I remember myself pregnant. And I see myself this way: pensive, happy, my eyes are turned inward, and around me it’s like an invisible small world — my and my unborn child. For now I only know what he, my child, is. And every day I wait: when will he give to know about himself? Sometimes it seems to me that the child moves. But it only seems. Early. When this happens, it will be impossible to confuse with anything.
I sit in a chair resting. And here it is – a stir. At the very bottom of the abdomen. For some reason, I tickled. And funny. Maybe because today is April Fool’s Day? Daughter began to move at exactly 16 weeks, April 1st. Although, of course, she moved even earlier, just before that I did not feel.
Husband enviable. He, too, is trying to feel his baby moving. It attaches to the stomach that arm, then ear. But in vain. For now, this hello is only for me.
In the second pregnancy, the baby began to move a little earlier – at 14 weeks. I just sat quietly, relaxed. And her husband, even though he already knew that it was useless, was also trying to probe these shocks.
Well, when the child began to move. Now you can talk with him and ask him: How are you there? If I suddenly began to worry, I pressed on the stomach and waited for an answer. I moved, so everything is in order.
The movements of my children in both pregnancies developed: they became more active, stronger. Closer to the birth, my daughter completely swallowed my left side. I had to keep my hand on my side and restrain the strength of her kicks. The son was a little lazier, he didn’t kick very hard, but in the evenings he arranged for the whole family to have fun. We watched as he rolled from one side of the abdomen to the other (probably just pushed by different parts of the body). From this, on my stomach here and there bumps grew. And closer to the birth, in the evenings, he would not let me sleep. I moved so much that I was worried: Is everything normal with him?
How to read a stir?
By the way the child moves, you can determine his condition. There are such movements when the mother is concerned.
one. Very active movements suggest that the child does not have enough oxygen. I tried to walk a lot and move more so that the child did not have oxygen starvation. He fumbled heavily just before the birth. Probably trained before the exit))
2. Sluggish, very rare movements. We had this after cordocentesis. I was very worried then that the little one was hardly moving at all. It is good that I knew all the nuances associated with this procedure. After all, the child takes blood for analysis, and because of this, his blood pressure decreases. Probably, during this period the son slept a lot.
*They say that the date of birth can be counted from the first stirring. It is necessary to count on the calendar plus 20 weeks. But I think you should not take these calculations seriously. The movements are felt by different women at very different times, with a difference of as much as 1.5 months.
*Feel the first movement of women allows (or does not allow) their physique. If the future mother is skinny, she can feel the baby’s jolts earlier, if the subcutaneous fat layer is decent – later. Again, I do not know, right? It is clear that dad will have to wait longer to feel the child. But we feel the child from the inside. So what difference does a fat woman or thin?
Do you remember how your child first moved?
