Of all the things that people talk about in pregnancy, feeling your baby move is often one of the joys and missed things about pregnancy. But when do you feel the baby kick? When do other people feel the baby move? Was it different in subsequent pregnancies? Does your baby move enough or too much? These are all things women want to know. So share your story about feeling your baby move, your cures, calms and curses. Talk About Fetal Movement

I felt my baby Kicking!

I am 16 weeks and I have just felt the "popcorn popping-like" sensation on my right side! Normally, I just feel a couple of kicks and then nothing, but this was a steady, fast 10 kicks in a row! I am so excited, I even stopped to chat with my little jelly bean and ask how my baby is doing in there!

Amazing feeling

Im 26 weeks 1 day pregnant and my baby kicks realy hard, lm actually thinking they are twins coz my baby kicks me both sides of my tummy simultaneously. Sometimes its really painful but its an amazing feeling though.

Corporate baby

My baby loves to participate in all my office meetings! When everyone speaks, it kicks in return making its presence felt. I cant concentrate any more because I am amused at its presence.

"I think it kicked me!!"

its my first pregnancy,I'm 14w and i was curled up in a chair drinking a tea when all of a sudden i felt this kind of knocking going on right below my belly button. 5 times. boom, boom, boom, boom, boom....I said to my bf "i think it kicked me" but to be honest im only 14w so i havent been expecting it. Ive had butterfly feeling for a few weeks... I told my bf to come put his hand on my belly.. & Then about a min later, there he/she went again!!! about 8 kicks.. was like a spasm... it was not gas... i can tell it was baby.. Made me giddy :) and of course i cried! haha

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.
