I am so used to early ultrasounds, seeing a teeny blob in a big uterus. My first reaction was how big she was. My second was how developed she is.
She looks great.
She had the hiccups and was clapping her hands and rubbing her face.
And everything is perfect: normal heart, normal spine, normal piggy toes.
She's jammed in there so snug...why can't I feel her yet?

She is GORGEOUS! As for feeling her...I didn't feel Rusty until I was 20 weeks! I was starting to really wonder. Even after that, I never felt him a lot. He was jammed in SOOOO tight. I never got REALLY huge, but he came out 8 lbs. 6 oz. He was just snug as a little bug in there. Everyone would tell me how they felt their babies move all of the time and I didn't, but I also wasn't woken up by him in the middle of the night! (Until later on!)
I love her little face! It's so precious! Looking forward to seeing her on the outside!

Hope she starts tapping hello once in a while for you! :-)

I didn't feel (or more accurately didn't recognize what I was feeling) until the 20-week ultrasound, when I saw him move and correlated it with what I was feeling. From then on out I could recognize the feeling and realize that I had been feeling him for some time, but was attributing it to gas or stomach feelings.
I would bet that when you do recognize the feeling you will realize that you've been feeling her for a while.
She looks great!

Pie liked to roll around before he really started kicking. I thought at first that it was just gas bubbles, but it was such a unique feeling that I finally realized it was the baby, not my digestion. And the day I felt him actually kick me, it was just the tiniest taps, but I knew it was him! After that, he was a stretcher: He'd lodge a foot or shoulder on my left hip bone and try to reenact Aliens through the right side of my belly. I had to push him back down all the time. He's still that way. He'll kick anything near his feet -- even my face, if I'm not careful!
The weirdest feeling, though, is after she is finally Outside, and you're sitting in the hospital holding her and still feeling kicking in your belly. Phantom kicks are wacky! Pie's been out for a year and a half, and I'll get a gas bubble that I'm sure felt like a kick, and have to remind myself that I'm pretty darn sure I'm NOT pregnant!
