<p><span>I never feel it as "butterflies" or "flutters" though.  Hard to describe.  I remember later in my last pregnancy when DD was big, and flipping around a lot, I felt like I had a salmon in my belly!  :)</span></p>

<p>Well, I didn't have time to read everything, but with my last child (4th) I didn't feel anything until closer to 20 wks. I've been borderline underweight when I've gotten pg everytime too. I know I felt my 2nd at 16 wks and my 1st at 18 wks. Can't for the life of me remember when I first felt my 3rd. This time around I haven't felt anything for sure yet. I'm 14.5 wks.</p>

me too.. but what is REALLY blowing my mind is that all these other mamas can still lie on their stomachs.  i am huge.  HUGE!  like... at 3 months, complete strangers should NOT feel comfortable asking about the baby. </p>

<p>Thanks to the above tip to lie on your stomach, I felt the baby moving around early this morning!!! I've been feeling little things for the past few days, but figured it was gas or my stomach grumbling - but now I know it was the baby rolling around in there. I'm VERY surprised to feel anything this early (14w2d), since I didn't feel DS until around 18-19 weeks (and the movements at that stage were much more pronounced) - but maybe that's because I know what to look for this time around?</p>

<p>Well, I lay on my stomach almost every night for a while at least and I still don't feel anything. I think I'll stop reading this too. :(</p>

<p>I thought I felt something the other day... however it was the wheel of cheese I ate just letting me know how stupid I was... REGRET! </p>
<p>Though I really hope I feel something soon.  I was 17 wks with DH1,  I was walking down a hill in Monterey and I felt was felt to me like a rubber band being plucked.  DH2... I don't remember.  I may have been 15 to 16 weeks.  I had some many complications with her that all I cared about was getting to a safe stage.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>This one, I hope soon.  I want the girls to feel him/her. </p>

<p>I'm thinking maybe I didn't really feel movement since it was a week or two ago and I've been more attentive since then and haven't felt anything.  I hope I start feeling something soon!</p>

<p>I'm 14 weeks and  started feeling movement last week or the week before.  With my 5 year old, I was able to feel him at about 13 weeks, but DH didn't until about 16 weeks.  DH can feel this baby.  I am anxious for our first OB appt on Tuesday.  I want to see what exactly is going on in there! :LOL:</p>

As of this week, I'm not comfortable lying on my stomach anymore - and I'm a stomach sleeper by nature, so now I have to retrain myself to fall asleep on my side.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I think my being able to feel the baby this early has something to do with his/her location because my MW had absolutely no problem finding the heartbeat at my appt on Wed - within seconds of the doppler thing touching my stomach we heard the heartbeat (it used to take her quite awhile to find DS's hb at this stage and she usually had to search around for it). So she wasn't surprised that I was feeling the baby this early!</p>

<p>OMG I think I felt the baby move around last night.   I need to put my hand on my tummy not to feel it through my hands but to focus that way somehow... it is SO hard to distinguish from just general indigestion... it is sort of a popping and shifting around inside... but I am 80% sure this was baby movement!  (I am 17w2d)</p>

<p>I felt undeniable baby movements for the first time a few days ago.  It felt like I had a fish swimming in my belly, haha.  Now all those little bubbles and pops that I wasn't sure of (I thought it was probably just gas) are starting to become more regular and I am pretty sure it is the baby.  Exciting!</p>

<p>I haven't felt movement that i'm sure of recently,   but I do feel pressure movements-  could be baby or intestines- it's hard to say.  I can't wait for definite baby movements, it's so reassuring.   I'm 14 weeks, almost 15.     (Also happy if this baby is calmer than #1 and wants to wait a little while, that's ok too!!)</p>
