Am I Crazy, or Is This Baby Moving?

I am just about 10 weeks along with my 3rd, and for the past 2 days, I SWEAR I can feel this baby moving already! I'm really thin, and I felt my first two babies move around 14 weeks. Am I crazy? I remember exactly what those first flutters feel like, and I'm pretty sure this is the same thing, but I'm just curious if anyone else has felt the baby this early on? Thanks!

What can I do next?

My first pregnancy I felt movement around 20 weeks. The second time I felt it around 12 weeks. Just knew what to look for I guess. Enjoy it!

It could be, since you know what it feels like it seems like you notice it sooner.

Yes, Mama. You are feeling your little one moving around! I felt my 2nd baby moving at 8 weeks, and everyone thought I was crazy, but I knew that it was my little one, not gas. Don't let anyone tell you you're crazy. You are not. Congrats on your little one!

I felt my second earlier than my first---I think it was 12 or 13 weeks. So yes, I think you are absolutely feeling the baby.

I laughed a at a friend of mine who said she could feel the baby (she is dramatic) but her doctor did say that if you have had babies before it is possible to feel the baby early.

Second and third pregnancies often advances quicker when it comes to showing and feeling!

So, it's either gas bubbles, or the baby.

I felt my third and fourth around the 14 week mark. Its not that far off, so probably.

I swore I could feel my son moving, and people told me it was gas. Well, we had no idea for date of conception, so we went in for an ultrasound. Sure enough, there on the ultrasound every little pop I felt was him careening off a wall.

They measured him at 11 weeks.

Yep, it's the baby! I felt both my 2nd and 3rd moving really early on, too. Congratulations!


answers from Richmond on

Since you already know what it feels like, I would say that yes, you can feel the little thing bumping around in there ;) I swore it with my 3rd, even though everyone else was like 'you can't feel it!'... um, yeah, pretty sure I did though ;)

I didn't feel my kids till closer to week 18 but you may be feeling the baby move.
