With my first 2, I felt definate flutters at not much past 12 weeks, even though both had anterior placentas. This time, I seem to have bypassed the flutter stage completely and have had regular big wallops from 17 weeks.

At 16 weeks I felt something but wasn't sure. At 18 weeks I knew.

13, nearly 14 weeks. At my 16 week appointment he kicked the midwife who was palpating my abdomen. She was rather surprised.

Anyone earlier than 12 weeks? I mean the goldfish/butterfly flutters, not actual kicks.

Felt a kick with 15 weeks and a little fluttering in week 13.

With this pregnancy I felt flutters at 12+2 (the evening before my scan). I don't remember with my first because I think I discounted what I was feeling at that time. I have come across some people who are dubious about it being possible to feel movement that early, but whatever the sensation is I have never had it at any other time than that stage of pregnancy!

11wks with my 3rd

DC2 suspected flutters at 13 weeks, definite flutters at 15 weeks, getting kicks at 17 weeks, and at 20 weeks I can feel kicks through my skin when I put my hand there.

since about 14 weeks ish for me. my first pregnancy. now 19+3 and they are more pokes/thuds now!

11+5/6. Could tell where LO was bashing me at scan. Anterior placenta too, but she was v. low down then.
People kept telling me I was wrong/it must be wind. It was baby.Like bubble gum popping...
Definite hoovings at 16wks.
Now 27+6 and she's bashing about at a rate of anything between 60-150 movements a day!

About week 19.

organiccarrotcake Tue 25-Oct-11 20:12:31

So about 11 weeks then? smile

Oeisha Tue 25-Oct-11 20:14:49

It's not unusual not to feel anything until 22wks plus, esp it you have an anterior placenta...so, well...I wouldn't worry if you don't get any movement sooner.

It's not so much that, as, well, I've conceived while BFing my toddler, and on my first cycle (before I've had a period). We were TTC but as I've no way of tracking when I did, I'm now trying to work out when it happened! We only found out on Monday, and I'm noticing what I am sure are movements but I really can't be 12 weeks or so, I'm sure!!! It's mad.

Booking in appointment on Friday so I will see what the best way forward is. Very excited although I'll be sad to have missed a whole 3 months of knowing I'm diffed!

It's DC3 so I am reasonably confident that I know what I'm feeling smile
