When did you first feel your baby move?

I am 11 weeks with my second. For the past few weeks every few days all of the sudden I will feel something like someone flicking me at the bottom of my stomach. I have done some research and a few things have said that with your second child you may feel the baby doing flips and things this week because the baby has enough room to move around and because this is my second child, my uterus is more flexible from already being streched. Just wondering if any of you have felt movement this early? It seems early but I'm sure its quite possible.

Totally possible. My doctor asked me at my 14 week appt if I had felt the baby move and I said maybe. Only b/c I thought you couldn't before 16 weeks. He said most likely that I had b/c it is my second and you know what to feel for and are more aware of your body. So enjoy the little mover :).

I was around 12 weeks when I started feeling my second one moving around. Now I'm 16 weeks and love feeling it move more and more each day! :)

I was thinking the same. I'm 10 weeks and have felt little things when I'm laying in bed. I wasn't sure it was really the baby either since I barely felt my daughter with my first pregnancy. I go for my next sono in 2 weeks so if the baby is moving a lot in the sono I'll know thats what I'm feeling. So hard to tell! Good luck to everyone!!

I'm 10 weeks and 4 days, this past weekend I felt the baby for the first time. It's my second, and I'm sure it was the baby. I have felt so many funny things in my stomach, and general area that this was not like any of them, and reminded me of the baby moving around last time. It also was much lower, right where the baby is sitting at the moment. I was also laying on my side/back right before bed, and totally not expecting it. It is early to feel TOO much, but it's also possible with a second that that's what it could have been. It's SO hard to tell, you almost have to go with your gut on it.

My first child i felt move at four and a half months and my second child i felt her move at at12 weeks. I asked my doctor if it was really my baby i was feeling and he said it could be because with your second child you may feel it sooner because you know what your looking for.

Pretty unlikely that it's the baby. I know what you're talking about. I seemed to feel odd movement wayyy too early. I feel like this baby is more active then my daughter,
