Is it the baby?

I am 17+1 pregnant with my first. I'm thin. For the last week, I have felt random pokes (not every day) low in my uterus. I had an ultrasound yesterday and baby was waving at me and wiggling its legs. Do you think it's the baby or am I wishful thinking.

  • It could be. How far along are you? I was tiny with my first and I felt movement very early.

  • It could be... I started feeling my baby at about 16 weeks. People say i am crazy but i know what i felt. I thought it was gas at first until the kicks got stronger and i realized what i was really feeling. It is such a neat experience!
