Is it my Imagination???
Hi Ladies,
This might sound wierd, but I promise you, I don't know what to believe myself. I'm currently in my 14th week, and yesterday i felt some quick fluttering movement around my navel area. at first i thought i imagined it, but again this late last night i felt the movement again! This morning as i was about to get out of bed i felt this quick successive vibration around the same area on my belly. I quickly called my hubby but by then it stopped!

Question is, I'm i already feeling my baby moving? I know they said you'll only feel baby move as from 16 weeks if its your first pregnancy, but i swear this feels wierd. I'm not wafer-thin, but I'm not fat at all, and i'ver also been losing weight since i got preggies.

When i had my last scan at 9 weeks, baby mesured 17mm which gynea said is over average. So, does this mean that baby is growing faster than i think???

Anyone, help?

Everyone is different, so it is possible that you are feeling movements earlier than most, though these could just be bowel movements that you are aware of.
