How far alongish are you before you can start to feel movements?

I started feeling small movements around 17/18 weeks. 25 weeks now and feel baby move very strongly all the time!

Around the 20 week mark for me but very light flutters - a bit like popping candy. I have an anterior placenta though x

17 weeks for me, felt like butterflies. Wasn't until about 24 weeks that the movements became larger. I got to 30 weeks without knowing what DS hiccups felt like!

Anterior placenta with my first, they pointed it out at my 20 week scan and commented that I was likely to feel movements later. Probably at least 22 weeks or later before I felt anything.

With my first I felt the about 18 weeks but now with my second I felt them at 15 weeks smile

I had the placenta infront of all my babies and didn't feel the first move properly until 24 weeks, but with my second and third I felt them earlier because I knew what was baby movement (and what was wind!)

I think I've just started feeling mine at 16 weeks. It feels like light muscle shudders - like when you're holding a plank position and your abdominal muscle start shaking - just very lightly. That's the only way I can think of describing it!!!
