Answer: Hello dear. It is absolutely fine if you haven't felt anything yet. You should feel your baby's first movements, called "quickening," between weeks 16 and 25 of your pregnancy. If this is your first pregnancy, you may not feel your baby move until closer to 25 weeks. By the second pregnancy, some women start to feel movements as early as 13 weeks. Early in your pregnancy, you may just feel a few flutters every now and then. But as your baby grows -- usually by the end of the second trimester -- the kicks should grow stronger and more frequent. Studies show that by the third trimester, the baby moves about 30 times each hour. But if I share my personal experience my gynae told me that there should be movement every hour. Hope it helps.

Answer: Dear, it's too early to feel movements, it takes time. Please wait. It starts something like butterflies inside stomach n light kicks (if and only if we pay attention most of the times and gradually you will be able to make out clearly)

Question: how do know about baby movements...?
Answer: Hello dear. The first fetal movements are called quickening and are often described as flutters. It may be difficult to determine whether this feeling is gas or your baby's movements, but soon you will begin to notice a pattern. Take care.
