Hi ladies, I will be 25 weeks tomorrow, and have a question about my baby girl's movement. With my son at this point you could feel him soo good from the outside, and even see my belly flopping around at 25 weeks with him. But with this pregnancy, I can feel her moving alot and it feels strong on the inside, but on the outside, it just feels like a small muscle spasm, or "heartbeat" as hubby describes it, and you cant really see my belly move. I know I do not have an anterior placenta, so idk why it is like this. The anatomy scan came back normal, and at last ultrasound I was 20wks 1 day and she measured 20wks even so thats all good. It just has me a little worried that her kicks, although feel strong on the inside, arent really felt well on the outside. any experience or advice??

Every pregnancy is different. She may just be in a funny position or facing towards your back etc. This one has been the same way for me. My first son I felt very easily on the outside, and with this one not so much and Im 26 weeks. As long as you feel him move its fine.
