I felt the first major back flip lol at 14 weeks, haven't felt that since. At week 17 I feel lower taps, like the baby is knocking

I felt the first movements about 10-12 weeks, and it's really picked up this week...15. Pretty exciting !

The earliest I've felt them is this time, around 14-15 weeks and at that point it is just a gently tap from inside, sometimes you wonder if you really felt it and then it happens a few more times and you know that's what it is. Now going on 18 weeks when baby is moving I know it. The gentle taps have become thuds from inside!

I first felt baby at 10 weeks. It was the bubbles. Felt like popcorn popping or like a mess of tiny little bubbles popping. I didn't really feel much after that till these last couple of weeks, weeks 13-14 and it has really picked up. Some times I feel like someone is rubbing the inside of my uterus and others its little taps. Like baby is in there tapping on my uterus. It esp happens when I wear the waist band of my pj pants super low, I assume its getting too tight and crowding baby's space... :)
