Timeline of Baby Movement

August 17, 2013

I started to feel some sensation or some movement in my belly area that I’ve never had before since week15. But I am not sure if it’s baby’s movement. It might be my stomach? So I googled again and below is what I got.

Timeline of Baby Movement

Here is a guide to your baby’s possible movements.

  • Week 12: Your baby should start to move, but you probably won’t be able to feel anything, because the baby is still so small.
  • Week 16: Some pregnant women will start to feel tiny butterfly-like flutters. The feeling might just be gas, or it might be the baby moving.
  • Week 20: By this point in your baby’s development, you may start to really feel your baby’s first movements, called “quickening.”
  • Week 24: The baby’s movements are starting to become more established. You might also begin to feel slight twitches as your baby hiccups.
  • Week 28: Your baby is moving often now. Some of the kicks and jabs may take your breath away.
  • Week 36: Your uterus is getting crowded as the baby grows, and movements should slow down a bit.
