting, and it plainly startled her. I felt her jump in me. It was odd because no one knew I was even pg yet, and I was in a room full of people with this really huge secret. The next week, I was able to tell the mw right where to find her with the Doppler. Dd1 I felt at 14 weeks, and dh could feel her by 17. So, yeah, I'm antsy to fell SOMETHING. (I am trying to be patient, though, because I did feel ds until much later, but I discovered it was because he always moved at night when I was asleep. I happened to be awake one very stressful night around 22 weeks, and he was bouncing around like crazy.)
And, yes, I think I just felt something. Whoa. And again. It felt like a worm wriggling.
Yes, definitely feeling wiggles. Lots of wiggles.
Yay! I mc my first 2, before I had any children, and one of them we didn't find out until nearly 12 weeks, and it was another week or so until I lost it. So, I don't ever feel safe. When you feel them wiggle, though? That feels much better.
It's been so long since I've eaten anything--I've just been on water and miso soup for days and days and throw up everything else. So now more than ever I'm really appreciating those feelings and choosing to believe it's baby because I need the reassurance my body is taking good care of the little one even though I can't offer much help right now.
I just joined and this is my first post :)
I started feeling a distinct "bumping" sensation at 8.5 weeks. Only once a day. Always on the left side. But it kept happening everyday- so I couln't deny it! (This is my 3rd pregnancy, but never felt movement quite so early). Now that I am 11+ weeks i'm not feeling it anymore. I think it was the baby cramped behind the pubic bone before it 'popped' up above (that someone mentioned in an earlier post). I have felt a 'bumping' from the baby if I bend over while sitting down and squish it by accident.
Seperate but related thought... Anyone who is feeling early movement- have you thought it might be twins?
I can't seem to get that thought outof my mind....
@pudlenka It was all in the name of research... I was hell bent on feeling movement :) Really though, it's not that uncomfortable for me yet. I'm still falling asleep on my stomach (most nights).
i sleep on my belly (w/ strategic pillows) for almost my entire pregnancy. i'm a dedicated belly sleeper. that said, i lay on my back to feel the baby b/c the bump juts out so high and firm and then i can feel it w/out the padding squishing around it.
i know i saw a pic of the style i use on one site but cannot find it. i partially side-lie through much of the night and more as pregnancy increases, but w/ a head pillow, and leg pillow (after using my poor grumpy husband for a few pregnancies) i hike up my right knee up to my shoulder and somehow manage a belly/side sleep. it's pretty funny, but i do so love and sleep so much better on my belly!!
and YES! w/ my uterus so high and wiggly, i alternate between i'm going to miscarry b/c i had the flu and maybe twins!!!
Haha!! Silly man is right...they just don't seem to understand.
but mine isn't even interested in feeling the baby move when it's like huge rolling waves. i sometimes sneak over in the morning and lay there pressing my belly to his back in the late pregnancy stages letting the baby beat him awake. it totally freaks him out!
LOL! I did the same thing to DH - all it takes is one little baby knee in the back, and he jumps. He said he can't imagine what I go through, feeling that all the time. I said, Yup, you're right. He does show interest in feeling the baby's movements 2nd trimester...but not so much 3rd trimester when you can see it, and it looks like a little alien is rolling around in there.
Right around 11 weeks (depending on dates and on the uterus in question) the uterus gets pretty squinched behind the pubic bone. Quarters get tight and it s not unusual for moms to feel a little something for a bit at this point until the uterus pops up out of that cavity.. Then it might be a bit before you feel it again. Random stuff you pick up as a childbirth educator.
I wasn't going to reply because I thought I was crazy a couple of days ago when I felt a little flutter, but this ^ makes sense to me. The flutter was felt when I was sitting in some weird cross legged on the couch (normal for me) position and it wasn't gas. I have a lot of that; I know what it feel like. Since yesterday though, it feels like my uterus "popped" over the top. I don't expect I'll feel anything again until 18-20 weeks.
I felt movement last night!!!!!!
There was no mistaking it!! It was definitely very, very light. If I had been in the middle of something then I wouldn't have ever noticed it. I just happened to be in bed and the room was silent so I noticed! Of course, I have felt nothing more but its so exciting!!
Haha - yeah I am thinking the same thing! When I was about 8 mos with DS2, he pummeled my ribs so hard, he kicked one out of place! Had to have my chiropractor pop it back in. So I'm just enjoying feeling some movement, but NOT being pummeled too hard for a while. LOL
