Hi smile I'm 14 weeks pregnant with dc2. Just wondering when you felt your second baby move?

Hi there, when I was 13 weeks, I felt what I was confident was movement, it was extremely infrequent and like little bubbles almost! I'm now 16 weeks and get it a bit more frequently now and a little stronger! Still not as defined as a kick just yet though!x

I keep wondering if I can feel the baby, but wonder if it's bubbles!

Not till 19 weeks. Had me worried for a while but thankfully all is well.

I never believed anyone who said they felt their baby move that early - until I felt dc2 at about 14 weeks. It was just like a little tickle, but a reasonably regular and predictable movement that gradually got stronger over time.

I think I might be starting to feel DC2 at 14+5 but like you op I'm not sure if it's too early. Just small flutters but they feel 'right'

It's very exciting but I'm looking forward to the proper movements!!

13 weeks (but came 3 weeks early weighing 7lb 2 so I always wondered if my dates were wrong)

Today I had the first tiny flutter that didn't feel like gas bubbles! I'm 14+3.

I felt my first at 16 weeks so it's not that much earlier - I'm hoping to get something a bit more definite soon.

I felt my first quite early from 16 weeks but this is my 2nd and started feeling movement from 11 weeks (bubble type but definitely baby movement) and felt kicks from 13 weeks, my partner felt a kick at 14 weeks!
my 5 year old son has just been sitting with his legs over my bump as baby kicked, he jumped up shouting what was that, didn't think he would have felt it but he must have done grin I'm now 16+5

20 weeks for my second, 23 weeks for my first. Both anterior placentas though.

Impatientwino Sun 13-Dec-15 22:28:52

21 weeks with my first and 15 weeks with this one. Was just tiny flutters at first but definitely the baby! Both anterior placenta too!

I'm 27 weeks and we've graduated to full blown wallops already confused

First felt the 'bubbles' at 15 weeks with both first and second. With second I was getting proper wriggles by about 18 weeks.

I felt it from 12 weeks and proper kicks as well strangely enough, nothing like flutters at 16 weeks first time around. Was confirmed during 12 week scan and did not stop moving all day that day. Now 23 weeks and been able to feel through the skin quite obviously since 18 weeks.

I'm 15 weeks with second and while I think I might have felt some movement before now (and baby was very wriggly in the scan) I'm only now starting to feel confident that it is baby and the feeling is still very infrequent.

I think its mostly wishful thinking on my part and I dont really expect to feel much for another few weeks yet.

It was around 20 weeks with my first.

I don't know how far gone I am yet waiting for my scan on Friday but I keep getting the odd flutter great but strange feeling! Xx

This is my 2nd and I've felt him from around 13 weeks. At 16 weeks the midwife felt him while she was using the Doppler, he kicked her and she jumped. By 18 weeks I could feel him when I put my hand on my tummy.
I'm almost 28 weeks now and he's been squirming and kicking around for the past hour. Looks like I've got an alien in there!
I've got an anterior placenta too so thought I wouldn't be able to feel him much.
