Should I feel kicking at 17 weeks?

I'm 17 weeks through my second pregnancy and I am wondering: Is it common to be able to feel baby kicking quite hard and regularly this early? Sometimes I can even feel it scraping its limbs across my belly and it hurts sometimes, too.

It is very common for women to feel fetal movements earlier in subsequent pregnancies. Women may also feel more discrete fetal movements rather than "flutters" at an earlier gestational age.

Hello!!! Ya this is quite normal that the baby starts kicking at this time and do you know the best thing is you will start feeling more movement as time passes.
