Are you feeling the baby move now? I have felt random flutters before now - not daily. But this morning I was feeling distinct kicks.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

I'm due the 27th and have definately been feeling some good kicks. I seem to feel things early, my skinny frame can't seem to keep the babe hidden.<br>
congrats on the fun of some real kicks! Have the bigger kids felt them?

I'm due the 28th and have felt some flutters and jabs - I think. It's my first so I don't really know what it's supposed to feel like. I only feel one or two flutters a day if I'm lucky. Sometimes several days will pass without feeling anything. I'm not worried though. I'm hoping to see a lot of movement on the u/s tomorrow morning!

I'm due the 29th and had been feeling something, but had no idea what it was. Gas? Ligament pain? Upset stomach?<br><br>
Well, today I drank a cup of coffee on an empty stomach and baby went dancin'! Elbow to the right, kick to the left. That was definitely a baby moving around in there!! lol. Of course, I got my unborn child high on caffeine to do it, but now I know for sure s/he's a kickin!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I just now saw your signature. Are you really a homesteader? How is that working for you, how did you get started, how self sufficient are you? Sorry for all the questions, but that's my dream life and I so incredibly interested in hearing others experiences!

Hi I am due the 27th and have noticed little "squiggles" (for lack of a better word) for the last 2 weeks. They are starting to get more pronounced. But still not regular movements.

Due on the 30th and feeling random movement. Sometimes I don't feel anything for more than a day. I can't wait for the first real kicks, it is soooo amazing! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/luxlove.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="throb">

Its great isn't it?<br><br>
I first felt distinct baby movements 1.5 weeks ago then nothing. Its only been this week that I have started to feel movements every couple of days.<br><br>
It always puts my heart at ease ... silly I know <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">

I'm due the 29th and have been feeling kicks off and on for a few weeks. Movement daily since about 16 weeks. Still only a few times a day though and still low!

I've been feeling movement for about a week now. I love it. It makes me feel so close to my baby.

I'm feeling baby right now - cool!<br><br>
I am a budding homesteader. I put that in my siggy to remind myself to keep at it. I have a vegetable garden, a herb garden, and I'm starting a herd of milk goats - I have one milking right now. I also sew, crochet, knit and make my own soap. I'm not very self sufficient at all - it's all very modest, but it's so much more than I did last year! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/loveeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Loveeyes">: I think that one thing that sets people back with homesteading is they see it as all of nothing. Most people can't just up and change everything about their lives all at once. I see homesteading and self sufficiency as something I am working to *grow* in. Each year I try to work on a skill - and it looks like gardening is a skill that's going to take several years! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> I've been battling everything from snail infestations to fire ants. And the growing season where I live in deep south Texas is odd. Some things grow better in the winter, but then if you get a freeze... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">: I plan to homeschool, and I really want my kids to grow up understanding how to do things themselves. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
