When is the earliest you can feel the baby?
hi ladies,  I had a question. I had been reading and saw that some people can feel the baby as early as 12 weeks. Is that true? When is the earliest you can feel that baby? Oh and p.s I am only 10 weeks, i just want to know!

Any opinions are greatly appreciated!!! Thanks!!!!!

I felt mine at 12-13 weeks, which i was really suprised at because i'm overweight.  It'll feel like little flutters at first!

I think it depends on if it's your first or if you've had more pregnancies.  On my first, I believe I was about 16 wks....and I felt a little tickle across my stomach when laying on my couch....like little bubbles....

Now, I am on #2 and have felt it at 12 wks......I'm 16 wks now....I think you are just a little more familiar after #1.

I'm in my 16th week and THINK I started feeling baby on and off last week.  Just little flutters...I don't think its gas-that usually 'resolves' itself and then I know it wasn't baby!  In fact, I just ate supper and then sat and read the newspaper and I'm pretty sure I could feel baby fluttering.

I didn't really start feeling my baby everyday until about 19 weeks.  It felt like little pokes.

I felt my baby moving for the first time at 16 weeks (Easter Sunday)! It felt like tapping and rumbles. I can really only feel it when I am lying down, relaxing.

This is my first baby and I felt him move for sure at about 18 weeks , to me it was like a little tapping feeling. I felt BH contractions before I felt my baby, which confused the feelings a little. But now being 23 weeks I feel him all the time :)
