I am so confused. I just had my apptment 2 with my ob a few days ago. I told him that the baby kicks alot and keeps me up all night. He told me there there is know way I should be feeling the baby move so much and so hard. I am 21 weeks and 2 days. Why can I feel that my baby move so much? And why is she kicking so hard? But yet the doctor tells me she cant be. What is going on?
I am vary small and only weight between 126 and 130. Could that be why?I mean I have only gained about 6 to 8 pones.
I am indeed no medical expert, but in my opinion that is just a bunch of bs. How much and how hard you feel you baby move, again in my opinion, depends on the baby's size, position, and on your own size.
I finally started truly feeling my baby move about 19 weeks. I say truly, because before then I really couldn't determine the difference between baby movements, gas, and muscle cramps/stretches. However, since feeling that first movement they have only increased in frequency and in intensity. Sometimes it feels so strong that it seems she could be punching or kicking straight through my stomach.
I am at about 25 weeks 3 days now. Normally I feel my baby move a little bit every 2 - 3 hours. Some days I barely feel her move at all. The times that I feel her the most, and the strongest, is when I am laying down. So far her most active and strongest punches and kicks come sometime between 8 pm and 2 am. As of my ultrasound on december 16th my little one weighed 1 lb 3 oz. I am pretty sure she weighs more now, because my middle is growing bigger by the day.
I am going to be 25 weeks in 2 more days and I have been feeling my baby kicking lots since I was about 19 weeks. I always felt little things before that but they have gotten harder, stronger and more frequent as time goes on.
I started out weighing 103 pounds and I now weigh 124 pounds. I have read that if you are thin you will be able to feel more things sooner than when you are heavier set.
I will be 25weeks this sunday and my baby is doing the same thing with the strong kicks and moving around heaps which sometimes causes me pain, im not worried at all because he/she is moving and obviously happy and healthy in there, now if there was hardly any movements at all I would be worried. So dont worry so much, I know its uncomfortable and hard to sleep but in the end its all worth it.
Amen amen...To everyone...My baby has been kicking since 18/19 weeks..And when I say kicking..I'm talking like tai kuan do!!! Lol....Seriously...He may say what he thinks...But you know what you feel!!
