Posted in second tri, but I still feel iffy being there...so I want to post here too
So as you see i'm close to 14 weeks, so too soon probably to feel movement. However after a long two days of moving I woke up the next morning and went to go brush my teeth. I leaned forward and down a bit, and felt either a pop or a thud...down in the lower region...uterus etc area....it only happened that one time...but it sort of spooked me. I'm already as you may have read of my other post in here, constantly paranoid about mmc's and mc's...so anyways
any idea what that could have been? It wasn't really painful...just uncomfortable and weird...it felt like a thud, like if you rolled a ball the thud it makes when it hits the wall.
From where I see that you are already 14+ weeks what you felt was one of two things--either a muscle being stretched or due to the positioning you were in--you felt your first movement--probably a kick or elbow jab to let you know the baby was there and all is well...If your not cramping, or bleeding and it only happened this once and there was no pain involved when it happened--I'm going to lean towards movement of the baby!
I didn't think with your first baby you could feel movement that early...especially since i really haven't even started showing really
Sorry about the dates--I thought it said 14..LOL..Preggo eyes... but on the positive--I didn't think you could feel movement that early with the first either, but when I was pregnant with my son--I felt movement early on to--and similiar to what you describe--it mainly happened when I was in a certain position and depended on what I was wearing--like where the crease in my pants sat when I sat down...I def don't think you have anything to worry about hun!! I imagine it may or may not be awhile before you feel movement again--you just never can tell...
I felt my first movement precisely at 13+5. I wasn't sure at the time but in retrospect I really think it was movement, because I feel it all the time now and it was the same sensation. Like you, it's my first and I'm not showing very much (certainly wasn't at 13 weeks).
It's surprising that you felt it while standing up, since most people feel them when sitting or lying down at first. But it could still be movement. I believe you know your body best. And if you're not sure you can always wait and see if it happens again.
It was sort of funny, I leaned over quite a bit, trying to get something I dropped back into the trashcan (which could be why I might of had that feeling when normally you don't standing up), and although it worried me, all I could imagine at the moment it happened was the poor kid begin effected by gravity and slamming into the front of my uterus lol
I'm hoping it's movement! I have been really worried about mmcs lately for no reason at all...so anything that helps me get through the day makes it that much better
Haven't felt anything since then though...but as long as it doesn't sound like something I should alert my doc to then i'm happy
*plus hubby let me order a angel sounds doppler to sort of ease my worry, so just patiently waiting for that to get here in the mail*
I think all will be fine hun!!! Congrats on getting the monitor! That was super nice of the dh!! The chances of m/c or mmc do decrease at the 13th week mark--so that should be of some reassurance too!!
