  • Not much at that stage, give it about 6 more weeks.

  • it may be gas you are feeling, and bloating... thats very early but maybe possible.... i felt a little bitty movement at 16 weeks, but not ROLLING and i NEVER saw movement that early.

  • everyone is different, dont let anyone tell you that you didnt feel your baby move. your body is not theres. and like every multiple mother knows, your body is more sensitive each pregnancy. so you could feel the baby moving sooner than a first time preggo mom..dont let anyone bully you into thinking you didnt feel your baby move. i think you did.

  • Maybe you have your due date mis-calculated. ??

  • That makes you around 3 months so yes you probaly were feeling the baby move. I'm prego with my 3rd and could feel the baby moving around 2 months. Even the sonogram technician said that it was too early for me to be feeling her move. SO, I bet her 5 bucks that I could and sure enough, every time she moved I could tell. I won 5 bucks, :) After your first you are more sensitive and also don't mistake moving for gas like most 1st moms do. You know what it feels like when your baby moves so I'd say yep your right.

  • I'm pregnant with my 3rd and felt her move at 8 weeks. I don't care what anyone says, I know what I felt! It wasn't like a crazy movement, but it was enough to know it was the baby and not some bodily function. Now I'm 21 weeks and feel a lot more now than I did with my previous and 1st pregnancy. She also feels stronger but that may just be becuase it's my 3rd time around. So yes, it may have been your baby moving in my opinion.

  • I'm 18 weeks along and I do feel some movement. The first time I know for sure I felt the baby was around 15-16weeks along. But now I feel like the baby is doing the back stroke or swimming in circles, I get the swirly belly feeling or long jabs along the side of my lower belly.

    I think you will know for sure if it is the baby. This is my 1st baby and I just "KNEW" when it was the baby and not gas.

  • I felt my son move that early and I KNOW that's what it was. People don't know it's your body. On average women can't feel it til about 20 weeks but its just an average. My doc said it has to do with if the plasenta is on the inside or outside of your gestational sac.

  • The first time I felt my first was at 13 weeks, and I felt him with my hand on the outside of my tummy. It's definitely possible, even if it is uncommon. You'd know better than anyone else.
