Really? You can feel your 7 week old embryo?

I saw how small a 7 week old baby is at Body Worlds. Literally the size of a grain of rice. Fingers no thicker than a hair and legs shorter than half an inch. You can feel your baby through water, bladder, body fat, etc? Really? YOur intestines even cover your uterus and you can feel your stomach digesting as well.  I guess I just have a hard time believing this. And I have been pregnant 6 times.

  • I felt a faint flutter after 10 weeks but that was the earliest I ever felt something.

  • women just want to believe its the reality it's just gas....also the women who think they are showing this early...if you're getting bigger this early it's not the baby

  • I would say that I didn't FEEL my baby, but the phantom movements from my previous pregnancies were stronger right before I found out I was pregnant.

  • As I recall, the embryo isn't even moving at that point in time (ams, legs, etc), just more or less floating about in its tiny liquid world.

  • most women cant even feel the baby move till 5 or 6 months. you just feel your body changing in other ways-moods, breast enlargment, discharge....stuff like that

  • I dont know if its the actual embryo or the muscles changing and getting tighter, but I did know i was pregnant with son before I ever took a test,, When I sucked in my stomach muscles something felt different, its just so hard to explain. I know wierd huh?

  • Negative, not a chance. What they are feeling is something else.

  • phantom movements are when muscles twitch with the same irregularity as a baby's movement would be in the womb.
