    Made me jump out of my chair and go "holy shyza!". I was at work overnight and all the ladies there (all moms) said that was probably the first swift kick. I've had some "fish tank" movement in the past 2 days.:shrug: I thought it was a bit too soon but there is no way that was gas

    it's way too early for that hon, your uterus should be below your belly button if you're 16 weeks. Unless you're carrying twins?

    i understand that people feel that its 'too early' for feeling movement. but every pregnancy is different. im feeling kicks, and pokes in my ribs, and although its earlier than most, its not impossible.

    Unless you have a very short trunk it's not likely it was baby, as lana said- before 20 weeks the top of your uterus is still below your belly button. Maybe it was kicks reverbarating up so it felt like it was the ribs. Feeling kicks anywhere at 16 weeks is great though!

    Must've been some sort of reverbarating then, it def was something not gas, but then I guess it is way too soon to be near the ribs!

    Twins? Nooo I don't think so, LOL. I had a scan at 6+5 (emerg one for threatened miscarriage) and there was only one sack. I'm in Canada so we don't get scans until 18 weeks again, but I figure twins would've showed by then!

    Then again, I think my belly seems quite huge. I'm a slimmer girl and my avatar was at about 15 weeks. LOL who knows.

    your uterus should only be around your belly button
