    Talking Early movements!

    I am currently 15 weeks with my second baby and can't believe that I can feel movements already! I felt flutters about 2 weeks ago but last night I really felt the baby going nuts! Actual kicks! I guess I am surprised cause I didn't feel DD until I was 28 weeks with her!

    Anyone else feel them this early?

    Oh I'm so jealous!! You lucky thing

    I think I've felt bubs but I can't be 100% sure yet. I keep hoping each morning when I wake up that bubs might have risen first and will give me some sort of indication that it's awake but no such luck yet.

    What an amazing thing though, feeling our little bubbas move in there.

    I first felt my baby at about 19wks.

    Apparently you feel them much earlier if its 2nd, or 3rd pregnancy

    Oh that is just so nice! I'm REALLY looking forward to knowing for sure that bubs has made its presence known Fingers crossed I don't have too long to wait.

    Congrats again on feeling some movement!!

    I felt them really early the first time (took me ages to realise what the strange ticking was too... hiccups DER all the time
    This time is less because the placenta is anterior so I cant always feel bub moving. Some days I do quite a bit then hardly at all for a few days. Very frustrating. Cant wait to see bub at 20 week scan on Thursday!

    Jordie,

    I was exactly the same. DS was 28-30 weeks before I felt anything.

    This one, I swear it was around week 13. He is just kicking me to bits in there!! Even as I type!

    I am fairly positive that I have been able to feel my baby since I was 12 - 13 weeks pg. My DH put his head down on my tummy to listen to the baby's heartbeat and he has felt it kick him in the head a couple of times so I know I am not imagining it. I am currently 15 weeks.

    Congrats on feeling your baby move - it is exciting! Makes it feel more real

    This is my first and I felt the flutters at just 12 weeks adn DP could feel them around 16 weeks. Now I'm 25 weeks and it wakes me up at least once a night with a massive kick/punch. lol. A blessing in disguise.

    Not always the case - I felt DS at 16 weeks because my placenta was towards the back. I didn't feel DD until around 23 weeks because my placenta was anterior.

    Yep, I felt this one the first time between 14 and 15 weeks With DD I felt her at about 16 weeks for the first time, didn't realise it at the time must have thought it was wind or something LOL

    Its so exciting isn't it?

    i have a posterior placenta and first felt bubba wiggles at 9.5 weeks (kinda thought i was insane at the time cos it was so early) - have felt consistent movement ever since though so i know it was real.

    i have a rather sensitive uterus though - i doubled over in pain at each implantation! doesn't bode well for a nice comfy labour...

    Gosh now I have to think back, I think it was 14wks for flutters with DS and by 17wks hubby could feel them too! With DD it was 10-12wks just little flutters by 14wks they were regular feelings.

    Isn't it a wonderful time! Enjoy your little football star

    My midwife also said you tend to feel them earlier the subsequent pregnancies because you know what you're looking for.

    That makes sense too.
