  • I think it's impossible to feel your baby that early. It's not nearly big enough, it's only about the size of a pea, give or take a little. Any movement you feel is probably just gas and your uterus stretching.

  • I agree with caitxrawks. The earliest I've felt movement was MAYBE 13 wks and that was with my 5th. At 8 wks your baby is about 0.31 - 0.43 inches in length.

  • And it doesn't have arms or legs it has nubs and too kick it would have to have joints which it doesn't. It was probably just gas.

  • Its fluttering. The fluids and gas in your stomach but its cool to know something is in your belly is growing.
