Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

im 16 weeks pregnant and its my first pregnancy. i found out if im laying really still or sitting up i can feel something in my lower abdomen. it doesnt hurt and it feels like a very light touch but it only lasts a few seconds. and sometimes it will come right back and others it just stops

yes, my daughter kicked the hell out of me at 16 weeks, and by the time i was 5 months, my tummy became a playground! active babies make healthy babies, however uncomfortable it may be at times. i found that music and reading helped to calm her down. i placed giant headphones on my belly, and played the beatles. i read to her on a daily basis. you can read them anything, they really don't have a preferance! lol. hope this helps.

I started feeling my daughter move at 16 weeks. You will start feeling your baby more and more. Enjoy it. My daughter is almost 6 months old now and that's the one thing I miss about being pregnant. It's the coolest thing. :)

I felt mine for the first time at 16 weeks. It felt like little gas bubbles, but more rythmic. Very good sign you have a healthy little baby! Congrats!

I am gonna be 15wks on the 12th and I been feeling the baby for the last week or two moving around and kicking. Sometimes its very uncomfortable but you learn to deal and figure out how to over come it at times to get certain things done. I do have a 7yr boy but this is mine and my husband first together. My son was from a previous relationship. He adores my son as if he is own blood.
