    hi everyone,

    i'm so excited as i think i am starting to feel him move but wanted to check that this sounded right and it's not anything else!

    I'm 17 weeks and for the last 3 days have felt a very light fluttering feeling at different places over my stomach. it's happening more and more and feels like someone is tickling me very gently from the inside. i've felt it all over, also on my lower back/side and mainly just to the right of my tummy button. does this sound too high for 17 weeks or do you think it's him moving?!

    Thanks for your help! :) x

    once you have more than 1 pregnancy you are most likely to feel the baby faster than you felt your first baby.

    Congrats:)
    That is great! I can't wait to start feeling mine moving all around!
    I have had a couple of very light moments that were similar, but I am not ready to "commit" LOL, and one very odd feeling when bending over that I know had to be baby, but I am waiting on the frequent movements you describe:)! Shouldn't be long, though!

    I get the fluttery feeling very strongly when i bend over, I dont think he likes that too much! I'm sure it wont be long before you are feeling this all the time too! :)

    I've been wondering about this too...just didn't want to ask!

    The first time I felt it was around 12w, and it kind of felt like a little fish swimming back and forth, but like flitting about on the sides and it would tickle, but since last week, I can feel it way more often. It actually makes me giggle, and then I'll rub my tum, and I feel like we're playing together. OH says I've been giggling in my sleep also, so I think that's funny! I can't wait until I feel 'her' more strongly, but this feeling is so wonderful! :cloud9:
