I know this is t really about natural birth.. But I feel like I'll get honest answers here..

What's the earliest you believe people really feel movement from their babies??

I felt my 4th at 13 weeks and that was a lot sooner than any of the others. For a week I thought I was crazy but it just kept happening and getting stronger, so I couldn't really deny it. I have heard other women say 12 weeks but I would doubt any sooner than that.

If I hadn't experienced it so early, I would be inclined to think anyone who said they felt their baby before 15 weeks was crazy.

I guess I've heard as early as 10/11, but then I don't generally ask. I've only heard times here on JM. I have to wonder how many early movements are actually gas or something.

I think for me it was 12ish weeks, but that was one little bump that was hardly recognizable. Had it not been where it was I don't think I would have known it from Bob. Given all the things that seem to be able to block/"muffle" fetal movements it surprises me that they can be felt so early from such tiny humans.

I know for certain I have never felt movement before 15 weeks. During my previous pregnancy I swore I felt a "bump" at about 12 weeks, but that was only like two days before we found out the baby had stopped developing at six weeks; obviously what I "recognized" as first movement was something else.

I started feeling him around 11 or 12 weeks. I wasn't positive it was him, but then they kept getting stronger. DH felt him move on the outside a lot earlier too, like 15-16 weeks, whereas it was like 20 weeks with DD.

This is my 5th baby and I have been feeling it move sense 11 weeks. I know it was the baby as I had an ultrasound and could feel the baby move during it when it was moving on the screen. I had been feeling it before then too.

10/11 weeks at the clinic I work at quite often. The earliest I have felt is at 11 weeks.

Ditto, around 11 weeks for me this time. It's been different every time, but this time was very consistent and just got stronger until I *knew* for sure that's what I had been feeling.

I'm not even quite 10w and I swear I feel flutters quite frequently. Especially after I drink apple juice...I didn't feel anything with my first until 21w, and with Hunter nothing until 17-18w...but I feel this pretty much daily

I felt my this baby at 13 weeks once. Then 14 weeks once, then 15 weeks and then it was almost daily from there. But it always felt the same and I knew exactly what it was when I felt it. I think with my first it was at 17 weeks and with my second it was 15 weeks.

I felt my first around 17-18 weeks. This one was 15w but it's not consistent and I'm honestly not even sure if it's the baby this time. I can't imagine feeling something at 11w.

I felt one tiny kick in bed at about 16 weeks, and then I didn't feel anything more until about 26 weeks.

15-16 weeks. With all eleven that has been the absolute earliest.
