July 30/14....up until now it has always felt like flutters and little movements here and there. I find it a lot more stressful carrying twins then a single baby. When you have one baby and you feel movement you feel re-assured that everything is okay. The tiny flutters belong to that baby. When you have two and they are still tiny, I am not able to distinguish who is making the flutters between the two babies. You feel a movement but aren't sure if it's one baby....both.....did I feel the other baby move today?? Well today was the first time that I actually saw....like from the outside... a movement from the babies. My stomach moved out as a leg/foot shape moved. Finally we are entering into the stage of seeing the movements which will soon be followed by being able to distinguish between the two babies arms/legs......and stress decreases :)
As a little side note from an ultrasound I had last week.....people ask why do twins seem to get along so well?? Well perhaps because they have had to put up with each other from the very beginning. In the ultrasound picture you can actually see the side profile of one baby who has no where to put their legs so they are resting them on the others ones head!! For all those medical people who want to know...these babies are in their own sacs and they can still do this!
