Just wondering for all of you ladies.

I'm at 17 weeks now and I still haven't felt much at all. Nothing I would call movement, anyway, just aches and pains from my uterus stretching, I believe.

I hit 20 weeks a few days ago & just started feeling movement in the last few days. Baby has been very active the last 2-3 days.

16 weeks I felt the first little kicks. Almost 18 weeks now and feel them just about every day now. Didn't feel anything with DD until I was 19 weeks due to anterior placenta.

I felt the first flutters around 12 weeks but they weren't very regular. It's only now at nearly 20 weeks that I have been feeling movements on a daily basis.

With my first I was 20 weeks before I felt anything, 18 weeks with my second and 16 weeks with my third.

I thought I felt movement as early as 14 weeks, but I KNOW I've been feeling them since 16 weeks. Very light flutters occasionally and every now and then I'll feel an actual bump (not sure if it's a kick or jab. LOL).

if this is your first it might be a few more weeks before you feel anything, its not that baby isnt moving, its that the movements arent obvious kicks yet so you just dont notice thats what they are. I dont think its all the uncommon for FTM not to feel anything until 20+ week (my book says 18-25 weeks is when you will start feeling things) it can also depend on your build, placenta location and where baby is hanging out

dont worry, your little one will be kicking up a storm soon

DD1 was almost 18 weeks, DD2 was around 20 weeks, and i'm still feeling flutters now. Sometimes it takes awhile to feel movement, but like the other ladies said soon baby will just be kicking away and you'll be feeling it.

I'd say probably around 16 weeks, but it was VERY questionable movement type flutters. It wasnt until last week (19.5 wks) that I felt real, strong, consistent movement.

14-15 weeks sporadically, but 19 weeks every day. It gets a little stronger each day, it seems. I am starting to feel him flip and turn, which is always fun.

Thank you Jaidynsmum for my awesome siggie!!

I am just feeling little flutters and an occasional stronger feeling but it is not a huge feeling. My doctor said 16-22 weeks to feel it.

I was about 15 weeks when I noticed there would be butterfly flutters, but now that I'm 18 weeks I notice a lot more jabbing and poking.

I'm about as far along as you and I haven't felt anything yet either. I have an anterior placenta, which can prevent me from feeling early movement. I had the same thing with my first and I didn't feel him move until after 19 weeks.

I'm getting pretty anxious to feel something. I try to lay down quietly at least once a day, but no luck so far.

Last week at my midwife appt she had a hard time getting a heart beat reading because baby was moving around so much, go figure & I can't feel anything!

I started feeling movement about a week ago. Nothing regular, just the occassional baby party going on in my belly, lol, when this little guy moves he/she really goes crazy!

I am 16weeks just a few days ago I have noticed fluttery feelings when I lay on my side in bed but it is very questionable since this is my first! My sister told me she didn't feel anything until 24weeks, so I am not too worried about feeling something right away.
