Blessed with #2

I have a 13 month old son and I barely felt his movements while pregnant with him. I am now 5 months pregnant now with a girl and since I was 18 weeks pewgnant (now 20) I feel her move quite often. It is the most awesome feeling! :)

I first felt my baby girl at 16weeks! Like popping and bubbles, and yes the butterflies. The overwhelming feeling I felt inside me I knew it was her! I gradually then felt every week getting stronger now at 20 weeks! She's really active! It's amazing and I love the feeling she gives me xx

9 weeks 3 days

As I laid on the couch this morning I felt that all too familiar feeling near my pelvis on the right lower side of my body. This is my second pregnancy, and I am pregnant only a year after delivering my daughter. I felt her move at 15 weeks and I wasn't showing with her until 20 weeks. I'm already starting to popout a little bit this time And feeling occasional movement. Call me crazy. I know what I felt!

15 weeks 4 days

I went to the doctors yesterday and came home and was showing my husband where they heard the babies heartbeat and felt something harder, so I grabbed my husbands hand and placed it where I felt it and he felt it to. I put my hand back on and it moved! We both freaked out and I know it was the baby. My husband is one that is hard to convince of something like that and he believes that's what it was too! So neat! I was feeling flutters start last week around 14 weeks 5 days while I was at work. Such a cool feeling!

She loves daddy!

My baby kicks on a very tight schedule.. in the morning when my husband rolls over to say good morning he kisses my stomach and she kicks for about an hour, and then in the evenings when i get home for work and we settle down for the night, and again i am near him. He doesn't feel her kicks as much as I do, but this routine has been this way for about a month now. I think it is a pretty neat thing... She must be able to feel our connection as a couple. One of the coolest things for me :)

Fetal Movement

My advice is to pay attention to your body!! My daughter was not moving at all when I was 38 weeks pregnant...Thinking it was nothing, I didn't go to the doctor immediately. However, I ended up going and turns out my daughter would have died had I not made it to the hospital in time. She failed her biophysical test (scored 2 of 8) and was at a -0- by the time they delivered her by C Section 2 hours later. Pay attention to your body and if you have the slightest feeling someting is wrong, it probably is! Better to be safe than sorry. Maddox is now a happy healthy 11 month old and I'm SO THANKFUL I went to the doctor when I did.
