This is pregnancy #4 for me. In preg #3 I was feeling the baby move at 10 weeks. I've been feeling this one move already, too!(I'm 11 weeks) I have felt each baby earlier and earlier. It was confirmed with #3 when I went to the doctor and by now I know what it feels like and it's consistently in the same spot. I'm loving this :) I feel so lucky to have been able to feel my babies so early. When I was pregnant with #2, I felt her around 16 wks and one day I went to the doctor because it had been 2 days and I hadn't felt movement. The doctor checked her heartbeat, then went into the hall and laughed at me and made fun of me to a nurse for "thinking I felt the baby this early". It was humiliating. I knew what I was feeling.

 

I can't wait until the baby's big enough for our bebe sounds monitor to work! My husband hooked it to the guitar amp so it would be really loud and tested it. He's quite fun! So in a few weeks the baby's heartbeat will be booming throughout the house! ROTFLMAO.gif

I'm excited for others to be able to feel it!! My 8 year old(the baby) likes to feel my belly and talk and sing to the baby and I know she'll just be thrilled when she can feel it kicking her.

 

I noticed your kids' ages...Mine are 15, 14 and 8. When the baby gets here they will be 16, almost 15 and I'm due 2 weeks before the youngest's 9th birthday. It all feels crazy sometimes!

That is so cool that you're feeling your baby move already! During my pregnancy with DS, I started feeling him moving at 13 weeks. This was right after we had our first ultrasound and he was flipping around during the whole ultrasound. So I knew he was really mobile and it was so cool to start feeling it. But the next time I saw my OB, I told her that I was feeling the baby move (she asked) and she told me that it was probably just gas and then she marked on my chart that I was not feeling movement yet. irked.gif I can't wait to feel this baby move, but I'm only 7 weeks, so it'll probably be a little while yet.

I hate when they won't believe you...with #3 I showed them exactly where I was feeling her and they did find her right there. We aren't stupid, I hate it being blamed on gas! Maybe since you felt the last one so early you will be lucky this time, also! It's so exciting :) I laid in the bed last night and almost cried feeling him/her wiggling. It's not all the time or anything but yesterday was a really active day for the wee one!

I really like the dr we saw a few weeks ago, except he made a comment like "you won't feeling any movement until at least 16 weeks. Anything before that is gas". What?!? That's bull. I told dh when we left that I agreed with everything he had said except that. Sorry, but he doesn't have a uterus, how the h*ll can he tell women what they are and aren't feeling if he's never experienced it?

 

Can't wait to feel this one squiggling around! Though I probably won't mention it to the dr until after 16 weeks just to avoid any arguments eyesroll.gif

I was just going to post on this. Last pg I felt movement 10-11 wks, and my very senior OB totally believed me. In this pregnancy, I am now 7.5 weeks and can feel flutters, and have been since about 6 wks. Same spot, NOT gas! Any one else find this plausible?

That is exciting!!! I felt ds (#2) move around 12-13 weeks and I'm really hoping this one will be that early too. It still feels a little surreal that I'm actually pregnant (I mostly just feel like I have a perpetual hang over) so feeling the baby move will hopefully help that. I'm 10 weeks today so hopefully soon!

Baby 1 - 16 weeks

Baby 2 - 14 weeks

Baby 3 - 13 weeks

 

So I'm hoping another month or less and I'll feel this little monkey!

I'm glad there's others who felt it so early also! When I googled the subject I mostly got questions and answers where all the replies were telling the mom she was only feeling gas or her own pulse, it was all in her head, just condescending replies. I think it's totally possible to even feel it earlier but it be so faint we don't notice it or really do think it's just gas bubbles! My first was felt at 20 weeks, my second at 16 and my third at 10. I'm not telling many people that I've been feeling this one yet as I know most don't believe it.

Everyone else post when you do think you start feeling yours move, it's so exciting!! And it really helps make all the yuckiness/hangover feelings we've felt seem worth it :) This is REAL!!

I'm 13 weeks and I've started feeling random little tickles - there's really no other good way to describe it. Like being tickled from the inside out! I only feel it when I'm very still, when I've been sitting or laying down for awhile. It's definitely a very different feeling from having gas, in my opinion. But I absolutely cannot wait until I start feeling strong, regular movement - all the easily identifiable kicks and jabs. :-) It's worth all the constant sickness, I think.

I am 10 weeks and I KNOW I felt the baby the other day while laying in bed with DS. I had an anterior placenta with DS and really didn't feel movement until well into my pregnancy with him, so this is fun. I seem to remember it being called something; the little tickles, something like the quickening? Am I nuts, or has anyone heard it called this too?

I'm 10 weeks now & can't say I feel movement exactly but when I lie still I am very aware of a heavy throbbiness in my uterus.

I told my doctor I thought I felt my baby move, she said it was gas.  but if I sit still i can feel a weird fluttery tickle.  it makes me so excited! half the time i start crying.  I'm just so glad he/she is moving, it's reassuring.
