Are you anxiously awaiting your baby's first kick? Or are you concerned that baby should be moving by now? Or do you have a leaping leprechaun in your belly and wondering if that is normal? Fetal movement varies from pregnancy to pregnancy. However, there are certain expectations given for all babies regarding fetal movement.

I have had the complete opposite situation I have had a crazy first trimester, lots of bleeding but I was given one gift fetal movement at 14 weeks, second child. I lay on my back and meditate with both hands on belly I get the jiggle feeling not every time but enough to make me grateful. Knowing she is ok

I'm just finishing week 19 and started to feel my baby kick. I know for sure it was kicking. Before I've felt foreign movement but still wasn't sure since this is my first. But honestly, when it kicks it kicks and you'll know.

I'm just finishing week 19 and felt my baby kick a couple of days ago. Before I'd feel foreign movement but still wasn't sure. I guess since this is my first. But honestly when the baby kicks, you'll know. Such a cool sensation!

I'm only 8 week pregnant, and it is my first time.I also really want to feel that, though I know it is too early. I'm looking on my calendar everyday, counting days when finally that happy day will come that I'll feel my baby moving inside. I think yet I can see and feel her heart beating if I'm not mistaking it with something else.
I was always thinking awful about pregnancy and delivery, but now I want to go through all that as fast as I can so that I can enjoy every pain with coming child, new life. It really worths it.

I've just past 25 weeks and I feel my lil girl move all the time now. today has been crazy for movement, where normally she'll usually go an hour or two with no noticable movement, she has been nearly non stop all day, with only 5-10 breaks between kicks. and the doc felt her kick the other day and said she's very strong for being only just over half way done.
