So I'm officially telling people I'm out of my first trimester!! I don't know if its at 13 weeks or down to the exact day or a few more, but close enough either way. Should I be starting to look something other than just having a beer belly yet? Also for BTDT moms, should I be starting to feel the baby soon?... nothing yet! But I'm happy time is going by.
Congrats! Everyone shows at different times. Some women show sooner than others. Feeling the baby is different for everyone woman too. It's very common to not feel much until you are about 18 weeks or so. Some feel it sooner and others not until later.
Wow, congrats!! You probably won't feel the baby move for several more weeks. I think I was 16-17 weeks with my first. My second was sooner, around 14 weeks. You should feel pretty good during your 2nd trimester!
wow!!! congrats! i didn't feel my son move until 17 weeks. I don't remember exactly when i really popped out and people could tell i was pregnant, but probably around that time (17 weeks)..before that it was looking like a nasty beer belly haha.
Congrats on the 2nd trimester mark...
You still probably won't feel your baby for another 3 to 7 weeks.
First time mothers usually dont know until its a distinct kick.
I clearly felt my son kick hard at 16weeks. Good luck!

With my first I popped out and felt my first flutters at 16 weeks. It apparently depends on your stomach muscles, where the baby is positioned and where the placenta is.
WIC told me the "average" time to feel the baby is between 20-24 weeks but I definitely felt her way sooner than that! It took me three days of feeling her move before I realized that was actually what it was though - I kept thinking it was some strange sort of gas

Hehe, that's funny, I'll probably be the same way though

I actually never got any morning sickness, surprisingly. Even my doc was a bit shocked to hear that. But my mom didn't have any with me or either of my sisters, so it might just run in the family. She did get a sweet tooth though and I definitely got that already!
I'd say I'm starting to feel less tired during the day and more able to do stuff around the house. But still I am exhausted at the end of the day (I'm finally being able to sleep a little better, not sure if thats just because I got a body pillow though yay!).
I felt flutters kind of early. People say they feel like butterflies in your stomach. I felt those around 12-13 weeks. I felt kicks around 18 weeks...right around the time I found out his gender. It get's really fun when the baby starts to roll around and your tummy gets lopsided because his or her butt is in the air...lol. Or when you are just sitting down and all of a sudden you see your belly jerk because of a kick...it's really weird..LOL!
