I wonder

What does it feel like when the baby moves or kicks?

Does it feel like someone fluttering their fingers along the skin of your abdomen except from the INSIDE?

That has happened 3 times. The first time, it was so faint I couldn't be sure it even happened. I decided I must have imagined it.

The second time, it lasted longer. And when I lay down on my back it became more pronounced.

Today, just a few minutes ago, I felt it again. It gave me goosebumps.

The sensation is completely internal though. When I put my hand on my belly I can't feel anything with my fingers on the outside.

If that IS the baby though then how many limbs does a 4-month foetus have exactly? I ask because I feel it in different areas of my abdomen, upper, lower, left side, right side, sometimes simultaneously.

What ARE you doing in there exactly?


My scan has been rescheduled until next Wednesday as my doctor has come down with a very bad case of the flu.

Will try to call her later and tell her about this.

That's exactly what it feels like when it first kicks. I don't think it is necessarily limbs that you are feeling since it is so small it's just the whole body moving all over. Doing summersaults and stuff. It almost feels like a nerve twitch doesn't it? Wait till it gets bigger and you actually see this alien trying to turn over inside of you. You will see the whole elbow or knee sticking out. You'll have to give him a little nudge just to get him off of your rib or out of your throat! LOL So much more to look forward to!

later in your pregnancy isA, u'll be able to see the movement under your skin!! it will feel weird :) i remember it was tickling in my first pregnancy, but my second baby was more of a kicker it use to rather hurt... i hope urs is the tickling kind :))
