Hi all, I'm 14 weeks pregnant with my second baby and im sure I can feel butterfly like movements.. I don't know if it's too early to feel it already! When did you first feel movements x

I was about 18 wks when I felt what I knew were movements. There were vague feelings before that but couldn't say confidently that it was definitely baby.

Over 20 weeks.

22 weeks with first baby

16 weeks with second.

Anterior placenta with first baby and posterior one with 2nd

I'm 23 weeks with my first and felt the baby at 15 weeks dead on. I think 14 weeks is possible smile

I am 18 weeks with my first and I thought I felt small nudges over the last week. Always when I'm sitting down though. I Gp don't even know whether the gentle nudges are the baby's. Could be wind moving about what with the bloating.

With my first after 20 weeks i think (anterior placenta). With my second i was feeling movement very very early on (10 weeks?!). A Google suggested it is possible that early but rather unusual. No anterior placenta this time and baby was lying almost transverse, might have made a difference. I was worried it might be twins!

Yeah that's what I thought it could be .. wind but then it doesn't feel like it lol it's just the strangest little flutters every so often .. I'm not confident it's movement but I hope it's not just wind lol x

17 weeks both times. People say you feel it earlier with the 2nd but I didn't!

savagehk Sat 28-Jan-17 13:07:17

Mine was definitely baby not wind, head was up by my ribs and flutters (feet kicking?) were down by my left hip, exactly how baby was lying until after 20 w scan. All movement was the same until baby moved.

I'm 18w with second and feel nothing sad

With my first I was about 13/14w when I felt a weird lapping like waves. It was unmistakable.

Marie38y Sat 28-Jan-17 13:20:04

My first was about 18 weeks for that popcorn popping feeling...

kel1234 Sat 28-Jan-17 13:34:28

Around 23 weeks. Was my first baby

arbrighton Sat 28-Jan-17 15:24:22

been having flutters/ wind feelings in wrong place for a week or so, 17+ 4 with first

sailorcherries Sat 28-Jan-17 16:39:16

Flutters around 19 weeks and only the occasional definite kick now at 24 weeks, but not regularly. I have an anterior placenta.

With DS1 others could feel the kicks at this point.

sebashocked Sat 28-Jan-17 17:57:23

16 weeks

user1483387154 Sat 28-Jan-17 18:08:26

17 weeks and still waiting sad I just want to feel some movement!!!

haveacupoftea Sun 29-Jan-17 01:16:09

Suspected movement from 14/15 weeks, at 21 weeks unmistakable movements and they get stronger every day. 22+1 now and last night felt my first kick from the outside.

TwoDogs9 Sun 29-Jan-17 04:15:26

I started to feel very definite movement at 20 weeks and I had an anterior placenta.

SpaceDinosaur Sun 29-Jan-17 04:24:28

14 weeks
14+5 to be precise. I was singing at the time and trying to work out what I had eaten to give me such funny digestive feelings 😁

JellytotsRule Sun 29-Jan-17 08:55:08

I was 16 weeks with first - bubbles gently popping smile.
Now 17 weeks with second and haven't felt anything - Scan indicated anterior placenta so may be a factor? Midwife said not to worry but I think it's the default setting of pregnancy!

ChuffCloud Sun 29-Jan-17 09:12:22

I'm 17 weeks with dc2 and have felt movements from 14 weeks

Eevee77 Sun 29-Jan-17 18:04:58
