  • they may be muscle spasms if that is only how far along you are. I have those often, but haven't felt anything like the baby yet!

  • i know i started to show earlier with my second child but it wasnt that early. you are prolly feeling gas and your intestines moveing around to adjust for space.

  • I was showing at that time with my first because I was so skinny! You are probably feeling your uterus growing or gas

  • I've heard with thinner mama's for second or third pregnancies, they do feel the baby sooner, but not that soon. Baby's movements are so miniscule there's nothing to feel until 3-4 months usually. Unless you've got more than one baby, LOL maybe just nerves or gas.

  • maybe it is twins! my 3rd pregnancy was!
    maybe your uterus is saying...oh i remember what i need to do now!
    maybe you are bloated because of the hormonal changes?

  • Have you had any c-sections? scar tissue can grow and connect organs together (adhesions) so when something moves, it tugs on a different organ in your body. For instance, I had adhesions from my uturus grow onto my intestines. So everytime my bowels moved, I would feel a tug. It reminded me a lot of when the baby would kick.
