Spontaneous movement can begin as soon as 8 weeks, but when did you actually feel it? I didn't feel DS until my 19th week. I felt flutters from DD at 13-14 weeks, solids thumps at 15.

at 8 weeks the baby is the size of your thumb. I do not think you can feel movement then, the baby isn't thick enough or big ehough to be able to make a "bump" sensation. I'd say the earliest is 12 weeks when the baby is 3 inches long now.
I've had 4 babies now and I am very skinny, I say I feel them around 14-16 weeks.
but I'm 15 now and still dont feel anything

I felt DD after 20 weeks and DS at 13 weeks. DH could feel DS at 15 weeks

I felt #1 at 17 weeks, #2 at 14 weeks, #3 at 12.5 weeks, and I am now 13.2 weeks with this one and have only felt 2 true thumps of movement and a few rolls. I'm (im)patiently waiting to feel them every day regularly! :)

I don't have any experience in the matter, but I just wish I could feel the baby already! I'm not exactly sure what it's supposed to feel like. I was awake at 2am (Poor DH was sick to his stomach :() and after we settled back down, I *thought* I felt something. It felt kind of like a muscle fluttering, first in the front, and then on one side. I haven't felt anything since, so who knows what it really was!

I wish I could remember when I felt all my kids move. wow, you girls are GOOD! but its been 14 yrs since my very 1st baby... and I've lost a few brain cells LOL
anyway, just 15 minutes ago I felt this one move- just a little bop. to be technical, I'm 15 1/2 weeks.

DD had an anterior placenta (on my left side, it always stuck out and you could SEE my pulse from it :giggle:) and I didn't fully feel her KICKING until about 22wks. I also not exactly skinny, so I chalked it up to that as well. I'm 12wks with this one, and I *STILL* can't find my uterus :( I've felt a few 'twinges' (best I can describe it is someone on the inside stabbed me with a pencil, lol), but then again I've also felt my whole left side 'kick' like there was a full term baby in it :giggle: I just think my body enjoys messing with me :banghead:

15-16 weeks the little flutters kicked in.
First true 'thump' was at 18 weeks, but didn't feel him again until 20 weeks. I've been feeling him allll the time now since 20 weeks. :wub: He's a mover!

Baby #1 and only: 18 weeks exactly!

With our son,our first~16 weeks
our 2nd,w/dd~13 weeks
our 3rd,our angel Gracie~17 weeks(but baby had anterior placenta)
now currently w/ our 4th~I swore I felt the tinest bursting bubbles and faint flutters starting at 10.5 weeks!! (my earliest yet)
Thought it was gas,but they continued and became little nudges and stronger flutters(especially after I eat,I'm resting and late at night). By my 12th week I was positive it was baby and now at 14 w.5 days it's for sure as it's everyday.
Just delightful to feel baby's first movements.:goodvibes:

Somewhere around 18-20 weeks..I can't remember off the top of my head and DD's baby book is in her room and she is asleep...shhhhhhh

I was 17 weeks with DD, but once I realised that's what it was, I also realized I'd been feeling it for about a week or so before then.

I can't remember with baby 1, baby 2 it was about 8 weeks and with my latest baby 3 it was 6 weeks no joking. And she continued to do it my WHOLE pregnancy. lol my girly used to stick her feet up for a massage anytime daddy was rubbing my belly. And if he didn't massage the spot where her feet were sticking up she would kick that spot over and over til he did.
