I'm 14+6 withy dc3 but I swear I just felt a wee flutter . Actually a couple of wee flutters that's why I think it may be quickening . But I know that it happens later in subsequent pregnancies

Think I'm imagining things --or have a serious case of wind--blush

I've heard you feel it earlier with subsequent DCs as you know what you're feeling! I've seen others on here commenting that they felt it as early as 12 weeks. So it was probably baby that you felt - congrats!

At 15 weeks with my second, I could definitely feel him move. At my 16wk appointment, the midwife could feel him from the outside and if I lay still and on my back, you could see the faint ripple of him moving. I do have a v shallow pelvis and short abdomen though. My uterus was palpable much earlier than it should be.
