I don't think you feel them regularly until you are in the 20s (weeks that is). Can't quite remember myself, but I know that it's once someone else can feel the kicks, but no one seems to say anything about the kicks until about 28-30 weeks I think.

btw were you selling baby clothes on ebay yesterday? Just being nosey!

I would say later for regular kicks - after 6 months for me. Not sure how many weeks that is.

Depends on baby & on whether 1st, 2nd etc... - should notice it more with 2nd but 18 weeks is still early (IMO).

My 2nd babe never did have a 'regular' pattern & I ended up taking myself to be monitored at least 5 times in last trimester. She still has no routine now at 20 weeks old .

I wouldn't worry just yet but if you want reassurance go & ask for a trace to be done. (You know - where you lie there for 20 mins while they monitor the heartbeat & then they check the print out. My hospital were great about it & never made me feel like a nuisance. Really relieved the stress.

I felt kicks at 15wks but dd was a kicker from the word go right to the last minute so I suppose it depends on the child.

thanks for the reassurance people!

no i wasnt selling clothes on ebay!!!! i hate ebay now!

im not overly concerned - got my 20 wk scan in a couple of weeks so that should be fine!
