Tomorrow is the beginning of week 21.
Yay! I love being able to feel their kicks, it is so exciting,
Yes, the first time I felt the rolling I thought something was wrong so I really paid attention. The best way I can describe it is for you to make a fist, put it on your belly with your folded up fingers touching your belly and slowly lift up your wrist. It feels like that just with a bit more force. LOL, I don't really know of that is Monkey rolling but every time it happens that's what I picture.
I started trying to hear the hb with a stethoscope weeks ago and have yet to hear it. In one of my books it says that even practiced OBs have trouble hearing the hb this way. I might try again, but like you I only hear my hb. Since mine is faint I imagine Monkey's hb would be difficult to hear anyway.
That's awesome that you are feeling movement!
Aww, poor DH.
DH is kind of bummed about it. He does like feeling the kicks, but they aren't very strong yet. When he feels something he asks me, "Was that it?" just about every time.
I hope your LO cooperates soon and DH gets to feel some kicking!
It is a strange sensation to feel the roll. It's pressure on one side that moves a little and then it's gone.
Yeah, my mom....plbbt! She has issues and that's too bad. I can't control what she says but I can control how I react.
I thought you'd understand what I was saying. I also start to worry when I don't feel any movement when I wake up and am so relieved when I do shortly after.
Your poor DH!
Yay for kick-kicks! They tickle me, which of course makes me LOL. DH has felt our LO kicking as well, but lately he seems to be playing with DH. He'll give a strong kick and I'll put DH's hands on my belly only for nothing to happen until DH decides he's waited long enough and removes his hands. Ha, ha. There was one kick last week that made my belly jump out. Pretty neat. I'm also starting to feel him roll, I think. I'm pretty luck though, the placenta is posterior so I get to feel a lot.
My mom made some grumpy comment that I wouldn't be smiling when LO starts hiccuping. Whatever. I won't let her rain on my parade. I'm enjoying every little kick, even the ones that make you think "oww, what are you doing in there?" KWIM?
Nicolle - That very well might be.
