When did you feel your second move and when did you start to show?

I am 20 weeks with DS2...only really started feeling them a couple of weeks ago and nowhere near as strong as DS1.

Had my scan a week ago and turns out I've got placenta previa which explains it all...MW said that some people really won't feel much when they have that. So maybe that's what's going on?

DP and I both felt kicks last night! Just little taps but they were strong enough that DP turned round at the same time I did a bit shock.

Felt first movements at 16weeks and started showing at about 10-12 weeks was very bloated before so really hard to tell.

But as everyone else has said everyones.bodys and babies are diffrent, it will happen soon im sure smile

I didn't feel this one move till 21 weeks, due to position of placenta. With ds1 it was more like 18 wks. Probably only started to show properly about the same time when I suddenly grew. Looking at old photos I am about the same as first pregnancy, definitely not showing any earlier.

I felt this baby move at exactly 13 weeks. DH could feel it at 18 weeks. Was bloated pretty much from the start and thought I looked pregnant from about 8 weeks. Probably didn't look obviously pregnant to strangers until 5-6 months. Before that just looked fat.

I am 19 + 2 with dc 2. Have a prominent bump but not certain I have felt any movement. It has been worrying me because so many people say they felt no2 very early. Also bump is mainly cake and testimony to my lack of stomach crunches after dc1!

Last week at an unrelated appointment I made GP listen for a hb which was fine and he also made it clear he thought nothing to worry about and only listened to set my mind at rest. Today I spoke to a friend who is 29 weeks with dc2 and massive - she said she felt nothing until at least a week after 20 week scan.

So I understand your concern but think nothing to worry about (so says she!).

Beckie There's lots of people I haven't told yet too.

soupmaker You're right, they are all different. I think I will stop stressing!

I'm 18 weeks and just starting to feel movement. I managed to 'hide' my pregnancy until about a week ago and now I have a definite bump. Into maternity jeans in the last couple of days. I didn't show with DD until about 6 months so this is a bit of a shocker. Just goes to show they are all different.

Very daunting. I still havnt told anyone I'm that shocked lol x

Beckie Daunting, isn't it?

Mrs Starting to feel better now, knowing lots of people felt movements later.

DS was back to back as well, and lay at my back. Maybe this one is the same.

Felt movement much later with ds2 (22 weeks rather than 17 iirc) because of the position re: placenta. Got bigger much, much earlier though.

Yea thats prob y too if you was later on with your 1st child. Cause I was 16wk with first so quite early then too. So don't worry bout that smile and the showing thing its really not a bad thing, I was 35wk by time I got a bump which even then just looked like I'd eaten a big meal lol and he was born a pretty impressive 9ib. Ds3 now I'm currently 17wk with no bump still, mine was also a shock so understand exactly what u mean xx

My last was 6lb1oz, not sure about water but I had ARM and exploded all over the Doctor, there was loads.

Perhaps it's the same this time then.

I showed earlier with dd2 and was lower with her. But had to do that counting 10 moves a day. Dd1 was very active. My dd2 was in alot of " water" and also small 1 week early 5:5 lbs where as dd1 was a week late little water 6:10 lbs so just baby

We realised that dd2 couldnt hit the sides. Plus she was saving her engery for when she got out. Shes at right wriggle puss even now at 15

I've just seen a vacancy for an internship at MN.

I now really wish I had went to Uni. sad

Isitme1 Thanks for replying, I was around 23 weeks when I felt my first so maybe it will be the same this time. smile

Im 20 weeks tomorrow and I started feeling movement's a few days ago x

My 20 week scan is on the 11th and have already had 2 scans (first was about a week too early and wouldn't give a clear picture).

MW also listened in at my 16wk appointment and all was fine.

I think it's just because I keep seeing posts on here about being massive with the second and feeling them really early. I told my housing officer I was pregnant today and she had no idea, even though I will be 5 months next week and was wearing a tight top, she seemed shocked.

It was a very surprise pregnancy and I have struggled to accept it, I think it's making it harder as I haven't had any pregnancy symptoms and don't look or feel pregnant so it's not sinking in really.

Thanks. smile

It's different for everyone depending on babys position placenta position etc, but my second I felt early flutters from around 13wk but didn't show till past 30wk. There is no normal time really smile you will have your scan soon? So that will put your mind at ease x

Anyone?

Currently 19 weeks with DC2 and haven't felt anything yet, not showing at all yet either. sad

How far along were you when you felt movements and started to show?
