    Stupid question, but DH just asked if I had something to tell him - I was talking to him and rubbing my lower stomach - I told him not yet, but I wasn't even conscious of it happening?

    Would be interested if anyone has done something similar and had it pointed out to them.

    :bfp: s ladies

    Yep, I do this too. Nobody's pointed out to me; I don't know if anyone's noticed, but I've definitely noticed myself doing it.
    What are we like?!

    I do it all the time (and always have even before I was TTC)

    What I did get caught doing the other night was prodding my belly (I have posted this in another thread so apologies if you've already read it)

    Mr Urch asked 'What are you doing'
    'What does it look like I'm doing?' I answered
    He put his head on one side, looked at me in all seriousness and said
    'Trying to clean your belly button but repeatedly finding it's not where you think it is'

    Absolutely priceless :rofl:

    I do this all of the time now. I was hoping my instincts were kicking in but I've been getting BFNs. It's just so soothing.

    i do, alot... or if i pass by a mirror i'll check for a bump (at 3/4 weeks, as if lol)
    stick my tummy out as far as possible and convince myself "it's there it's there" oye


    does that work?
    i'd turn a nice shade of red if anyone offered haha

    I catch myself doing it too and then furtively look around to see if anyone's noticed. My DH would think I'm bonkers if he saw me lol.
