Getting Antsy

Now that I hit 16 weeks, I am starting to pay close attention to every twinge I get. I feel some various things going on down there lol. But none of em seem like baby kicks. I will get little jabs on either side, which I think is probably stretching jabs still. And I don't really know how to describe the other sensations. I may be imagining them. They don't feel like kicks or flutters exactly. I keep reading descriptions of quickening that talk about it feeling like popcorn popping in your tummy. What is that supposed to feel like?? I know what it SOUNDS like lol. I'm so impatient, cause I can feel the firmness in there, especially when I bend over, but it's not popping out yet.

Guy is still whining about sex. Seriously, is it really that hard to control your sexual desires for a few months? He takes care of himself all the time but he still whines that it's hard to be around me when I don't want to do it. Sometimes it makes me want to throttle him. I suppose a better girl would at least attempt to give him a handjob or something but frankly, I'm just tired and don't want to look at his junk at all right now lol.

I dont feel anything yet and tis is #3!! i was feeling lots of movement with my boys by now, hard enough to wake me in my sleep! Im guessing since im about 20lbs heavier this time its just very muffled, lol.

it will come soon!!!

as for the man and his needs, I totally feel for you. we go through spans of time as well, but he knows not to complain, lol. I have been alseep each night by 8pm and he is out fishing at midnight and 3am, so he is just as exhausted lately.

Lucky. Mine does not know not to complain because when his ex was pregnant with their kids, she never lost her libido.

I have never felt like popcorn in my tummy! For me, it's more like pushing, sometimes jabbing, and poking Smile Hope you feel more soon!

Not sure about the popcorn thing either. Early movement is different for everyone, I mean it has even been different for me with different pregnancies. I guess if I had to describe the first few weeks of movement for me I'd say it felt more like swipes :p. It's probably still too early for your baby to be big/strong enough for you to feel good hard kicks. Don't struggle to describe it, it's not in your imagination. Enjoy finally feeling your LO! You've been waiting for movement for so long! Congrats! :woohoo:
