10 pregnancy questions you were too afraid to ask
Is that the baby kicking?
You’d think a kick to the abdomen would be easy enough to recognise, but with all the changes your body is going through it can be hard to tell if that rumbling is your baby moving or just a touch of indigestion.
For most women it starts with a fluttering sensation at around 16 weeks, with movements getting gradually stronger until you begin to feel definite kicks, as well as a few punches. Later on it will be even more obvious - they’ll have less room to move and you may even see the outline of a hand or foot travelling across your belly.
