At 5 weeks pregnant, it is unlikely you would be able to feel your baby moving around in your stomach. The foetus would not yet have fully formed bones or muscles so would not be able to move or kick you at this stage. The baby will only be around 5 millimetres in length too so it would be almost impossible to feel anything at this stage.
What you are probably describing is trapped wind and gases in your stomach area. As your body is changing with all the new hormones and baby growing inside you, it is quite common for excess gases to be produced. When released in the stomach area, this can often be mistaken for a baby moving as it is often described as being a similar feeling. In addition, it could also be an indication you have eaten too much and just have some indigestion.
At this stage and as your pregnancy progresses you may feel the muscles in your uterus and stomach move and contract. This is because the body needs to change to support the baby growing inside. These symptoms could therefore also be the muscles twitching as they prepare to move and contract to accommodate your baby.
If this is your first baby and you are worried, there is nothing wrong with sharing your concerns or fears with your doctor or midwife. They will be able to reassure you and explain exactly what it is you are feeling.
I am 6 weeks pregnant and this is my second pregnancy. I can feel the flutters as you say you are and I never felt it with my first one. I had a friend who can read ultrasound do one on me and everytime I felt a flutter it was the baby moving around. It wasn't a major movement but I could feel it on the inside of me not the outside. Just remember no one knows your body like you do. And as always Good Luck and God Bless you both.
I'm only 5 weeks along this is my third pregnancy. I can feel everthing! I never felt anything with my last two till 12 weeks. This is a very differnt pregnancy. I know my body and am sure it's the growing of another life. Maybe not the baby moving but defintly due to the pregnancy.
Very likely. The baby is moving from time of conception. Every one feels the baby at different stages.
Don't let anyone tell you the baby is not moving.
This is my forth pregnancy I am only 5 weeks and I have felt some sort of movement or like bubble and I think its the baby I felt it at 7 weeks wiv my other pregnancy you recognise whats a baby and whats wind when you have had one already so I def think its possible xx
I am having little flutters feels really weird and no menstrual. I took a pregnancy test and it was negative. Actually, I took 5 and all are negative. I have an appointment to see the doctor next week.
I'm feeling this too!
I know you shouldnt feel the baby until 17/18 weeks but I felt mine at around 14 an
it wont be the baby exactly as it doesn't yet have a heartbeat for another couple of weeks , my guess is that as your body is making room for the baby you will be feeling bubbles of wind in unusual places to normal, but like I say its just a guess.
Well I have flutters rite now that I never felt before I got pregnant so I think it is the baby!! This is my second and I also felt the same thing when I was pregnant with my first.
I'm 6 week's today and just a sec ago I felt like bubbles this is my second pregnancy it felt like it did with my first at about 14 weeks maybe gas maybe more than one baby so feeling more movement for ppl that say oh its not the baby are you doctors prob not id say its possible to feel something your body is going thru a lot of changes and I guess we will never quiet know what it was good luck with it =d
Your body is growing. I felt the flutters at about three months. GOOD LUCK MOMMY and GOD BLESS. Remember if you feel get checked to be safe for the little one. Drink plenty of water.
Lol I don't know. I'm 6 weeks and I feel the same way. All the answers seem like they are right, but there are so many reasons how do I know? From what I am reading it sounds like a debate you know lol..
I'm also 6 weeks pregnant with my 2nd and I just felt like bubbles like when I was 14 weeks or so with my first for the ppl saying its not the baby are you doctors?? Prob not it could be a number of things gas more than one baby remember your body is going thru huge changes it just could be your bubba good luck
I had that when I was pregnant too. It's not the baby. The baby is way too small to feel any movements. Not sure exactly what it is, just know this is normal and is not the baby.
Its not the baby moving. At this point you really can't even see a baby, all you can see on ultrasound is fetal pole and the yolk. You would feel more from digesting a steak than from the baby.
No it's not bub. You won't feel bub until week 21 approx. Unless this is your 2nd child, you may feel a few weeks earlier. I am 6wks preggos with my 2nd child & haven't felt any movement yet.
