When will I feel my baby move?

I just found I'm 9 weeks pregnant, and I was wondering if I should have felt my baby move yet?

Most women feel their baby move around 16 or 18 weeks of pregnancy. It may be earlier for women who have been pregnant before. Every women is different, so you don't need to worry if you don’t feel your baby on schedule.

First movements are small, some women feel just a flutter, so your baby could be moving and you just haven't noticed yet. As your baby grows and gets stronger, you will have no doubt about what you are feeling.
