You should feel your baby’s first movements, called “quickening,” between weeks 16 and 25 of your pregnancy. If this is your first pregnancy, you. Feeling your baby move is one of the amazing joys of pregnancy, often allowing for an intense bond.

So it’s pretty natural to feel worried if you think you haven’t felt movement often or early. At some point in this last trimester, you may start to notice some patterns in your baby’s movements. Perhaps your baby’s more active at certain times of day or night.

Once you can feel your baby moving, it probably will be a few weeks more until your partner can feel the baby kick. What do early fetal movements feel like? Women have described the sensation as feeling like popcorn popping, a goldfish swimming around, or butterflies fluttering.

Some moms can feel their baby move as early as 13-16 weeks from the start of their last period. These first fetal movements are called quickening and are often described as flutters. It may be difficult to determine whether this feeling is gas or your baby’s movements, but soon you will begin to. It may also be a reason a woman feels the baby moving really early in one pregnancy but not until much later with the next. A mom’s weight can also affect perception of movement.

When you’ll first feel baby move (quickening) Most women feel the first movement of their active little tenant, known as quickening, between weeks 14 and 26, but generally closer to the average of week 18 to week 22 (though variations are common!).

As your pregnancy progresses and you reach your third trimester, you should feel your baby move regularly. That’s when you should begin to pay closer attention to your baby’s movements, because as your pregnancy continues, a sudden change in the amount of fetal movement may be a red flag that there is a problem. Monitoring Your Baby’s Movement. But occasionally women feel movement as early as 12 weeks.

If your friend is thin, extra perceptive, on a second or higher pregnancy, a bit off in her timing, or carrying a rambunctious baby, she.

  • I turned 14 weeks today with second baby. My first girl! I have been feeling her move since 11 weeks. Shes super active. I didn’t experience this with my first. I feel much better these days. The nausea and fatigue are finally gone. I have that second wind. This is my second time watching your pregnancy videos. I watched them when I was pregnant with my first. You were pregnant with Hailey when I was pregnant with my son. So cool. ♡

  • I’m 14 weeks pregnant with my first and I felt her rolling for the first time a few days ago it is so amazing I can’t wait to feel strong movements in the weeks to come

  • I remember not so long ago i watched your videos my son turned one 29 May and that’s the time i had my last period here i am again 14weeks pregnant with baby number 4

  • Be comfortable, maternity clothes are super cute. Long tunics & leggings are great too. You look awesome. Glad you got to hear her heart beat. Lots of love your way.

  • I have those exact migraine also, they started in my teens as well! And came are back with this pregnancy! I have to watch what I eat!

Yes, I do feel the baby moving and that is the most precious feeling in the world. Please pray for my safe pregnancy and healthy child and ofcourse, a safe delivery in June 2020.

  • Thank you for your review, I didn’t pay attention to much with my first pregnancy I just wanted my baby; but this time around is completely different. I found out and noticed much earlier and my symptoms were almost instant.

    I didn’t know we can feel the baby move at 14weeks; with my first pregnancy a year ago i didn’t find out until i was 10.5weeks and still didn’t have symptoms until about 4.5months. Now today I am 14weeks 2 days I cant feel my baby move but the little one is definitely moving from the ultrasound it’s very active already. I really hope this is normal I feel like I’m carrying lower this time around but I’m craving Watermelon, Ice Cream and Freeze Pops and fruits, I am hoping for a BOY but I’m not sure. with my daughter a year ago, I craved sweets and i am so not a sweets person. Has anyone craved just a lot of fruits and cold things or ice? if so what are you expecting?

  • Hey girl, new subbie here �� I’m so happy for you!! My husband and I are getting ready for a FET. Our first round of IVF gave us our little girl. I’ll be following your journey! Hopefully you’ll drop by my Channel, we have similar content. ❤️

  • Hi this probably is way too late but maybe you can try have some honey when encountering migraines next time. I have been having migraines since I was six and during my pregnancy too. But pregnancy migraines are better for me since they can be resolved with honey whereas normally before pregnancy I would have to take paracetamol for it to go away. Honey really works for me. Hope it can help you too.

