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.

I've heard stories of women feeling the baby move as early as 2 months...Is that possible?

It's different for everyone. It is possible to feel movement that early, but it's not going to be the kind of movement you completely notice. Early in the pregnancy when you start to feel the baby move it's kind of like butterflies. Depending on how far along you are you could have already felt the baby move and just not realized it. Most women don't feel/see the movement until around 20 weeks. In pregnances after your first you feel movement sooner.
With my last pregnancy I felt my son fluttering around at about 17-18 weeks, I immediately knew what it was! Such an amazing feeling... oh, and for some reason Orange Juice always got him active. Hope this helps, and good luck with your pregnancy! :)
Honestly, I'm 10 weeks, first pregnancy, and my stomach makes weird noises and I can feel it. The best way to describe it would be 'growling' but not? I have asked women in my family with children and they look at me like I'm crazy! Maybe at 10 weeks? Maybe? Maybe not??
