Normal to feel movements so early on?

Preg with my second child so i'm aware of what the movements feel like. I'm approx 9 weeks but have been feeling fluttering, movement and pressure just below my belly button which comes then eases off when i press on it. I do not know anyone that has felt anything so early on. Mum joked that i could be carrying more than one which would possibly explain having any movement? I know this all sounds silly but has anyone ever felt anything so early on or have any explanations to why i am feeling movements? I don't think i am further on than 9 weeks unless i had a period while pregnant(happened to my mother). Would appreciate your comments as i am very confused about this. Thank you x

I also felt things from around 8 weeks. It can't be the baby though think it must be mini contractions or something

Trapped wind perhaps?
I felt movements (I'm sure) with my second DD from about 13 wks. At 9 wks they are still very very tiny so I guess it would be unlikely BUT you never know.........
Perhaps you are further on than you think?

I felt movements with ds2 at about 10 weeks. Absolutely no doubt. I told the sonographer at my nuchal scan and they said they'd heard that several times before.

Thank goodness i am not imagining!Felt as tho i was going crazy.Good to know i am not the only one that has felt something. I thought that there must be a resonable explaination to it. Maybe i am further along than i think. I wont know until my scan.

What you are feeling is gas.

Sorry, but even if your baby was moving at 9 weeks (dubious), you wouldn't be feeling the minute movements of a fetus size of the first digit of your little finger.

I felt movements at 12 weeks and it was twins.

I had a scan at 9 weeks and my baby was moving, its not dubious atall.

I am envious is you are feeling it ( 15 weeks and nothing for me ! ) although i do think its unlikely, my bean at 9 weeks was 2.3 cm or something miniscule.

Moving, how? Flicking fingers kind of moving or kicking the tummy kind of moving?

Doing the salsa kind of moving wink

It was just kind of flipping about like a fish, bouncing off the edges.

Apparently they only start moving at 8.5 weeks so i was quite surprised !

Thought I was mad. I'm just under 11 weeks and convinced I felt something but told myself I couldn't. I's my fourth baby so I'm guessing by what people have said I may be able to.

I guess it's impossible really to say if it's trapped wind or baby moving. But it's nice to think that you are feeling your LO doing a 'hello mummy' dance in there! Awwww.

As soon as I conceived I knew I was pregnant. I felt like something was happening inside of me and felt a vibrating sensation.

Then at 12 weeks I felt the baby move.

At 20 weeks I started to feel the baby kick and still feel it at 33+5.

According to the doctors/midwifes and science in general, I couldn't have possibly known when the baby was conceived or experienced movement/kicks as early as I did, but I know better.

Incidentally this is my first.

Trust your instincts, you probably are feeling the baby move.
