Answer: You should feel your baby's firstmovements, called "quickening," between weeks 16 and 25 of your pregnancy. If this is your first pregnancy, you may not feel your babymove until closer to 25 weeks. Usually the feeling resembles tiny bubbles in your lower stomach. It may feel like you’ve got butterflies floating around in your intestines – this is probably your baby experimenting with his hands and feet and what they can do – but since he is so small, they make little impact at this stage. Don’t worry if you don’t recognise these early movements – baby will soon grow enough to definitely let you know he’s happy and kicking!
