This is my first (hopefully last) pregnancy. I am only 16 weeks and I think 6 days. I have looked on the net and everything that I read says that first time moms do not feel their babies move until 18-22 wks.
I thought I was feeling something earlier and kept feeling it randomly... I have an AngelSounds Doppler and put it on the exact spot where I was feeling the "movements" and immediately could hear the heart beat. (louder than I ever had before) It sounded like the baby was doing flips... I have never heard so much action in there before and have felt this tapping feeling a few times since.
Am I delusional? Or feeling gas? Today is actually one of few days that I have not been bloated or gassy.

There are plenty of first time mums who feel their baby before that. I was feeling my daughter flutter at 13weeks, then the movements were much stronger and more defined by 17 weeks.

I felt my oldest at 13 weeks. So yes it is possible to feel your baby early on.

I started feeling movements around 15 weeks. Not often but it was there. Now I'm 19 weeks and every day feel more and more.

That's just an average. You can feel them
Sooner or later depending on your size and sensitivity to movement

I consider this my first also, my other two did not make it past 6-7 weeks.
I am glad to hear all of this. And know that I am not delusional LOL! I don't feel it too often but I know that I am feeling something going on in there that I have never felt before.

I felt movement at 14 weeks and my husband could feel and see it from the outside at 18 weeks, so you're not crazy :)

I know that pregnancy is suppose to be a "beautiful" thing... but something about growing a person inside me is kinda freaky... and feeling it move is even freakier!
