    Default Early fetal movements?

    Just wandering for those who felt fetal movements early - how far along were you?

    With my first DS I was about 17 weeks. This time I am only 13 weeks and am pretty sure I am already getting regular flutters. I know it's supposed to be easier to pick up 2nd time round but 13 weeks?! Am I going crazy? Has been on and off for 3 days now, just little jittery type feeling in my lower abdo region.

    Maybe I am going to give birth to a grasshopper?!

    I felt my Dd at 15 weeks, so I definitely think you can feel them early!

    I felt something very bizarre at 13 weeks with my first and I'm certain it was bub. I then didn't feel
    anything more until 17 or 18 weeks and it was pretty hit and miss after that for a little while. I definitely think you would be able to feel it that early!

    With my first I felt movement at 16 weeks. With my second it was at 13 weeks. And it was definitely baby flutters, there's no mistaking it!

    Glad it's not just me! It's subtle but definitely feeling something, didn't think much of it the first day but now it's happened several times I am as certain as I can be. Looks like it will be another active little one... 😀

    I first felt something at around 10w4d, and that was my first pregnancy too! It felt like a tiny rubber band giving a few little flicks. I'd never felt anything like it before in my life, it was unmistakably DS. Then I got little flutters and stuff usually at least every couple of days from that point on, and then I got my first definite kick at 16w2d.

    I was 20 weeks with my first. With my second I first felt movement at 13 weeks. I thought it was impossible! It continued on and became stronger and more regular though and by 14-15 weeks I was certain that's what I was feeling.

    Exactly this. I felt a few very quick 'bubbles' that weren't gas at around 13 weeks. Once you've had a baby before you know what is bub and what is gas. Then from 16-17 weeks the kicks began and by 20ish weeks they were starting to become visible from the outside.

    I think I felt something at 15 weeks but I'm not sure as this is my first pregnancy. I'm pretty sure I felt something more substantial last night (17 weeks yesterday) but I've heard all babies are different and it can happen at different times. I'm still not certain that's what I've felt!
