I feel the odd poke/prod/kick but i also feel what feels like the whole baby doing a slow somersault once in a while. I feel it esp against the waistband of my trousers. Did anyone else experience this? Does it mean DC feels my waistband is too tight?

Thats normal, you get big movements at the beginning. Later on when the baby gets bigger and has less space they wont be able to do such big movements.

Thanks MMM so I don't need to worry about the type of trousers I'm wearing.. I'd been thinking the waistband was upseting DC
Oh, the paranoia of beng pg grin

On the other hand - have you tried on any maternity trousers? So comfortable with the elasticated waistbands grinblushgrin

But the one i have on IS a pair of maternity trousers. I must admit, its still rather snug though. It wasn't at the start but now it is. hmm
I have to keep pulling the waistband up or pushing it down as it gets uncomfortable. I think its off to the shops with me to buy another pair.
