I swear I just felt the baby kick! The dog was laying on my stomach & the baby gave him 2 gentle kicks & the dog jumped & moved away! He thought I did it! He looked at me all crazy. I am 13 weeks. Anyone else feeling movement already.

I felt some movement at 10 wks and thought I was crazy. Then this week I felt it again but more distinct and I knew it was the baby. Definitely nothing that would be felt on the outside but it was cool to know I felt my baby so early. I honestly was skeptical of all the women that said they felt their babies move so early, but just goes to show me, my little peanut is definitely giving me taps!

no, I'm really getting anxious about it too. I'm 17 weeks now, this is my 4th pregnancy. I had a miscarriage at 14 weeks with the last one. I need the near constant reassurance that kicking brings. and I need it soon.

I am feeling movements (I am about 16 wks), but only when I am not trying to feel them. It seems the WO knows when I am still and looking for the movements, so she is quiet and hiding at that time. Only when I am busy and active does she move around.

I love the quiet moments when you lay down and just "listen" to the little one move around. I can't wait until she will move when I am looking for it.

Any misspellings or grammatical errors in the above statement are intentional;
they are placed there for the amusement of those who like to point them out.

I'm 14w3d and not feeling anything distinctly baby yet. Mostly gas . I didn't feel movement until 17w5d with my dd, so I don't expect to feel anything for another two weeks or so.

Everytime I think I feel something, it turns out to be gas

This is my 2nd pregnancy. I am 15 weeks and I haven't felt any movement yet. I REALLY want to start feeling the little one move.

Well here I am, approaching 16 weeks and yes, I've felt flutters and buzzing and rolling for over a week now for sure. I started off as I usually do with the "buzzing" sensation, then in my 14th week, it turned into something a bit more tangible.

So yes - but I know what you mean when you say you only feel movement when you're not trying! That, combined with the weakness of the movements and sometimes it feels so tiny and then you wait for it to happen again...sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't lol

I'm 18 weeks and don't feel a lot of movement. Every couple days. It seems like I felt more movement in the earlier weeks. I have an anterior placenta, so that makes it harder to feel movement. The movements are muffled. :sigh:

I was told not to expect to feel movement consistently until maybe 22 weeks. I think I had a posterior placenta with my other babies.

I haven't felt any movement yet. I'm 13 weeks into my first pregnancy and I've started losing my 1st trimester symptoms, but haven't "popped" or felt movement or anything baby yet. It's weird because it's easy to forget that I'm actually pregnant. Looking forward to feeling movement for some reassurance that everything in there is fine.

I am 16 weeks and thought I felt a few taps a couple days ago. I thought maybe it was wishful thinking, but early this morning I caught some flutters and I am pretty sure this was baby and not intestinal churning. :

I started feeling little flutters at about 13 weeks. I am now 15 wks 4 days and now I can definetly feel taps, but just when I don't try to feel them.

But last night we got into bed, and I kept telling my hubby that I coldn't wait until he felt the baby move. So when she sarted kicking around I took his hand and he was able to feel about 3 kicks...you should of seen the look on his face...priceless...he kept saying "I felt my baby!!!" ::

At 17 weeks I think I felt something here and there, but it is hard to tell still. This is my first pregnancy, so I'm not certain about anything.

I've been feeling occasional movement for a couple weeks now. it's not soft little flutters either, its very sharp and jarring ie jump out of your seat type of movement.

Nothing distinct yet. Everything is possibly gas. I felt movement at 16 weeks exactly with my son, and I will be 15 weeks in a couple of days, so hopefully soon!

I thought I did a couple weeks ago, but it was so early I wouldn't believe it and I haven't felt anything since. Though, at this time in my last pregnancy even my husband could feel the kicks. When I did think I felt it a couple weeks ago I was laying on my stomach for a prolonged time getting a massage. I wondered if the baby was just like "Hey mom! I am getting a little squished here. Move already!"

last week I felt a few VERY distinct "kicks" (or pokes or whatever, who knwos what body part it was at this stage?), and I think i've maybe felt something that was possibly baby since then, but nothing for sure.

I can ONLY feel anything if I'm laying on my back and being very still- like, when I'm tryign to fall asleep. So sometimes I'm not sure if I'm dreaming it or not (you know that half awake/ half asleep stage where you can dream the things that you want to happen?)

I'm feeling lots of movement - kicks and rolls all over the place. Started feeling flutters at 12 weeks, I'm 16 today, but I'm measuring about 4 weeks ahead. DH really wants an ultrasound, as twins run in my family.

Little taps/bumps, and an occasional rolllll. They started around 16 weeks, but only every few days and only at bedtime when I was lying still. Now they're a little more frequent -- maybe once a day now? -- but still only when I'm reclining, esp at bedtime. (Ah yes, I remember this now from last time -- you lie down, exhausted, to sleep, and that's when the little darlings perk up and KICK you.)

Still, I luuurrrrrrrve this part. Bring on the kicks!

I have the random tap here and there. They're distinct from the feeling of gas and low in my abdomen, but still really infrequent. I'm only about 14 weeks, but I'm getting impatient for more regular movement! Of course, in a few months I'll probably be wishing for some relief from the bumps and thumps.

If I lay on my tummy, I feel a few little flutters - more definite this morning that was not followed by gas so I am sure that is what it is. I am sure it will continue to be sporadic. I felt my 1st at 16 wks and I am midway through my 15th week so right on schedule I think! :
