Fluffy yeay feeling them move is so exciting! Initially feels just like that, bubbles/popping, then moves to taps and then proper hard kicks and somersaults! And during last few weeks like an alien trying to escape your body

Officially half baked Less than 24 hours until our anatomy scan now. I don't think I will sleep tonight, lol.

Every week feels like a birthday, logging into the app to see how big baby is. But this particular milestone feels especially significant!

Happy 20 weeks Lucy ^.^ It is a big milestone! In my head, the big milestones are: 12 weeks, 20 weeks and 30 weeks (my gynecologist says once there is a 3 in front, baby would have good chances if born ). Crossing my fingers for your anatomy scan! Which apps are you using? I have What to Expect and Ovia on my phone.

@Bonnie
I hope I will feel proper kicks soon and especially that hubby can feel her soon too! Might take a while with my anterior placenta though, I guess we'll have to be patient.

Thank you Fluffy! I am a little nervous about the anatomy scan since we haven't even seen our little one since 8 weeks, and we didn't do any of the blood testing. But I have faith! I am using the Ovia app. Love seeing the hands and feet grow.

Happy ticker day Lucy!! Goodluck with your appointment tomorow please keep us updated.

Sorry to hear about your placenta fluffy, you are likely to feel movements later on though Try drinking ice water or eat something sweet, you are likely to feel movements then.

From 28 weeks you need to check and time the movements, baby is likely to survive on the outside world from then This is also generally the time when they start to lay head down, however they can still turn head down later on.

Update: last night we got the best reassurance we could ask for before today's appointment; I didn't just feel baby move, I SAW baby move! I could see them kicking through my stomach!

This morning, we got an A+ from the doc! She was happy with my weight and blood pressure, all the scans look good, and baby is measuring right where he/she should. We did not find out the gender. It is killing me to know that the doctor knows what we are having, but we don’t, lol! Baby did not cooperate to get a good shot of their profile or brain. I walked around, took the stairs, and even danced around to try to make them move, but baby was stubborn. Starting to think that is going to be a character trait, lol. So I have to go back next week to try to get those shots, but the doctor wasn’t worried.

Thats awesome Lucy! I bet you will feel the movements more regularely now. when you get into the 30 weeks, your tummy will be moving on its own LOL I loved when I could start to feel her body body parts, for example when she tried to kick my lungs with her feet, and tickle my hip bone with her hands.
