  • That moving is gas. You won't feel a baby for about 24 weeks. You may notice a change in the color of your aureoles, soreness and tender breasts, feeling tired or nauseous. The cramping could be your period coming. The baby at this point is no bigger than a green bean so you wouldn't be feeling anything. Your period could change cycles at anytime in your life. Stress, diet, sleep changes, exercise and many more can change it. Take a test.

  • A missed period is usually the first sign. Have you taken a home pregnancy test yet? Other early symptoms may include morning sickness, breast tenderness, fatigue, and peeing all the time. But remember, every woman & every pregnancy is different so you may or may not have some or all symptoms. You won't feel the baby move until about 16 to 20 weeks for a first pregnancy (sometimes early on a later pregnancy as your uterus stretches faster & you also know what you are feeling because you have felt it before). So the jumpy feeling may just be nerves thinking you might be pregnant. The cramping could actually be your period getting ready to start so you might just be late or again, it could be nerves. The only way to know is to take a pregnancy test & follow up with a doctor visit. If money is an issue, there are crisis pregnancy centers in most towns that will test for free--check your phone book or online. Good luck!

  • Early in pregnancy I experienced: Constipation, Mild cramping, gas (which explains movement in stomach, because you definitely wouldn't feel it this early) and a little bit of bloating. It's so misleading because early pregnancy symptoms are much the same as PMS symptoms!! So, all I can tell you is that if you've already assumed you've missed your period, go get a test. It's time!
