Movement?

I noticed a few of you have noticed some feelings of movement already! Who is feeling it and who is still waiting?
I am in the middle, I THINK I have felt something a few times, but nothing that has made me go, "Yup. that was the baby"...I can't wait though. Feeling the movement is my favorite thing about pregnancy.

It's my favorite part too. Biggrin

TMI - I've had terrible gas that has felt like movement, but it's not where the baby is even located at this point. Lol I also have felt movement when I haven't even been pregnant. I don't trust it until it's obvious so I have at least another month to go, probably longer.

During my impromptu ultrasound on Wednesday, the baby didn't move at all (other than the heart beating). I wonder if I'll finally get a chilled out baby? That would be awesome.

Almost 16 weeks and nothing here yet either. I'm hoping I get some feeling soon, I was 17 weeks with DS2 when I started feeling him.

Nothing here. With my last I think I started feeling movement around 15-16 weeks. I can't wait!

Nothing yet for me. I felt my son at exactly 17 weeks, so I'm hoping only about 3 more weeks! Can't wait Smile

I think I feel movement all the time. And then I realize it's way too high and probably just gas. Yesterday, though, I felt a little tingly in the right place.....didn't feel it again though so who knows. Last time I didn't feel anything until 21 weeks!

This I where I am. I did have a bubbly/fluttery sensation a bit ago that *could* have been baby, but it's still early, so I don't quite trust it. I definitely looking forward to knowing for sure.

I have felt some things that *could* be the baby. It didn't seem like it was gas and it was right where the baby is. I've only felt it when I'm sitting in the upright position. At my u/s when I was about 13 wks the baby was moving all over but I felt nothing. I was laying flat on my back. With ds I was about 17 wks when I knew for sure I was feeling him. I'm looking forward to knowing for sure it's baby flutters. Such a neat thing.

I've felt the baby but I was on the doppler and heard the baby moving at the same time. Otherwise it would have been hard to know if it was the baby or gas. I am pretty sure I have felt the baby a few other times though it was very light and quick.

Nothing here yet. I'm at the end of Oct though so I don't expect it yet. I was between 15 and 18 weeks with the boys when I felt them.

Only 12 weeks here so nothing yet. I do feel a fullness down there though, like if I lay a certain way I feel like a little weight/heavyness in my stomach which kind of makes me feel good for some reason...

I think I felt movement around 17 or 18 weeks with DS- it was the day after my ultrasound I think, I was getting my hair done and had my hand resting on stomach and all of the sudden my hand BOUNCED, it was weird feeling it OUTSIDE and inside at the same time, this time Im thinkin I'll be more perceptive so hopefully feel him inside first!

I've been feeling a lot of "pressure" there over the last few days. Thinking it might be the little guy

Nothing here yet, but I felt both my others early (14 weeks) so I'm hoping soon!

I was 20 weeks my first time, but I had an anterior placenta so that usually softens the ability to really feel. With my second pregnancy, I felt very obvious baby movement at 15 weeks. I'd love it if that means I'll be feeling this baby in just a few short weeks!

This is my first child (We miscarried in October 2011 at 9wks) and I don't feel any movement. I am currently 14 wks and 3 days. I'm not even sure what "movement" is supposed to feel like! I do have the occasional "cramp" like a very light menstrual cramp but that's it. Can any experienced mommies give me some encouraging words??!!?:D

Please don't worry! It is totally normal, especially with your first, not to feel definite movement until 20+ weeks. Most women who are feeling it by how far along you are now have already have babies and know what movement feels like. With #1 I was 22-24 weeks before I was sure that it was him that I was feeling, it was 17 weeks with #2, and now here I am with #3 and I'm only now just starting to feel what I know is definitely baby at 18 weeks.

Movement doesn't feel like a cramp, its more like a flutter or bubbles, which is why its so easy to mistake for gas or indigestion, or vice versa, especially like I said if its your first baby. Once you start getting real kicks there will be no mistaking it. Smile

I was 21 weeks to the day when I felt my first. I was laying down, perfectly still, just waking up when I felt the flutters. If I had been up and doing stuff, I probably wouldnt have even noticed. Hang in there!

I haven't felt much either and that's with twins being posterior placenta & 3rd pregnancy. Started my 17th week, thought I could feel movement with the baby on the left but nothing with baby on the right. Maybe soon I'll start feeling something, doctor said both babies are very active too.

I'm starting to feel light taps. Mostly at night when I lay down on my right side. I always feel the baby on my left side and ive only felt the baby on my right side a few times. At my last u/s the baby on the left was moving all over the place and kept kicking her sister in the head. The baby on the right was curled up in a ball trying to protect herself.

Michelle (onlyn2urmoney) I don't mean to laugh but have you've seen the twin maternity shirts on CafePress? There's one that says "Stop kicking me" and another one that says "Move Over". http://www.cafepress.com/+maternity-twins+t-shirts

I'm nearing 18 weeks and felt a kick on one side and movement like a roll on the other, yay! Smile

I think I felt a small tingle under my belly button area. Could that be considered movement??
