Today DF bought me a Monster energy drink, I love them but barely drink caffiene since I am BFing my 8 month old. About an hour and a half later I was laying down BFing and felt a movement in my stomach. My son fell asleep so I layed there and continued to feel small movements. I then SAW a couple small movements. DF did not believe me at all since I haven't had a period and we have sex maybe 2-3x a MONTH with condoms. So I tested my theory a little over an hour ago and drank 2 cups of coffee... I just watched the right side of my stomach move up and down for 20 minutes in complete shock (big movements!)! I took 2 pregnancy tests in the past week or so (1 on Easter 1 the following Thursday) because I have been exhausted and my nipples were killing me while BFing, both negative, not even a faint +.. I also had one done at my OB on February 26th just because its a routine thing when you go in, also negative. So THREE tests were wrong?!?!
I know I must be 16+ weeks to be seeing and feeling movement... This is all so crazy!
How far along were you when you first felt/saw movement with your 2nd+ pregnancies?
Edit: NEGATIVE TEST (thank God!) But I am going to schedule a blood test since I have had no caffeine today and still feel and see movement.. I'm sure my body is just playing a cruel joke on me but I want to be 100% sure! I have definitely had the phantom kicks since my son was born but never have I seen my stomach repeatedly move, which is the part that really freaked me out! I will definitely update after the blood test though!
HUGE UPDATE: I was just laying down nursing my son and pressed down on my right side way down in my pelvis because it was hurting- SOMETHING PUSHED BACK HARD!!! Chills just went through my whole body! Who here is going to tell me that's a muscle spasm?!?!? I can also feel small movements right now a little higher up. I'm about to go force DF to press on my stomach and I am going to try and demand to have an ultrasound tomorrow!!!
Update 2 (4/9): I saw my midwife yesterday. She decided to skip the blood test and just do an ultrasound but I now have to wait for that to be scheduled! I have completely cut caffeine out of my diet and that has made no difference. She said the pain I am feeling is just above my ovary so its not a cyst but she doesn't know what it is. It is 100% that if I push down whenever I wake up in the middle of the night to nurse my son something will push back, it happens EVERY SINGLE TIME! During the day I will only feel a few pushes. IT MAKES NO SENSE!!!!! If it were food why am I getting my hand pushed back at 4-11 HOURS after I last ate?!?!?!?!? I'm getting frustrated with this because either I'm pregnant or I have some kind of parasite or SOMETHING in there! I am going to call the OBs office now to ask about the ultrasound and I will update again after they do one.
Edit: My midwife didn't do a pelvic because after my son was born I developed Vulvodynia (too many nerves grow while everything is healing) so an open speculum would have me screaming. I tried to get an IUD 3 months PP and they couldn't do it. Sex is also very painful, I only do it for my poor DF. I think she didn't use the doppler because no one believes me!!!! I wish I had thought of that! The office just told me the ultrasound request is pending and someone will eventually call me to set one up. If I had my own car I'd be at the ER right now but its not possible unfortunately.
Update 4/12: My ultrasound is next Friday at 11am. That will be a week and a half since I first went in! They are obviously not worried about it! I still feel pushes back. Lol, I say "muscle spasm!!" every time. It would just be too insane to be that pregnant and just finding out!
4/16: I have been really paying attention to my stomach in the past week and the movement is in almost the same spot on the right side every time. So I think it is either a muscle spasm that has been going on for a week and a half or something is wrong with an organ! I am still going to have the ultrasound done because they should be able to see if there is anything really abnormal in there.. I just think a baby would be moving all around instead of just one place.. My son was everywhere, lol! I will update this Friday.
ULTRASOUND!! No bay! Yay! Lol. She also said she saw nothing abnormal like parasites because I seriously asked! She did say part of my colon was very swollen and that is probably spasming and that is where my pain is coming from :-\ So, its better than an alien but not great! I havent had any other symptoms to point to my colon being the problem but I guess it is! Off to a different doctor I go to make sure everything is OK. At least my reproductive organs look good!
