I feel her move about every hour. I can't seem to pinpoint any position or activity that makes her move and I wish I could! A lot of people say they feel it mostly at night when they first get into bed.

Well the books say around 24-25 weeks their lil eyes are no longer fused together, and they start opening them as they get more active and become more sensitive to the light... So we are gonna try it at random intervals... Most books say to try it at their peek "play" times...so when they are known and prone to be most active! I will for sure let you know if it works!

I felt like I first noticed movement pretty early:, at least by the 15th week, where it felt mostly like I was in a car that had just gone over a bump at a fast speed... like the bottom falling out of my stomach. She was most active between 20 weeks and around 32 weeks, when I would mostly feel her quite active after eating and while resting. For the most part she was a pretty calm baby and often I didn't even notice her moving because I just got use to it (it's not like she was kicking away forcefully). Near the end of the pregnancy it was subtler movement, like stretching, and only a few times a day. When she started moving sometimes I would poke back in the same area and she would kick in response, but if I tried poking her when she wasn't moving she didn't really seem to care. I also found that every time I tried to show someone how much she was moving, she calmed down and stopped; I also thought she might be a bit shy... I guess I will find out.

Susanne,
No you don't forget. We lost the twins in Dec. of 2007 and the other baby in March of 2008 and then I was pregnant again in June of 2008. Andrew is 16 months old today and I'm having my c-section tomorrow for this new baby. The leapster has turned on a few more times in the past few days and usually around the same time of day so I have to say it's strange but not scary. This also would have been the time when the twins would have been born, so we've taken that fact into consideration.

Nicole thats sweet to think they are watching over your baby like little angels making sure that your new baby is ok. It must have been hard to lose those babies but makes you appreciate the ones you have more too. I had a miscarraige 5 years ago and you never forget the one that you never got to see do you?

I don't feel my little one move when I'm very active. Once I sit still for a while I feel a few flutters. I'm 13 weeks and have been feeling flutters for about 2 weeks now. Doc says its just gas. I felt my son move when I was about 14 - 16 weeks.

Ok, this is going to sound strange but bare with me. A few years ago we lost twin daughters and then another son within a 4 month timeframe. This pregnancy has been troublesome with having my own complications medically as well as baby having some of her own including decreased fetal movement. I never use to have to count the movements while watching the time because they always moved a lot.
The other night my older son's leapster, (a hand held educational game system) kept turning on and off on it's own. At the same time, the baby was moving like crazy! My husband and I had the thought that our lost children were with us, turning on the leapster and playing with the baby because she's never moved so much like that night. It was strange but comforting to think that our other babies are still nearby and watching over us and maybe missing us as much as we miss them. What do you think?

My son move literally all day unless I'm eating. Then I guess he's napping or something. But as soon as that food starts to hit him he starts moving again.
Then at night between 9-10pm he'll REALLY start fightin with my insides lol. That doesnt stop until usually 2-3 in the morning. But when I'm asleep, I dont feel him move becuse, well, I'm a really heavy sleeper and I barely feel my fiance moving next to me in bed.

Ditto what Ashleigh said- this baby is more active than my son was. She moves when I first wake up, whenever I eat, if I'm sitting still or lying down, when I play music for her, and when I lay down for the night. And when I am active and trying to get stuff done, if I bend over to pick something up she fights back b/c she doesn't like being squished up. So now I have to squat down to pick things up, lol.

This baby is so much more active than my son was. Baby gets active about every 2-3 hours and then almost every night around 11pm, 2-4am and 6am. I'm hoping baby will stick to that schedule when he/she comes out, that is now my normal bathroom times. LOL! My hubby was finally able to feel baby, every time anyone puts their hand on my tummy the baby stops moving, he/she hates showing off I guess.

I've been feeling movements every hour since I was about 18 or 19 weeks. I feel the strongest kicks around lunch and supper time. This is also my second so I'm feeling things sooner than with my first. I also have my plecenta in the perferct place so I've been feeling strong kicks for a little while (At my 20 week ultrasound the baby kicked the probe a few times).

The light sounds cool. I'm 25 weeks tomorrow so i'll try it too. I find bub is most active when i lay down and get comfy too...usually bedtime. But i also feel movement every 1-2hrs. The ones during the day are usually the quick jerky hand and arm movements but when laying down its more flowing and strong like rolling around and somersaults.

I typically feel him every 2-2 1/2 hours. Unless I'm up and moving around, then I don't feel him nearly as much, unless I stand still for a min. The most active time I feel him is when I'm sitting on the couch or lying down in bed. I have fun with him in the shower as the water runs down, I watch him wiggle from one side to the other side! I'm anxious to try the light experiment... think we might tonight!
