Do women usually feel the baby move sooner in their second pregnancy?

This is my second pregnancy and people told me that you will feel the baby move sooner than with your first. i am 12 weeks and was wondering how soon that might be.

  • This is my second pregnancy and I felt my baby move at 14 weeks. I have a friend that said she felt her second move at 12 weeks. Should be soon for you!

  • Everyone's different. I felt my 1st & 2nd move at pretty much the same time...16 weeks. I'm 18 weeks now & the feelings are far & few between. My OB said my placenta is buffering the movements. Who knows?

  • sounds kinda early... you have :Super moms for advice givers. if you don't feel something by week 18 or so, then worry. but that sounds like a crok of well, crap. I have had 4, and I can't say that was true for me in anyway what-so-ever.
