I felt this baby at 9 weeks 4 days for the first time. Seemed crazy at the time but it was obvious- at least to me. I've felt it on and off since then but in the last week its been daily. I think it was about 13-14 weeks last time.

With my first pregnancy I was 16-17 weeks when I first felt her. It was earlier than that with the last two. I am just starting to feel the baby now and I will be 14 weeks this coming week. Sometimes I think it might be gas or whatever but this evening I have been feeling something different and I really think it is the baby, like a little fish brushing against me or something.

Definitely started feeling flutters last week. I was skeptical because with DD it seemed like forever -- maybe week 18ish? But they are there and it is so exciting. DD was so chill in utero. I wonder if I feel flutters because this one is more active..so maybe it's a boy and maybe won't give me a heart attack by arriving 2.5 weeks past my due date. Okay, I'm really stretching here but I like to be optimistic! And one more stretch...if it's a boy, maybe he will be a little more chill than big sis who is the ruler of the universe and making me take really deep breaths these days.

Last night when I startled the baby with the doppler I could hear it moving a lot, and then it thumped loudly and I swear I could feel a light pop/bubble feeling.

10 weeks has to be too soon though, the baby can't be that strong, right? I am really thin, but still. After that I kept feeling not-gas bubbly feelings off and on for half an hour in that same spot.

i felt the baby for a while last night. just kicking and scratching and moving a whole lot. just constant for at least a minute. i think i even felt a head butt. i say it's more like light caresses but from the inside and quicker.

I've been uncertain till now, but I feel I can pretty confidently say that the little internal nudges I have been feeling today are baby
We're 14 weeks tomorrow.

Wow, I can't wait to feel baby! I haven't felt anything like what you are all saying, but I am only 11 1/2 weeks so am not expecting anything for a while.

But at my 9 week ultrasound the tech mentioned that I would probably feel it sooner than most because the baby was positioned toward the back of my uterus? Not sure what the term for that is, anyone know? Can't wait to feel it move, I have another ultrasound tomorrow so I will see what happens!

No neg comments here! Some days a Pepsi is the only thing that keeps me from vomiting, and I always drink about half of one before our anatomy ultrasounds so that baby is active and they can get all the pictures they need in one visit.
