Hi im 9 weeks pregnant with my second LO and since tuesday ive been feeling my baby move! Im in total shock as first time round I didnt experience this until 16 weeks, is this normal or could my due date be wrong? aslo ive seemed to have grown a very large bump in the past week, I was putting it down to ibs bloating as ive been off food so its not that ive been pigging out, any advise would be brill xx

thank you everyone for all the lovely messages! yes I told my family staright away and have also told my friends and work mates as im soo big I cant hide it much longer! Im now coming up for 12 weeks and im the same size I was when 20 weeks with my daughter so that is kinda worrying me!

Whirlingout - they say it was possible I felt some movement but wouldnt have been proper kicks and the majority of what I can feel is prob my uterus making extra room since theres two in there, they both have their own seperate placenta and bag of fluid so I guess my body has aot to deal with smile xx

WOW great story and congratulations.

Wow congratulations

Red - is that why you felt movement? Or was it your body adjusting to the extra baby? Congratulations, by the way!

I think I've been feeling movement since 10 weeks but not sure if it was gas or all in my head or my dates are wrong. Got my dating scan on Monday so I guess I'll see....! Don't think it's likely I'll be having twins.

Red81 Fri 08-Mar-13 15:03:18

omg!!! 2 sets of twins! Thats amazing!! Ive been looking at loads of prams and the one im in love with is the compass twin its on amazon and ebay its made in germany but has fabulous reviews and the price is fantastic - 2 carry cots (side by side) , 2 push chair seats and 2 car seats all parent or forward facing it comes in 50 colours and is only £420 delivered!! so at the mo Im pretty sold on it x

I just read the while post and you sounded like I did when I was having my boys. The night before my scan I felt a flutter both sides of my stomach but didn't tell anyone incase they thought I was mad - I already had a set of 2 year old twins but yup it was another set.

ohmentalnessisme Fri 01-Mar-13 23:15:54

Wow congratulations! Fwiw I felt both my dcs move at around 11 weeks (singletons), everyone said I was imagining things hmm

My friend has a baby style city select (I think thats what its called) and she loves it! I had a little go with it and its lovely to push and I've seen her fold it in about 2 minutes!

Red81 Fri 01-Mar-13 22:48:47

tamster83 Fri 01-Mar-13 14:13:35

SCOTCHandWRY Thu 28-Feb-13 23:11:26

grin Fantastic news!

Red81 Thu 28-Feb-13 22:39:33

thanks so much!! Now my biggest worry is a pram, I hate double buggies with a passion!! and I was in love with my pram I used for DC1 which I planned on using again sad so now searching online and cant see anything I like, they either cost an absolute fortune or are really bulky and im not the best of drivers haha! Really fancied one were the babies will face me but everything seems to be forward facing!

LOL - How lovely. grin

SamsGoldilocks Thu 28-Feb-13 22:27:22

Wow! Congratulations.

Dillydollydaydream Thu 28-Feb-13 22:27:13

Eee. Double congratulations!

Red81 Thu 28-Feb-13 22:21:57

well everyone ive had a scan and my dates arent wrong, im 10 weeks pregnant with - TWINS!!!! Cant believe it , it was the last thing I was thinking off very excited and a little terrified but the shock is wearing off now xx

LadyAlex Tue 19-Feb-13 20:29:18

we conceived sometime just after 1st July (the day I had my implant out!) I had no bleed after so conception was very quick.
We went away in our caravan for August bank holiday and layed in bed I told my husband I could feel flutters.
They did bring our date forward at the 12w scan but only by 4 days.
Its our second child.
With DS1 it was much much later that I felt movement, although both times the first feelings were in exactly the same place!

FergusSingsTheBlues Tue 19-Feb-13 18:46:31

Good luck....i had my hopes raised, also by gp who thought fundus was higher than it was, but in the end it transpired i was back in the first trimester. So nice to chop off a month!

Red81 Tue 19-Feb-13 15:59:45

Im getting my scan on monday now, the more I think about it the more I do believe my dates are wrong, thanks everyone and ill let you know the outcome on monday.....................oooohhh very excited now! x

FoofFighter Sun 17-Feb-13 19:18:02

ahh ladies we are all lyi n g obviously then... silly old us eh??! hmm

Sunnysummer Sun 17-Feb-13 00:36:50

Very sceptical that it would be possible to feel a 9 week baby - at that point it is about the size and weight of a cashew nut, floating about in a fluid-filled and (relative-to-its-size) giant uterus, with minimal muscle development...

Would agree woth pps about waiting for the nec scan, but can also see why you'd want to get tested if you are certain you're feeling kicks!

Red81 Sat 16-Feb-13 21:25:29

oh I mustve picked up my mf wrong last time I spoke to her, I thought she said something about checking the scan? but yeah wanna get the dates confirm, especially if we have less time to agree on names haha! xx
