isn't feeling the baby move the COOLEST thing?

I've been feeling him off and on for at least a couple of weeks now, but today he REALLY picked up the pace and he is flipping all over like a little fish! It's so weird, and so exciting, and so miraculous!

    Very much so. I love to lay in bed at night and feel him wiggling around! I went and saw the Beach Boys perform a few weeks ago and during their concert, he was JAMMING out!!

    Ever since the sports thread wars I have sensed a special connection between [edit] & Wile. Like the connection oil has to water. I almost can't speak of it. Wait....my eyes are misting. ~asq

    oh I know it's so cool. I remember with max I was laying on the couch after work one night and had the remote on my belly when all the sudden he gave me a good kick hard enough to knock the remote onto the floor. The only time I really don't like to feel him move is when I have to pee or when he decided that my bladder would make the perfect soccer ball and then it's like oh I have to pee,no I'm ok no I have to pee. That's great fun :lol:

    Yes! That is my favorite part of being pregnant. My little guy has just started going nuts in there the last couple of days. So fun!

    I'm always fascinated by watching my belly jump and move. Especially if I have a tight shirt on, when he starts moving around, I can see my stomach roll around!

    Some nights he'll roll around so much - it remind me of when your stomach flips on a roller coaster or something. That's what you miss most after you have the baby. Not feeling it move around inside you anymore.

    Awwwww...I remember that vividly. I missed the feeling of baby movement profoundly each time after I delivered.

    Funny, I still feel the sensation sometimes, and I haven't had a baby in 6 years. If I have a gas bubble, it will feel just like it. My mother says she still feels it sometimes too...and her last baby is 40!

    I also still get a letdown sensation in my breasts when I hear a baby cry. That tingle...good thing nothing really comes out!

    It feels like a little fish jumping around in there, and then I get the sensation my stomach gets in an elevator that drops suddenly. Baby LOVES jazz trumpet and reacts to that! So we have the next Wynton Marsalis in here perhaps!

    The books and websites and my doctor all kept saying I would feel fluttering first, but I never felt that.

    So you're having a boy, or is it just a hunch?

    Heee! I got one of my first definitive thumps while listening to Glen Miller (who I think is pretty square). I can't tell if the baby liked it or wanted me to listen to something else! I haven't gotten a reaction to my cello playing yet, though. I'm waiting! :D

    Yes I'm not crazy. I felt it off and on after I had Max to. I was talking to a friend of mine who also felt them. We related it to people getting their leg cut off but can still feel it.

    How exciting, Amneris! By the way, you are calling baby "he"--have you found out the sex?

    Oh, he has also reacted to my singing. So far he likes La Boheme and Swing Low Sweet Chariot.

    Iris and Sigi, we're not finding out the gender so we don't know anything - I guess I just feel he is a boy and I keep saying "he" even when I don't mean to - and now my husband is saying "he" too. It's kind of weird that I feel that way - I always wanted a girl first, but now I can't even imagine that I have one (who knows, maybe I do.)

    I always felt those phantom baby movements well after baby was born. It's like little muscles twitches or something. Reminds me of those first movements - certainly not the ones closer to delivery!

    We did the "he" thing too only to discover at 21 wks "he" was a SHE!

    Bets loved Bobby McFerrin & the Nutcracker. To this day she goes mental whenever we play it.

    I loved feeling her move, especially at the end when she'd roll over or move her feet/hands & you could see them moving under my skin. It was the most amazing sensation!

    I do have to say, that I hate that feeling when they're kicking around your organs inside. It's almost a sick to your stomach, yuck feeling. Then they position themselves weird and it's totally uncomfortable.

    Right now I happen to get a foot or something that jabs into my side when I try to sleep.

    Just wanted to point out that it's not always that miracle of life, blissfull feeling. :lol:

    Oh I completely understand the only thing this one has done is beat the crap (or pee rather :wink: ) out of my bladder it like I have to be no I don't yes I do no I don't for like 20 minutes. However with Max there was like a week where I had a foot in my ribs I would sit there and push on it to try to get him to move but it would always go right back to the same spot, it hurt so bad I was so happy when he finally moved it

    This one is doing the SAME THING. He is totally sitting on my bladder, and it's killing me. The other day at the store I instantly stopped walking b/c it was painful, and I thought I was going to pee right there. :lol:

    B did the same thing w/ the one foot in the rib thing. I have such a short midsection, that my babies always sit diagnally. B would always have a foot up in my rib, and her head would dig into one of my hips. It was horrible.

    This one is sitting much differently, but he gets himself in the weirdest, most uncomfortable positions.

    I don't remember at what point I felt like this in my first pregnancy, but I just keep saying - for still having 2 and 1/2 months left, I am amazingly uncomfortable. :evil:

    Anna used to stretch - her arms straight up and her legs straight down. Ouch! :lol: It was so cute after she was born - she would do the same stretch and get the cutest little expression on her face. I love my baby.

    When I was pregnant, he used to get the hiccups all the time. That is a funny sensation!
