Re: July Fireflies Weekly Chat December 27th - January 3rd

I can't believe it! I felt the baby kick this morning!!!!!!!!

I had no idea I would feel baby kicks this early. With DD I didn't feel the first movements until 15 weeks 1 day and nothing again until 19 weeks 3 days. But I'm 11 weeks 5 days today, and I am quite sure I felt several kicks!

I was lying on my back, and my bladder was full, full, full because DD had slept through the night (first time in quite a while), and I miraculously hadn't gotten up myself during the night. Both the lying on the back thing and the bladder thing can increase the chances of feeling the baby early, along with this being my second pregnancy. I looked it up on Google, and a lot of other moms have felt their subsequent babies this early--or even earlier. So, yeah, I know for sure there is a baby in there now!

I stayed lying in bed for a while, hoping to feel more baby kicks, and I did.

Anyone else???

Re: July Fireflies Weekly Chat December 27th - January 3rd

yay! 12 weeks! just two more weeks until second trimester. Can't wait for that, too!!

I get my sonoline b doppler today. my cheapo started freakin' me out, because i never heard anything other than my own heartbeat. but it does say start at 3rd trimester so i'm really excited to hear my LO... should be here in a couple hours!

otherwise, doin' good here. MS is completely gone, starting to get more energy. A cold hit our house pretty bad, we all have stuffy noses and congestion, but its manageable.

Re: July Fireflies Weekly Chat December 27th - January 3rd

I have been feeling tiny little flutters but I really don't think I could be feeling the baby already. I'm only 10 weeks. Although in the morning when I wake up and have a full bladder it feels more like I have a cantaloupe in there than a grapefruit. So maybe I'm further along than I thought? Or maybe there is more than one.
I can't wait to to feel the baby for real. I love that so much and its so reassuring.

I have started feeling movement too. Thought I was crazy but then again this isnt my first rodeo and I know exactly what to expect. Hopefully I will go in for an u/s in the next week or 2, just waiting for my midwife to give me the info so I can make an appt.

Aw! I wish I could feel my LO move! This is my first though so i know it's not likely for me until way later!

@ Beth, how exciting! Hope it arrives soon so you can hear the baby! I love my sonoline doppler!

I thought maybe I felt baby move around 11.5 weeks, but it was too consistent and strong for a few days in a row so I'm thinking it was some little muscle twitching or something. I've thought I've felt baby a few times since, but I'm still not convinced. My whole digestive system hasn't been super settled lately, so I'm just not sure. You'd think I would know if I was feeling baby or not with #4! In other news, I feel huge and I don't like wearing any of my clothes anymore...T-shirt it is AGAIN!
