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

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.

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

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.

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

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

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!

runs back in<

Could be wind though....

dashes out

Report
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)

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

runs away from pregnant hormonal women
