With my first dd I was 21 weeks before I felt my first flutter(at least when I first noticed it)
With DD2 I was in between 17-18 weeks.
I am 15 weeks with DC3 and I could swore tonight I felt a big ole flutter. I've got to be imagining it right? It's too early to feel anything isn't it? My dates are right on...I am definitly not further along than this.

I first felt Sam when I was 16 weeks... I was driving along and "Stuck in The Middle with You" by Steelers' Wheel ( "Clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right.. here I am, stuck in the middle with you"), I turned it up and sure enough, my little joker made his first move! :)

I felt both girls early like 14-16 weeks I think you just had your first kick mama!

DS was like 17.5 wks.
DD was sometime around 15-16 maybe? Dh felt her on the outside the first time at 18wks
This pregnancy was like 21 wks..but it had to do with where my placenta is (its on the front of my uterus) So even though I am 25wks I really only feel him in my ribs, way low, or to the sides...
DH hasnt felt him move yet because his hands arent big enough to cover the entire belly and the stinker always stops moving where dh feels and moves somewhere else! :giggle:

Are you all kidding me? I seriously thought maybe I was imagining it. Wow, that makes me feel SO great....because I am at the inbetween stage, Like I haven't ever heard the heartbeat but I saw an U/S at 11 weeks and haven't been back to the Dr yet but my first trimester blahs are pretty much gone so I'm constantly worried about the baby.....I am so excited to feel it move...that means it's OK! Yeah!

With DS I think it was around 20 weeks. This time it was 13, but I talked myself out of it until it became super regular and I found out it was twins, LOL. Now I'm sure I felt movement at 13 weeks. Nah - with this being your #3 you can sure feel it move that early!! How exciting!!

I felt flutters with DS around 16 weeks, and I could feel kicks and bumps from the outside around 18 weeks.
With DD, I was feeling flutters at around 13 weeks (I knew for sure then because I had an U/S and I could *feel* her move as they were doing it... and DH was able to feel her squirming around at 17w2d, just above my pubic bone, on the right side :) He was amazed!

I swear with this one (#5) I felt real early too.
Like 15-16 weeks.
I kept thinking it was gas but really think it was baby moving now.

I don't remember about the first 3 but with the twins I was 11 or 12 weeks and then at 14 weeks my husband even felt them! Both of those times were after a very enjoyable time though KWIM! :laugh: After I found out it was twins I understood why I felt them so early.

With my first I didn't feel anything till about 20 or so weeks. With this one I started feeling distictive kicks pretty early at 15 weeks. I think I've read that with each pregnancy women usually start to feel things sooner.

with my ds and dd i felt them around 15-16wks and this baby i felt him at 13wks
06-14-2006, 08:58 AM
with dd i thought i might have felt something 15-16 weeks, but definitely felt little fluttery kicking right around 17 weeks. it was probably a month to 6 weeks before DH could feel it easily though.
i've always heard that it's common to feel baby moving earlier in subsequent pgs [b/c your uterus is thinner or something like that?]

with ds#1 i was about 17 or 18 weeks when i finally realized all that "gas" was baby moving. one morning i was laying in bed and thinking "man this is going to smell really bad" lol then i felt a distinctive rolling haha.
with ds#2 i was about 16 weeks when me and dh both felt him move on the outside too!
this one (due in 9.5 weeks now!!) i think i was about 13 weeks when i felt what felt like a fish swimming in there when i was in the bath. for a few weeks the only time i could feel him was when i extrememly relaxed and in the tub.

I felt the baby's moving at about 14 weeks each. With my first, I was told to watch for a fluttery gas feeling. Um, NOT what I felt. he felt more like a goldfish in a bag, lol. The second felt more like single sharp pokes... I've never felt a flutter, never. After a few months of poking and angry-goldfish boy I was wishing for the flutter, LOL
