MamaJo - June 29

Hello everyone, I'm knew to this forum. I'm due Nov 29th (currently 18 weeks). I have a 6 year old boy, so I have forgotton what it's like to be pregnant again...

So my question is.... Every time I yawn and/or sometimes when I take deep breaths, I feel a really hard kick, if that's what they are... I'm afraid that I'm kinda hurting him/her when yawn... it's just a really weird feeling. Does anyone else ever have these "kicks?"

Youre not hurtin the baby at all. I am now 19 weeks and i felt very minor activity but this is my 1st and thy say 1 st time moms feel less early on.

Hi Mamajo, I am 20 wks and I have also been feeling definite kicks and movement. My baby tends to do this alot after I have eaten! It is nothing to worry about, just be glad that you are one of a handful of people that actually get to feel your baby move and kick early on in your pregnancy. Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy & take care! x

Maybe it happens when you yawn because it rocks the baby, so your he/she responds? I know with all of my pregnancies, that would happen. :)

maybe its because yawning takes in a lot of oxygen and therefore it might feel to your baby like a deep breath. I wouldnt think thats bad though! :o) (random useless fact: the body wants to yawn not just because we are tierd but because or brain is not getting enough oxygen.)

That happens to me too!! Started during my 16th week, and happened again today while I'm in my 19th week. I was really worried about it- but am glad that it must be normal since it happens to others too! I wish a doctor would respond regarding what it really is.
