    Hey

    The weirdest thing happened to me today....I was drinking a smoothie and watching big brother and the baby starting kicking (for the 100th time today). It was kicking and somersaulting so hard I thought I'd lift up my top and have a look and OMG I saw the baby kick then move across my tummy!!! I rang my sister and she said I am lucky to ba able to see the baby do this at only 20 weeks so now I'm slightly freaked out that I either have the biggest baby in the world, the most active baby in the world or the thinnest skin in the world! lol

    Anyone else felt this at 20 weeks?

    Lou :)

    Hi Lou

    Yes - I started seeing my tummy move around 19-20 weeks - which is when hubbie first felt a kick as well!! Some people say later on they can tell whether it is a foot/hand/elbow but I can't see that yet.

    Funny that you were drinking a smoothie - I've found if I'm drinking anything sweet it sets baby off - it must be the sugar rush!

    Hi guys

    Glad to know I'm not the only one! Was a bit worried for a while there :) My mum agree's with you about the smoothie's. She was pregnant with my little sister 24 years ago and had a craving for slush puppies then wondered why my sister kicked and flipped in her tummy constantly! The slush puppies must have been full of additives and sugar and E numbers!

    I think I need to watch my diet a bit more closely from now on, my poor baby must be worn out lol

    :) Lou

    I have also heard that if you drink a really cold drink (ie a slush puppy) they will wriggle to get away from the cold sensation.

    I saw bubs move at 17 weeks and she hasn't stopped since, she keeps me up most nights, i think the reason i feel her so much is because ther's not much water in the sac.

    I've also read that the reason you feel the baby more at night is because in the day when you're moving about you're rocking the baby to sleep but then when you lie down she wakes up. hence the reason babies like to be rocked to sleep when they're born. Not sure how true it is but kinda makes sense
