Where were you when you felt your baby kick for the first time?

Well I didn't know I was pregnant. But I vividly remember when my son kicked me for the first time. I was watching Sweeney Todd and I felt a jump in my tummy. I thought "Omg I have some bad gas." so I asked my grandma for a beano. "Gran I have some bad gas, it feels like a bug jumping around inside me." LOL.

  • mine was just a few weeks ago, i was trying to usual. i was staying over at my friend mike's house and his dog had his head on my stomach when it happened, the dog turned his head all sideways with that confused dog look. lol. mike then looked all confused too, but i just smiled and said it was the baby, i was excited, until in continued through the whole night! now it never fails, whether just trying to sleep or relax the baby kicks, and its gotten more intense since then so it actually makes me jump sometimes!

  • LOOOL! Marlye thats funny. I just hope you wont name your child beano ;) Great story. :)

    I cant really remember where i have been when my daughter kicked me for the first time, because it took me a few kicks from her to realize that this is actually her kicking me. But the first time when i really knew it was her, I was laying in my bed, it was late night and i couldnt sleep.

    I think thats one of the most amzing feelings in the world.

  • I was lying on the couch, getting ready to take a nap, and it felt like a butterfly was fluttering around in my belly! I'll never forget it (and that was 7 years ago).

  • I was leaning up again a wall in front of the desk. I thought the desk kicked me! Then, I realized what happened. So naive the first time around.

  • I was in the car making a left turn off the Dulles Toll Road onto Fairfax County Parkway. I thought the car did something funny, and then later realized what it was!
