Baby Bangs

So I felt the baby move last night. Yay! Actually, I felt it last week but wasn't sure if it was what I thought it was (you know how it is) and then last night confirmed my beliefs.'s completely different from my pregnancy with William. I distinctly remember the first time I felt William move in utero. I was sitting at my desk at work. I had just finished eating lunch. I was simultaneously working and chatting online with Brian; a daily occurrence for us. I felt muscle twitches in my lower abdomen and after it became more consistent I knew exactly what it was. Of course it was still another few weeks before Brian could feel anything on the outside.

This time, however, the movements are higher up; more toward my belly button. And instead of the little twitches I first felt with William, it feels as if the baby is slowly stretching its arms up and out. Last night I knew for sure I felt it move because it felt like it did a complete head to toe somersault. I've also noticed this baby doesn't move a whole lot. But that could be because (a) I'm running around with William insead of staying stationary at a desk all day and/or (b) I'm still pretty early on in my pregnancy to feel a whole lot just yet.

So what say you women of pregnancies? How did it feel when you first felt your baby move? And if you've been pregnant more than once, was it different?

  1. Well, since you asked! :) Yes, I felt it differently with all three of my babies. I carried the girls differently than my boy too. Oh and with my 4 month old I felt hiccups way more frequently than the other two, and after she was born she got them more too! (I found your blog through a comment you posted on the Faith & Family blog by the way. I'm a fellow Catholic mom twin-citier.) :)
