Feeling your baby for the first time!

So I hav been reading about when you will be able to feel your child and all that stuff, and I am only 14 weeks pregnant but I SWEAR that i felt the baby yesterday! It was jsut one of those "i know that was it" moments. Do you think this is possible? Or am i jsut crazy?!

Oh its my first, and I am SUPER skinny if that helps out any!

  • I think it is totally possible and don't listen to the nay-sayers! Sometimes you just know! I am 14 weeks too and paying very close attention, nothing for me yet though!

  • Well, I'm not skinny one bit. But I felt my son at 16 weeks and my daughter at 12 weeks. Everyone did with her. So it is possible.

  • It's totally possible - the thinner you are the more likely you will feel it early. I was much thinner with my first and I know I was feeling movement by 15 or 16 weeks. With my twins I was not so thin, and it was after 20 weeks before I felt anything.

  • it's possible. I felt my baby, this pregnancy, around 13/14 weeks. My first it wasn't until 19 weeks though lol.

  • I started at 15-16 weeks. I might have felt it sooner and just blown it off. I'd say you are :)

  • I think I felt my baby move for the first time around like 16 weeks. My dr said i prob wouldnt until like the 18th week-ish, because it is my first pregnancy, and i really wont know what to expect. I remember laying in the tub and feeling something different, and i knew thats what it had to be.
