    I'm sure this has been asked a million times, but at what point did everyone start feeling movement? I was told that this happens much sooner with twins than with singletons? I started feeling my son at about 18 weeks and my daughter at 15 weeks. Just curious if that was the norm with twins as well.

    In my case it wasn't sooner. With DS I felt movement around 16 weeks. With the twins I didn't have really solid movements that I were sure were movements until about 19 weeks. It drove me nuts and made me so nervous because I'd heard the same thing about feeling it sooner. :)

    Good luck!

    For me, too, I didn't feel any definite movement until about 19 weeks. And then I felt quite a bit!

    With my previous 3 pregnancies, I felt movement around 17 weeks and with the twins I felt them around 15 weeks. Although, I didn't know I was having twins until my 20 week u/s.

    i didn't feel my girls definitively until 21 weeks, although i did have an anterior placenta which cushions a lot of the early movements.

    I started feeling mine moving at 13 weeks and a half, and to be honest, it freaked me out :). This is my first pregnancy, and I didn't realize what was going on, and them after I put 2 and 2 together, it felt weird, I kept thinking about the movie "Aliens". I kept imagining 2 little babies the size of hamsters moving their tiny legs and arms in there (I know I have a sick imagination :)). I got more used to it in time, but when they kick me in the stomach out of the blue with no warning sign, I get scared at times, and I scream - very funny for people around me, not so much for me. It happens at times that I only feel the one, or only the other, or at times, both of them are moving in the same time. I feel them more in the morning while laying in bed before I get up, or at night when I am laying in bed, but as time progresses I feel them more often throughout the day also.

    :FIFblush: I felt the twins around 9 weeks, no one believes that it was baby, whatever to them. Its my fourth pregnancy, I think I got it down at this point

    Ok, so that's what I've been wondering. I'm 10w2d now and for the past few days I have been feeling some "fluttering" more towards the left side, which is where one of the babies was located. It's just very, very occasional but thought I must be crazy and that surely it was too early to feel anything yet.

    The first time I felt movement was around 10 weeks. It was just one time though, and a couple of more weeks went by before I felt anything again. I'm now at 20 weeks and only within the last week or so do I feel movement just about every day.
