Feeling Movement? Anyone?

I briefly posted about this earlier today. I am 13 weeks and felt the first quickening movements last night and throughout the day when I am still. Feels like butterflies, so beautiful! I didn't get this far with my two previous losses, so I'm pretty emotional in a good way. Anyone else feeling movement?

So exciting, those first movements! I haven't felt any yet. I'm not very perceptive though Smile I didn't feel my DD move until 21 weeks!

Nothing here yet. Hopefully since this is my 3rd I will recognize it sooner!

I thought it was gas at first! Except it was in the "right" place. I even called my doctor this morning and he said because it's #5 for me, totally possible I could feel it this early.

Can't wait until the butterflies turn into hiccups! LOL!

I'm not sure if I've felt anything yet...I probably haven't since this is my first and my midwife suspects an anterior placenta. So excited to feel first movement, though!

I have felt movements.I felt movement early with my last one as well.They are still few and far between( maybe once a day if I am laying still and paying close attention) over the next 2 or 3 weeks though I am sure it will get more frequent since with my last little guy I felt movemebt alot from 16 weeks.

I'm really not sure if what have been feeling is gas or baby moving around in there. It's kinda like a popping sensation.

I've been wondering if I can really feel anything - mostly when I first lie down to bed. Yesterday I definitely felt something, about 3pm, felt like a rolling sensation as if baby was doing barrel rolls, somersaults or maybe cartwheels, lol.

Doc didn't really give me a right location. He just confirmed I could be feeling quickening early. I just "know" because it's #5 and the feeling is familiar. I feel it deep in the pelvis where the uterus is... as opposed to the gas bubbles we feel in our upper/mid abdomen.

To me, it feels like flutters...or "butterflies". Very small and faint. I have to be completely still to feel them. I mostly feel them when I eat.

Hope this helps!

Yes, I have felt bubbles a few times and maybe a somersault. Smile I felt movement with my son ~16 weeks and I am 14.5 weeks now...so maybe I am not crazy Smile

Yes at last Drs app I told him where the baby was due to the flutters, he didnt believe me until he got the doppler. Now the flutters are about three inches under belly button, always on the same side, and more at night. I am sure its my LO! Its soooo exciting :clappy:

I felt one of them kick a few days ago. I felt my second son at 11 weeks and thought I was crazy... DH felt him at 16 weeks though! We'll see.
