  • Wow that is weird, but when she starts to run out of room in your tummy you're definitely are though

  • Its really not that weird, its more than likely that little Ms. Aria is not quite big enough just yet to put enough pressure on both the uterine and abdominal wall. When that happens you'll start to actually start feeling her dancing around in you. For now, enjoy the viewing show and soon enough you'll get to feel the amazing sensation it is to feel your child moving within you :). Good luck!

  • If you still have your ultrasound, ask them if you have an anterior placenta. While I could feel my 1st by then even so, I did not feel much before 20 weeks, and it was because the placenta was between her and all my nerves.

    It did get better! And near the end, I didn't have all the pain others did from the strong movements. Maybe that's why? So you may get a benefit later.

  • No especially if this is your first. I am surprised you already know you're having a girl. I hope I get my results that fast with my second pregnancy!

  • Not weird, she may not be big enough for you to feel her, but strong enough to move your phone. I really didnt feel Kara untill week 24-25
