Stupid question

Probably but do you think it's dangerous to try to feel your baby by palpating your own baby bump? I think it should be ok but then I don't know maybe they are very fragile or I might scare baby?)) I am around 16 weeks

They're probably too small at 16 weeks, but you would hurt yourself long before you hurt your baby - they're protected by your skin and muscle and the uterus and sac and amniotic fluid. I'm 36+3 now and can sometimes irritate mine a bit by poking him back when he's poking me smile

Lol that is lovely experience I d love to feel the baby in some way. do you feel baby fighting and kicking back or try to move away?)

I used to poke mine all the time to make them move - especially DD1 when she got herself up by my ribs.

My mum and husband keep telling me off for liking the baby to try and get it to move grin
