If my baby is only 4.5 to 5 inches long....

is it possible to feel it move in my lower abdomen AND upper as well? I can't figure it out lol. I am 16 almost 17 weeks and I've hardly felt the baby move :(

  • the doctor told me 20 to 24 weeks is usually when you start feel them move more the uterus is supposed to be about belly button height at 20 so im not sure

  • It's normal to not feel baby til closer to 20 weeks. The fundal height typically is at the belly button around 20 weeks. So you're not feeling movements in your upper abdomen from baby - it's likely gas.
