Today I went to my doc and asked if the baby was moving he said "Yes, why?" I replied "I can feel it." So there is my proof that i can feel baby moving at 12 weeks 4 days! I got a pic of the baby n it is an awesome pic. You can see it's nose and mouth and it's lil hand in the background! That made my day. So no ladies...it's not gas this time! haha. Was wondering if any one else can feel the baby yet. Congrads on all you mommas in advance!

i went to the doc friday and he told me the small stomach pains i get in certain areas ever so often is probably the baby moving...it almost feels like gas in one spot and then it disappears, comes back, leaves, etc.. Does anyone experience this?

I am 17 weeks and 3 days and i can honestly day that i dont think i have felt the baby move at all. Its kind of worrying me a little bit. This is my 2nd child but it has been 12 years since i was pregnant last time. I can say that my stomach has felt weird at times but im not sure if thats the baby or not. I am going with it is and im just out of practice. I know i would feel a lot better if i did feel the baby move at least then i know everything is alright.

I am 12 weeks, and I'm certain I have been able to feel mine moving since about 10 weeks even though I'm pretty sure it would be too small at that age to feel it. I felt my first baby move at 14 weeks even though they say you probably won't feel it until about 18 weeks with your first, although with your second you may feel it as early as 14 weeks as you know what it feels like second time round. But since I felt my first so early, I guess it makes sense that I'd feel the second one even earlier.

Almost 17 weeks pregnant and felt a definite baby move yesterday when we took off on the plane for Cape Town. From the 16 week scan I had, baby was moving so much that we struggled to get a still photo of baby but finally got of him sucking his thumb and "waving to his big brother"!

Quoting Kimberly:

Yes! At this point I'm right at my 18 week mark so its obvious but as early as 12 weeks I could feel flutters. I'm suprized to hear so many people having ultrasounds before the 18-20 week mark...my doc refused to do one until this week to determine sex of the baby. When I asked, I'm told they check the baby's heart beat and my health is fine so they see no need. Is that normal?


Kimberly, some doctors do things differently. I new the first day of my last period, however I have been irregular, so after Dr. did a physical and said my uterus was small for what we thought was the due date, she wanted me to have an US to determine due date. We were off by a month. Then I did a new blood test followed by another US at 13 weeks. This is only the 2nd out of 4 pregnancies where I have had more then 1 US. So not to worry! If baby had cooperated a few weeks ago the tech could have "SEEN" down there, but he/she was being stubborn and faced my back the entire time! US Tech said there will be no problem when I come back at 20 weeks 4 days.

I am feeling the baby move and have been for about two weeks. My dr told me that the reason i know its the baby is that i have had two already. I guess its easier to distinguish between gas and baby if you know what you are looking for

Yes, the baby is moving a lot. It makes me so happy to know the baby is alive and kicking... literally.

what exactly do you feel??? I dont know if i have felt hte baby move or not..right now i just got done eating and i think i might have felt something but i dont know its almost like a pulsing or a soft movement or pushing or something in my stomach when I slightly lean forward while sitting up ...could it be my imagination?...this is my first and I honestly dont know what "butterflies" or "flutters" feel like.

Ill be 16 weeks on Friday. When will the feeling be strong so i can feel it?

A few weeks ago I was convinced I was feeling the baby move -- little flutters that sort of made me feel like I was nervous about something -- but everyone told me I was crazy since I was only 14 weeks and this is my first. . Last night -- I definitely felt it!! it was amazing

Well I wasn't expecting to feel the baby so early, it seemed to take forever with my first! But in week fifteen my husband and I felt definate kicks for this little one! I had a feeling I was feeling the flutter movements for a few weeks, but that day of the first kicking was amazing. I think it's absolutely the best part of being pregnant. Now I'm just hoping to schedule an ultrasound at my next dr. visit on monday! fingers crossed!

Well, the baby actually starts moving around 7-ish weeks, but some people start feeling it pretty early- especially if the mother is skinny. I just felt the first fetal movements a couple days ago at about 13 weeks and 3 or 4 days. It felt like little bubbles popping every 10 seconds about 5 times in a row and then stopped. And it was right after I stopped poking my uterus, because I could feel a buldge, so I think I woke the baby up, ha ha!

This is my first child so i'm not sure of what I'm feeling...Sometimes I feel little flutter but when I went to the doc at 15 weeks they told me it was probably my imagination...I don't feel it often but I swear I do feel SOMETHING...It usually happens when I lay really still on my back in bed...I'm 17 weeks and I CAN'T WAIT to start feeling the movement regularly...

I always feel it move!! It just started about two weeks ago. I am now 16 weeks pregnant.. :) I think it is one of the best feelings in the world.. What is crazy is that I crave lemons so bad right now and EVERY TIME I eat them, my baby moves and does not stop for a long time.. lol. I love it.. :)

Congrats to you, too! It took us 11 months to get pregnant and I am only 26 with no problems. We didn't think it would ever happen..

A few flutters. But if I sit or lay in a position the little one does not like I get a tight feeling... Like the little is trying to push me the way it wants me to go.

I do feel like the baby is moving... I am 14 wks tomorrow. But my doc and everyone else says it's too early, even though this is my second child and you're supposed to feel the second one earlier. It could be gas though. They feel so similar, it's hard to tell! LOL I can't wait until I can feel the baby move for certain. There's no other feeling like it! Congrats to you too! :)

This is my first baby, so I'm not sure what it should feel like. When I first lay down in bed at night, sometimes it feels like my uterus is bouncing around. I have to lay really still to feel it. Would that be the baby moving around?

With my duaghter the first time I felt her move I was 15 weeks pregnant, but now I am only 10 almost 11 weeks with my second one and I swear i can feel it moving. I feel random flutters and twiches in my uterus and I know it is not gas. Haha I did read somewhere though that if this is your second or plus child that you are more aware of moving this time around because you know what to look for.
