    Default First movements

    I was just wondering how early you can start to feel movements?

    I was in the bath tonight and felt what felt like movements. Lots of little 'flutters' just above my pubic bone. I also thought that mybe it was my uterus stretching a bit. It went on for quite a while then suddenly stopped...



    Anyone have an possilbe answers?

    at 5 weeks, your bub is only half a cm long, so it couldnt have been movements, sorry!

    It could definitely be your uterus stretching though.

    Wont be too long for movements though

    I personally didnt feel any movements till about 19 weeks, but some people fell them at 14 wks possibly even earlier. Bub wouldnt really be big/strong enough for you to feel movements at 5 weeks though.

    I felt Bob at 15 weeks which I know is very early for a first bub. I don't think you have any chance of feeling anything at 5 weeks - sorry!

    I agree 5 weeks is a tad early - the limbs are still budlike at that point and not formed so feeling any movement would be impossible.

    I felt my first bub at about 15 weeks I think, the second one was much earlier though - I felt very small movements at 10 weeks on a couple of occasions, but I didn't really feel him regularly until about 14 weeks.

    I first felt movements at 17 weeks, just like a flutter in my belly, you will know it when you feel it!!
