Hi ladies

I’m 12 weeks today and just wondering when I will start to feel quickening or the flutters that I hear people talk about? I can’t wait to actually feel my baby!

Hello - I personally didn't feel 'owt with this baby until 21 weeks and even now it's muffled at times! Damn you anterior placenta!!

Saying that i'm sure many women out there are adamant they felt it earlier - I think most people get it from 18 weeks plus?? I think it just depends on the person, their weight and their build etc. It's a weirdly exciting feeling though. I have loved feeling the funny bumpy kicks!
