When does a fetus start to move?
I'm a few weeks pregnant. When will my baby start moving?
“Babies are moving right from the beginning,” says Raul Artal, M.D., chairman of the department of obstetrics and gynecology and women’s health at St. Louis University School of Medicine. “With the advent of ultrasound, we can see some movement as early as six to eight weeks gestation.” But you won’t feel your baby move for several more weeks, because she’s still too small to deliver a noticeable kick.
