Baby Likes to Move It, Move It


There’s a new development in my baby’s growth this week – I can see her (or his!) squirmy movements from the outside.

I was flying back from a work trip yesterday and felt the baby kick. I looked down and then… I saw the baby kick again! It was incredible.

My baby’s new movement ‘trick’ got me wondering – when did you all first feel different types of movement?

I first felt flutters at Week 15 – 16. It felt like a little goldfish swimming around in my belly. And then, around Week 18, I started to feel my first real thumps and bumps.

My husband could first feel light bumps every now and then when I was Week 19 or so, and by Week 21, he could feel them every night. Now, it’s Week 25, and I can see the movement on the outside. Pretty cool! It’s fun to know the baby is really getting bigger and stronger with every passing week.
