    Strong kicks at 19 weeks

    i was curious if i was alone. this is my second pregnancy and already at 19 weeks 3 days i can lay down or lean back and press my tummy lightly and get good thumping kicks or rolls from my little one. i mean that i can have me or someone else feel them already by touching me. it boggles me cus my daughter wasnt this strong til like 25-30 weeks, cus only i felt her til then. im also kinda worried because at term my daughter nearly broke a few of my ribs she was so strong. if this ones already as strong as she was at a much older age i feel like im in a pickle already lol!

    Yes!! I am 20 weeks, first pregnancy, and have been feeling strong kicks since about 19 weeks. Both my mother and DH have been able to feel the baby kick very strong.

    glad im not alone! lol i was starting to wonder if my baby was growing at lightning speed or if i had a twin hiding behind on the first ultrasound. ive been feeling completely different in this pregnancy and it makes me worry. ive gotten much bigger faster. Movement sooner and harder. Lack of most any appetite at all, when the first time around i was munching fruits and veggies all the time! my husband worries im not eating enough and ive been slimming down, but baby belly weights taking its place, so im not loosing weight. i dono what to do, i hate forcing myself to eat every day :( but its always worth it! Cant wait til the 5th to see how much the baby has grown.
    Team yellow/green til July 5th! cant wait ^_^
