    I haven't felt any "movement" either - sometimes I think I feel something but it happens so fast and then its gone. Don't feel bad - I want to feel my girl too - all in due time I guess!

      I wish I remember when I started to feel movement, this is why I think everyone should write this stuff down, I did not start writing it down till 26 weeks.

      Anyway, for me it felt like gas or flutters, but they were also very fast and did not happen that much. Then it started to feel a lot like popping, I have read that they liken it to popcorn popping, and that was pretty crazy and it happened more frequently than the flutters. That happened for a while before it turned into actual kicks.

      I would not worry that you can't feel it yet, you are still early on and it is different for everyone. Also, it all depends on the position the baby is in, if they are far away from your "walls" then you will not feel them moving around.

      Martha, the worrying never stops, once you feel movement you will freak out when you don't feel it. I don't feel a lot anymore because Ainsleigh is too big now and she is settled in my pelvis-also she is facing towards my back so I only feel her when she shifts her booty a little bit, she is sitting in an L shaped so she doesn't even kick me...I actually went to the doc a while back freaked out because I didn't feel her, but apparently its kinda normal towards the end.

        i had pitocin, but they also started the epidural at the same time - so i didn't feel anything afterwards. maybe the same can be done for you!

        it is different for everyone! and when i had an u/s at 18 weeks, i hadn't felt anything yet. the doc. said that becuase of the way my placenta was positioned, that i might not for a few more weeks. i guess where it was was muffling the movement.

          So, today I totally freaked out cause my colostrum came in. I don't remember it happening so early last time. It wasn't much, but I'm still hoping they don't get leaky anytime soon.

          Karma, Mine came in super early too, I have been wearing pads since February.
          Lately I can see it leaking so I think I will be good on the milk production end.

            Why have I never heard of this colostrum word before? I figured it out, but here I am trying to educate myself since I have never been pregnant before and yet I had never known the actual name of this. Sheesh!


            I am so hungry! I have hypothyroidism and have to take my synthroid pill in the morning an hour before I eat....problem is, I wake up starving now.

            I usually just take it when I wake up between 3-5 to tinkle and then fall right to sleep so that when I wake up in the morning I can eat....I didn't wake up to tinkle until 5:45 and never went back to sleep.

            Why did I just share that? Random.

            I wake up starving too Martha.
            Colustrom is the initial stuff that comes out of your boobs before you have milk, most people don't get it until the baby is born, but some of us lucky girls leak before baby is born.

              LOL Christine, so after you finally give birth I bet you are going to think long and hard before you try for a second child. You poor thing, everything that can happen in a pregnancy you have had. I swear you are a strong women.

                My supply has been great so far - but this is when it peaks, so I am pumping my little heart out! In fact, I have been producing so much, the hospital staff actually told me to stop bringing it in - I was taking up too much of their freezer space! And we just paid about $400 to ship my supply back to MN. Ouch.

                SO glad I didn't have to deal with this before she was born - I'd have gone insane! I can't go anywhere now w/o pads these days, it's a mess! Bless your heart, Christine, for putting up with it for so long.
