The point in a woman's pregnancy when she can begin to feel the baby move varies from person to person. If it's the woman's first pregnancy, she may not feel it until close to 25 weeks. For a second pregnancy, movement may be felt as early as 13 weeks. Being still and quiet will make it easier to detect these motions.
