  • If it is your first 20 weeks or so, others as early as 12 weeks, at 7 weeks they don't have the limbs to kick and move yet.

  • I felt my son at 7 weeks. I know that he didnt have limbs but i think babies can still flip.

  • imo its not possible to feel your baby any sooner then 16 weeks with your first one do you know how small they are at 7 weeks? "half an inch long, about the size of a blueberry." honestly i feel it is wishful thinking =) i know I couldn't wait to feel the baby move... My first i felt at 22 weeks a real kick not the flutters which was 20 weeks and this one I felt at 17 weeks =)
