I felt my first DD moving pretty earlier than some mothers (16weeks according to my pregnancy journal).  And with my second DD just a little sooner (15 weeks).  But I swear it feels like I can feel the baby moving already but I'm not even 11 weeks yet.  It really does feel like the fluttering sensation I remember with my DDs.  Is it really possible to feel so early on??  I am a rather petite person but I just didn't think you could feel the baby move before 13 weeks...

At 10 weeks the baby is about the size of a lipstick tube and able to move well... so you never know! I think it's possible. Many people I know said they feel the baby weeks earlier with future pregnancies because they know what to watch for.

It was few and far between, but I felt mine around 9 or 10 weeks at first. Usually in the middle of the night when I would wake up. Although it's not until this week (about 17 weeks) that I am feeling the baby move regularly.

Yes, it's usually in the night that I notice it.  Maybe I'm not going crazy then ;)

Nope, it's possible. I felt it at 10 weeks this time and I wasn't sure at first, but retrospectively, yes, it was definitely movement.

You're definitely not crazy. This is my 1st and I felt the baby move right before 10 weeks. Everyone thought I was crazy except my MW. I know now that it was the baby because the same movements have only gotten stronger and more often. It started off as only a light rolling sensation and it has progressively gotten stronger...definitely not digestive!

I felt #1 at 16 weeks, #2 at 15 weeks, and #3 at 10 weeks! Totally possible :)
