I am 19 weeks and yet to feel first kick. Cannot believe i'm am saying this but I'm desperate for a kick/reassurance .

when did you first feel movement? should i be worried?
felt occasional flutters already but nothing else!

First pregnancy sometime around 20 weeks - flutters do count!! You have probably already felt your baby!
Second pregnancy around 15 weeks
Third pregnancy around 13 weeks!! I can now feel every single moevement this baby makes (I'm 23 weeks) - I am sure even when it farts!! Spoke to doc about that and she said that it was the fact that everything was so much more slack after three pregnancies (nice). Keeps me awake a lot at night. Didn't have that with first two pregnancies

Despite what all the books said, I was never sure what I felt was really baby movements until past 20 weeks with both my pregnancies. Felt all kinds of thing and never new exactly.
Try not to worry! The flutters is probably the baby!

I felt flutters at 16 weeks... but tbh they could have been wind until about 20 weeks + when I'd spent hours trying to interpret the gurgles... lol don't worry about it, the flutters sound completely normal!

19 weeks. especially for first pg can be up to 22 weeks. by the time you would start worrying you should be due for your 20 week scan anyway, so you'll be checked out soon.

like MommyD says, flutters count; I hardly had anything that made me feel kick - plenty of movement but very few feelings of being kicked.

the very first movements are very small - sort of like an eyelid closing and shutting inside your tummy!

I was about 19/20 wks with 1st pregnancy. 13 wks with second but then I knew what I was feeling for. Subsequent ones have also been around 13/14 wks when I felt fluttery/bubbling sensations. Like someone else has said, after the first couple everything goes a bit slack!

1st flutters, very early for a 1st pregnancy @ 15 wks

Flutters around 20 weeks with first pregnancy although I then realised I had been felling things even earlier than that. With subsequent pregancies, it was much earlier - around 15 weeks. Try not to worry. If you lie down and relax, you are more likely to notice something, and your time will soon come. It is the best part of pregnancy in my opinion.

Not until 22 / 23 weeks and then not consistently. Often depends upon position of baby.

Bang on 20 weeks and DH was able to feel it too!

I can understand the need for reassurance, the flutters have been there for me since week 15, my midwife asked last week if I had felt the baby moving, and I said somethings happening and described it and she said that's the baby! I wasn't all that convinced lol, and I can understand you want something more substantial, cos that's exactly how I felt. But the flutters are more than likely the baby moving. I know it isn't all that convincing but I'm sure it's okay. I first felt kicks on Tuesday, and now they come all the time. I'm 19 weeks this weekend. To me it feels like little internal punches. It might depend on how active you are. I don't feel all that much when I'm on the go, but when I'm sitting down or lying down it's quite frequent. Your twenty week scan, as mummyofseven said is coming up soon, so I hope this will reassure you.

I still hadn't felt my baby at all at 21 weeks when I went for the 2nd scan. Was starting to get anxious at the time, but then the scan showed a very active, twirling kicking ds,which I was very relieved to see. Eventually felt first movements around 22/23 weeks

mine was 20 weeks... it was the first time i ever was pg and it was a fantastic feeling - cant really describe it to a non-pg woman
