The more kids you have had, have you felt them sooner? Have you had braxton hicks sooner?
I'm only 11wks and I swear I keep feeling Puppet move. Not only that, but today I felt definite braxton hicks. I remember them starting around 13wks with my last baby but this is strange.

Nope, not me. I am 18 weeks along with number 10 and felt this one for the first time this morning . It was so light, if I hadn't been laying on my belly I would have missed it.

Yes, although with my last baby, he was more chill and I didn't feel him as early. #3 was the soonest around 13/14 weeks and go figure, he's my busiest kid. Walking at 7 months, running at 8. Yeah the kid is never still

First off congrats on your pregnancy!!
I have felt some of them earlier, with my last one I didnt feel her move till later than most of the others, obviously Im not a doctor, but I have heard that the positioning of the placenta can make a difference on that ( could be wrong )

I know im my own experience with my pregnancies, I just recongnise the movement easier now.

The BH, I hope its nothing serious but I would at least mention it to your OB GYN.

Again congrats and I hope you have a happy and healthly pregnancy.

I have felt my babies move at varying times. This one has been the latest, and I just discovered a little over a week ago that I have an anterior placenta. I really thought everyone was kind of making it up about what a difference it makes, but obviously not. With my second, I felt her consistently around 13 weeks, but she was the earliest.

It's been different for all of mine, but I've never felt them early.

My #3 freaked me out all the time, I didn't feel her move until 20 weeks, and I would never feel her move during the day, at night I'd sit on the couch and poke at my belly to get her to move. She is still my quietest child.

I didn't feel my first till about 18-20 weeks. But with my other three, I felt them all between 11-13 weeks.

As for the BH- I never had those early, just SERIOUS cramps when I "O." Be sure you are getting plenty of water and rest! And Magnesium supplements can help with BH too (if you were in the 3rd trimester, I'd say kick back with a glass of wine, but it's a bit early for that).

I generally don't feel baby until around 20w, with Canaan I felt him around 14w though.

my first I didn't feel until after 20 weeks, my second I felt at about 18 weeks, my next pregnancy I was feeling something by 14 weeks, this pregnancy I started feeling by 10 weeks. I know for sure thats what I was feeling and nothing else.

I didn't notice my braxton hicks in my first two pregnancies, last pregnancy I started feeling them at about 27 weeks but was in labor at 29 weeks and delivered at 31. This pregnancy I have been having really strong braxton hicks for weeks already so I would say I was probably about 24 weeks or 25 weeks when they started hard and consistant.
