I am ten weeks along with this, my third pregnancy. I am feeling flutters, which makes me think it is the baby, but it seems really early to feel it. Is it too early? Or is it possible I am feeling the baby move? I only feel it when I am sitting down. With my last two I didnt feel it until at least 12 weeks. What about you when did you first feel your baby(ies) move?

It's entirely possible that you are feeling the baby this early. "Experienced" moms tend to feel movement earlier because they know what it feels like. Also if you are thin it is even easier to feel the baby early. The earliest I've felt a baby move for sure was around 11 weeks but I do remember feeling some questionable flutters before that.

i am 11 weeks along and this too is my 3rd pregnancy i have been feeling flutters as well which makes me smile for i believe it to be the baby moving, the dr said the more babies you have the earlier you may be able to feel him or her move. good luck!

Yes its totally possible, I have felt this fluttering even earlier, I admit that I am a stick figure and when I laid completely still on my back I could feel it. I could even feel this tiny little lump when I pressed down on my belly...

thats true! I think it is a beautiful part of pregnancy feeling the baby move. It is something between the mother and the baby, one of the first bonds I think =)

I swore I felt flutters a few weeks earlier with my 2nd then my 1st. I think it is possible, especially since you knwo what they feel like now you are more tuned in. I can't wait to feel those little flutters again. That is one of the best things about being pregnant is feeling the baby.

I don't know. Ten weeks seems kind of early to me, but then everyone's different. I've had four pregnancies, and I didn't feel the baby moving until about fourteen to sixteen weeks. Maybe it has to do with the position of the baby.

yea, I felt it later with my first two about 12 or 14 weeks, but this one it only happens when I sit with my stomach crunched kind of. but I know they are capable of movement at about 10 weeks, and it definitely felt like it did when I felt my last two move. =)

When I was preggo, I thought my baby's movements were just gas, but it wasn't uncomfortable or anything, so I figured out it was him byt the time I was 11 weeks. That's the one part of being pregnant I really miss. He'll be a year soon and I'm already thinking about another one, lol. Blessed Be

For moms having their second or third baby, many feel it moving sooner. And as someone said already, if you are thinner it will also add to how soon you may feel the baby. At this stage, I wouldn't pay any mind if you don't feel the baby every day like you would later in the pregnancy.

Because you know what you are feeling it is very likely that you are feeling the baby. With my first I was 14 weeks and with my second I don't know how far along I was as I didn't know I was pregnant until I was almost 12 weeks. We where moving and I was living at my parents were everyone including me had the flu so I just thought I was sick until my sickness didn't go away.

yea. With my first I took an ept test it said positive when I went to the doctor their test said negative. I went back two weeks later, because I thought I had the stomach flu, and this time their test came out positive. Weird. I am pretty sure it was the baby, because as you say I know what I was feeling, as I have felt it before with my last two! =) Thanks!

I just had my little girl 6 weeks ago and when I was around 10 weeks pregnant I started feeling flutters. I told the dr she said it was gas. I know it was the baby moving because I did have gas and they feel different lol. So no its not too early for you to start feeling them.

I am only six weeks and although I feel nothing moving I defiantly feel like something is going on inside me. I believe you are feeling flutters. It might be gas though.
