Seriously, this is my third baby. You'd think that I would know if it was a real kick or not. I sure thought it was....but now I doubt myself and keep analyzing every little twitch I have.<br>
I'll be 15 weeks on Thursday...this is the right time or just slightly early, right? I realize I could go look this up, but I also know that somebody here has my answer and I'm lazy!

I'm exactly going through the same thing! I know I felt my first baby at 16 weeks or so, can't remember when with my second and third. Now I'm on my fourth pregnancy, about 16 weeks 1 day and thinking...was that a kick? was that one?<br><br>
I keep feeling micro movements that could be or maybe it's wishful thinking and it's gas. gah!

I know what you mean. I'm only 13 weeks, but I've felt a few tiny little things that might be baby moving-- I can't wait for the stage where baby moves all the time.

I've been wondering the same... lol I've had definite movements that I knew for sure but then there are the occasional twitches and bumps that I question. Can't wait for the next few weeks when babe gets bigger and more defined movements start happening. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

I'm also constantly wondering! Today, while my MW was looking for baby's heartbeat, baby kicked right there so we both heard it and I felt it clearly. But another kick we heard I'm not entirely sure if I felt (I think I did, but lighter). And the feelings I've thought were good kicks in the last couple of weeks were stronger than what I felt today. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/headscratch.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="headscratch"> So I dunno... I am DEFINITELY looking forward to the baby getting bigger and giving stronger movements! It doesn't feel like it will happen at this point, but, surely it will! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I'll join the club! I swear I'm feeling baby, but I'm only just over 14 weeks, and with my first I didn't feel movement until 19 weeks! It feels too early to be feeling movement already, but it also really feels like movement! I'm going with "yes it's movement" because that makes me happy <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

I'm 13w5d and I KNOW I've had some kicks. A few everyday that are definitely not gas or other things....I'm smaller and my babies tend to come early. I seem to remember something about babies arrive x-number of weeks after quickening as a good guide....and I've always felt movement early.<br><br>
Of course, I have a lot of dreams that seem pretty scientific in nature, so maybe that's where I heard this....

I feel the same way. When I feel something in my left lower quadrant, I'm pretty sure it's the baby, because that seems to be where I've been feeling the most distinct flutterings, little kicks and nudges. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy"> Otherwise, I just think I've been really gassy! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">

i didn't feel my first *for sure* until 19 weeks. actually i had probably been feeling it for a week or so beforehand, i was just dismissing it as gas bubbles or other digestive rumblings. so i am totally overanalyzing every little sensation now. i am 13 weeks today and can't wait for the movements!!

I'm positive I've been feeling little kicks lately. Probably within the last week. I'm 15 weeks now. Also, I find that differentiating between gas and baby is pretty easy. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> I'm glad that mostly everybody else is just as confused as me. I have an appointment tomorrow and I know that she's ask. I guess I'll just tell her maybe! The sensation was 3 distinct bumps in a row at the dinner table. I'm sure that I've felt some stretching sensations (like a cat getting comfortable) but the kicks haven't been repeated.

Since this is my first, I've been really jealous of everyone saying they've already felt their LOs move. I just don't even know what it will feel like. I'm sure it's been happening, but I just haven't noticed it yet. This morning I was sitting really still and could hear and feel the bubbles in my tummy, but then I felt a sort of "bump" a lot lower. It didn't feel like gas, either. So now I'm thinking maybe that was a kick, but I don't really know. I would love to start feeling the baby move now because alot of my other symptoms are lessening... except for my expanding belly, I just don't "feel" as pregnant as I have before.

That may have been a kick! The first sensations I had with my first were actually whooshes. They first happened when I rolled over at night and I would feel a whooosh... It won't be long!<br><br>
With this one I felt my first kicks or bumps just this morning. Before it was always definately gas, but these were bumps. I'm 15w4d.

I vote yes! I've been feeling mine bump around in there for awhile, though some days nothing at all, and others lots of little fluttery kicks. Last night the little bean was very busy. lol

Does anyone notice a time of day that their bean is most active?? For me it seems at night, like around 8 or 9 lol. Was hoping that wasn't a sign of things to come.

I'm 16 weeks and I've been wondering for a while if I'm feeling anything or not. Sometimes I feel these little bubbles, but it may just be a fart in waiting, I don't know! I really wish I had written down at what point I felt kicks with DD, I have no idea but I'm getting impatient.

I'm only 13w3d but definitely feeling movements. I also felt ds very early. Right now they are definitely more active in the evenings. Last week i had an u/s and one of the babies did a HUGE flip during the scan that made me jump!
