Is it possible to feel flutters of the bay in early pregnancy?

I have felt things since very early on.. a bit confused as to what I could be feeling.. Its a fluttery hum.. and I find it resassuring.. but could it be nothing?

First time I felt it from 16 weeks. It was actually later I think 2nd time!

But if it were wind I would have felt it before as wind? Dunno - Its only since the pregnancy...

nope, i never felt wind at any time other than pregnancy, i guess its because as your uterus enlarges there is less space for other internal organs. if its fluttery bubbly feelings close to surface of skin, then it does feel similar to when the baby moves, but is still probably wind.

how many weeks are you?

you can work out how high your womb is in relation to your belly button, which will give you an idea of whether it may be baby or not, if its close to your belly button and you're only 3 months, then its wind...

on other hand, its all part of being pregnant so celebrate it if its making you feel good!

Its much lower... I'm 8.5 weeks gestation so 10 and half weeks? its kind of where my tubes would be I guess :S
