Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

How far along before you see your child move in your belly?

0 answers
I am pregnant for the first time, and I can say for certain that I am not 20 weeks pregnant. Yet, I can feel, see, and watch my baby move in my stomach. I can feel the child kicking, or punching in my stomach, and actually see my stomach move when the child does it! But, I have been told that I would have to be over 20 weeks along before I would have this happen. I am small, barely have gained any weight on my stomach since finding out I was pregnant less than 6 weeks ago. I am only 13 weeks along, and can already feel and see my baby moving. Not like a flutter, but like I actually feel it when the child kicks! Is this normal?
