When does the baby begin to move and how do we feel?

The fetus begins to move in the womb early, from 8-9 weeks, but these movements do not feel like the fetus is small.

As the fetus increases the movements become perceptible. Weak pregnant women feel the baby's movements earlier - at 18 weeks.


Also, those who are in the second pregnancy feel the movements of the fetus earlier.
Around 20-22 weeks all pregnant women begin to experience fetal movements.

These are compared with pregnancy, initially with the wings of a butterfly.
