I know how ridiculous this must sound to anyone who has experienced or read about feeling your baby move, but I truly believe I felt movement last night. I was only 12 weeks 2 days, and they say first time moms don’t feel it until 16 weeks at the earliest. Apparently most early movement is mistaken for gas bubbles, and/or actual gas bubbles are often mistaken for early movement. But I am very familiar with the sensations of gas. I don’t digest dairy well.
I was laying in bed at night, on my side, and I felt a faint little tapping coming from right where the midwife said my uterus was. It wasn’t rhythmic, but it did continue for a few minutes. It really felt like something in there was shifting around – although for me to feel it it must have been doing more than a little shifting. Technically it should be kicking up a storm in there at this stage with full mobility in its arms and legs.
Maybe I’m wrong, but I choose to believe that I felt little bug moving for the first time this week.
