How early have you felt baby move?

I'm on my third pregnancy and I'm currently 12 weeks. I know it's early but I swear I can feel movement. Flutters and sometimes kicks low down where baby is as it's still quite low at the stage. Has anyone else been able to feel early movements?

I'm fairly sure 17 weeks or thereabouts and that was considered pretty early.

With my ds I didn't feel him move until 20 weeks and with my dd I was about 16 weeks but I swear I can feel this one already. Not 100% sure but I know it's defo not wind

14 weeks with second DC and DH felt the kick from the outside!

I had been feeling Kicks for a few days prior, so it's definitely possible.

My other 3 pregnancies I felt first kicks 15/16 and 18 weeks.

From very early on (before scan), second baby. I was worried it might be twins or something!

About 14/15 weeks with second. 12 weeks is early bit not outside realms of possibility!

18 weeks with my first but I have heard that after the first preganancy, mothers feel flutters earlier.

I guess that's because you know the feeling from previous pregnancies. Has anyone been bigger the more children they have. I feel like I look 5 months already

I'm 14 weeks and I've felt 'things' which are most likely Gas!

I'm definitely smaller this time round but I've not stopped horse riding so that's probably why.

18 weeks DS1 and 15 weeks DS2. Surprisingly I was later feeling this baby, think it was 18/19 weeks.
I will say though that even when I wasn't pregnant I used to feel things which I would have sworn were baby movements, had I not know better 😜 I think once you know what it feels like your more aware so even if it is bowel sensations you might attribute it to baby, especially at the early stages. My eyes nearly roll out of my head when someone who is 10-12 weeks tells me their baby is kicking. Believe me, from a negative experience I know that they are just too small, their arms and legs don't even touch the edges of the amniotic sac. But at the same time, who does it hurt? It's just their way of bonding I guess.

And yes I feel bigger this time (5th preg but 3rd baby), I'm 25 weeks and could easily be 35...

I was 12 weeks with my third when I swore I felt movement, got dh to put his hand on my tummy... and then I farted 😳
Actually felt proper movements around 14/15 weeks with her, 16 weeks with my second and 18 weeks with my first.