  • I also have the same hernia in the same spot & the dr told me the same thing. 14 weeks this week, and it is concerningbut it was a little comforting hearing that your dr said the same thing to you.

  • Yes!!!! A rolling feeling I could never explain it lol �� I’m 13.5 weeks right now and last night I felt the rolling sensation very softly but it was there ��

  • These may be older videos but look forward to watching them week by week. Great to find christian mummy bloggers. 14 weeks pregnant with my 3rd

  • I’ve been feeling mine move since 10 weeks. Wondering if it’s because I’m more in tune with it, or if I have less fluid than most first time mums out there? I

  • I had migraines exactly like that with my last pregnancy and with this pregnancy! I always thought there was something wrong with me but I had all of those exact symptoms

  • I had a girl my stomach was higher also and ir was my first pregnancy now the second as lso I’m carrying higher in my stomach and I keep feeling tired also

  • I would love to hear about the natural remedy
    I too have been plagued with migraines since childhood. They did not manifest in my first 2 pregnancies just this last one. I’m 14 weeks today. I have felt my baby since I’ve been 12 weeks o ly at sporadic moments nothing consistent yet. But it’s a feeling g that never gets old! I’m thinking to myself”like, yup I’m definitely pregnant. There is a baby in me!!!!”

  • I’m 14 weeks and 2 days today and I felt my baby move and I also describe it like a rolling movement. It’s my 2nd pregnancy so I know it was the baby!! So exciting!

  • I’m 14 weeks pregnant, and I can feel the baby move too. I’m not feeling flutters either. It feels like the baby is rolling around, and then it knots up in one spot for a while…and then it will move again.

  • I really wish you stuck to the title of the video. Long winded and I just wanted to hear about movement �� because people are telling me it’s gas but I’ve never had gas feel like this in my life

  • Omg i have the same issues every time I’m pregnant i get a headache and half my face goes numb. Like the worse headache ever and i also thrown up from the pain! Crazy there someone out there that had it too

  • YES! My abdominal muscles were very damaged during my first pregnancy (also twins). Now I am 14 weeks on my 2nd pregnancy (single) and I started showing way early and I am carrying SO high. It’s more of my insides protruding than baby just yet….:/

  • My dr said I could have 30 mls of wine everyday it was good for the babies blood and helps you sleep!!!! One oz!!! Not the bottle������������

  • craving cornflakes? As a kid i’d eat LOTS of cornflakes, including like you after dinner. eventually developed intolerance! are there any cravings that you attribute to the baby?

  • I’m at 14 weeks too my changes this week my appetite has changed I quickly get hungry I ate more than in the 1st trimester I could feel the baby last few weeks already not just this time sometimes I had some vomiting feeling some sort not worst and most especially I can see my little baby bump already at this time makes me more excited. God bless to us ������

  • And you gave birth to a girl. Very fascinating when the ‘old wives tale’ actually comes true. I love your videos; they are very informative

  • I was woundering what the naturalpath reccomend for you to take and how did you find your natural path. I suffer frequently from cluster headaches. I’m 14 weeks now. Thanks for the video.

  • This is interesting because I am 13 weeks and 4 days and I feel like I am showing more in the top part of my stomach not the lower part (I had a pudgy stomach before hand) with my first pregnancy I had a 8lb 10oz baby by the end of pregnancy so idk if thats why. Although that was 6 years ago though. It feels like the top part of my stomach is already hard but the bottom is squishy lol if that makes sense.

  • Acetaminophen (Tylenol) is supposed to be safe for pain/headaches during pregnancy. If you’re a coffee drinker you can combine Tylenol with the 200mg of coffee that your allowed per day while pregnant. (I’m not big on coffee but I love Thai iced tea which has caffeine in it). Ask your doctor if he’s OK with Tylenol like my doctor is:)

  • I’m almost 15 weeks in my first pregnancy with twins. Still haven’t felt them move that I know of but I see them every two weeks moving like crazy in there. I can’t wait to be able to feel them move. Only thing I really deal with is lots of hunger and some back pain. My nausea, I was lucky, stopped in my 11th week.
