This is my 3rd child. With my first two I could feel movement but not this big this early. I can even feel it from the outside. Today the baby did such a big flip that I screamed becasue it startled me. Anyone else have this and is this normal this early?

This is also my third.
With DS1 I felt movement from the outside at 16 weeks, same day as my dh. This time I have felt some small ones for the past month or so, even seeing my belly move a little, but the really big ones have been the past 1-2 weeks. And they aren't all the time, just like when I pick up a giant stack of books and he kicks them out of the way! lol

I went from feeling very little to feeling a lot and big kicks and jabs visible from the outside all at once....all around 19 weeks. It is such an awesome feeling! With DD, I felt her more and more often earlier, but not the big movements. I think I was further along before I could see the outside movements.

19.5 weeks! I was getting worried about not feeling movement...until today. It must be an age thing (baby age) because my little man started tumbling around to where I could feel it.

He's currently doing something in a downward motion...

DDCC - not this time (anterior placenta, didnt feel movements like that until closer to the late 20s in weeks!) but with my second indeed I did! Started wondering if I had a baby or an octopus in there!

19.5w here, and I have visible movement. It's crazy...I've definitely not had movement like this so early before, and I was super skinny when I concieved my last theoretically, I should have felt/seen movement earlier then.
