Fluttering at 7 weeks?

Answered 2 months ago

Before you all laugh at me, this is my 10th pregnancy. I have 4 children and the other 5 I lost before 9 weeks. I'm feeling fluttering, which I never felt until 3 -4 months with the others. I've never felt it this early before. Has anyone else felt this early? Could it be an eptopic pregnancy? I haven't had any pain and only a spot of blood at 4 weeks, but nothing since. I'm booked in for a dating scan next Tuesday. What could be going on???

Have an answer?

I’ve got flutters to at 7 weeks. So don’t think you’re imagining it. I felt where the implantation happened and that is where I’m getting flutters. Week 7 is when the baby starts moving so makes sense. I think just depends on how sensitive you are to changes in your body which I definitely am.

That’s exactly what I’m feeling, too! Exactly in the spot implantation happened. I certainly feel it. I was wondering if that could be baby flutters or not; I’m not gassy nor constipated and I know what those two feel like. I read that baby starts wiggling from week 6.

Definitely not. It’s impossible at 6 weeks. And 16 weeks is quite early to feel anything too. It’s wind, or it’s the uterus stretching, or it’s the muscles and ligaments stretching and loosening. All those things feel very much like baby movements, and when you’re pregnant you pay more attention to your body... very easy to mistake it. Just wait until. You’re over 30 weeks and your baby is doing somersaults. And you see an elbow or a foot shape. No mistaking that!

This is so not true... the more times you have conceived the earlier the movements may be felt. Definitely way before 30 weeks and 16 weeks isn’t too early.

^ I don’t think responder above was saying you can’t feel movements
before 30 weeks. Of course you can! It is impossible to feel movements at 7 weeks though. Those who are saying you can are feeling wind (which feels like flutters sometimes) and / or stretching.

I am currently going through the same thing. I’ve had a constant flutter in my uterus for two weeks now. Even though I keep getting negative pregnancy test I truly believe I’m pregnant. I’ve never had flutters this long and this would be my third pregnancy. Baby Dust to you all🙏🏾❤️

Haha, I thought I was tripping too, and I honestly wouldn't be posting here if it didn't feel identical to it. That's why I was thinking eptopic, I've never had one before and didn't know if it causes this sensation or not. But thankyou

I would say muscle twitches or spasms… especially as you've had quite a few pregnancies before. I'm pregnant with my third, and sometimes get muscle twitches (from uterus expanding) that feel EXACTLY like baby kicking. I'm 4.5 months along so have felt baby for a while now, but these twitches are way higher up, where it's physically impossible for baby to be. But it feels identical. And I think when you've had a few pregnancies, your uterus starts expanding earlier, so this could be it

This sounds like the most likely thing, thanks. I have been putting on weight already and can feel my belly getting bigger. Thankyou

I swore I could feel crap going on in my uterus when I was like 7 weeks along as well. Only my 2nd pregnancy, but I put it down to muscle twitches and stuff as there is no way I would feel a baby move at 7 weeks. I think it's just because of how aware of my uterus and everything I am this time around. Currently 25 weeks and can even feel bubba kicking on the outside now 😊.

My pelvic bones vibrated from about 6 weeks when I was pregnant. Just go with it.

Any time I was sitting quietly or in bed at night I could feel myself vibrating. I just figured it was heartbeats doing it.

I would say it's probably wind which feels very much like those flutters, 7 weeks is just too early.

Definitely not wind, but thankyou.

Yes definitely. It is impossible to feel a baby move at 7 weeks. It's just too small. I remember what those first flutters felt like. I've also had wind that feels just like it. How do I know know it was wind, because I felt it when I wasn't pregnant. Never felt it before a baby, not that I noticed anyway. so don't discount wind, because that is far more likely than baby moving.

I've had wind thousands of times. This is definitely not wind. I have only felt this when pregnant as fluttering, just not this early

REPLY

But wind can feel like flutters. Not the wind where you get a stomach pain or you feel like you need to fart, but like being tickled from the inside. Is it like that?

Hm I felt mine at 15 weeks. I think a lot is to do with the position of the baby. Don't they also say the more you've had, the earlier you feel it? I can understand that you would be worried after your other experiences, if it is going to stress you out consider seeing your GP?

Forgot to say too, are you sure about your dates? Maybe you're a bit further along than you thought?
