Hey there!I am a little over 16 weeks and I for the passed few days I think I'm been feeling the baby move! Feels like little flutters or mini pulses randomly. Has anyone else felt their baby move around this time?
EDD is 01/01/14 - but I have a feeling we will have another Dec baby!
That is about when I felt movement with my first, and I'm feeling it again this time.
It depends on your build and the baby and placenta placement in your uterus. Last time, I had a very squirmy fetus who managed to get the cord around her neck thrice. After about 25 weeks, I rarely went an hour without multiple kicks and flips so I never had to worry about kick counts. lol. Then she became a squirmy newborn who *never* slept.
lrachelle80:It'd be really early for a first-time mom to feel the baby around that time (average is closer to 20 weeks) but it's possible. The mini pulses are probably not baby; those are more likely uterus twitches from your muscles expanding and loosening.
This makes a ton of sense to me - I was kind of worried "feeling" the baby, then not feeling the baby for weeks - but I must have been feeling my uterus twitching! I knew I was feeling something I have never felt before, but it did not feel like popcorn popping, or butterflies. Hopefully I will really feel the baby soon :)
With my first I felt flutters between 15-16 weeks. It's definitely possible.
With my 1st I felt them around 22wks
My 2nd around 18wks
This time my 3rd, I felt them around 14wks.
I agree that the more children you have the earlier you recognize and know just what you're feeling. Really a neat feeling no matter how early/late you feel them!
