Twitchy Movements (16w5d)

Posted by auntiem10 on April 21, 2011

I believe I am feeling the first movements! On Sunday evening, I was lounging on the couch with my hubby when I felt a weird sensation. You know how it feels when you have an eye twitch? That is what I sensed in my belly. The feeling was very low on my abdomen, near my pubic bone. I wondered if it was Baby A, but I wasn’t sure if my mind was just playing tricks on me. I’ve felt this same feeling off and on all week, but the movement strengthened today and left little doubt in my mind. The twitching started this morning and is still occurring at nearly 6pm. Amazing! Today I also may have felt Baby B move a few times for the first time, but I’m not sure. That feeling is definitely not as strong at this point, which makes sense because B’s placenta is anterior.

I can’t believe Saturday will mark 17 weeks. That is practically the halfway point in a twin pregnancy! I feel so very grateful and amazed at our good fortune!

    The twitching is TOTALLY the babies!! That’s how it felt at first like a muscle twitch…so cool! And wow…17 weeks?! Time is flying for both of us!

    So exciting! How interesting to feel them separately – I never thought about that with twins! Enjoy feeling them, one of the best parts of pregnancy I thought.

    What an amazing feeling that must have been – to make the connection between the sensation and your dear, precious girls! Keep the comments coming…I’m taking notes!
