Can one really really feel and tell it's baby's movement for the very first time? Will I be able to know?
If like bubble/gas I most likely will think it's my tummy coz it's always so gassy nowadays
After reading all your sharing, I shall need to be patience and wait for the wonderful kicking movements from my lovely son. Yohz, I am prepared!! hahaha...
My hubby always complain cannot feel the baby movement when he touch my tummy.
Few days ago, my boy decide to let his daddy know he is happily kick inside the mummy tummy.
So, after my hubby help me to massage the leg and apply the strech mark cream. We are waiting, and suddenly my tummy have something poke up.
That is my boy say hello to his daddy!
no worries, i experience the same feeling as you too cos i'm also a 1st time mum n gal is also an oct baby but is in yr 08.. and i have chk with my gynae that its normal when we didnt get to feel our baby movements cos 1st of all, we r new to the movements n maybe it so light that we could not feel it or dont really know when they are actually kicking... you can only feel it like around 24 wks which will be a very obvious kick cos mum at 2nd birth could feel the kick better cos they have already gt the past experience there n i did compare with my frend who is at her 2nd birth n even though her EDD is 1 month later than mine, she could actually feel her baby movements at 20wks n as for me is 24wks at my 1st birth... so maybe another wk or more you will be able to experience this wonderful feeling, enjoy! =)
17 weeks and 5 days pregnant! I think I am finally starting to feel the movement. I felt gentle poking/thumping on my lower tummy! *Get excited, runs around screaming like a little gal
I had this feeling for the past 2 days but I wasn't sure. Could it be the baby huh huh? O_O

But now since early this week,i have been feeling very obvious movements in my lower abdomen..Just 2 nights ago,i felt a strong thump at my backbone...I was sooo shocked and scared at first coz i was alone in our house that night as hubby was working his night shift..!! Baby always starts moving from evening till night..It kind of tickles me actually and i will end up talking to him and giggling at the same time..
Yeah, when i went for my scan, I saw the baby kicking up a storm but I couldn't feel anything, doctor said something about adominal wall thick, but i think maybe I got too much fats, LOL!
Which part of the tummy do you ladies usually feel the baby movement/kick? Mine is always a little to the left (center-left)
Me also left bottom.. but when near delivery time is all over like that.. haha.. now my gal super active.. now i know what she doing in the stomach already..
Me too...!!! Most of the movements are felt at the lower left side of my abdomen but since about 2 days ago,ive felt movements at the lower centre of my abdomen..Perhaps my baby boy has found more room to kick around in..?? Hehehehe...Last night,i placed my hands on my abdomen and felt a strong kick..Can even see my blubbery tummy "vibrating"..I cried a bit coz i felt a very strong emotion after seeing it...But seems like my baby quite naughty..I can feel him moving and kicking but the minute i place my hand on my tummy,he will sit still..!!!
Yeah, to be able to feel the movement is such an amazing feeling. There used to be an old wives tales about the position of where the baby frequently kick could determine the baby gender haha...
i feel more in love ever since my baby kicks alot.. he kicks more before and after meals, maybe before i eat he can hear my stomach growling?? haha.. also in the middle of the night he would wriggle so much that i can't sleep. every night hubby reads bedtime story to his boy and he would respond by kicking too..
shiseru, maybe you can pay attention when you lie down cos you can feel it more. i noticed that my baby like to kick me towards the inner side not the surface of my tummy. so i feel like my bladder area there very ticklish. anyone else experience this?
so exciting ? I started to feel the bubble-feeling about 2wks ago.. around 19th wks. i am still only feeling the bubble feeling - still waiting for his first kick!!! hey but ladies, is the 1st kick really hard? cos i can sometimes feel, "thump thump"... "thump thump".. but i dont't know if that's a soft kick? Anyway, do you think baby can feel us touching our tummy from outside? sometimes when i feel his "thump thump", i plc my hubby's hand there, then it stop - but if i didnt, he will continue to "thump thump".. hehe... so noti.. :P
hmm... my first kick was not hard.. more ticklish rather... i tried playing with baby by pressing on left side of tummy and tell her to kick there.. sometimes it works sometimes it doesnt... hahaha...going on to 27weeks and now the kicks are harder!
But sometimes, when my boy is happy he will let his daddy feel his kick....
So far, my hubby only manage to feel the kicking about 3 times only...
today i saw something amazing, so does hubby. we saw baby kicking on the surface of the tummy, can see below belly button area and same spot vibrate a few times. we were starring at my tummy about 15min. lately baby been very active and i can feel him kick when i place my palm on tummy, so today when i noticed he's active i decide to lie down and pull my shirt up, then that amazing sight, feel so happy..
Yep the baby stops kicking if my hubby or myself will to place our hands there, baby must have felt something suspicious toosometimes when i feel his "thump thump", i plc my hubby's hand there, then it stop - but if i didnt, he will continue to "thump thump".. hehe... so noti.. :P
