This is my second baby.... my son has just turned two. My son was 9lb 2oz.... I'm 5ft. I was huge (my bump) with him and got these symptoms but not till I was about 6-7 months and part of it was caused by iron levels! But I've had my iron checked and they are OK.
I found out I was pregnant at 6 weeks when my OH past comment on my belly! I done a digital test so I know my dates are right. But I have been so tired.... to the point I'm sleeping whenever I can, and feeling totally naccard and have noticed myself about to fall asleep at the wheel on a few occasions which has particularly scared me. I have constant restless legs. My bump is massive.... I look about 5 months. I know I'm not imagining it cos everyone is passing comment! I keep getting really breathless and cant lie at all on my back cos I cant get a breath. I am also a lot more hormonal.... crying at sad songs, my midwife appointment etc. I have also been feeling flutters and today I had my hand on my bump and felt a small kick against my hand (my hand moved). I know I shouldn't be getting these symptoms at this stage surely! Help! My breathing is particularly worrying because I am so early on I am only 9 weeks!
If you did a digital test at 6 weeks then it would have just said 3+ wouldn't it? There's no way you're feeling flutters and proper kicks at 9 weeks so it's likely you're further along than you think. You need to ask for a dating scan ASAP.
No it said 5-6 weeks. It was the clear blue digital one. It says how many weeks.... i.e 1-2, 3-4, 5-6. It tells you how many weeks it had been since you concieved, then there is a table to tell you how many weeks pregnant you are. I keep telling myself its my imagination or wind but its been going on too long now! And happening too many times for me to imagine it! And its happening when Im not even thinking about it! X Thanks, I see my MW on Tuesday, going to ask for a sooner scan! X
MW hasn't felt my stomach yet but I'm going to ask her to on Tuesday! There is twins in my family (my gran.. mothers mother had twins). My OH has 4 brothers and sisters who are twins, and one of them has had a set of twins! But I thought it needs to come from the mothers side! The thought has crossed my mind, and I did dream I was having twins.... but put it down to loadsa people saying I was during the day because of my big bump! X
Op you shouldn't really be able to feel baby kick from the outside just yet so (as pp said) could be wind or your dates are out. What were your last periods like? Could they have been 'false' bleeds? Twins normally run maternally but you still shouldn't be feeling kicks now.
