Hi there,

Im a first time mom and I read you are suppose to feel subtle movement round about now which is 4 months. I dont know if I can feel anything. I did notice when I lay on my side I get this heavy stiff feeling in my tummy and sometimes I will feel a tiny movement but then it makes me pass wind. Is this normal?

Thanks Ladies,

In your first pregnancy, movements are only felt arounf 18-22 weeks, so what you feel is normal.

Best wishes
