in Baby Health During Pregnancy by (11 points)
I have been experiencing increased fatigue and minimal nausea, but I don't feel pregnant. The doctor confirmed that there is something in my uterus. How long does it typically take for women to start feeling pregnant? Is there a specific timeline for the growth of the stomach or feeling the baby inside?

Every woman's experience with pregnancy is unique, so there isn't a specific timeline for when you will start feeling pregnant or when your stomach will visibly grow. However, most women begin to notice pregnancy symptoms around 4-6 weeks after conception. Fatigue and nausea are common early signs of pregnancy, but their severity can vary greatly from person to person. It's also important to note that some women may not experience these symptoms at all.

As for the physical changes in your stomach, it usually takes several weeks before you start noticing any significant growth. This is because during the first trimester, the baby is still very small and tucked deep inside your pelvis. As your pregnancy progresses into the second trimester, typically around 12-16 weeks, you may begin to see a noticeable bump as your uterus expands and rises above your pelvic bone.

Feeling the baby move inside you, known as quickening, usually occurs between 18-25 weeks of pregnancy for first-time mothers. However, this can vary depending on factors such as body weight and position of the placenta.

Remember that every pregnancy is different, so try not to compare yourself too much with others or worry if you don't feel certain symptoms at a specific time. If you have concerns about your pregnancy or are unsure about any changes happening in your body, it's always best to consult with your healthcare provider for personalized guidance and reassurance.

Usually you start to feel baby move around 16-18 weeks. When you enter your second trimester you'll start feeling more pregnant than you did before.
