    Hi, does anyone know how soon you can feel the little flutters of your baby inside you???
    I'm only 4 wks 5 days and I swear I just felt a flutter?... Yes, you may think I am crazy. I don't think it was wind :) I've never felt anything like it, the only way I can describe it is a flutter... Could it be possible?!

    i dont think you would feel your baby move at 4 weeks only cos the baby is about the size of a seed, i felt baby move first time about 18 weeks and they were only flutters. u get alot of weird feelings though when your pregnant so it that explains it! lol

    Don't think it could have been baby, cause it doesn't have any limbs yet and is about the size of tiny seed.

    I have had them to and it is just pregnancy ladies, I am sorry but I heard the earliest especially for first time moms was 14 to 16 weeks and most not till after.

    I was about 20 weeks before I felt definite movement.. at 18-20 weeks felt a few flutters. Sorry but your baby is so tiny right now.. there are lots of wierd feelings in early pregnancy.

    Sorry hun, it is impossible to feel at nearly 5 weeks. It is most likely gas. Here's a picture of your baby (you'll see how that's impossible):

    4 weeks is far too early...your baby is the size of a seed.

    I havent felt mine yet (2nd baby) and on my first, I think I was about 17 weeks before I felt him move.

    no way i'm afraid it is smaller than a grain of rice at the moment! from 14wks onwards is prob the earliest tho my friend swears she felt baby at abt 12wks.

    It is probably wind hun, I had loads of it in 1st trimester!

    I had flutters at 15 weeks and can feel vibration wriggles (only way I can describe it!) and they were from 16 weeks exactly.
