When was the latest you felt first movements?

I'm 20weeks 4 days today and I'm pretty sure I haven't felt anything. Had my 20 weeks scan only a few days ago when he was doing backflips in there so he seems to be moving ok but still I'm pretty sure I'm feeling nothing.

It's my first pregnancy and I've got a BMI of 33. When was the latest you felt first movements and how obvious are they really?

It'll just feel like a little fluttering or gas to start with. A sort of 'was that something or did I imagine it' and then slowly will get stronger and more regular. I was about 21 weeks the first time round. Second time round I could feel it at 14 weeks but knew what I was feeling then

Do you know where your placenta is? I'm pregnant with my second and at 20 weeks only felt very little. At my scan last week they confirmed I have an anterior placenta so that's probably why.

With my first easily almost 24 weeks before I felt her. They said it was due to where placenta was

Thank you, I forgot to ask about the placenta at the scan but she didn't mention anything

I'm in the same position! 20+6 with first baby and nothing, placenta is high and at the back so that's not the reason. I know she is fine but just frustrated that she isn't making her presence felt yet! I'm sure in 10 weeks we'll be wishing for some peace and quiet smile

I started to feel movement strongly and regularly at about 23 weeks - my BMI is on the high side and was told that often has an impact. Know how you feel - it's so comforting to be able to feel little one shuffling around. Shouldn't be long now smile

FTM - didn't feel baby properly I would say until 23 weeks but was sporadic, no pattern and definitely not that strong. My placenta isn't at the front either.

I've never had a huge amount of movement, cue worrying. I'm 31w this week and definitely can feel him very clearly now, but I don't think I get as much movement as some

I was about 27 weeks when I felt move ten with my first and my second was about 21 weeks. I had an anterior placenta both times.

Thank you! Good to know I'm not alone in this smile

Placenta at the front here -flutters started at 25 weeks, now a week later I'm feeling proper little kicks and punches smile

blue2014 Sun 24-Jul-16 19:33:46

Ah, I love you all! I will place worry at the background for a few more weeks now then smile

29 weeks with anterior placenta, only found out at 27 weeks after multiple trips to hospital due to reduced/ no movements nobody actually mentioned my placenta until last time so I know it's not something they tell you.
I feel my tummy jiggling and sometimes get an uncomfortable feeling under my ribs which i guess is a foot or hand but apart from that, I still don't really feel anything and my bmi is 28 atm.

My BMI is modest, btw, around 21 when not pg.
With my 4th pregnancy, I wasn't sure I felt any movements until 22 weeks.
Looking back I wonder if I was just imagining ever feeling anything any earlier, in the previous pregnancies.
I've no idea where the placenta was. Kind of low down with baby 3.

I'm 22 weeks with my 3rd and only this week starting to feel the odd movements smile

blue2014 Mon 25-Jul-16 12:32:53

Thank you, that all really helps
