3rd May '08

hiey ladies, i am 16 weeks pregnant, im getting these weird feelings around my belly button area or higher, now i know normally with your 1st kid you dont feel it this early but that some people can. If anyone has felt there baby this early where did u feel the flutters at? Can you feel the baby up that high even tho the top of your uterus and the uterine line u can see is 4 inches below where itsuppose toshould be cuz wouldnt that mean the baby is techinally out of the uterus if its passed the top?. or is this simply just gas that im feeling? any insight would be great....thanks!

Hard to say, I'm almost 20 weeks and I can feel that baby is right at my belly button now.. so I'm not sure what you are feeling that high up...but its definantly possible to feel baby at 16 weeks in little flutters :)

I felt my first that early, but not everyday. And not that high. Hell I'm 20 weeks and some days and my son is just now at my belly button. If you were sitting over I guess you could assume that it would feel more near your belly button. So it just may be.

yeah i thought that was kinda high especially since i can feel where the top of my uterus is and its about 4 inches bellow my belly button yet....its a constant feeling soo im guessing its not the baby and probably just gas that wont come out....lol...thanks for the help tho, i feel better

usually the first flutters will be down pretty low, because your uterus isn't that big yet.



i'm almost 30 weeks, and my baby is all up in my ribs.

went to the doctors today and heard the heartbeat, doctor told me it was right where it should be, between my belly button and pelvic bone...which is good i guess..i dont know, i try to find the top of it myself and never can lol. but anyway i figured out those things i was feeling was my heartbeat. i can feel it in my belly and if i sit still i can see it move up and down.
