What’s the earliest you’ve felt baby move?

I’m 14+4 with dc3 and for the first time the placenta is at the back so I should feel more movements than previous pregnancies.

In the last couple days I’ve felt a few little bumps (not bubbles, I’d definitely call it bumps) but I feel like it’s too early for it to be the baby. Has anyone felt movement as early as 14/15 weeks?

I think I did with DC2, probably around 15 weeks. First was anterior, this one is posterior. It definitely felt like rolling for me.. not bubbles!

Yes, 14 weeks with both DD and this one now (20 weeks). Midwife didn't believe me first time round! With both, DH and I could feel from the outside by 16 weeks. I know that's unusual though.

That’s exciting, so it could be movements and not just my imagination! I’m so glad my placenta isn’t anterior again this time.

Thanks both.

14 weeks with DS.

About 15/16 weeks felt the odd bump by 19 weeks definetly felt lots of movements

Yes, 13 1/2 weeks, I had a scan at 14 weeks and the sonographer confirmed it was possible as the baby was so close to the skin.

Felt DC2 move crazily early, before the 12 week scan! Think it was about 9 weeks.

14 weeks with DD, she's my first. Felt like a goldfish was living in my belly!

Just under 16 weeks and after that it didn't stop until the birth :-).

DailyMaiIisMyBogRoll Tue 10-Jul-18 20:54:23

I did definitely. I didn’t realise what they were that early in my first pregnancy, but I certainly felt them. Second baby it was similarly early again.

i swore with dc2 i felt something at 12 weeks. The sonographer at my svan said it couldnt be the baby but it felt exactly like kicks. ah i miss being pregnant and feeling baby move!

gigi556 Tue 10-Jul-18 21:22:33

Exactly 15 weeks here!

JustVent Tue 10-Jul-18 22:37:42

Yes 14 weeks with DS1, DS2 and DS3.

SamSmithYawnsWhenHeSings Tue 10-Jul-18 22:44:55

11 weeks with dc2 I felt familiar flutterings.

14-15 weeks with DD and 13 weeks with DS. Love those early movements . So exciting. Congratulations xx

This is my first with a posterior, the other three were all anterior. I swear I felt him for the first time at 10 weeks which is super early but it was such a distinctive feeling, I can’t imagine it being anything else. It happened every so often for the following 4 weeks until the movements became daily and stronger.

BlueBug45 Wed 11-Jul-18 08:53:59

Yes 14 weeks with baby and it hasn't stopped.

Not sure why you think it's too early.

Charlottejade89 Wed 11-Jul-18 09:17:28

Around 14/15 weeks with my first and I have anterior placenta

Isambardo Wed 11-Jul-18 09:29:21

@bluebug45 it’s just because it’s massively earlier than in my previous pregnancies, 4-6 weeks earlier. Position of the placenta clearly makes a big difference in my case.

I wasn’t aware movements could be felt this early. It’s a nice surprise!

mumofmunchkin Wed 11-Jul-18 09:32:01

I felt them around 14 weeks with my second

Saraswati Wed 11-Jul-18 12:47:39

flutters at 11/12 weeks with this pregnancy (no.2 now 22 weeks) was around 15/16 weeks with my first. Proper stomach churning kicks and flips now that you can see and feel from outside now!

Soubriquet Wed 11-Jul-18 12:51:22

9 weeks here with my second born

Only because I knew what to look out for.

If it was my first pregnancy, I wouldn't have known but I knew those butterfly bubble feelings was my little bean moving around

16 weeks, 24 weeks now with my first!
