This might seem like a crazy question or an off the wall question. but i was wondering what it felt like to feel the baby move? when do you first feel the baby move during pregnancy?

Re: Question

Well with my 1st I felt it at 22 weeks, my 2nd i felt it at 20 weeks. At first I guess I would say it feels like gas bubbles, or little flutters.

I read your posts above and I would definitely get a new doc.
My docs want to see me after you have missed my second period. And all he does is check the uterus and cervix, and he can tell from that.
I am on my third pregnny right now, and waiting to hear the heartbeat in about a week, I hope. According to my last period I am almost 17 weeks, but I have a feeling I am not that far along. I was very irregular.
Good luck and I hope you find a good doctor!

Re: Question

I felt my son at 4 months but wasn't sure that is what it was..he was my first baby. I felt him once or twice it wasn't back to back and it wasn't one of those "Oh I felt the baby move!" moments. It was a week later when he moved ore that I was sure it was the baby moving. It was 2 months before my hubby could feel the baby kick b/c he wasn't strong enough. From what Inoticed and what others tell me it isn't something you will be able to feel with your hand it is something like you swallowed a live frog or something. I know it sounds gross but my son never felt like gas bubbles. It felt to me more like I ate a live animal or something and it was trying to get out. But when and what everyone feels differs. I have a friend who is 8 months preg. and never felt the baby move b/c it was too small. So I guess it all depends on the babies size and how intune you are with your body.

Smile, life doesn't last that long.
