What does the first baby movements feel like? I was sitting down earlier today and for a few minutes I felt something that was like a muscle twitch where my uterus is, it felt like it was in my uterus but I'm only 12w4d and this is my first. Could I have felt the baby or is it wishful thinking?
I think I may be feeling it as well but then again I can't be sure. It feels like little pokes.. or as someone on here said a few days ago.. it feels like popcorn. The nurse said she believes it is movement based on where it is and how I described it.
I am getting definate nudges. Last night I didn't want to go to sleep cause I could still feel the movement. I even pushed where the movement was and it pushed back. It feels like when I was preggers with the boys. I never felt the butterflies only elbows and knees!
Honestly i'd say it's most likely wishful thinking and you're probably feeling gas or something else. At 12 weeks the baby is something like 2 inches, very very hard to feel, even for someone on the 2nd time around. Gas feels remarkably similar to baby movement (now that i'm on my 2nd and know what movement feels like)
I didn't feel Holden until I was 20 weeks.
it's not to say you AREN'T- you could be, but it's more likely to be gas
It's possible. With Ethan I didn't feel him move until around 20 wks. With this one, I have already felt him/her move a couple of times and I am 16 wks. They say one is able to tell what movement feels like earlier in the pregnancy after you've had your first baby because you know what to look out for as far as movement goes.
I felt my last baby moving by 14 weeks so it's not impossible. My doctor thought I was crazy but my uterus was positioned just right. When they did my u/s at 14 weeks 5 days I said "the baby just moved" and it coincided with what the tech was seeing on the screen. I know that sounds weird but well it's possible and I know I felt my baby!
The other piece of that though is that he was my 5th baby so I had plenty of experience knowing what to look/feel for.
If you aren't feeling that baby you should be very soon! During the 8th-9th month you'll really feel that baby moving your organs around. LOL
Where exactly is it? At 13 weeks you'd have to feel it right about your cervix to be baby, most women who have children still don't feel it that early.... You maybe feeling gas bubbles which we have an extreme amount of during pregnancy lol
