So how early can you really feel the baby move?

    For me, the first pregnancy was around 17 weeks, and I had to lay down and concentrate. Second pregnancy, 14 or 15 weeks, not consistently, and because I recognized it as fetal movement. This time, I was 13 weeks I think, I was sitting in a staff meeting.

    I think with subsequent pregnancies, it's easier to feel movement earlier because you know what it feels like.

    For me, it was around 16 or 17 weeks.

    I'd had many people tell me it would feel like gas bubbles but oddly enough I'd never experienced that before so it freaked me out when I felt this odd tickling sensation for the first time.

    I felt Xander once at about 14 weeks and then not again until 18 weeks. After that, I felt him all the time.

    I first felt movement here and there around 16 weeks. At 19 weeks, I could feel him every day.

    I'm a freak - I felt virtually nothing till at least the 22 week mark, with both kids. Even then, it took a good few weeks after that till the movements were really good and strong.

    Thanks ladies =). I keep thinking I'm feeling something and I wanted to know whether I was crazy or not.

    I felt the first movement somewhere between weeks 14 and 15, but nothing regularly until weeks 19-20.

    I think I was around 17 weeks. I had to eat sugar (gummy bears to be exact) in order to feel the kicks.

    I felt both of mine VERY early...son was around 14 weeks, and daughter was around 15 weeks.

    I felt it earlier with subsequent pgcies
    With my first, I want to say it was more like 16/17weeks
    My second was about 15weeks
    My last was about 13weeks? but very little until about 20weeks since I had an anterior placenta which cusioned a lot of the movement.

    15weeeks is definitely not too early.
