Did you feel your second baby move earlier than your first?

Currently 9+2 and wondering if I would feel this baby move earlier than my first (felt my first at 17 weeks),

Thanks

Yes I did. And earlier again with dc3.

Franny1977 Tue 15-Mar-16 11:10:24

Yes, but not until about 15 or 16 weeks

I didn't feel dc1 until late, dc2 I felt much earlier as my stomach muscles were shot by then, lol.

Yes, 20 weeks first time, 15 weeks this time, both anterior placenta.

Yes. About 18 weeks with DC1, 16 weeks with DC2 and 14 weeks with DC3.

1st DC - 17/18 weeks
2nd - 14/15 weeks
BUT
3rd - did not feel anything til 21/22. Was terrified going into 20w scan that something was wrong. Anterior placenta, but don't know where it was for the other two.

Yes I did but I also had an anterior placenta with my first and I don't this time. Think I started feeling movements around 14 weeks his time but it was a few weeks after that when I could say for sure.

Yes about 20/21 weeks with first and 18 with second!

Salene Tue 15-Mar-16 12:10:08

Yes
16 weeks first time

This time 12 weeks

No I actually felt this one significantly later due to anterior placenta!

Think I was around 19 weeks with dc1 and 17 weeks with dc2. Such a lovely moment when you first feel them move smile

I have had an anterior placenta with both first and second (currently 20 weeks with second) and I felt movements around 9-10 weeks with second, first was around 16-17 weeks.

I used the trusty google and then panicked as early movements can be a sign of a multiple and with my age there is an increase in chances! Luckily there is only one in there but it was a worrying few weeks to my scan!

No, both at 20w - but first was posterior placenta and this one is anterior, so perhaps would have felt earlier if not.

First at 21 weeks. Second at 11 weeks.
