    Question When did you feel your bub's earliest movements?

    Hi, I was just wondering when did everyone feel their bub's earliest movements?

    This is bub# 3 and I am only 9 1/2 weeks but already I have felt little nudges in the same place every time I sit and relax. Plus my uterus is feeling larger as I am unable to sit forward on tum as it is uncomfortable at present. It feels higher.

    This can't be right though. I know with bub #2 I felt swirlings at 12 weeks but this is little nudges.

    Help with any experiences would be great.

    Ive always been very 'in tune' with my body, and to be honest I think that makes a difference.
    With my first baby I felt movements at about 17 weeks.
    With this baby I felt movements from about 11 - 12 weeks. (little flutters initially, but now Im nearly 19 weeks and I feel definate wriggles!)
    This is your third so maybe your body is just very intuitive!

    With my firt bub I didn't feel movements until about 24 weeks but her placenta was anterior so blocking the first softer kicks (well so I was told). This time around it's only been in the last week and I'm 18 weeks. I do believe you are meant to be able to feel them sooner with the more pregnancies that you have as you have a better idea as to what a kick is (as opposed to normal belly goings-on like gas etc) and also that your stomach muscles aren't as toned either. I've always had pretty good ab muscles (no six pack or anything) so that probably plays a part too for me.

    With DS it was my dads bday and I was 18 weeks and this one that is baking has already warned me that he/she is actually there. Have been feeling flutters since 9weeks but when I lay down you can see a bulge.

    This is my first baby and I felt movements at the 16 week mark. They were like swooshes inside me.

    I'm now 20 weeks and the swooshes are much stronger although my DH is yet to be able to feel them. Shouldn't be too long though.

    Congratulations on your BFP!
