When is the earliest you felt the baby move?

The title pretty much says it. I am 9 weeks along and I swear sometimes I feel flutters. This is my 5th baby, so maybe I can feel it earlier? Maybe it's just gas, maybe I'm crazy. But, I wondered when the earliest that other mamas felt their babies move, and do you feel it earlier with each successive pregnancy? Thanks!

Re: When is the earliest you felt the baby move?

I felt 3 rapid flutters at 10 weeks. It definitely was not gas or anything I had ever felt before. It had to be baby. Over the next 3 days my belly did a 'pop' and I didn't feel anything again until 13 weeks. I think the flutter was baby running out of room before the pop. I have steadily felt the kicks, somersaults, etc. since 13 weeks. I also felt the baby fall like dead weight from my middle to my side as I moved from standing to lying down on my side at 14 weeks. I even felt the baby stationary (sleeping?) from the outside of my belly (baby was on my left side) at around 16 weeks.

This is my first pregnancy. I think it mostly has to do with being 'in tune' with your body. You are not crazy!

I didn't feel my DS till about 20 weeks. My DD I felt at 12, mostly when I was laying down ready for bed and I was paying attention. Hoping to feel this little one early too

Thanks everyone! I do mainly feel it when I am calm and lying down at night when the kids are asleep. You all made me feel so much better! I am pretty excited! I LOVE feeling the baby move. It is my favorite part of pregnancy!
