She was kicking pretty hard the other night and DD was nearby so I said to her "hurry up come here," and put her hands on my belly. Next thing I know she is yelling, "OMG, I felt the baby kick, OMG." It was awesome!!! When this baby wants she can kick pretty hard already but she is still doing it down low. I sometimes feel it on my belly. I can find the HB on my belly already and the anatomy scan was pretty much done on my belly but kicks are low still.
Isn't that wonderful! T felt the baby kick for the first time this weekend too. Joan, like you, most of the time I feel the movement down really low, but this weekend we were sitting on the couch together, and I could feel the baby kicking really hard towards the top of my belly, so I grabbed T's hand and put it there and said "Wait for a minute, you might be able to feel the baby kick." Sure enough, about 30 seconds later Little Guy gave a huge kick right where T's hand was. T seemed genuinely amazed. So sweet! Mari, I bet your DD was really happy and excited to feel her little sister.

That's so awesome! DH hasn't felt her yet, when she's really squirming around in there, he's usually not here. He says he looks forward to feeling her though, so I try to pay attention to where she's kicking so I can grab his hand. But she always just stops.
All my movement from her is low, and I still feel a foot (or something) attack my bladder sometimes.
