Twice now I have felt that fluttery feeling! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"><br><br>
I felt my daughter early -- ten weeks -- but didn't expect to feel this one at only nine weeks! I remember being nervous when I felt my daughter -- I had no idea she was just kicking away and I thought something was wrong! My mother and OB assured me that some women feel the baby much sooner than other women. I guess I'm one of the lucky ones! I just *love* feeling those little movements and imagining I can see inside to my happy little bean jumping around!

I never feel mine until about 15-16 weeks, but at 10 weeks they are moving around in there so it's possible! You are lucky.<br>
I can't wait to feel some movement and get past this yucky first trimester.

I was so sure I felt mine at 9-10 weeks too. my midwife told me it wasnt possible and explained that it had something to do with the intestins?? dont ask me...I was just so sure it was my baby and she just had to burst my bubble!!<br>
I still remember the 1st time I really felt him fluttering..it was at 15 weeks. I just cried like a baby. I called my hubby at work to tell him. I was so excited. I look at him now and still think of that night. He is 5 weeks now.

Angela, it is possible to feel your baby early! I've had two different doctors tell me this and I know that's what I was feeling. Each woman is different -- don't let anyone burst your bubble! How rude!

The reason you'd probably be doubted is that at 9-10 weeks your uterus is quite thick (the walls of it thin as pregnancy progresses and it stretches). The baby is maybe 1-1.5 inches. Also at this point your uterus is sitting in your pelvis (i.e. not peeking above your pubic bone).<br><br>
However.... every woman is different. And if you believe that you are feeling your baby move then you probably are! No doc/ midwife can know what it feels like to be in your body.

I am 8 weeks and have felt my baby move. I know the baby is only the size of a strawberry and it's impossible. I thought maybe it was because I just gave birth 8 months ago...? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="innocent"><br><br>
With my ds I felt movement for the first time at 16 weeks and with dd at 13 weeks....normal right?<br><br>
This time I feel like it's the baby's spirit who's abilities exceed that of it's body's that is causing the movement. The movement wasn't the early fluttering either it felt more like my uterus moving than the tiny little baby.<br><br>
This was the feeling I got, then again it could be the intestinal changes you were talking about...LOL!<br>

I was hoping maybe someone else had a similar experience or viewpoint on this unusually earlier baby movement thing but no one replied after me... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>

No, not at all.... I just don't have an opinion other than that it's unlikely to physically feel a baby that teeny move.<br><br>
However, feeling the baby's spirit is a whole nother thing and I think it's cool that your connecting to your baby like that!<br><br>

I was talking to another prego who also got pregnant soon after the last one like me. She said that she also felt that "real movement" very early like if it was the uterus contracting or balling up or moving. She said that since my uterus hasn't really gone back to normal that happens. I got pregnant again when Sam was only 7 months old.<br><br>
Makes sense to me. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">
