I'm 18 weeks pregnant and wondered when you all felt movements for the first time? I haven't felt anything yet. This is my first though. Just getting a bit paranoid!!

I'm still waiting at nearly 23 weeks sad

Not till over 21 weeks

My first around 20 weeks don't worry it will happen.

My first a full big kick at 17weeks exactly with this one Iv felt flutters but no kicks an I'm nearly 17weeks

You might have an anterior placenta, I thought that was bullshit blush (as I've had two with posterior placentas who kicked like crazy from 16 weeks) but it makes a massive difference to how early first movements are felt. I've just had my 20w scan and this one was pounding like crazy and I felt nothing at all!

I was 16 weeks today and at the ante natal clinic, I mentioned movement to the consultant there and he said not to expect to feel anything for at least a few more weeks.
At the moment I can't wait, I suspect in 8 weeks I'll have had more than enough of being kicked! grin

19weeks and it was on Easter Sunday! Fingers crossed you won't be waiting long

weeks with my first (and only) but only realised that's what they were at around 17 weeks

underrugsswept Fri 25-Mar-16 20:38:37

16+5 but it was two walloping kicks and then nothing for at least the next week.

nam207 Fri 25-Mar-16 20:44:43

21 weeks both times, both anterior placentas

Mermaid36 Fri 25-Mar-16 20:49:22

Flutters from about 16wks, bigger kicks 21/22wks (twins, anterior placenta)

VocationalGoat Fri 25-Mar-16 20:55:46

20 weeks.
Have you felt any flutters? You have to pay close attention or you might miss them initially.

First time around you don't feel the movements for ages, or at least you don't think you do!

Most mums who have more than one say they feel it much earlier second time round.

I remember feeling dc2 really early on, about 16 weeks?

Can't remember with the first, but definitely after 20 weeks.

Don't worry, those kicks will come any day now, probably just your super toned stomach muscles masking the movements smile

Make the most of those btw (mwah hahaha!)

I felt bubbling feelings at 13 weeks with no.1 was quite slim, unsure if thats why. Quite distinctive and not wind!

cheekstime Fri 25-Mar-16 23:19:39

I should add that its after 20wks with first normally smile all best and try not to worry x

Most guides say it can be between 16-25 weeks so could be in for long wait!

JeanGenie23 Sat 26-Mar-16 07:33:18

I felt ripples at about 17 weeks but DP couldn't feel anything until about 23 weeks

MyBreadIsEggy Sat 26-Mar-16 07:34:00

About 21-22 weeks with my first - it was definitely after my 20 week scan. To be fair, it was probably earlier than that, but mistook the little baby movement bubbles for a trapped fart blush
10 weeks with number 2 at the moment, and am anticipating feeling movements earlier this time round!

17 weeks I started getting the odd kick, how at 18 weeks I get them several times a day. They're very subtle though and I don't feel them unless I'm sitting or laying quietly.
