My friend is ONLY 13 weeks PG and claims she just felt the baby move?

Ok, here's the scoop. My friend is 4'11" and she is overweight by at least 60LBs, give or take. She is 13 weeks PG, and she posted a couple weeks ago a picture before she ate and after she ate, and after she ate, she was HUGE (THIS WAS JUST AT 9 OR 10 WEEKS pg!!!)!!!

Well, she posted on her FB tonight::: i think i might of felt the baby kick. but not to sure lol

What would your comment on her status be?
I mean, it's obvious she just has indigestion!

  • IT's possible that she "thinks" it is the baby moving... as she gets further along, she'll realize that what she is now feeling ISN'T the baby. Its her first, so she doesn't know yet. Give her a break!

    IF you feel it necessary to comment on her status.... I would just say... YAY! and leave it at that.

  • Is it her first baby? If so then it is unlikely to feel it so early. But I KNOW I felt my second baby move at 12 weeks. And my third at 14 weeks. I was overweight too.

    I think you are being rather rude to your friend. You should be supportive and not so judgmental.

  • Probably unlikely that it was the baby she was feeling seeing as it's her first. Seeing as you're her friend though, you should feign happiness if you have to but you don't have to go bursting her bubble.

  • Yes, it's very possible at 12-14 weeks.

  • well, first of all being fat doesn't really mean she will feel the baby move later....the baby is inside of her, the fat will only delay people on the outside feeling the baby move. but i felt my second child move at 14 weeks.....she could have really felt it. i would just say something like 'o.....wait until they're 38 weeks, you won't be laughing anymore!' because i'm mean like that lol

  • If she has been prego before it is possible.....but yeah it could be juss gas because the baby is kinda small for her to feel doing anything any time soon lol

  • She might be able to feel the baby move. I felt my second baby at 14 weeks pregnant

  • First of all you are not a very good friend. You are very judgemental. How do you know it wasnt the baby? Are you in HER body? I felt my FIRST child move at 12 weeks. So it is very possible. Try being a friend first.

  • With my first I felt him @ 12 weeks!! So it's possible!

  • "Some moms can feel their babies move as early as 13-16 weeks from the start of their last period. These first fetal movements are called quickening and are often described as flutters." - American Pregnancy Association
