I'm 24 weeks pregnant and keep wondering if maybe I'm carrying twins, since I'm being kicked so much and all over and it hurts! I also have 8 and 11 year olds and don't recall being kicked so painfully before.

Is this happening to anyone else?

This one seems to be much stronger than ds was - but I'm not sure if that's because it was so long ago that I don't remember (ds is 7)!

There is only one baby in there, but his kicks/punches can take my breath away sometimes they are so strong and all over the place. I love it.

Yes, I have a kicker. I think she is doing jumping-jacks because it seems like I can feel her kicks in four different places at the same time!

This one is kicking way more vigorously than her sister did but I've had enough ultrasounds at this point that I'd be really surprised if there turned out to be more than one in there.

I have an anterior placenta this time ans STILL this lil one moves a lot more often and a lot more forcefully than the others did. The other day he had pushed out so I could palpate him fairly easily. And he was everywhere! He didn't kick or anything but there were parts of him all across my belly. If it's not twins- he's HUGE!

I was thinking twins too but there's only one in there. MW was pretty confident last week so I guess she's/he's just a kicker! Much more busy than DS. Really loves kicking my belly button too. I'm enjoying it since this babe is the last.

My is mover and there's definitely only one! They still have enough room at this point to flip around a lot, so it's normal to feel it "all over."

I'm 26.5 weeks, and my girl is kicking so strongly that she makes a book balanced on my belly bounce up. I feel her all over and all day and night. It makes me smile every time!

I'm a professor and a domestic goddess married to my ideal mate. We are living in bliss with our new baby girl, Rowan Graham, born October 8, 2010.

This one is kicking so much more than my first. Right now there's a set of feet a few inches under my ribs just pounding away and a set of hands punching on the other side.

yup right now i keep jumping because it feels like DD is riding an imaginary bike in there pedalling her feet. i totally smile whenever i see her moving about too, last night she was making lumps stick out - must've been feet - poking out five or six inches above my belly button, it looks like she is trying to claw out - yet i too have an anterior placenta so surely that shouldnt happen lmao

This little one kicks the crap outta me all day, every day, all over, sometimes on opposite sides of the belly at the same time, sometimes for hours on end..
