Pregnant Moms: When Did You Start Feeling the Baby Move???
I will be 15 weeks on Thursday and was just wondering when you started to feel the baby move? (I already have 2 other kids -ages 5 and 2 1/2- but I just can't remember........ I THOUGHT I felt something little a few times over the past couple weeks but few and far between. So, I don't know if I just imagined it or what....LOL. I do know I felt our second sooner than I did the first but I just can't remember how far along I was. Just getting excited. THANKS for the info!

It took FOREVER. We already knew he was a boy so it was after twenty weeks. Maybe twenty-two or so? I'm really skinny but the placenta was in the way.

When I was pregnant with #1&2 twins, I didn't feel them until 21 weeks. When I was prego with #3&4 twins I felt them at 15 weeks.

I'll bet you didn't imagine it! But I think it completely depends upon the Mom and her physique. I did not feel my first baby move until week 23-24. I felt my second around week 18. Congratulations!

With my first four children, I felt the baby move at 14 weeks. With my fifth I felt him starting at 8 weeks.

I remember with my first that it took a while. I remember getting my ultra sound at about 20 weeks and just barely was able to feel little movements.

Any time now if those random flutters you said you had felt weren't it. I loved that feeling! = )
I think I felt it around 15-16 weeks w/my first but earlier with the 2nd. I suppose it might be different depending on you uterus' position, the fetus' position and mother's weight.

At 18 weeks. But I wasn't sure if it's the baby or not until I was 20 weeks along..

I am 18 weeks with my 2nd and started feeling the flutter about 2 weeks ago. With the 1st it was later but I wasn't sure what I was feeling either.
