What is THIS HELP

I am almost 17wks and started to feel alot of movement... I mean ALOT. I have felt kicking right above and to the left of my belly button and down in my right hand side at the SAME TIME. Is it really possible my baby is that big already? Im very petite as well but this is much bigger than an 'avacado' like the pregnancy app says. I am also very sure its kicking because when I lay flat I can feel a hard surface/bumps like the baby and this feels sooo different than gas and my husband felt it. Is it possible its twins?? This is my second baby.

it is possible that your baby is that big and because it's your second baby you are more sensitive to being able to feel it move early.
Did you have an ultrasound yet? or do twins run in your family?

well if twins are in the family it is possible, I would have your doctor do another ultrasound then

I just experienced this same feeling last night! I'm 20weeks along and this is my first baby. I was relatively petite prior to pregnancy. I'm 5'6.5" and weighed around 140lbs before I got pregnant and last time I went for a check up I weighed around 150 I think. Anyways I know I felt the baby stretch out all the way because I was laying down for hours in bed (it was night time) and I felt the baby kick on my bladder for the first time and at the same time I felt a bump on the top of my uterus by my stomach! Its crazy lol :) Although my ultrasounds have confirmed one baby and twins are not too common in my family. My dads mom had a set of twins that I'm aware of but idk. Just thought I'd let you know your not alone or crazy. Shoot as I'm writing this my baby is kick punching and jabbing me lol :) Oh and I started feeling movements early too...in the 16th week but every week thats passed the baby has become more active and strong :)
