I feel like its so early at not even 18 weeks yet, but last night I felt the lo move on the outside (when my hand was on my belly) already! Just felt and saw it again. This is my second pregnancy so I expect things to happen sooner but this is a bit much lol. With the first, I felt the outside movements around 25 weeks I believe.

I'm also as big on my belly as I was around 25 weeks already though I haven't even gotten back to me pre preg weight yet.

Still wondering if there's more than one inside..I've had a strong feeling and they run in my family. But I had a trans vag ultrasound that showed just one.

I finally felt one little poke last night......one little quick poke. The sweetest feeling ever because of one little poke. She was telling me hello for the first time :-)

Re: Feeling movement on the outside!?

I was in total disbelief when I started feeling LO move and kick around 15 weeks. I didn't feel those things with my first till I was about 22 weeks and didn't feel outside movement till a couple weeks after that!

My midwife actually felt this LO kick her hand at 16 weeks when she was feeling my uterus and we laughed because it surprised us both! A few days later DH felt a few kicks for the first time! It was so neat! Now, at 18 weeks, I feel her moving around all the time. I love it!

Re: Feeling movement on the outside!?

I still can't hardly feel movement. My placenta is anterior this time, so it's absorbing most of the movement. I can feel an occasional light flutter, every couple days or so. I'm right at eighteen weeks, so this is really unusual for me. With two of my previous pregnancies DH had already been feeling the baby for a week or two.

I know I need to be patient. From what I hear with anterior placentas I should be able to feel a lot more in the next few weeks as the baby gets bigger and stronger. I'm just impatient and missing that early contact with babe.
