Do you think I could feel the baby from the outside before the inside? Or Iam I making this up? Im 19w2d.
Since week 16/17 I was feeling what I thought was flutters, they felt like waves of pressure that would come and go very quickly. Then the more I read, it sounded like round ligament pain. I've had other twinches and pressures down below ( a few days ago I swore it felt like baby was nearly right in my vagina!) So for the past few nights before I go to bed, I have been putting my hands on my lower abdomen right where the doc found the heartbeat and with very gentle pressure seeing what I could feel. One day I was sure I felt something moving around in there. Tried again last night with both hands and I'm sure I felt a distinct pop from the outside! As if LO was saying "hey"! Then I never felt it again. I swear it felt like a pop- like popcorn, which is what I've read women feel but I'm sure I felt it more from the outside than from the inside. Do you think I'm just imagining these things because I want to, or is this really possible? I have been reading about other FTM feeling "kicks" and a lot of movement from 15 weeks on! I know everyone is different but I feel like feeling the just the flutters alone is taking a looooong time. (p.s. I have strong ab muscles from years of pilates, so could that make a difference?)
