    Hi all!

    I am worried about this movement lark,I think I have felt baby move, although after i doubt myself! But it is not regular or consistent, for a few days about 10pm i would feel something but then some days nothing at all...

    The other day I THOUGHT i felt like a rolling feeling but nothing since... then another day i thought i felt a little kick but again nothing since...

    It is my first baby. Im a worrier at the moment!

    maybe baby is still learning the whole 'look what i just did with my leg' stuff.

    i will just wait a while and see what happens. this pregnancy motherhood stuff keeps you on your toes doesnt it lol

    Oh I was just reading in a book about this. It said the babys so small that is might be facing in and kicking, or kicking at night when you are asleep, or too busy to notice. I am also quite worried I am feeling all emotional about gas, not peanut wriggling at all!

    This is what i think when i do feel something 'oh it could have just been gas' i think until i feel a wallop i wont believe it is the baby anyway, hopefully will get a kick soon and then i will know what im looking for!

    don't worry it's difficult the first time round, it's likely you are feeling baby but because you haven't had a baby before you don't know - I was the same. Once the movements get a lot stronger then you'll know all about it :)

    I already left a comment in your journal about this.

    But my midwife said its very normal for first timers not to feel their baby till around the 22 weeks mark , and this is certainly true with me.

    Before that i felt like butterflies feeling but not kicks or movements so strong like now where i thought " oh thats the baby"

    When i was reading the forum , i was reading people feeling kicking at 19 weeks and i was like how , i think everyone is different. But i think majority feel more regularity from 22 weeks onwards.

    So dont worry.

    Shining Star described the first movements to me as it's like when you've got a twitch in your eye - that's how it felt for me too at first.

    I am the same. I feel things but cannot be sure what they are, I cannot say for sure if it is her moving. I won't be certain like you until I feel a massive kick and I can :wohoo:

    Im going to make some lunch and then eat some sugary and cold drinks to see if i can get something from the little lazy baby xxx

    I was round at my mates the other night (she is 33 weeks) and baby was being stubborn, so we were giving her a good poke and she was poking back, its so cool! I cant wait. I want to feel some flutters!!
    Katie - its a great excuse to eat sugar though to get the bubba to kick :dance: he he

    Babe, stop fretting. It sounds very much like baby movements to me....and in just a couple of weeks from now you'll be getting such regular movements that you'll be laughing that you ever doubted what these little jiggles were:happydance::happydance::happydance:

    Smudge is much livelier now than he/she was a fortnight ago:cloud9:
