Hey there all you mom's to be! Have you felt your baby move yet? I was just eating my breakfast and for the first time I was actually sure it was the baby moving and not gas bubbles like all the other times. What a surreal experience! I was so envious listening to you all talk about wishing I could feel the same thing and I finally did! It took long enough, I'm just starting my 19th week today. It was not a real hard move, just very subtle but it was real!!! I just want to sit here and wait for it again... :)

Congrats... I was also about the 19th week when i felt her kick, I used to have to lye on my stomach to feel it.. but over the past 7 weeks its gotten stronger, and even while im sitting here typing this, she is using me as a punching bag. When I started feeling the kicks i also thought they were wind bubble things.. lol. Wow.. its so exciting isnt it. I lye in bed at and my boyfriend can both see and feel the kicks, he can see her move, and wiggle around.. and he can see when she kicks straight up, you will be able to see all that soon. it is so exciting. But I know the first kick is the best. So, when are you due? and where abouts are you from ?

I'm due March 07th and I'm from Nova Scotia Canada, but right now living in South Korea on expat. You know, now I know what to look feel I can feel her moving again but I really have to pay attention for it. This is so amazing! Where are you from Rachel? Is this your first baby?

Lisa, Congratulations!! I am so happy for you. Wow, I bet it was amazing. I am almost 16 weeks and just feel bubbles. How far along are you?? Where are you from? I am in Florida and its night time here.

Thanks Jessica! I'm 19 weeks today and for the longest time all I could feel was bubbles but I was not sure if it was the baby; was it gas...I don't know. But today it was like a squirming in there...I could actually feel the baby moving around. It was awesome! I'm in South Korea right now and it's 11 am in the morning on Monday!

Im from Sydney, and im 27 weeks pregnant today.. this is my first bubba, and she is due January 16th.. ahh.. which is like the worst time to have her, cause it will be the exact middle of summer here.. and boy, does it get hot here. lol. Yeah.. I can feel her moving at the moment.. She is actually VERY active today, I sometimes go through days where she will probably kick once or twice, but today, i have felt her for hours, she even woke me up kicking in the middle of the night. So Lisa, do you know whether you are having a boy or a girl ? would you like to know ? Have you started picking out names ? Gone shopping.. ? Oh its all so exciting isnt it :)

I have a friend here from Aussie and she always calls my baby bubba too...very cute. :o) I'm having a little girl and I'm really like the name Rylee Michelle right now. I have started shopping and my Mom is telling me to stop. She wants me to hold off till I get back to Canada and we can shop together; this is her first granchild so she is very excited. I'm trying but it's hard sometimes. I agree, this is very very exciting. I don't think I've ever been this excited about anything in my life!

woops. soz, im actually 26 weeks pregnant today.. iv just been on other threads posting about when the third trimester starts,and for me thats next week at 27 weeks. hehe.. :)

 

Rachel.R - October 9

Rylee Michelle, thats really pretty.. ahh.. the shopping part, im having trouble with that too.. i cant stop seeing things i want to buy, mum has also told me to stop, and atleast wait til the baby shower, cause we have like 35 people coming, so she said, i will more than likely get everything else i need there. This is also my mums first grandchild,and my boyfriends parents first grandchild, so she is going to be so spoilt. Nathan and i are thinking of the Name Ashley, but we abit stuck on the middle name. Yeah. have you noticed also, an increase in apet_te. im starving. lol. like all the time. i had breakfast at 9:30 and its just after 12pm, and im hungry again. I think bubba has also worn herself out, cause she has slowed down the kicking. :) So how old are you if you dont mind me asking.

I eat like the hobbits on Lord of the Rings. I have 1st breakfast, 2nd Breakfast, 11's eze, Lunch, Afternoon Tea, Dinner and Supper! Haha! I hear yah on that one...I'm 28, going to be 29 this December. What about you?

 

Rachel. R - October 9

Im 21, and my boyfriend is 20 in 3 weeks, were pretty young, but we have alot of emotional support from both our parents and my very large family.

You know what, as long as this baby is conceived in love it does not matter what age you are, I don't think. I know lots of girls who had babies early and they don't regret it at all. My parents and my brother and cousins are really excited and happy for me and that's all that matters to me.

baby kicking....the one and only thing I miss about being pregnant

happy for you, that is cool, i'm 25 weeks now, and i feel kicking, punching, rolling around and just recently hiccups...so just think you have all that to look forward to!! i've been feeling it for almost 8 weeks now and i get just as excited as i did in the beginning...oh and if you think its cool to feel it, wait until you can actually see your tummy move, that is the coolest!!

Does your stomach actually move and change shape?

 

Rachel.R - October 10

Yeah.. my tummy moves.. my boyfriend lyes in bed with me, and just watches it.. and when she hasnt moved for a while.. he will give her a little nudge, and she starts going again. yeah. my stomach rises when she kicks.. you can see everything. its so amazing. weve been trying to get a little movie of it on the digital camera, but as soon as we bring it out. she doesnt want to move, so if i happen to catch a moment where you can see my stomach actually move, i will put it on the net, so you can have a watch of it. its so amazing :)

That would be great to see. This being pregnant is pretty great...I can't wait to meet my little girl
