When did you first feel your baby move?

Just wondering when everyone first felt the first flutterings?

I must be imagining things because I'll be 11 weeks tomorrow and I have felt a few flutters for the last couple of days. Only last a second or 2 and I need to be still and quiet to feel them. Am I dreaming/wishful thinking? Seems a bit soon to me?

I felt DS give me a good kick when he was about 16 weeks.

I think with dd I was around 20 weeks or so, ds it was a bit later at about 24 weeks and with this baby I have felt flutterings from 15 weeks ish.

So I guess it varies grin

I was 16 weeks, felt a flutter like butterflys in my stomac.

With ds it was about 20 weeks, with this baby it was around 17/18 weeks

Around 16-17 weeks for me, but I think it depends on how you are carrying, your build and also I read somewhere that with second and subsequent babies you can feel it earlier - may because you know what you are looking for?

I felt this baby move at 12 weeks, but it is #4, I am also very slim.

I was about 14 weeks and this is my first pg, I felt the same as us, little flutters and I was also wondering if it was wishful thinking.
I've read somewhere that you may feel consecutive baby's earlier than your first.

Thanks for the replies. I guess as it's said so many times on MN every baby/pregnancy is different! Maybe I have very sensitive insides or a vivid imagination.....!

I'm sure I read somewhere on another thread someone feeling flutterings at 11 weeks?

with my first pregnancy it was near 20 weeks because i didnt really know what it felt like, this time round i was feeling movements from around 12 weeks, as i knew what they felt like so i dont think you are imagining things
