I feel almost like a light tapping/stroking when I lie down or sit down sometimes now. I dont want to think it's the baby, but I can't think of anything else it could be. I pray that it is him/her moving around in there. I thought it would be too early though with me being a first time mommy

I feel like I need an U/S machine like the one Tom Cruise bought Katie Holmes so I can actually see baby moving to know for sure (and people think I'm crazy for wanting a doppler).

i had a doppler (rented from baby beat) with my ds, I LOVED it..... that is soon to feel movement but people do. I am 19w3d and not much for me, the baby has an anterior (front) placenta plus i'mover weight.

doppler is a sanity saver, if you can afford to rent one, I'd recommend it...money is just too tight for us this time!

if you are thin it isn't too early. I felt movement around 9 weeks with everyone except my first. Your doctor will probably tell you you are crazy so don't even bother Mine told me I probably wasn't feeling anything and I told him he hasn't been pregnant 4 times, he laughed and agreed.

You could be feeling movement. This is my first(that I've carried past 11.5 weeks) and I felt her at 16 weeks by 19 my mate (DH) was feeling her. By 21-22 weeks we could watch her from the outside.

So congratulations on feeling your little one move. Yay

Congratulations on the feelings, sounds to me you are feeling the baby. I don't think it is to early I am sure you are very intunned with your pregnancy for reasons we all know.
I thought I felt movement the other day but I don't think I am going to count it just yet.
My first I felt them at 19w, second 16 weeks.
But yeah if your a tiny girl and your uterus is straight up against you no doubt could it be. ENJOY!!!

I swear that is what I have been feeling but haven't said anything b/c I didn't want anyone to think I am crazy. I bet its your little baby in there. Its pretty neat to feel something inside of you moving around....to cool!!

I thought I was crazy too and I'm pretty sure my husband thought I was having gas I want the little one to start punching and kicking, so I really know for sure what it is going on in there!

Sounds like your little one is saying hello finally! I could feel flutters at about 9 weeks (but I'd been pregnant enough before to have felt it and I KNEW what it was), but nothing consistent. I still have skipped days of movement, but last week, I had 2 STRONG movement days! I was SOOOOO excited.

I read a post about the baby moving to the back, which has made me feel much better about not feeling it all the time. I'd sort of forgotten that it might turn so it didn't face the front!
