Plus size mamas

Have you gals felt movement yet?  I thought I felt her a couple weeks ago, but haven't since. How's everyone else?

Re: Plus size mamas

  • I've been feeling consistent movement since Christmas Day, but nothing on the outside yet. Damn belly. I really don't think our size has anything to do with when we feel them, since we're feeling them from the inside of our uterus. Don't fret, soon you will feel her all the time!

    We lost our first (EDD 07/23/12) after finding out at 12 weeks there was no longer a heartbeat. Our rainbow was born 05/22/13 and was worth all we went through.

    Good point. I'm pretty anxious to feel something on the outside so DH can as well.

  • I'm not sure....everyone keeps describing it as flutters or bubbles. I have not felt those. but a couple days ago I had a Reeses pieces sundae from Friendlys and for a few minutes after  I was feeling pings in  the same area as the baby... wasn't painful but it didn't feel like bubbles either.  Im not sure if that was the baby or not.  If it was though I think she was on a sugar high lol

  • I thought a week or two i felt something too but nothing again and im a little surprised as its my 3rd baby. maybe it has to do with her being a girl and my other two boys which are still very active till this day. This one also never moved around a whole lot with the 2 ultrasounds ive had so im guessing she has my laid back personality... so im hoping.
  • I think so, but not 100 percent sure. I've read that it's a myth that we will feel the movements from the inside later than skinnier girls, though, because it's not like there is a layer of fat inside of our uterus that would prevent us from feeling the baby. Movement from the outside is a different story, though, since there is fat in the way in that case.
  • I've been feeling movement for a couple weeks now. I'll feel pretty strong kicks every once in awhile, but nothing my husband can feel yet.

     

  • Mostly same as PPs. I feel little movements from the inside and I felt one strong kick that I was pretty sure hubby could feel, but he was asleep at the time. I was laying on my back at the time and hubby had his arm over my belly and I think baby was trying to kick him off! :) Other than that, I do think it will be a little longer until you can feel from the outside just because of the extra padding. Just as a guess as I'm a FTM.

  • I first felt something around 19.5 weeks, it felt like a nerve twitching and sometimes like that feeling when your stomach "drops" at the top of the roller coaster.  It's really low, at my pubic bone.  At about 21.5 weeks, I was feeling some good kicks while laying on my back (so the fat kind of rolls to the side, LOL) and put DH's hand on my belly and he was able to feel it.  It's been a week since then and I haven't felt again from the outside, but have from the inside, usually after eating.

  • I've been feeling pretty consistent movement on the inside for a while now but over the last couple of days i've been able to see and feel kicks on the outside if I"m on my back or on my side!

  • I'm 21 weeks and I've felt flutters but when I sit for a few minutes I feel more rolls and tumbles in my belly. I felt a couple of big roll arounds the last couple of days. Don't worry mama being plus size isn't a disadvantage for us... Because once our babies get stronger... We will feel them xoxoxo
  • I've been feeling pretty consistent movement for about a week now.  I first noticed it last weekend when I was just relaxing on the couch.  For me, it feels like a muscle twitch, but one that only occurs once every 15 seconds to a minute over a period of 10-20 minutes as opposed to the fast repetitive twitching of a normal muscle twitch.  I wasn't fully sure it was baby at first, but since I've felt it pretty regularly over the past week, especially when sitting, I believe it is.  I'm feeling mine right at the top of my uterus, just below my belly button.  It's been in the same spot all week.  What really lead me to believe that it's Baby is that when I went in for my gender ultrasound on Wednesday, I found that Baby is head down with her head by my pelvis, which would mean that when she stretches out, her feet would kick me at the top of my uterus right by my belly button.  All I can advise is sit down, relax, watch some tv, and maybe Baby will start to stretch.

  • I didn't feel anything until 21 to 22w with my daughter. I've had a few times where I've thought maybe I felt something, but nothing definite.

  • I started feeling him at about 20 weeks exactly, but it took a few days to realize it wasn't gas adjusting. It feels like little thumps. I also have an anterior placenta.

  • I was 32 weeks with DS before DH could feel him move but once he started it was consistent. I've been feeling movement from the inside for the last few weeks.
