I've read that at 10 weeks the baby can move, but it is too subtle for you to feel. I think it's more a second trimester thing. I'm convinced that my baby is still chilling out on my bladder, because I have been losing weight throughout pregnancy and the area behind my belly button is getting smaller. I think mine is still too low and it's going to be quite a while before I see or feel anything. I've read about babies kicking you in the vagina so hard that it causes stinging pain, so I'm going to relish the moments before I start feeling anything.
I was surprised at 11 weeks how low down baby was using a doppler - literally behind my hairline, and i've read your uterus doesn't start moving up until 13 weeks (baby is still quite low even now) so I'd be surprised if it was baby that high up at 10 weeks. I first felt baby flutters about 15 weeks, but couldn't be sure until 17 weeks - so you haven't got long to wait until you know for sure xxx
I got an e-mail today describing symptoms at 10 weeks. They actually talked about this. They said it was probably activity in bowels rather than a moving baby. Right now the baby can only move arms. The stronger ones are usually kicks and legs aren't done forming yet. Maybe just gas. I know I've had plenty!
I have been wondering this too. I have, very very rarely, felt a "fluttering" sensation down pretty low on my right side... which happens to be right about the same spot they found the Heartbeat with the doppler. It has only happened a few times (the first two times were after I sneezed really hard.) I keep thinking it might be baby (I can't feel it with my hand at all, just internally) but wondering if it is too soon.
I have a very flat stomach, and when I lie on my back and the skin streches I swear I can see the racing heart beat really low on my belly (over the hairline) probably from a blood vessel or artery providing blood to the baby, it looks double the speed of my heart beat.
