Earliest possible movement?

I'm 13 + 5 and in the last couple of days I've been sure I can feel some movement, normally when I'm lying in bed. It's an irregular flicker, a bit like I've swallowed a fly (!) This is my first pg, am I being ridiculous and it's just a new and exciting manifestation of wind?

No, not ridiculous at all. I could feel similar at that stage, it's a funny feeling, but nice smile

No definitely possible. I felt this flickering very early, around 12 or 13 weeks I think. More likely apparently if you are quite thin (I was super skinny from hyperemesis).

I felt this too! It was like a light tapping feeling but from the inside, but similar to butterflies :s... But I've had it twice and it's for about 5 seconds each time! So weird! X

I think this is the stage the uterus has just about popped out so you can start feeling movement if you're lucky. I waited for 20 weeks first time around (which felt endless). THis time, without expecting it at all, two little kicks in the same spot at 13 weeks. Sure and certain it was LO....though DH and everyone else thought I was a loon grin.

Thanks everyone smile very giddy now. LeBFG my DH thinks I'm nuts too but I'm convinced, such a strange sensation!
