Feeling movement?

BTDT moms when did you feel your previous children kick and move? I was for sure feeling my DD at 17 weeks. I've heard that with subsequent pregnancies you feel the baby sooner and sooner. I had a friend feel the baby at 12 weeks with her second.

I can't remember when I started feeling my last. I do remember it being hard to tell the difference between baby and gas.

With my first, I felt her for sure by 19 weeks. I thought I felt her before that, but that was when I got my first real unmistakable kick. With my second I had an anterior placenta, so it was not until around 19-20w then. By later on, I felt just as much movement with #2, but it definitely delayed the start.

My memory isn't great but I think I felt movement aroun 16 weeks for #1 and around 14 weeks for #2. I think it was earlier only because I knew what the fluttery sensations really were second time around.
