Feeling flutters at 13 weeks?

Could this be baby moving or am I just imagining it? It feels so real and only happens once or twice a day. Not actual kicks obviously just slow movements. This is my second child, with the first started feeling around week 16.

I felt my DS first move at 12+5. There was no mistaking it, and the same feeling only got stronger the bigger he got. I think it depends a lot on where the placenta is and how the baby is positioned.

I felt this too at 13 weeks with my first. I certainly don't feel it every day though and can go for 3-4 days without feeling anything. Now 17 weeks.

I was exactly the same!! It took me a ridiculously long time to feel my DD move! Wasn't really feeling it until 21 weeks! This pregnancy, I felt movement at 13 weeks! When I went for my 20 week scan, the sonographer said my placenta is positioned right to the back and she said the baby was very active throughout the whole scan! She wasn't surprised when I told her I'd felt movement so early x

14 weeks for me so I don't see why not!

I am sure I am feeling her at 12.5 weeks, I did with my second baby as well. With my first baby I didn't know what to look out for so didn't notice until 19 weeks.

I quite like it.

Yes with dc1 17 weeks dc2 12 weeks and this time round 11 weeks.

I am certain you can feel it that early- although there were enough people telling me otherwise.

I didn't feel DD move until 18 weeks but had an anterior placenta. This baby (I'm 25 weeks) I have been feeling since 12 weeks which really took me by surprise. He/she is on the move as I type smile

I started feeling movement (very occasionally) at 10.5wks with this pregnancy. Now 13 wks too and yep pretty definite that I am feeling stuff. I think if you've had a previous pregnancy you know what you are expecting.

Me too at 13 wks, like popcorn goign off. It's called quickening, apparently when you're with your second more likely to feel it earlier and or if on slimmer side can also be a reason x

I felt movement much earlier with 2nd pregnancy. Even DH felt movement the other day and I'm 15 weeks.
