I felt it wriggling from very early on, and I know the feeling as I have a 16 mo DS. However, the movement is only the odd time now and I haven't yet felt a kick on the inside.

I had by 16 weeks with DS.

I'm 16+2 and a little concerned.

About 15/16 wks, I'm 23 wks now and it seems so long ago grin although it was pretty difficult to distinguish between the movement and movement of gas in there!! lol but one time I felt something around that time when I was hanging the washing out, I just knew it wasn't wind.

I'm sure there's nothing to worry about, mine wasn't a massive movement, which if you've got a 16 MO you'll be remembering the gym workout they're doing at the end more than the first flutters smile

Only little flutters at about 18 weeks, major kicks now at 24 weeks. I felyt dd at 17 weeks, so this time was a bit later. I doubt it's anything to worry about, even a slight change in position at this gestation would prevent you from feeling anything.

with first I felt movement at 16 weeks, this time (2nd) I felt it around 18/19 weeks. Supposed to feel second quicker but depends on placenta and other factors. Mine is anterior (on the front wall) so it could have cushioned the first movements. My friend is now 38 weeks with second and I remember her being in a panic as she'd felt nothing until 20/21 weeks but all is fine.

It wasn't until I was 21 weeks... I was a little panicky about it, but I have an anterior placenta too, so I guess I was cushioned. Not cushioned any more though - ouch!

18 I think, def. not any earlier. I was still quite worried at 20 week scan and then the scan showed baby was incredibly active, I just couldn't feel it!

This is brill, feel so much better now. Maybe I have an anterior placenta too. Can't wait to get to my 21 week scan, then I can chill the hell out.

Hi im 18 weeks with number 2 and still nothing, had felt ds1 by now. Im hoping its down to being so busy with ds1 only 20months and working in a creche. I have no time to sit and chill to feel it!!

Had a anterior placenta with both of mine. Felt my first at about 16 weeks but didn't feel my 2nd until approx 20 weeks.
