I'm only 17+2.

I was sitting on the sofa, decided to lie down sideways (feet still on the floor) and I'm sure I can feel movement. It's still happening now as I type.
This is baby number 2 and the movement feel different to what I felt first time around.

Just thought I'd share that smile

Ahh that's lovely!

I felt DC2 at 12 weeks when very quietly sitting in the bath.

It was that lovely fluttery feeling.

Can't wait to feel it again smile

So exciting grin
I first felt my baby move at about 17 weeks, as it's my first and I'm not small I wasn't expecting to feel anything for a while so it was a lovely surprise!

Is it a fluttery feeling? Like if you held a butterfly in the palms of yours hands? I was led in bed on my stomach with one leg raised, so not completely flat, and i could feel like a gentle flutter but im only 15w5d so i passed it off as wind or something lol smile I cant wait to feel full on movement!! :D

Oh how lovely. I felt at about 17-18 weeks with my first. Nothing in the world like it - that little flutter.

Thanks for sharing.

I've been feeling movements for about a week and I'm 14+5 (2nd baby). I couldn't believe it at first, but had a quick Google, and apparently it's possible to feel 2nd baby movements from about 13 weeks. Some people say they've felt movement at 11 weeks, or even earlier smile.

I felt my babies around 17 wks too. Like lemonade in my veins.

I felt my first daughter in week 16 and this one in week 12, I think with the 2nd one you recognise the feelig quicker. It's a lovely feeling,.now at 28 weeks it's more sharp kicks to the bladder!

I felt DC2 move at around 17 weeks. Now he tap dances on my bladder for about 6 hours a day and most of the night.
