I was about 9 weeks. i didn't understand what i was feeling until i was 18wks, when i found out that there were two. i kept telling my mom that i was feeling "it" move on separate sides of my stomach which made my mom believe that i had gas... haha.

That sounds about right. I think everything happened fast while i was preg. with the twins. I noticed alot more sooner anyways then I did with my singletons.

I can also depend on whether it's your first pregnancy or not. Often in subsequent pregnancies you feel movements earlier. I can't remember exactly how early I felt it with my twins but my second pregnancy (one baby) I felt them around 12/13 weeks.

I felt my twins move early on too. The thing I loved most was when they got hiccups... usually at the same time! =)

I was 16 weeks when I knew for sure that it was a baby moving. It was crazy when they were both moving in there!!

I don't know exactly when I first felt them moving but I do know I started to be able to distinguish movements of the separate babies around 22 weeks. That was pretty cool.

i thought the same thing til my ultrasound a week and a half ago...i am now 16 weeks and i can feel them but did not realize it was them...it just depends on your body...some women feel them sooner, and im sure some of them are flickers and some are gas bubbles but theres really no way to distinguish til your farther along... good luck!

The babies won't start moving any earlier than singleton babies would ... however, if this is not your 1st pregnancy, you may feel them earlier than the usual approx. 4months.

I was about 12-14 weeks when I felt my twins move. But I wasnt all the way healed from having my 8 month old. And when I felt the it was like a wave was moving in my stomach.

i felt it around the same time. It was my second pregnancy so i could distinguish the feeling more.

I was 16 weeks when I knew for sure it was the twins and it felt like bubbles at first. Everyone is so different especially if you know what you are feeling compared to just gas and if it's your first pregnancy or not. I could have been feeling them earlier but didn't know what it was so just chalked it up to gas. Next time, I am sure I will recognize it earlier than 16 weeks. So exciting

i was 8 weeks along the first time i felt my twins, at the same time on opposite sides of my tummy that's how i found out i was having twins. it's not abnormal to be feeling them already.

It is a wonderful feeling, specially when you do know for sure that they are ok.
Now...mines kick me in the stomach SO hard sometimes that I end up puking :(

i was about that early too when I started feeling it. Then soon you will start feeling slow and subtle "rolls". It will be easiest to feel when you are laying down. But watch out bc at about 22 weeks-ish, you will start feeling more of a jabbing and by about 24-26 weeks, it will start to get strong enough to be uncomfortable. Not that you will mind bc it is such a wonderful feeling! congrats!

i felt mine when i was about 10 weeks.. felt them moving and then got to see them moving on an ultrasound so i knew that it wasnt gas.. but each person is different.. it was very suttle for me at first but now im on week 28 so i definitely know for sure that its them..

it could very well be the babies! a lot of things happen earlier in twin pregnancies than with singleton b/c there is less room.

I thought I felt something that early, but I think it was closer to 6 months I felt actual movements.
