Movement

I just felt the baby's first kick from the outside of my stomach! So cool Smile I have felt it inside for quite some time but this is the first time I've had my hand on my belly and actually felt the little poke! YAY!! I am so excited. I've been dying for the baby to start so the kids can feel it. And DH too!

Wow...awesome! I haven't really experienced that yet. I would love for DH to be able to feel the movement too.

I am feeling distinguishable movement much later with this one than with my DS. Really, just the last week I started feeling frequent and unmistakable tickles, as that is mostly how it feels right now. Maybe they will be able to feel from the outside in the next week or two!

How cool!

I was balancing my iPad on my stomach while I lay on the couch the other day, and baby thumped it hard enough to make it move a little! Lol! I've felt a couple jabs from the outside too, but DH hasnt yet unfortunately Sad

Eee! Awesome!

I can't wait for the same. One is doing a lot of jumping jacks on my cervix and the other is ticking the top of my belly, but no jabs from the outside yet.

I am FINALLY feeling baby move!!! It really started about a week ago, but I wasn't sure, but now it's pretty obvious that it's the baby. It feels flippy floppy to me, like a fish swimming...so neat. I usually feel it in the evenings when im sitting still watching tv. Still haven't felt anything on the outside yet though...

Wow that is awesome you can feel baby from the outside already! I had an anterior placenta with Nicholas so I couldn't feel him from the outside until close to 28 weeks. This time my placenta is posterior but all I have been feeling are fishy swims and a few jabs.

Oh Jessicah that is so cool! We have the same due date I think (Dec 26) and I have been feeling little flutters but I am not sure if it's baby or not. I have an anterior placenta so that might make it a little more difficult. But sometimes I can feel a little hard spot in a specific location and when I press on it gently it feels like it moves away... not sure if that's baby but I assume yes. I can't wait to feel definite movement!!

Brynna got to feel her baby brother/sister kick today! She was so excited. She wanted to call everyone and tell them that she got to feel the baby poking Mommy. It was so cute! DH has yet to feel it and she was rubbing it in that she felt it before him. LOL

i posted that I wasn't having big movements and nothing from the outside and then the baby wanted to prove me wrong and started getting super active. My DH went camping this weekend, so I first felt the baby on the outside on Friday night and he wasn't here... but he felt him/her last night!

So cute about Brynna! Smile

Was funny when yesterday at my doctors appt the nurse asked if I had felt movement and I said yes. She said so you're feeling little flutters already? I told her no we had actually felt the baby kick on the outside and she looked at me kind of skeptically. LOL But said "oh that's great!" You can't mistake a kick on the outside for gas lady!
