    Default Too early to feel baby move?

    I am 17weeks 3days pregnant with my first bub.

    I think I have started feeling the baby move today. Hard to describe the feeling, bit like a bubble/gas feeling but not strong.

    As this is my first bub I don't know if maybe it's just a growing feeling ad not the baby at all. Just wondering if its too early or if others have felt from this time? I could just be having a tall or chubby baby! Lol

    That sounds like it - exciting! I didn't feel with my first till about 20 weeks I think. With my 2nd I felt it by 13 weeks.
    First few times I described it as a type of butterfly wings down near my undie line. Enjoy the soft movements - soon it'll be beating you up from the inside

    Definitely possible. I started feeling weird new sensations from 16-17 weeks which got progressively stronger, but I took until around 19 weeks to be confident that it was the baby moving. I guess I still don't know for sure if it was really him that early but I like to think so

    I felt dd about 17wks. I had posted in my dig that I wasn't sure if it was her or not as I thought it was quite early. It just so happened that a scan at 17.5wks I had these same 'flutters' and on the screen she was going absolutely nuts.

    She wasn't tall or chubby either I am tall and very slim so I guess have no 'cushioning' from the movement

    Definitely possible. I think first I felt around 17 weeks, I know by 18 weeks I was sure they were movements.

    My 2nd, even with an anterior placenta, I felt movement at 13 weeks. I thought I was going crazy but it was a very distinct thud onto my pelvic floor that could be nothing else!

    Yeah I'm due the 8th! Never thought it was going to happen I still can't believe it.

    I haven't felt any movements that I can be sure it's it yet. I'm hoping it will be soon I know my placenta is at the back, so hopefully isn't to far away!
