  • 16 weeks tomorrow and already feeling the LO move around in there!! It's incredible, although DH thinks it's weird. I'm sure he will be excited once he's able to feel the movement too!!

    Next check up is January 4th.

    Hope you all have a happy new year!!

  • Hi all! Having a quiet week here too. :) my next appointment is next Tuesday. I'm excited to see LO again.

    @kaitielynnrichardson that's awesome! I thought I felt baby move during a meetings week ago but OB said it was too soon (14-15 weeks at the time)and I haven't felt anything since. It was 3 distinct little pops (I still think it was LO). I usually feel everything, ovulation and implantation so I'm hoping I'll be sensitive and feel more soon. Really excited to feel him all the time!
  • That's not too early @HBamama2B. They say you can feel as early as 14 weeks but the average is 18-22. I felt my little one move for sure at 16 weeks,Mobutu felt little things here and there that I thought was baby before that! I'm starting to feel movement more and more now, but not consistently.

    My baby girl at 20 weeks as well as my bump at 20 weeks.

    I'm 23 weeks now. A tad bigger but not much. I've also been feeling movement lastly. Wasn't sure at first, but now definitely. Love it!

    Here's mine from last weekend! There's a lot of fettuccine Alfredo on top of baby. I always take a top down picture too Bc that's the view that really surprises me. :) and thanks @kaitielynnrichardson and @AdorkablePixie I feel less crazy. I woke up in the middle of the night and felt a flutter across my tummy that I'm pretty positive was him too. More to come I'm sure!! :smiley:

  • @HBMama2B : you look adorable! I've also taken top down pictures like you and have reached the point where I can no longer see my toes! I was surprised how quickly that happened!

    I have an anterior placenta and was told it'd be harder to feel baby move. I started feeling some definite movement at 18 weeks, and DH has been able to feel baby move too since about 20 weeks...so I think it's definitely possible!

  • I love the top down pictures. I should start doing that too! I'm posting one from last week and then a comparison with this week because I actually popped a little bit last week!
