DIF­FER­ENT BA­BIES, DIF­FER­ENT EX­PE­RI­ENCES

Your Pregnancy - - Month By Month -

Chris­tine urges moms to re­mem­ber that ev­ery­one’s ex­pe­ri­ence is dif­fer­ent, so don’t get stressed out if you don’t feel kicks of the same strength and fre­quency as other moms-to-be. If you doc­tors says ev­ery­thing is okay, then sure enough you will soon feel your baby move. Where your pla­centa is ly­ing could have an im­pact on how soon or late you feel your baby move. Another rea­son you may not be feel­ing your baby move yet could be blamed on the po­si­tion your baby is ly­ing in your uterus.

Me­lanie Com­meignes, 37, de­scribes her daugh­ter’s first move­ments at 17 weeks like the soft un­du­la­tion of but­ter­fly wings. “It was a flut­ter – and it felt just like that, like but­ter­fly wings flut­ter­ing gen­tly on the in­side of me. It was a lovely but some­what odd feel­ing.”
