I don't remember when I first felt my daughter. I know it can be sooner for second-timers. I just can't wait!!

With DD I didn't feel her for sure until 18-19 weeks because I had an anterior placenta. I could've SWORN I felt flutters the other day but I'm pretty sure I was imagining things, lol. I hope I feel baby sooner this time!

I felt Carter at 17 weeks. I hope I can feel this little one around 15 weeks which is the earliest they say you can feel it.

You know, I didn't dare to say it but sometimes when I have been sitting and my pants are tight on my lower stomach I swear I can feel the slightest flutter right where she was looking with the ultrasound. I have no clue if it's really what I am feeling but I never felt anything like it, only when I was preggo before. It only has happened a few times. Maybe just my uterus stretching but I like to think it was a little movement!!

I felt DS1 for sure at 18 weeks. DS2 was much earlier at 14 weeks! Like I for sure felt him kick that early. It wasn't very consistent or anything until 17-18 weeks though. I definitely think you feel it sooner with subsequent pregnancies, you know what to look (or feel) for.

With first DS I think it was 18 weeks (right before my anatomy scan) with the second it was a bit earlier like 15-16 weeks. I don't expect to feel this little one until 15 or 16

I didn't feel my first until 22wks. The earliest I've felt anything was 12wks but it was only a couple times when I was leaning forward squishing my stomach. I for sure felt kicks at 14wks.

With Leiland I was 18 weeks on my way to see tangled.

With Ruth I never felt it (had her at 21 weeks) but my placenta was anterior.

With DS it was around 4 months in that I started feeling him flutter. We'll see if it's sooner with this one.

It was 17 weeks with Lily, but I definitely felt flutters at 12 weeks with Abri. I'm anxious to feel something with this one, but know I have a few more weeks still

The earliest I've felt movement with any of mine was 15 weeks. Last time I was pregnant I thought FOR SURE I felt "flutters" at about 12 weeks but later found out that was absolutely impossible.

I felt the first flutters with DD at 16 wks but it didn't become consistant until about 18wks. I can't wait to feel this baby move. Feeling baby move is my favorite parts of pregnancy!

Felt my first one at 11 weeks. The placenta was placed right at the top of my uterus so I could feel any and all movements. I didn't think I was feeling the baby but it definitely wasn't gas. As my pregnancy continued and the flutters did too I knew exactly what it was.

I thought i felt a flutter this time at 11 weeks but I've had a lot of stomach troubles. But over the weekend I definitely felt him or her So, 12 weeks with this one (placenta is also placed directly at top).
