I keep feeling flutters in my belly...but I am only 9 weeks- is it possible that I am feeling my peanut already?? Or is it probably just gas? (lol sorry for TMI)<br><br>
If the latter, how early have you felt your baby??
With a first baby I would overwhelmingly vote for gas. It would be very unusual for you ot be feeling movement yet. I do know some women that feel movement very early, but it is usually not their first pregnancy. That said, many first timers feel movement long before they *know* it's the baby because early movement and gas do feel quite a bit alike.<br><br>
I felt my first at 17/18 weeks and my second at about 11 weeks. My placenta was in the front with my first which make feeling movement more difficult.

Prolly just gas hon! LOL! I remember feeling my first at about 13-14 weeks? The first time i felt him move it was late at night, I was lying on my back in bed and it was like a tiny fairy kick! Then lots of kicks. It was very cool!<br>
With a first pregnancy it takes a little longer to recognize what the kicks are/feel like, and it can take longer to feel them because your uterus is stretching out for the first time, so it's a little tighter.<br><br>
I don't my peanut is big enough yet to feel (we are only 6 weeks today). However, last time, since my placenta was in the front, it was almost 24 weeks before I could really feel him. It was SO ANNOYING! People kept talking about baby kicks and I felt nothing. The doctor was getting concerned and was going to schedule another u/s but then he started up and was making up for lost time!<br><br>
My vote is for gas.
