My sister describes her experience with feeling the baby’s first kicks. When did you first feel the baby move? How would you describe the feeling?
First Kicks!I finally am able to distinguish between our baby boy’s kicks and stomach rumblings (aka gas!). I was wondering when I would be able to start feeling my baby’s kicks since most people start to feel them around 18-20 weeks, I am almost 20. Another mommy on a pregnancy board, which I spend way too much time reading everyday, suggested laying on your back and putting a cell phone or remote control just under your belly button and it will suddenly move from the baby’s kick. I thought there was no way I would see the kick before I felt it. Well it worked! Turns out what I thought was my stomach rumblings have been kicks this whole time. A first time mommy discovery! It is the wierdest, coolest, comforting feeling in the world!
