Are you feeling movement in more than one place at a time?

Because I am. Not all the time, but a few times already. Dh has felt it also. The time that I really was positive that was what I was feeling, I was feeling my lower belly and talking to the baby, pressing in a bit to get past the mama part of the baby belly Baby kicked me and I was pleasantly surprised that I could feel it so hard on the inside and the outside (think the placenta is in the front muffling some of the movement feeling for me b/c dh can feel it from the outside while I feel hardly anything sometimes). Then, not a second later I felt the same thing higher up on my belly, like around right under the belly button line but on my right side. It was the same side as the first kicking but higher up, high enough that it shocked me that the baby was already that big (think a little above pubic bone to a little below belly button). Is the baby that long now that I could have felt a punch and then a kick? Dh and I have been joking about the baby(ies) (that's how we say it ) since then but I think I'd be showing more if I were having twins. I'm just worried about having an insanely huge baby or something, my boys were both under 7 lbs and labor/birth was painful enough with them!

So, have you felt this? Is it normal? Should I be doing extra Kegels or something?

I've only felt it in one place at a time..
but they are getting quite long now, so maybe it was a punch and kick. Hard to say

I've been feeling movement for a while now (flutters since 12 weeks!) and now this babe is all over the place with strong kicks and punches. There's still a lot of room in there so they can float/bounce around and cover a lot of ground at the moment- could have even been two different kicks as the baby moves around.

It's fun isn't it!

How far along are you? By 24 or 25 weeks I had definately felt movement in two places. I remember once in particular, I had been getting alot of kicks in the cervix and bottom then, at the same time, I got punches under the belly button. It was so neat! Of course, we didn't have an ultrasound, so for all I know it IS twins! Just kidding! I'm right on target for measurements and my intuition says it's a girl, one girl.

I've felt movement a couple times in different places and just attributed it to the baby stretching and getting a hand and a foot.

My midwife says that at around 20 weeks you go through a growth spurt and you can almost always tell if it is twins then.

I'm 16 weeks. Good to know I'm not having a Godzilla baby or something
