All day today I had a sore feeling in my lower stomach. It's not really a pain but it's really annoying, could this be because my uterus is growing? I'm not worried about it just curious. Oh and also I'm really anxious to feel the baby move. So I'm wondering at what week you ladies felt your baby move? I'm 12 weeks today btw yay! Very Happy

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Growing uterus can be a reason of stretching pain but that pain is mild enough.At the 14th – 20th week, a great event called quickening occurs. This is the first perception of fetal movement by the mother. Usually felt around 18-20 weeks in first pregnancies, it can be as early as 14 weeks in later pregnancies due to the increased sensitivity of the more relaxed abdominal muscles.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counseling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
