I know this is crazy,....and I am early, but when I lay on my left side at night, it feels like the baby has a micro mini paintroller under my bellybutton and is rolling it up and down,very slowly...lol... is it everything just shifting around in there, or is it possible to feel it early???

Yes, it's still pretty early.BUT some women say they can feel movement SUPER early.In my opinion, I only think thats possible with numerous pregnancies, because the uterine wall, and abdominal muscles have been stretched.It's much more normal to feel movement when you start to head into the middle of pregnancy,like 18-24 weeks.But hey, everyone is different right?

This is my first pregnancy to go past 12 weeks and I started feeling movement at 17 weeks and it has been every single day since then. I was surprised because everything I've read says that would be too early to feel anything but it was unmistakably Maddi.

I started feeling movement at 14w3d...

Technically it is still too early to feel movement, especially your uterus is about equal height with your pelvis.. but hey, weirder things have happened!

I felt my 1st flutter at 18wks. It was very low since your uterus is still in your pelvic bone area until it pops up around 16wks or later. So if you feel something it will be WAY down low. Your uterus won't be around your belly button area until your around 25wks or so.
Thank you Claire1977 for my adorable siggy
For the special little one in your life!

I felt my little girl for the first time at the very end of 15 weeks (baby has been measuring ahead though and was already 16 and 1/2 weeks big). She likes to move while I am eating lunch LOL. I just feel this flutter . I am not feeling it all the time yet just maybe once a day if I am lucky, but boy, I love it

I was going to say that it is possible to feel it this early BUT normally it is right about the pelvic region & no where near the belly button. I started feeling the trips around the 16th week.
