When did you all feel quickening with your other pregnancies, or have any of you felt it yet this time? I can't wait! I know it's still early, but I am so excited. The baby moving is pretty much my favorite part of pregnancy! How much earlier should I expect it since this is my second, anyone know?

With my DS, I first felt it at 14-15 weeks but at the time I wasn't sure if that's what it was. I kept feeling those movements though, and then the first time I felt real kicks was 18 weeks.

I tend to feel them pretty early, but 8w6d is a little too early

Haha, I guess I'm one of the furthest along here. 10 weeks. I'm just so excited for movement though!

I can't wait either! The first trimester is looong and without many rewards. I feel sick most of the time, haven't heard or seen the little one and am def looking forward to that constant and beautiful reminder that someone is indeed taking shape

I will be 10 wks on Sunday. I felt first at 15 weeks and second at 12 weeks. Midwife said that was because I am thin so we will see this time. Hopefully it is near the 12 week mark.

With my first it was around 18 weeks and with my second it was around 11 weeks. I was much thinner the second time around which is why I think I felt that one so early. This time, not so much.

This is my 5th child, and I keep feeling twinges now and then which seem so much like fetal movement, but I know it must be too early. Weird, right? My mind must be playing tricks on me!

I have been having this too. I'm only 9 weeks though so it's way too early.

I could have sworn I felt something yesterday not long after posting this thread! I was probably just thinking about it too much but I suppose it's possible. Soon! Excited to hear so many of you felt it as early as 12 weeks!

I was 10 weeks yesterday and I SWEAR I've been feeling faint little flutters and bumps all week. I know it's "supposed" to be too early, but I also know what I'm feeling.

with my first, I felt the first flutters I was sure of around 15ish weeks, I think? I can't remember exactly, but I do remember I was feeling him kick every day by 18 weeks, and DH felt him by 19 weeks...

with my 2nd, I felt the first whisper right around 12-13 weeks...I had an anterior placenta, though, so constant/consistent movement was a little bit later

#1 10.5 weeks
#2 17 weeks
#3 10-11 weeks
#4 (this one) I felt a bit in my 10-11th week, and I'm feeling it off and on now... but it's still very light. I'm so distracted all the time that I'm not sure what I'm feeling!

This is baby #5, pregnancy #7 and I am 10weeks and have felt some movement. I think with #4 I was about 11.5 weeks when I felt it for the first time.

I'm not 100% on my dates. I didn't have a LMP so much as a few days of spotting so I went by that, when I feel like I ovulated (based on libido alone upsidedown.gif ) and when I got my BFP. I like to have an EDD, small goals to reach, so based on all that I made mine 10 Jun which puts me at 10w1d today. It could change based on future ultrasound but I honestly don't think it'll be very off. My point! I have a point here somewhere and it's that last night and tonight I had moments of huh? hmmm? maybe? was that movement? Just the slightest whisper love.gif

This is so cool to read! Could someone try to explain in detail what it feels like? Please? I think it'll help me recognize it earlier. I'm 9 weeks and thin so hoping I get to feel the little bean early, maybe in a few weeks...

 

Thanks!

With pregnancy #1 the first movement I recognized was at about 14 weeks. I had actually been feeling movement for about a week here and there but didn't recognize it yet. It was that funny little feeling that made you wonder if it was the baby or gas. :P Pregnancy #2 was around 12 weeks. Feeling the baby move is so incredible! I can't wait to feel the first little flutters with this little one!

It feels like there is a small butterfly fluttering in your abdomen.  It usually is only once in awhile at first and you will question it. But it picks up and then you know really soon as it becomes kicks *LOL*

I am 11w3d.  I REALLY think I felt the baby today while driving.  I had been active and moving around, and I settled into my seat and right below my belly button I felt a little poke--from the inside!  I've been feeling funny flutters, but I know many of them have been my imagination, indigestion, etc.  This is the first time I've really been certain.  I hope I'm not going crazy! :)

I think I usually feel movement around 12 weeks, but with my last pregnancy, I actually saw movement at 15 weeks.  It was wild.  Dh and I sat and watch for about 15 minutes.  It was crazy.  The baby must have been in exactly the right spot.  So, I'm sure it's possible to feel flutters way way earlier.

I am 11w 3d too and swear I felt flutters. I say it because if it was gas it would be more frequent and more than just a brief flutter. Time will tell.
