Hi mums, I have just found out I am 7 weeks pregnant and I already feel like I can feel movements in my stomach and stretching behind my belly button. Has anyone else experienced this so early? It is my second pregnancy.

  • I felt stretching which I believe is normal (soft ligaments etc changing) but no movement that early (but this is my first child)


  • I felt stretching feelings but not actual movement. Being my first pregnancy tho I may have missed it.


  • It’s probably just your muscles etc it wouldn’t be baby,


  • I felt my baby alot earlier in my second pregnancy. Enjoy every moment.


  • Wow, I am 21 weeks at the moment & have only recently started to feel ‘butterflies’ and small movements, can feel my stomach stretching though.


  • I can’t remember when i started feeling movements


  • Never so early, you could be further than you think or it is just butterflies from the changes your body is going through


  • I think with your 2nd its easier to feel as you know what you are feeling where as the first time around you just are not sure. Hence you notice movements earlier.


  • I was 6 weeks and I felt my second baby moving around and I thought I was going mad. But it was just my little man being himself. He is now 6 and doesn’t stop. Good luck

  • Here is a thought. I had two sets of twins and at seven weeks, on both occasions, the doctor announced that my fundus was four weeks ahead of its time and I was probably having a multiple birth.


  • Yes!!! I definitely felt Baby #2 moving / fluttering about in my belly at around 7-8 weeks. I thought I was going mad, and, look, it might have all been in my head, but I swear I felt the baby move. He’s now 11 weeks old, and moves and moves and moves! :-)

    Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy!


  • Hi I felt like that with my 3rd pregnancy,so asked my dr for an early ultra sound, I felt so different so @ 10 weeks I had an ultrasound and found out I was expecting twins,I would go see your dr and ask for an ultrasound to put your mind at ease
