Baby move?

(9 Posts)

So I'm 9 weeks coming up to my 10week mark tomorrow, grin..

Over the past 2 days I've been getting a tingly feeling in my lower abdomen.. which kinda as though makes me want to itch or laugh with the feeling blush??
And earlier this morning I got woke up by a flutter feeling on the left side of my stomach but it was a really nice feeling??
Can anyone else feel this? Or has done before??

I'd say that's your little baby move! I had the same when I was pregnant! Specially when I was sitting down it's a little flutter like a flick on your tummy but inside! Most craziest beautiful feeling ever specially when it catches you off guard sometimes! Wait until babies toes pushing into your bladder! Haha

I doubt it love, they are still so very small at that stage. Their little legs don't make it out to the edges of the amniotic sac at that stage. My first I felt at 18 weeks and I was told that was early for a first pregnancy and my second I felt at 15 but it was very light even then, I just knew what to look out for. I've lost a baby at 10 weeks and held it in my hand, they are far too tiny. But it won't be long till your being thumped about all night x

A 9 week old fetus is about the size of a walnut and doesn't have fully formed limbs, so it won't be the baby just yet, but there's lots going on in there to get used to so it's not unusual to get new sensations. Won't be long now though! About 18-22 weeks is when most people feel movement for the first time.

Your baby is much to small, weighs less than 2 grams at this stage, and is buried deep inside your pelvis. You've got a fair few weeks to wait to feel movement I'm afraid! People do say they feel them from 14 weeks+, but all the sonographers and doctors I've spoken to are very sceptical of this! 18-22 weeks is about right.

I'm afraid baby is too small at that age to be felt moving but there's lots going on in your uterus that could cause those feelings. It's growing rapidly so you'll feel a few cramps and contractions etc. I was about 18 weeks when I felt my daughter move for the first time.

Ditto as others said baby is far too small to feel anything at mo. But one day you will

Average is 20/22w but varies on where baby is laying and where placenta is

I didn't feel bubs kick till 25/26w but have low placenta But did feel bubbles and butterflies think from 20w

My first baby I felt at about 18/19 weeks. I'm now 15+5 with my second and have been able to feel movement from about 11/12weeks. I thought I was imagining it at first and ignored it until my partner had his hand on my tummy one night and as baby moved he jumped out of his skin and yelled what the hell was that! One of my closest friends is a midwife I asked her if I was being stupid and she said absolutely not....it's totally normal with a second and a lot more common than people think. At my dating scan at 13+3 sonographer was not surprised at all when I mentioned I'd been feeling movement for a couple of weeks.

Is it possible to feel my baby at 16 weeks? First pregnancy. But I'm sure I can feel things, It's not kicking or anything like that but definitely something! It's quite subtle and I only notice it if I'm sitting quietly... Do you think it could be baby? Xx
