Baby moving?

So I was standing in my kitchen and I felt something in my stomach that felt like the baby flipping. I felt it a couple times followed by some other movements. I am 20 weeks today and I have only felt the baby a couple times. After the feeling I had now I feel constant movements in my belly. So my question is....Is it too soon to feel the baby move or is it the baby moving and doing flips. I have my ultrasound tomorrow and I find out what I am having. But I am a bigger girl and have been told its normal not to feel the baby until 22 weeks. Just curious. It was an awesome feeling though!

  • No it is not too soon to feel the baby move. Also being bigger has nothing to do with it. Some will feel as early as 9 weeks and some not till after 20 weeks.

  • 20 weeks is normal, sometimes they kick earlier around 18 wks.

  • My son used to make my tummy look like I had an alien (as my brothers called it) in my tummy. Literally, caved in on one side and expanded on another side. He turned out to be an extremely big boy also!

    My daughter kicked the crap out of my organs. Completely and totally kicked the crap out of them! The other thing she used to do is when I would sit in the wading pool (July and 90's) she would crawl up under my rib cage. She really did some weird things when she was in my belly!!
