Move Baby Move

I think I can safely say I AM FEELING THE BABY MOVE!!!!

At first when I felt it on Saturday I thought I was crazy.  "I'm only ten weeks."  But I felt it yesterday and just now too:)

Oh it's the best feeling in the whole world:)

***Update-  From the comments...don't mind Michelle, she is a little crazy. And if there is two, she will have her fifth child.
  And for Marge, I know it does seem quite early and I thought the same thing but a friend who is pregnant with me felt it this early.  I thought she was crazy (sorry Lisa, I do believe you and I love you:)) and since I was a labor/OB High Risk/Postpartum nurse I've been around tons of pregnant ladies.  And I had an ultrasound at six weeks that showed ONE baby (that was for Michelle although she still doesn't believe me) and it measured six weeks old .  They are pretty accurate at that gestation.  So I don't know:)  I waited until I felt it several times to make sure. It's a feeling like no other!  Amazing!  But also Marge, I had to have an early ultrasound with Piper for dates and she did end up coming 10 days earlier than they said.  So maybe you're right.  That would be a bonus!  And does that mean the sickness will end sooner?:) Ooohhh, I hope you're right!

That's so neat, Lindsay! It IS early to be feeling movement. Maybe you're farther along than you thought?

Michelle said...

No way!! Wow... I'm still unconvinced you don't have 2 in there... don't you think you might could feel 2 wrestling around in there at 10 weeks?? How great and reassuring - what a sweet gift from God in the midst of everything else you're experiencing!!!!

That was my favorite part of being pregnant! It is soooo amazing to feel a little hand or foot as it pokes on your belly :). I can't wait to meet this precious little one!!

I know it's early, but the baby IS moving and you're a thin woman, so I think it's entirely within the realm of possibility to be feeling it. Once you know what it feels like, after your first, I think it probably is much easier to discern. That is so cool!

Denise has a good point... you have much less tummy fat for your baby to get through than I would have! I will be a good friend and move from saying you should expect double the trouble and just say you are so slim, trim & fit you can feel a (just one) 10 week old baby moving. Much nicer, huh? :) How awesome!

It's okay Michelle, Jeremy still tells people there are three in there! Is he nuts? And I let him live. Hmmm.

I felt Kiley move, kinda butterfly flutters, really early...about 10-12 weeks. I wasn't sure what it was until it kept happening over and over. I didn't think you could feel the baby move that early either. Kiley was a mover in there...she moved and kicked all the time, so watch out! lol
