Hi, In your first pregnancy you usually notice hardening of your tummy, around 3-4 months. With your second pregnancy it can happen a earlier. With multiple pregnancies, it happens earlier still.

You were feeling pregnant and you have gotten your period and had negative tests but lately you can feel somthing moving in your stomach like a baby kick is this possible?

You would have to be no less than 3 months pregnant to feel any movement. The first movements you will feel will not feel like a baby kicking, it will feel more like flutters. If your pregnancy tests are still negative then you are not pregnant, if you think you are far enough along to feel fetal movement. It could be that you are experiencing a phantom pregnancy because it is not likely that you would have negative pregnancy tests and getting your period.

Is it possible to feel a movement in your belly at a couple of weeks of pregnancy?

No, it is much more likely that you are feeling gas moving through the small and large intestines! The pregnancy hormone has effects on many abdominal structures, including the stomach, intestines, uterus, ligaments, etc. As your body adjusts in the first trimester, you can have all kinds of weird sensations. Don't let what you've heard about pregnancy get too far ahead of where you are in your pregnancy.

How far into pregnancy should you be able to feel the baby move?

You should begin to feel your baby move at 18-20 weeks of pregnancy. This time can vary based on whether this is your first second trimester pregnancy or not, as well as your body fat. First-timers & heavier women may not feel this movement as early. The first felt movements are more like a fluttering feeling. The real "kicks" start after 22 weeks. Sometimes you can even tell the difference between a kick & a stretch. You can also feel hiccups.

Could morning heartburn be a sign of pregnancy?

Generally morning heartburn is a side-effect of pregnancy (rather than a symptom of pregnancy). It usually occurs once it is fairly obvious the lady is pregnant; when the abdomen has distended quite a lot, indicating that there is a fair amount of pressure on the stomach (and some other internal organs). The extra pressure on the stomach can cause acid reflux, since it effectively limits how far the stomach will stretch (to accommodate food etc...). Since stomach capacity is reduced, acid has a tendency to flow up the oesophagus, causing heartburn.

Feeling a flutter just below my ribs at the top of my stomach could i be pregnant?

It is possible but you would be pretty far along to already feel the fluttering feeling. I would hope you have noticed other possible symptoms of pregnancy as well. Try taking a pregnancy test to determine for sure if you are pregnant or not. If you are pregnant, schedule an appointment with an OB/GYN to start your prenatal care as soon possible.
