Earliest baby movement?

With DD, I was pleasantly surprised to feel her around 13 weeks. I've read that "generally" first time moms dont feel much until around 18 weeks.

I was just wondering, for those of you having your 2nd (3rd, 4th...whichever!) have you felt movement earlier this time around? Maybe because it's more familiar and you know what it feels like?

I just ask because I SERIOUSLY think I'm losing my mind. This week I've felt something several times...and I keep telling myself "oh, its probably just gas", but it doesnt feel like gas bubbles, or cramps, or whatever else. It feels like tiny little light taps waaaay down low, right above my pubic bone. I mentioned it to my husband and now he's convinced it's baby.

Doesnt make sense to me! Surely theres no way I'm feeling something already....right????

Re: Earliest baby movement?

I felt this baby at 14 weeks where as my lil boy ( my first ) was around 20 weeks , I think it's mostly that my tummy and uterus muscles are not as tight and strong this time after growing one baby already so it was easier to feel sooner , my lil boy's was a flutter and this one was kicking away .

Re: Earliest baby movement?

ohh I was also told it has to do with which way your placenta is facing...

Re: Earliest baby movement?

With dd I felt her at 16 weeks. With this baby I felt the end of the 17th week I believe. This time I have an anteror placenta which I know has something to do with it.
