And no it was not gas! It was definitely that unmistakable butterfly flutter feeling, not bubble popping feeling like gas.

Wow! That's awesome! Aren't those first movements just the most wonderful feeling?

That's great! I'm really looking forward to some movement! I had a moment last night where I felt "something" but it didn't happen again so I figure it was nothing.

With my son I felt a couple little flutters around 14 weeks or something like that, and then real kicks felt from the outside at 16 weeks.

For my daughter, I felt her shift under my doppler at 9 weeks, 2 days.
Then starting at 10 weeks, 6 days I felt the little popping bubbles/fluttering.
A real kick at 12 weeks, but only one! lol.
13 weeks, 6 days I felt a bunch of flips.
and the frequent kicking started at 14 weeks, 6 days.
By 15 weeks, 2 days I could feel the kicks from the outside.
My placenta was even anterior for her so I was really lucky to feel so much so early!
I have this all written down on a forum so it's easy to find the exact dates lol... it's coming up fast! I am so excited!!! :D

That is awesome! I can't wait. As I'm sure is the case with most women, feeling the baby move is definitely my favorite part of being pregnant. :)

Oh my god, I'm so happy for you! That's the best thing about the whole pregnancy thing, it was better than the attention and the clothes :)
