    Default When did you first feel your twins move?

    I am coming up to 16 weeks pregnant with twins. This is my second pregnancy. My first was a singleton and I first started to feel him move around 15 weeks.
    I am yet to feel the twins move, although I have had moments where I think "is that them?".
    I'm just wondering when others have first felt their twins move?

    hi , i didnt know i was carrying twins, but i felt slight movements earlier than with the first pregnacy which was a singleton. I felt slight flutterings about 18 wks. the movements very quickly ramped up, and it was a 24/7 circus from about 20 wks, never stopped. good luck, Marie.

    I felt flutters at 16 weeks, well before I felt anything with the single pregnancies. But everyone is different, I wouldn't start stressing at this stage.

    I felt movement at 17 weeks with my singleton pregnancy and 13 weeks with this one with twins. Movement this time has been very irregular and sporadic since however. The first movement was quite distinctly movement this time around, as my belly (and hands resting on my belly) jumped upwards. Have just started feeling more flutters now that I am 17 weeks again.

    My twins were my first pregnancy. I started to feel flutters/bubbles around 14weeks. Everyone is different though so I wouldn't be stressing too much yet

    Around 11-12 weeks. The twins are my second pregnancy. I thought i could feel a slight flutter at 11 weeks but dismissed it thinking I couldn't possibly if there's just one in there with plenty of room. The next week I found out its twins and still get the same feelings of movement
