    I think I can speak for all us girls here when I say that regardless of the reassurance provided to us during pregnancy, there is always that fear lingering of a loss. I have had the worst anxiety about it since the m/c in april. I am 17w2d and for the last 3 days I have been feeling my baby move. The first time I knew for sure it was baby, I bawled! Now, DH has been able to feel it and it is a huge relief. I used to only feel this way when I was getting an u/s. With the baby moving and being able to really feel it just reassures me it is doing well and thriving.

    Anyone else felt their LO move yet? When did you first feel it moving?

    Oh I can't wait for that! I'm 10w3d today so I just keep thinking ok I'll probably feel movement by Christmas. With DS I think I was around 17-18 weeks when I first realized what it was.

    I'm so glad you get to have that sort of constant reassurance from here on out!

    Same here. I was a lil over 16 weeks and with my sister in the car. I kept telling her, I feel a thumping under my seat belt. She was the one who told me it was hiccups from the baby. I would have never guessed. But with this one, it got hiccups this afternoon and it I knew it right off the bat.
