the difference between the babies??? Right now I sometimes think that I can but other times I can't figure it out. This morning I was laying on my left side and I felt little thumps on that side...then I turned over on my right side and felt little thumps on that side.

I am just wondering if I will ever be able to tell the difference between babies???

Basically, it felt like I had aliens inside Sometimes I could tell, but that's only because Braeden was transverse and way up high in my rib cage and Jamison was the lowest with his head in my cervix (my opinion is that my cerclage kept him in) and so I sometimes felt hiccups down in my hoo hoo and knew that was him.

Thank you to *Kiliki* for creating the perfect siggy!

FOr the most part I could. The girls stayed in the same position just about the whole time.

Every time I went for a sono, I had the dr show me exactly how each baby was positioned so about 90% of the time, I could tell who was who kicking or punching. once they got bigger and it was more crowded though, it was a crap shoot! Joey was stretched out on my left side and poor little Alex was breach and curled up in a little ball on my right.

Thank you .h00dihoo.this. for my awesome siggy!

I could tell for a long time who was moving when. Like others, it got harder at the end becasue there were arms and legs everywhere. I did have an anterior placenta, so I felt one baby less than the other since she kicked against that.

Thank you peimum for my siggie

I can. Both girls are staying in the same general area - they may change positions but baby a is down low by my bladder or off to right a bit and baby b is on top - sometimes off to the left a bit.

One of mine is breech and the other is vertex and the breech baby has an anterior placenta while the vertex baby doesn't. If the movement is REALLY pronounced and on the right I know it is Zoey and if it's more muted and on the left I know it's paige. When I feel it kindof in the middle I'm not sure who it is Since about 28 weeks or so (30 wks now) it's been easy to tell, before that it was harder for me.

I can usually tell who is who, but my babies have been in the exact same positions since their 20 week scan and don't flip around like I have heard others do.

I can tell who's who when I feel kicks on the left or right side. If I feel it in the middle I have no clue. Baby A is on the left and to the bottom kind of curled up, and baby B is on the right side snuggled into my ribs. She's transverse so she hogs all the room for her sister lol.
