So I think I might be feeling the baby moving but I really don't know because this is my first. It's just when I'm driving so either it's me just feeling the vibrations of the car or the baby is either liking/not liking the vibrations and bouncing all around. It's so quick and because I am driving I can't take the time to try and see if that is what it is.

Anyone notice movement when driving in particular?

I have been feeling baby a lot lately but not while driving simply because I never drive! Hubby drives every where so no help there. But it is very possible it is baby.

I have felt baby when driving. When sitting up very straight too. Because the jeans are lower and hit into my stomach q bit and I think it pushes the baby and that's why the moving. I was laying on my bed quietly pushing on my stomach and I felt something firmer than anywhere else and I pushed a little in and the baby kicked 5 inches or so from where I pushed. I think it might have been the head lol.

It could be like you said because I'm sitting complete upright and my pants are pressing too.

Oh maybe it was the head, that is cool that you can felt the kicks like that.

My last 2 kicked the most when I would be in the car. Of course, I drove an hour 1-way to work so I spent a lot of time in the car, especially when coupled with the activities my older girls are in. You'll definitely know within a few weeks if that's what you're feeling.

We went for a long 6+ hour drive on the weekend and I noticed baby was super active almost the whole time, I think he or she likes the car.

I've been feel stuff all day now, so I'm torn as to whether it's baby or gas. LOL or maybe both. My drive is anywhere from 45 to 60 minutes to work so I'm in the car a fair bit.

It could be! My pants sometimes hurt my belly when I am driving because of the way I end up sitting and it seems to really irritate baby.

Yes!!! I have a 1 hr-an hour and 15 minute one way commute to work every day, and during my drive is ALWAYS when I feel what I am 99% sure is baby, lol. I think it's because I am really active and moving all day and then driving home my body is finally at rest.

So this is also the time that I have taken up singing to baby. It might sound crazy, but I read that he/she can hear now and will recognize my voice and songs I sing/play after birth if I sing and talk to him/her more now.
