  • I felt it at 14 weeks the first time and at 12 1/2 this time. I know it's not gas. Some people just feel it sooner. They tell you it's generally 20 weeks so people don't worry about it if hey don't feel movement sooner. Also it depends on it the placenta is in front of or behind the baby. In pregnancy...normalcy is widespread.

  • I also felt it at 14 weeks. It kinda feels like gas..but if its your first it will be hard to determine the diffrence between gas bubbles and flutters since when your pregnant gas is VERY common. Also, like Jenae said it depends on how your placenta is placed. Dont worry so much. Usually by 18 -24 weeks you will feel your little on in there. Gl hun

  • With my first I felt her around 20 weeks, but I didn't know what to look for so I probably felt her sooner. With this one, I felt her around 13-14 weeks and it was just really small flutters. At first I thought it was gas but learned to be able to tell the gas from the flutters.

  • This is my first baby and I felt nothing, until the day i turned a full 19 weeks pregnant. It felt like a gas bubble in my tummy that popped. Really cool. As far as the fluttering goes...I never felt any of that. It literally just happened one day.
