My unborn baby is so cheeky already!

I'm 26 weeks and my unborn dd makes me really laugh. She won't let anyone else feel her move. The minute anyone else puts their hands on my belly she goes completely still and will not move again until they have stopped touching me, no matter how long we wait.

I have even had to chase her around my belly because I touch one part and she will kick the other side, and keep moving so I can't feel her.

I can also clearly see her jerking about from the outside now, my whole belly twitches. However, the minute I say 'DH quick, look!' she stops. Even if I say nothing and just grab him and point, she stops!! I'm starting to look like a complete nut, but its so funny!

Anyone else got a funny unborn baby like me?

hmm to you too...? Any particular reason for your hmm?

greenj1 Tue 09-Jul-13 17:41:05

Lol! Mines the same! I did notice today though that he really wiggles like crazy when my mum speaks to me smile

PumpkinPie2013 Tue 09-Jul-13 17:41:27

Me! I'm only 20 weeks but can feel strong kicks already and see them outside smile

However every time I get hubby to feel/watch baby stops moving!!

Got my 20 week scan tomorrow so he will see him/her then smile x

yes. your post was the reason for it.

I get that it's exciting having a baby. but your baby isn't cheeky. nor is she 'good' or 'naughty' or playing any sort of game. stop attributing behaviours to a baby that is incapable of them.

Mine really starts going every time I go out in the car. Literally the minute the engine starts she starts kicking really hard! DH loves that because he's car mad, and has decided she must be the same!

I do feel a bit silly though the amount of times iv grabbed DH to get him to fee/lookl and suddenly she's still as anything!

Omg get a grip imnot!!! The way you are talking maybe u r 14....

HeffalumpTheFlump Tue 09-Jul-13 17:47:05

Imnotbloody14 - what the hell is your problem? It's a light hearted post and I haven't said anything about her being good or naughty.

ImNotBloody14 Tue 09-Jul-13 17:47:29

I think it's more immature to use txt spk and talk about unborn children being cheeky.

ImNotBloody14 Tue 09-Jul-13 17:48:41

I've told you in my post why I gave you the hmm. it's up there ^^. unborn babies aren't cheeky. to say they are is just weird.

PumpkinPie2013 Tue 09-Jul-13 17:50:25

Blimey ImNot did you get up on the wrong side of the bed grin x

I'm not.. You've had a hell of a lot of support and virtual friendship on your post in relationships, I think Heffa is probably just wanting to share her excitement with people in the same way that you did there. I don't understand your problem with that. Heffa, it's lovely to see how you're bonding so well with your baby already! It's an exciting time and you can't help but wonder about your baby's personality even before they're born. There's nothing wrong with that!

greenj1 Tue 09-Jul-13 17:51:49

Oh get of your highhorse, its lighthearted fun! Go somewhere else with your miserable opinion

HeffalumpTheFlump Tue 09-Jul-13 17:53:52

I'm really not sure why my post upset you quite so much? confused

mynameisslimshady Tue 09-Jul-13 17:54:24

I attributed allsorts to my dc when I was pregnant with them, its a lovely thing to do and really makes you feel like you know your baby even before they are born, not weird at all. Keep on enjoying your pregnany op, and your cheeky baby grin

ImNotBloody14 Tue 09-Jul-13 17:54:45

ok i'll leave all you OMGing lollers to your hubbys and your cheeky foetuses.

Gingerandlemon Tue 09-Jul-13 17:55:14

Goodness, who knew this was such a controversial subject, huh, OP? I'm not sure what you think she meant, imnot but I don't think we really need to judge here do we? Pretty sure it was just a lighthearted post.

In other news, it's only in the past few weeks (I'm 33 weeks now) that I've managed to get my husband to get his hands on my belly at the right time to feel our little one's movements, and at this point he can pretty much see them from across the room! He reckons the baby is soothed by his warm hands, bless him.

HeffalumpTheFlump Tue 09-Jul-13 17:55:55

If you didn't like it for whatever reason you didn't need to post. I'm rather obviously not trying to attribute a certain behaviour to an unborn baby, it's just a funny set of events that has made me laugh. I really dont know why you have come on here to be so aggressive.

ImNotBloody14 Tue 09-Jul-13 17:55:58

upset? no

cogitosum Tue 09-Jul-13 17:57:32

Mine's still the same at nearly 40 weeks! Dh has felt him quite a lot but it does seem he moves constantly until someone wants to feel him and then nada!

Oh and I think it's a normal bonding process to attribute personality to an unborn child. I'm not sure why people would take umbrage at that. Miserable.

RememberingMyPFEs Tue 09-Jul-13 18:01:25

heffalump I was saying the same thing to DH last night. It's as if she hears what I'm saying and stops moving til we stop watching. She'll be class champion at sleeping lions or musical statues wink

imnot really, get the knot out of your panties and go off to play in AIBU if you need to piss on someone's fire... Like a PP said its good to bond with your bump, who made you Gina fucking Ford? hmm

Nice to know I'm not the only one to have this though!! My mum keeps asking if she can feel her yet and I keep telling her she's got no chance!! I said to DH it would be lovely if this continues after she's born. I get a funny picture of her having a good cry and us just touching her and she goes all quiet and still! grin
