Caviar really hope you've struck lucky and not caught it and I hope your scan goes to plan and he stays still for you xx

Jello not nice waiting another week but my DH would be gutted to miss a scan he loves seeing him and I thinks it helps him become more attached to him too xx

I feel Alex move around everyday now which is great no hiccups yet bit love feeling him move only felt one or two kicks so far but its such a wierd and wonderful experience people havd asked me what it feels like and I can only describe it as something physically moving around in me like I swallowed a live fish and its moving about I said if I didnt know I was pregnant Id panic and go Drs thinking I had a tapeworm or something lol xx

Angela that's how I describe it too...like a little fish wiggling inside me. Definitely a weird but wonderful feeling!

I hope everyone stays well! Another cold is making an appearance at our house and I'm dreading the possibility of being sick during the anatomy scan next week!

I have a difficult time distinguishing digestion vs tiny movements most of the time! I like feeling the obvious movements/kicks. It's been a little less in the past 24 hrs or so though.

Well I'm back from my anatomy scan. Everything looked well however they were unable to get a profile picture because LO had his face smashed into the placenta so they plan to have us come back at a later date. I had to anyways because they're keeping an eye on my fluid levels to make sure I don't end up with polyhydramnios again. Baby is measuring in the 97th percentile already. Big boy. No wonder I've been feeling so much movement. I've added some pictures from the scan today of his feet, a hand and his face which looks a little scary with him being smooshed in the placenta lol.

Lol Angela I agree those black eyes are scary. Kind of looks like a raccoon

I loved the hand pic though. I never had any of my babies open their hand like that during an ultrasound. Usually they kept them tight in fists and were sucking their thumbs. I think he was telling the tech to go away... she was interrupting his nap lol.

Starlight usually digestion happens for me in my upper stomach above my belly button. If you're feeling thumps/bumps below your belly button it is probably baby. Mine also has days where he is more active than others. I'm sure once the baby gets bigger you'll be able to feel baby all the time. Even little movements can be felt once you get further along.

I think I felt a lot more with my daughter because I had a posterior placenta with her.

My stomach is up by my ribs now lol feels so strange.

Sorry to bring up a rather dark subject, but I don't have many 'friends' to talk to. Has anyone dealt with depression during pregnancy? Don't know who to really talk to about it, not really comfortable to bring it up to my OB and don't want to worry my husband; not that he's really there because of work. Just thought I'd ask, just kind of feel this is more then hormones this time around.
