Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic

Baby movements are felt from the 16 th to 25th week of pregnancy, first time mothers may feel them closer to the 25th week. It can be difficult, especially for a first time mom , to figure out if the sensations felt are the baby's movements.

They are felt like a twitching or fluttering sensation, though persons may experience them differently.As the pregnancy progresses they are more easily felt.

I hope this helps
