baby movements

(14 Posts)

Hello everyone, I got a question for everyone,,
when did you start feeling your baby move (how far gone were you??)

my first pregnancy I felt my baby move around 7 months and with my second pregnancy I didn't feel my baby move because I went into prem labour at 7 months (but baby fine now smile...)
what's your experience??

I felt the first little kicks, kind of like someone flicking me from about 17 weeks. At 22 weeks they are getting a bit stronger. Makes me jump sometimes when I'm not expecting it smile

I'm pg with DC1 and started feeling tiny kicks around 17-18wks. A couple of weeks later they were unmistakable and DH could feel too. Now at 6months you can see my whole belly move.

16 weeks. By 20 weeks could see and feel from outside.
Currently 9 weeks with dc2 and wondering if it'll be any earlier trying to ignore what's obviously wind

I'm nearly 20 weeks and haven't felt anything yet

16 weeks for possible movement, 19 weeks definite movements, roughly 24 weeks for kicks clearly felt by hubby

Was around 18 weeks I started to feel bubble like feelings but by about 21 weeks they were unmistakeable kicks.

Now 27 weeks (today yay!) and can see my stomach contort into some weird and wonderful shapes smile

I was feeling flutters at 16 weeks but wasn't sure (I am now looking back) I was sure by 18 weeks and they could be felt from the outside at about 20. Now when the baby kicks my whole belly moves and they seem to be getting stronger by the day(24 weeks)

20+5 - bloody little madam had me ever so worried I hadn't felt anything! Now at 22+3, she's been merrily booting my bladder and turning somersaults grin

I was 17 weeks when I thought I felt a flutter then nothing then at 20 weeks I could feel gentle kicking (was actually hiccups) DP could feel them a few weeks later.

I felt the first kicks on the 20 week mark exactly. Now almost 22 weeks and have been feeling them every day since.
