When did you first feel your baby move?

I could definitely feel DS move when I was 14 weeks which I know is fairly early but I guess this is because I am quite skinny. I've heard with subsequent pregnancies you may feel movment sooner and I'd be interested to know what the earliest is that you've felt your baby move (and known for definite it's not your digestive system!)

I felt DD at about 14 weeks & felt this little one at 11 weeks

Not sure, tbh.

Thought I felt movement at around 14 weeks, but I still get that feeling now and am no longer pregnant.

Impossible to know which sensations are digestion and which are baby until about 18-20 weeks imo.

I thought I felt my baby move today (I'm 12+4 weeks) but I'm not the most reliable person to ask as I thought I could feel DS moving a month after he was born!

Felt both definitely at about 18 wks. Probably felt something a bit before on the 2nd but couldn't be 100% sure.

around 18.5 weeks (first pregnancy).

Both my pregnancies at about 18 weeks.

First baby at 18 weeks.

Second baby at 10 weeks. At appointment with midwife she tried to locate heartbeat and was faffing about for ages - I said "look, just try here" (pointing to area where I'd been feeling movement). She was very hmm and clearly didn't believe that I could feel the baby so early. Surprise surprise the heartbeat was instantly heard loud and clear at the exact spot I indicated grin

About 20 weeks for both of them. Did I have a numb belly????

ivykaty44 Tue 08-Jul-08 21:40:36

ist baby 14 weeks - could feel the cartwheels. 2nd baby 19 weeks, 2nd baby was never as active though in the womb as my 1st baby - although 2nd baby kicked my ribs a lot later on sad ouch

Wasn't sure until 18 1/2 weeks, but there were moving sensations during the couple weeks before that that weren't followed by burps/farts so must have been Squirmy...

JRocks Tue 08-Jul-08 22:51:13

18+2 for me smile

toomuchmonthatendofthemoney Tue 08-Jul-08 22:53:03

not until almost 22 weeks something that was definitely NOT curry rumbles and was LO.

Flum Tue 08-Jul-08 22:56:28

First two kids about 17 - 18 weeks. This pregnancy not until 21 weeks! Was v. worried going in for scan at 20 weeks. Sonographer sais placenta was at front of womb. Am 24 weeks now and only feel it very low in pubis or rarely - once a day- high up, one big kick. Do not feel at night at all!

Sometime during week 21

Rhian82 Wed 09-Jul-08 12:30:28

About 16 weeks - and this is my first baby.

witchandchips Wed 09-Jul-08 12:32:50

I've been feeling things that i'm pretty sure are not just wind for the last week or so (i'm 13.5 weeks). It is it funny how the big early milestones (smiling etc) are always put down to wind at first

babylove123 Wed 09-Jul-08 12:36:03

This is my first, if im honest, around 8 - 9 weeks. Got walloped with my first real bash at 17.5 weeks, lol.

LadyThompson Wed 09-Jul-08 12:49:57
