Baby movements
I just turned 16 wks, and every once in a while I will feel little tiny fluttery feelings in my belly. Which I dunno is just gas, or the baby. Just wondering what position do you feel baby's movements better? Laying down? Standing?

[FONT="Century Gothic"][COLOR="RoyalBlue"]what works best for me is to drink a very cold glass of water then lay down on my left side for 15 minutes... this is when i feel my little girl the most.[/COLOR][/FONT]

Re: Baby movements
At about 17 weeks I had the same exact experience. I wasn't sure if it was the baby or not, but I discovered if I squat and then lay down quickly on my back I feel the baby and I'm sure it's the baby now. It doesn't happen every time I do it, but it's happened a few times now.
Isn't it so exciting to feel the baby move?!! :D

Re: Baby movements
It's totally crazy! It's so amazing to think that there is a little angel in there. Sometimes when I lose sight of the fact that there is a little being in there (only b/c it is early for me to feel or "see" the pg), I feel a little flutter and it just boggles my mind every single time! Pregnancy truly is one of god's greatest gifts!

Re: Baby movements
I felt the same thing a little flutter. I knew after a while it was the baby and not gas. Anyway I felt the baby better when i lied down and closed my eyes and really tried to relax and concentrate on my belly.

Re: Baby movements
Earlier on I always felt her more when laying on my back. Now I notice after eating or drinking something cold. Or drinking juice because of the sugar, give the baby a quick burst of nrg lol.

Re: Baby movements
I'm almost 17 weeks and still haven't felt a thing. Now I'm kinda worried. :(
