Hi - i'm nearly 9 weeks pregnant with number 2 and today i swear i've felt butterfly like sensations on one side of my stomach (quite high up) - is this normal or am i just going mad?! X

they say that if you know what to look out for you can feel your baby earlier the second time around

Me 2, im sure i felt baby move at 10 weeks, im 14 weeks and even dh has felt movement when i was led against him.

Mandymoo · 23/09/2005 17:09

thanks guys - 9 weeks just seems so early and its quite high up - it really does feel like a flutterly sensation!

i had a flutter at 9 wks with ds, baby no.2 too. very reassuring for me as between dd and ds had 2 miscarriages.

Mandymoo · 23/09/2005 17:12

so it is normal and nothing to worry about then? (because i am worrying about everthing atm!!)

its normal and i would say a good sign!

Hi mandy, You could well have felt them but i doubt they would have been high up as baby will still be very low down by your pubic bone at the stage of pregnancy, I am pregnant with my 2nd baby and i did feel things earlier this time but not till about 16-17 weeks

Mandymoo · 23/09/2005 17:14

yippee!! Thank you! - is it "worrying" that im only 9 weeks pregnant but am gonna have to start wearing maternity clothes soon cos my bump is so big?!

MM, don't worry. I'm on 2nd preg and was in maternity jeans at 6 weeks - couldn't bear anything tight round my middle.

Mandymoo · 23/09/2005 19:43

I'm worried now about these flutters!!!!

OP posts:
BunnyBoo · 23/09/2005 19:45

Oh honestly don't worry maybe it is bubbles ??

BunnyBoo · 23/09/2005 19:45

How high do you mean?

Mandymoo · 23/09/2005 21:09

Mandymoo · 23/09/2005 21:11

I have had that feeling all weekend I know its odd but do you think your clothes are a bit tight or uncomfortable and thats why you get the sensation

Toothache · 26/09/2005 09:24

Mandymoo - Its bloody wind woman!!!!!! Thats why its moving up..... rather that than it moving down eh??

Enid · 26/09/2005 09:27

I get this even when I am NOT pg - it is muscle spasms - probably due to strain on them as everything shifts around - sorry not wind or baby unfortuantely!

Toothache · 26/09/2005 09:28

runs back in<

Could be wind though....

dashes out

Enid · 26/09/2005 09:30

its not wind! I asked my gp about it (kept getting it when not pg and feels just like a baby moving around)

believe me I know what wind feels like (sad)

Toothache · 26/09/2005 09:32

Maybe not windy bubbles in your case.... but in MM's case it could be.

runs away from pregnant hormonal women

Enid · 26/09/2005 09:32

yes true

Enid · 26/09/2005 09:32

now piss off

Toothache · 26/09/2005 09:33

Should read:

runs away from pregnant, hormonal, farting women
