Okay, this is going to be a poll-style post. All you mommies out there can reply to the poll as a comment. You don't have to, of course... but I'd REEEALLY appreciate it. (plus, I'm nosey.)
See, I've been reading pregnancy books and articles for the past 7 months (approximately) and every time I come across something that says "by this time you will ____" I think to myself, well gosh, that's been going on for a couple of months already. It makes me curious. I know that every pregnancy is different, blah blah blah, and I am by no means EXPECTING to have an early baby... if anything, I'm expecting to go late, just because. But I'd like to have something solid to compare myself to, something other than "What to Expect When You're Expecting" and FitPregnancy magazine.
So anywho, here we go. These questions can be answered for singular babies or multiple babies, or not answered at all if you don't want to share:
When did you feel baby move for the first time from the inside?:
When did you feel baby move with your hand on your belly?
When were you able to see baby moving?
When did you start leaking?
Did you ever have any pregnancy symptoms that magically went away, such as backache, or squished lungs? And if you did, did it mean anything that they disappeared?
When did your belly button pop out, if it did?
When did you start having Braxton-Hicks contractions, and did you get them a lot?
At what point were you unable to sleep?
How much did your baby move throughout your pregnancy?
Was your baby a boy or a girl?
How early/late/on time was your baby?
This concludes the survery portion of this post.
To anyone who answers, thanks. I'm just getting very curious. The most recent thing I've read is that "by the end of this trimester" your baby's bones will be strong enough that you'll see him move from the outside. But I've been seeing him move from the outside for weeks and weeks already. And the whole leakage thing has been going on since about 20 weeks.
So anyway, sorry for the nasty "Ladies Only" post. It's almost midnight and I really don't have anything else to say, but I can't sleep. Boo.
