When did you first feel your baby move in a 2nd or 3rd pregnancy?

Just wondering how early you first felt your baby move after your first pregnancy. I'm 13+2 and think I might have felt the first twinges but it seems v early to me. You'd think that by my third pregnancy I would know for sure what it feels like but apparently not!

Felt pains under ribs at 16 weeks and nudges at 18, by 20 full on kicks constantly. This is my first but seems quite normal from what others said on here when I asked a few weeks ago. Hope that helps.

Some of the early twinges can be muscles moving making space for the growing uterus. The baby is usually too small to actually do anything early on but its still evidence of the pregnancy making itself known which I still find exciting smile

13-14 weeks for my 1st and 2nd, I'm very sensitive to the movements. Sounds like you are too!

I felt flutters (or 'bubbling' as I called it) from 12 weeks with my first...everyone said it was too early but it was most definitely the baby moving.

15 or so weeks with my 2nd, but not until 19/20 with this one (my 3rd) - turns out I have anterior, low lying placenta this time tho, so mvmts are being muffled.

Defo felt mvmt MUCH earlier 2nd time around compared to first....

15 weeks with number 2, was sat down having a cuppa with my Mum and she got hiccups! She then had them every evening for weeks.

17 weeks for DS

13 weeks for DC2 (due 14th July - eek) - DH could feel the movements from the outside with this one from 16 weeks so he or she is a feisty little thing

Flutters at 14 weeks with this one (my third).

Now at 19 weeks definite kicks that can even be felt from the outside.

17/18 with dd but i was definitely feeling movement from 13 weeks with this one smile

1st about 18 weeks
2nd (twins) about 14 weeks
3rd (twins) the night before the scan so 13 weeks.

13 weeks with no2. People said it was too soon, but that feeling just got stronger til they were proper kicks. Chances are, it is baby you're feeling

they say after youve had more than 1 baby its sooner.

With DD2 i felt the butterfly's or as i like to call it tickling at 12weeks,
kicks was 16weeks

wearenotinkansas Mon 13-Jun-11 13:35:46

can't remember when but it was early. Around 13 weeks I think.

pozzled Mon 13-Jun-11 13:38:10

About 14 weeks for me.

sodthehousework Mon 13-Jun-11 13:43:47

about 16 weeks just little flutters (only knew that was the baby because this is my 2nd) and stronger movements 18-20 weeks. Placenta is high and at the front so that might hide some of the kicks perhaps.
