  • From the Due Date boards you know that I just felt the baby and I was 17w6d. I just felt the fluttering feeling everyone talks about. I wasn't even thinking about it at the time- and it just happened! I know how excited you are! When we had our 12 week u/s our baby was moving like CRAZY and it was hard to believe I couldn't feel it yet! Most people say somewhere between 16 and 22 weeks and it's usually earlier for women who are on their second or more pregnancy since they know what the feeling is. I know it is hard to wait, but it is really AMAZING when it happens!

  • With my 8 year old son, I felt the first movement around 18 or so weeks. I am 15 weeks along with my second right now and I have been feelings flutters for a few weeks already. I have read several things that say that you usually don't feel the baby this early on, but I think I disagree. I think everyone is different. If you know how your body normally feels, and you fell something "different", its the baby moving.

  • I have a sensitive stomach so I felt the first flutters early, around 16 wks. I had my first ultrasound at 17 wks & could feel her swinging her legs while watching on the screen.
