how often did you feel your baby move at 17 and a half weeks? i think i keep feeling her move so much within these past few hours...once i know for sure i felt a tiny thump, the others are just flutters. is that possible though? it feels like an awful lot already and i know some people dont even feel the baby yet. is it just in my mind?

  • It is not just in your head. I am 20 weeks and felt baby move at 17.5 weeks just like you did. Sure then I realized that some of the baby's movements ended up being gas most I was positive were my baby. It stayed that way until just this week, I am at the end of 20 weeks now and there is no doubt in my mind about movement.

    Congrats! You feel baby!

  • felt my first move at 17 weeks (carried high and in front)... felt my 2nd move at 13 weeks (carried low and in front)... you may have eaten something very sugary or caffiene that made the little one go haywire! i know mine both liked doing backflips after i drank juice. enjoy feeling it, and congrats
