Should I feel kicking at 17 weeks?

Q: 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.

A: 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.
