    I'm actually enjoying and love looking down and seeing my stomach jump. My daughter felt her kick the other day and she was SO happy, it was the funniest thing. But when I bragged about it, I got a lot of "WELL you better enjoy it now because its gonna get worse" "its gonna be uncomfortable" "yada yada yada" thanks a lot Pessimists =)

    Do you ladies feel kicks and punches on a regular? And are they uncomfortable for you yet?

    I am only 18 weeks but for the past 2 maybe 2 1/2 weeks I have been feeling movement and regularly. The past few days has been the most I have felt and has been fairly consistent. It's so cute and kind of funny becausing knowing how tiny the little bean is and feeling all of this movement makes me smile. I can't wait til my other children can feel it too!!! I bet your daughters reaction was priceless!! Enjoy those movements it always let me know that lil one was ok in there.

    My baby's punches and kicks already hurt. I'm 27 weeks and surprised at how strong she is already. I thought my son was bad about abusing my internal organs but she is way worse. She has this habit of kicking my cervix and bladder as hard as she can. Literally makes my crotch sore all day! I kinda wish she would move up a little bit. : ) But it is nice to know she's doing ok and it's fun to watch my belly move. I can even feel body parts now jutting out now depending on how she's laying.

    I started feeling this LO's kicks/punches at 16 weeks and they have since gotten very strong! He is constantly hurting my tummy and I don't even want to go into how much my cervix/bladder hurt. They get beat all day long!

    I had low fluid with my previous pregnancy and let me tell you, low fluid = less cushion and MAN did those kicks HURT like heck.

    LOL! It's so much fun feeling them move around in there! I'm in my 25th week, my little guy is still in a breech position so I get a lot of lower belly punches...nothing hurts though, just feels funny!

    I'll be 27 weeks tomorrow & this little thumper has been moving & shaking since I was 13 weeks. I love the kicks, I really do. But sometimes it's obnoxious! I've woken up a few times because s/he's moving around so much.

    Uncomfortable is probably a good word for it at times (like when there's a foot in your rib cage, or worse - feels like it's in your "hoo-hoo"), but most of the time it's fine. It's just such an odd sensation when you're busy or out & your stomach seems to have a mind of it's own. Still enjoyable, though. There's nothing like baby kicks.

    My two daughters (4 & 5) felt baby Jacob kick this past week - They got so excited, especially after they came to the ultrasound with my and my hubby and saw the baby in my tummy. My Hubby was talking to him the other night and when he was quiet Jacob would kick until daddy started talking again - so sweet!!!

    The kickes and punches are all the time but they are not uncomfortable yet!!
