    Hey guys...anyone else feel a quickening this early? It's like something small flexing in my left lower abdomen, totally different to the fluttery contractions I used to get during my AF or in or around O time.

    Just wondered.

    I could have sworn I felt the same but my midwife and consultant said it was probably my 'insides' adjusting for the baby. Obviously the baby can move around freely though so I'm not entierly sure. Sorry that probably didn't help at all :roll:

    I think it would be unlikely that it would be the baby, afterall it would only be a few mm long and I don't even think it has any arms or legs yet for you to be able to feel it moving those. It's most likely your uterus stretching etc.
    I could'vw sworn that I felt something strange a couple of weeks ago when I was in bed, but I'm 100% sure it eas just things stretching, there's a lot of changes going on in there.

    I get them alot now around the bottom of my belly and on the right hand side, it is just your baby shoving everything out the way, the ones on my right hand side is the musles stretching, the ones on the bottom I think is my bladder (As it is always full, plus I don't go as regular if you get my drift) plus the added weight! Midwife said it is normal and good shows that something is happening! *GROW, BABY, GROW* I think We should feel it around 20 weeks give or take a few weeks when the baby as more room to move around!

    i have been having them for a couple of weeks now, the more children you have the eariler you can feel them move (so my midwife said) this is my 3rd pregnancy and by now i know what movements feel like.

    if you feel/think your baby is moving, trust and belive that :)

    Hi Layla

    I am also on my third and not having a great time. I had bad pregnancies for the first two and i cant believe i am going through it all again. I already have two boys but i am not really fussed what i have, how about you.

    I agree with what you said. when you know what to look out for you notice the symptoms earlier.

    take care

    Fetal distress after 21 hours of labour and only 4 cms gone with the first. With the 2nd they let me go one week over and then said that they could only give me the gel pessary once at half strength. only had two contractions and so they said no more chances c section. So this time i have been advised to have another c section.

    I suppose i would have like a natural birth, but Joshua (number 2) was 9lbs 10, so it was quite a relief really.

    Holy cow...13lbs?

    My husband was 10lbs when he was born and he has a rather large head. Uh-oh....

    I was just under seven with two weeks to go, my mom had preeclampsia.

    One of my aunts was 14lbs - a full stone, when she was born....and she was the 12th (and last) child in the family.
