Wow?? Movement??

I was laying in bed this morning and felt that oh so familiar "wooosh" across the inside of my belly. Not a kick, not a punch, just that woosh! If you've felt it you know what I'm talking about Smile I felt my first at 20 weeks, my second at around 16 or 17. I don't know if its even possible to feel movement this early. I will be 10 weeks tomorrow. Im Working this weekend and I'm so excited to take the Doppler and try to find a heartbeat Smile

I know we have mostly BTDT moms here, what's the earliest you felt movement? The baby articles everywhere say you can't feel movement before 16 weeks, but I've heard stories of moms who felt it much earlier. It felt JUST like a baby, but I guess I could be mistaken!

I first felt DS around 16 weeks, but I didn't know what it was at the time.

i keep thinking i feel something too, but I have had phantom kicks on and off since he was born so it's probably just that. 7.5 weeks would be wayyy to early i would think! Smile

I felt mine at 17, 15, 17, 17, and 18 weeks. The one I felt at 15 weeks was my biggest baby, and the one I felt at 18 weeks was my smallest.

I really can't remember. I felt both of mine on the early-ish side of things but not 10 weeks. Also I have felt a few PINGS the past week that I could SWEAR are movement.

I don't remember the exacts, but I'm pretty sure it wasn't until after 14 weeks.

The earliest was around 11 or 12 weeks. My M/W didn't believe me at first, but I would say "There's a movement," then a split second later you could hear it on the doppler. It's a very, very faint feeling, like a feather brushing against your insides.
