View Full Version : When do you notice your baby moving??
I am starting to notice a 'trend' of movement with my twins (20 wks). When I'm starting to get hungry and then when I'm eating I notice lots of movement.
However, when I asked my OB if the Bams are aware of my hunger, he said no.He also said they can't feel the warmth or light of me sitting in the sun with my belly exposed.
So.....have you noticed a 'specific' time or reason for when you can feel your baby move or is it really just all in my head!
ps Chocolate and lemonade seems to get them moving big time!
mine always seemed to go crazy when i went to bed:rolleyes:
Mine definately gets going when I'm sitting down leaning more forward, or when I put my jeans on!
Yeah, when i'm going to bed - bubs will kick me which is always great when youre trying to sleep.
Also anything cold or sweet moves bubs.
I think when youre in the 3rd trimester bubs can feel warmth, and detect changes in light.... you'd have to google that or ask your OB at what stage it happens.
I feel mine most when I'm winding down, arvo/evenings/bed time...
Just preparing me for sleep deprivation :laughing:
when i get in the shower or bath bub moves alot.. i'm not sure if it's the noise or warmth of the water she is responding to. when i goto bed and lay on my side she starts having a party lol, i sometimes think it's because i'm squashing her.
i feel mine most when i go to bed and when in the shower. just little wee kicks not a lot which i et worried about sometimes but i have a doppler here and if it gets to much to worry i check which is good. but its the same as it was with my 8 month old so it will get more soon i am sure
Drinking a cold drink always did the trick with DS :) But he was most active at night and still is after birth :(
If I lay on my back she tends to go crazy, but mostly she'll have 2-3 almost 24 hour a day movement days, then 2-3 without much movement, but enough not to scare me :D
My bub tends to move more in the afternoon when I get home from work. I do feel her sometimes during the day, but I think I'm usually too busy to notice a lot of the time. Otherwise I find after dinner & when I'm laying around doing nothing or in bed (especially when I lay on my back like PP said) are when she really goes crazy. My Obs told me that when your blood glucose level increases, bubs does too, so you will find they move around a lot more after you eat & drink :).
My bump goes mad when we smell pizza!!!!!!
I used to feel my baby move when I drank something cold. Sometimes I used to drink something cold if I hadn't felt him move in a while and wanted to reassure myself he was ok. DP said it was mean, like I was tipping cold water on his head or something. :)

My little man goes wild every day at around 10am-11am. I have no idea what it is about that time! I wonder if he will be unsettled around that time when he comes out :)
Great question!! But I'd actually love to know what I should be feeling - am just over 18 weeks, and have been told to expect movement any time now, just don't know what it should feel like...

The movements start first like you have a bubble of gas (wind) in your abdomen :) From there on it could be gentle rolls to more noticeable kicks. I didn't feel my bub move until I was exactly 20 weeks on the dot :) It takes longer to feel movement when it's your first one.
At the hospital they had me on a CTG machine at 22 weeks and made me drink a whole bottle of water to make him move and it worked. Than the last 2 weeks I was admitted and constantly monitored on the CTG. They gave me cups of water with icecubes to get him to move and it worked every time (twice a day) without fail lol. He must've hated the feeling of cold water on his bum :D
I have definately noticed a similar pattern of movement as you OP, probably since around 25ish weeks (but I only have one bub to feel!).
Bub moves more when I am hungry and after I have eaten. S/he seems to be very sensitive to my blood sugars (I'm diabetic) and will move alot when they are getting too low or high (it's very reliable, to the point where bub has 'told' me I'm having a hypo on more than one occasion!).
Pfft to the Ob who says that bub doesn't respond!
