I am 20 weeks and feel my baby move all the time. I can even see my stomach move if he does a strong enough movement. I am 5'7" and prior to pregnancy weighed 130. I have read that many women don't even feel fetal movement until 24 weeks or so. Should I be concerned that there is so much activity going on. I mean I can literally see my stomach move when I feel my baby move, and my husband has seen and felt it too so I know I am not crazy. Should I be concerned? Is it too early for all of this?

No.

Really, chill out. You only need to be worried if you DON'T feel anything.

I wish i could feel mine that much at 20 weeks. I didn't get regular, strong movement until about 25 weeks. I'm a bit over weight so i had to wait for the strong ones. But i'm 35 weeks now, and i tell you what she's got some strong legs, and arms! lol Enjoy the movement. You'll miss it when she/he is born Smile

I wasn''t 100% sure I could feel the baby at all yet (at 20 weeks) and then all of a sudden tonight it was like there was an alien in my belly!
It''s nice to know it''s not just me!!
