You : You should see your primary care doctor as well as your ob/gyn. You may simply be dealing with heartburn as a result of your pregnancy, however more serious issues need to be ruled out.

Could my baby be kicking already? I'm only in my second trimester of pregnancy. 20-25 weeks. I keep feeling these bumps coming from my stomach and the skin is bumping up too. I got told that the baby does not start moving till the third trimester. If that
Hello. : Hello. Congratulations on your pregnancy. You may be feeling your baby kicking. Quickening is when you first feel the baby kicking. It is not uncommon to feel your baby between 16 to 22 weeks. Sometimes it is hard to tell what is going on. Was that gas or was that the baby? You should be able to feel the baby's movements more vigorously as your pregnancy progresses. The baby is moving well before your third trimester. It can be moving around by the 7th to 8th week, but you would not be able to feel it that early. Take care. ...Read more
