When did you first feel your baby move? I really can't wait to feel it but I am only 15 weeks I am curious as to when I should expect to feel the baby.

I didn't feel my first until until I was 20 weeks and she never was much of a kicker, very subtle movements. My subsequent pregnancies I felt movement around 9-10 weeks. They say you can't but I did.

I felt the first movements at about 16 weeks and have felt them every day since. From everything I have read that is pretty early for a first time mother but it is unmistakably little Maddi using my bladder (and everything else) as a trampoline. Hang in there, you'll feel it soon enough and it will be amazing!

20 weeks! I will die waiting!

They say you can feel subsequent pregnancies a lot earlier because you know what it feels like. I have heard lots of ladies say they felt it around 9-10 weeks so you are not alone.

Mrsdismang - I can't hang in there! I am so anxious to feel it!

between 18 and 20 weeks, BUT it can depend on where the placenta is located as well.

It seems like I felt Tyrael around the time of my big ultrasound, so maybe 17 or 18 weeks. I felt this baby WAY earlier! I swear I first felt her between 10 and 11 weeks. My doctor looked at me like I was crazy when I told him I had felt movement at my first appointment at 11 weeks. Oh well! What does he know anyways? He's not a woman!

I 1st felt Mak move when I was 18wks but nothing consistant until around 24. I could go days between feeling anything and when I did feel something it felt like a goldfish flutter (like when you have a bag of water with a fish in it and you feel the tail hit the side of the bag).

I felt movement with Gaby at 14w3d.... VERY early for a first pregnancy!!! But that said, the movements were very very light until around 20 weeks, and then by 24 weeks they were strong

I felt Kaylie at about 17 weeks. It was strange, it felt like something floated across my tummy.

Don't worry you will feel something soon. And then you will wish that your little one would just stop kicking your bladder and making you pee your pants. O' did no one tell you you would pee your pants more than once? DD could strech out and make me throw up and pee at the same time. It was kinda her signature move

with my first I was sure it was her when I was about 18 weeks. All pregnancies since then I have felt things around 10 weeks, usually is I'm sitting hunched forward to tie shoes or such. I felt my first poke just the other day and I had to wait a minute to see if it was gas LOL

Thank you so much everyone. I guess I might have a bit of a wait ahead of me.

Are you joking? I never heard of that before. Is there ANYTHING good about being pg? (okay well other then the obvious - you get your baby in nine months!) Are you telling me I will pee my pants? I kind of want to cry now...LOL!

Don't worry too much. SOme women have weakened bladdes during and after pregnancy and some women have no issues whatsoever. My best friend has such a weak bladder after having 3 kids that she can still sneeze and pee her pants and if she laughs too much she'll pee. There there's the women of my family and we've got iron bladders. I've never peed myself when I was pg or even now after I had DD. Do your kegels and go when you can...not when you have to and you'll get through it!

I honestly cant remember when I felt my other 4 move first time, but with Mackenzie, I KNEW for sure that she was moving at 17 weeks. There were a few times before I thought it was her, but I never really knew for sure...
