  • I felt my son around 12-13 weeks.. My dr told me it was gas but I know it wasn't. It was a different feeling and I had that same feeling from that time on it just got more and more distinct.

  • It's early enough in your pregnancy where most people are going to say you're still unable to feel the baby's movement. However, only a couple short weeks from now you'll be able to distinguish these movements more clearly. It's most likely gas bubbles trying harder and harder to make their way around your growing womb, but who's to say 100% that you're NOT feeling the baby's movement already? Maybe you are. As far as the roller coaster and butterfly feelings, all I can say to that is that's not how I would have described the movements I felt with my 2 girls, but that's all up to interpretation, I guess. Best wishes on your new little one to be! And congratulations, Momma!
