  • I HIGHLY doubt you are feeling movement. Even if you are very thin and this is not your first pregnancy I don't think it's possible untill14 weeks or so. I felt it at about 20 nweeks with my first and about 15 1/2 with my second

  • you never know just depends on how strong your baby is with my daughter i felt her kick at 14 and a half weeks and this time i have felt him kick since i was about 13 weeks but my babies are a little larger than normal so it may just be that

  • You may be feeling flutters from your baby. It is possible. Some women will start feeling early on and some later. I started feeling at 12 weeks with my first pregnancy and around the same time with my second (currently 17 weeks pregnant).

  • i doubt your feeling baby move already usually its not till about 14 or 15wks and thats if its your second baby you feel little flutters ususally with your first you dont notice movement till about 17 to 22wks but everyone is different. with my first i didnt feel anything till about 19wks this time i felt baby at about 16wks.

  • if you are 12weeks you baby might not be strong evough to move but try this put your hand on your tummy and rube around in cricle's in on spot and the baby might move but the babya might not be strong enough yet! cause when you do that it crules the baby in a ball and they move ;)

  • I was the same way... it didn't so much feel like flutters but... bubbles I guess. And when ever people asked if I could feel the baby yet I'd say IDK. Because I really wasn't sure if what I was feeling was the baby or gas. But after awhile I realized it was the baby because it was the same feeling just more intense. Just give it a few weeks and you will know for sure and it will put a smile on your face everytime you feel it after that.
