    Hey everyone. Yesterday i was in the bath and i swear i felt the baby move. Not a kick or anything like that just a movement. It was really similar to first time i felt DD move but that wasn't till about 14 weeks! I'm convinced i felt something (deffo not gas!) but Oh thinks i'm imagining it. Any chance it could have been? And if not what could it have been :S

    you probably can I am sure I have felt our LO moving already. I know I felt my son at 10 weeks with my previous pregnancy.

    At 8 weeks your baby is only just starting to think about growing arms and legs, so wouldn't be moving yet. However, if you're possibly farther along, maybe, but it's still really early for that.

    maybe but there is also a ton of nerves and blood vessles growing in your tummy and so it could also be nerves playing tricks on you. the only reason I mention is when I got my appendix out and my incision was healing I was having similar tingles as I am having now...only now they are coming from all over even what feels like inside...not sharp prickly always either sometimes they are soft....but I have nothing to compare to and you know your body best.

    You know I've been wondering the same thing. I felt my other 3 kids between 10-12 weeks but the last 2 days I've sworn Ive felt some slight flutters. I will be 8 weeks Wednesday. They aren't kicks by any means, just a brisk faint movement. It could just be gas but It feels exactly like it felt in the early stages with my other 3 kids so who knows.

    At 8 weeks, they're smaller than an inch, and just starting to move around. It's unlikely it was the bubs you felt.
