baby movement

It's nice to feel all d butterflies n bubbles. Sometimes I feel ticklish inside and wish my husband feels the same. Trust me it's a nice feeling... knowing someone lives in there.

Also mine only happens around bed time must have a little night owl

I'm 9 weeks preggies

At this stage I can already feel tiny movements, but they very light I really need to be still to feel them. Its a great feeling never had this with my first pregnancy but with my second I'm already showing. I don't know but for some strange reason when I eat it gets really big as if I'm 3months already. but cant wait for him/her hopefully it will be her.

11 weeks 2 days

I felt my baby's flutters for the first time at 11 weeks, 2 days. This is my first pregnancy, and while all of the books say that you cannot feel the baby move this early, I know what I felt. It was not gas because I had a colon resection in 2011, and I no longer have a colon where I felt this flutter. I've also heard baby's heart beat with a fetal doppler at home.

—Guest Amen


This is my first pregnancy, and I'm 17 weeks and 6 days. I've been feeling flutters for a couple weeks now, and today was the first time I saw and felt the baby actually kick! It was so amazing! After reading stories online, I wasn't expecting this to happen so soon, but I'm SO happy it did. :) Unfortunately no one was home to feel it other than myself.
—Guest First time mommy
