    Just curious when you all felt baby moving for the first time?

    This is baby number 3 and still havent felt anything at 16 weeks?
    I felt baby #1 flutters at 12 weeks, does it get longer with subsequent babies or something haha

    Me too! I can't wait to feel something, I have an appointment next week so hopefully hearing the Doppler will put my mind at ease!

    Wow it got earlier for you! Seems to be the opposite for me, I was thinking maybe baby has more space this time?

    Not sure from my previous pregnancies but baby #7 was about 22 weeks with placenta in the front, and baby #8 was 19 weeks and his placenta is in the back.

    Yes they mentioned the placenta was sort of at the front/top? I'll stop expecting it so early now!
    Thanks for your response, every pregnancy really is so different!

    It did get earlier each time for me but I know people who felt movements later and later with each pregnancy!

    First 17wks
    Second 11wks
    Third 9wks (internal organs/womb battered from previous pregnancies and even ovulating is agony every month so feel everything lol )

    if ur placenta is at the front even just a little then it limits the movements u can feel for quite a while due to baby being so small,however everyone is different and every baby lays differently/has different patterns of movement so I’m sure U will start feeling things soon
