Feeling movements during pregnancy is an exciting milestone for expectant mothers. While it is more common to feel baby's first movements, known as quickening, between 18-25 weeks, some women may experience them earlier. At around 12 weeks, the baby's muscles and nervous system are developing rapidly, which can result in subtle flutters or gentle taps that you may perceive as movement. These early sensations are often described as "butterflies" or "gas bubbles." It is important to note that every pregnancy is unique, and factors such as the position of the placenta and the mother's body shape can influence when movement is felt. If you are experiencing these sensations at 12 weeks, there is usually no cause for concern. However, if you have any worries or doubts about your pregnancy or baby's well-being, it is always best to consult with your healthcare provider for reassurance and guidance. They can provide personalized advice based on your specific circumstances and address any concerns you may have.
