I'm only 15 weeks but I swear every know and then I feel something, but its not strong enough to know if its baby or not.

Its totally different to a muscle spasms.

I've got a friend who swears she could feel her second from about 12 weeks!

Yes, before 14 weeks I think with second, but then quite late (nearer 20 weeks) with third confused

Aw I hope it is baby!! Hopefully they'll get a bit stronger soon.

I also have to sit really still to feel it otherwise If I move it stops, I'm guessing he/she moved position.

13 weeks but only tiny flutters

At 11 weeks I was absolutely convinced I felt flutters. Went to my scan at 12 weeks and the sonographer asked I I felt any movements. I said I thought I had, but they couldn't be the real thing so early, surely? She laughed and said the way it's leaping about she wasn't surprised.

He moved constantly from then on and is still pretty bouncy now he's one! Good luck smile

I was 11 weeks too - unmistakable flutters like a butterfly. Never experienced before except in pregnancy, and got stronger until they have become definite kicks and wriggles!

I'm almost 17 weeks and think I have felt movement since about 14 weeks (second pregnancy) according to scan notes my placenta is at the front. midwife says this will probably restrict what movement I feel so I keeo doubting myself!
have heard many people say you can feel baby sooner second time around.

I've been feeling baby since 13 weeks - but it was weird, almost like seeing something out of the corner of my eye. I felt it, but once I tried to concentrate on it, it was gone.

About 15 weeks I could feel baby almost panicking and flapping about when I sneezed (which was great fun!) and then it's suddenly stopped. Felt almost nothing nowin a week, but have heard the heartbeat at my 16 week appointment with midwife yesterday so not worried. My hump has lifted so think baby is just hidden behind my rock hard abs. Or something.

Sorry - meant to say this is my second pregnancy. 13 years after the first ...
