HI ALL! New to the forum
Im 8 weeks + 2 with 2nd baby and I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced the 'flips' I am getting already.
I keep telling myself surely I cant feel him/her move but now and again i get a little flicker and it does feel like its moving around.
Anyway they do say you feel them earlier with the second one so just wondering if anyone else has had this - of course it could just be wind

They tend to say anything before 12wks is more likely to be wind although the limbs are forming around 7-8wks so they will be making some movement

I think the earliest you can feel them is 12-14 weeks, if you're lucky lol.
An 8 week old fetus is the Size of a tomato, more or less. And the limbs forming are so small like stubs lol.
So maybe in a month youl feel movements :)

Hi it wouldn't be movements your feeling. At 8 weeks its the size of a raspberry and well down in the pelvic cavity where it stays until at least 16 weeks where the growing utetus expands up and out of this area. What your prob feeling is stretching and wind. If this is first baby you may not be aware of movements until after 16, even 20 weeks X
