Im 12 weeks and no longer am gettin morning sickness but am gettin weird sensations in my tummy! Only way i describe it is like a small washing machine one side of my tummy! It makes me jump its so weird! Surely its too early to be able to feel the little on move?

Thanks xx

I think the earliest you can feel the baby move is about 16 weeks, though it varies between then and 20 weeks for most people.

Congratulations on your pregnancy

Not too early. DD1 I felt at 15 weeks. DD2 at 8+5. Most people do feel it much later but it is perfectly possible to feel it at your stage. And yes that is what is sounds like.

Aww it sounds like your baby is wriggling around in there I first felt DD1 at 18 weeks! And DD2 at 14 weeks.

I am sure I felt DS move really early - about 11 weeks. When I had my scan they said that the placenta was all on the back wall or something so that was why I could feel more movement. Its exciting isnt it!

Its not too early at all. I didnt feel DS until gone 20 wks, but this time around I could feel DS2 at around 8 wks. In spite of his being miniscule! From experience I knew what it was. Now he's grown (26 wks) its like he never flipping stops.
