Has anyone felt the baby move yet in their first pregnancy?
This is my first and I am 19 weeks pregnant. I had the ultrasound done 5 days ago and they took a while to get still pictures because the baby kept moving and rolling around. lol.. So cute. But I still can't feel it. I know this is normal. Some people don't feel it until week 22 or so. I just can't wait to start feeling him. :-)
Usually with your first, it takes a while longer if only because you don't really know what it feels like to begin with. I can't remember when I felt my first dc move (it's been 15 years!!!!) but I do know that I've felt movement earlier and earlier with each pregnancy. With this one, I've felt little rolls and "flutters" and one definite kick but nothing other than that.
With my first I felt him at 16 weeks but my hubs could not felt him until 18weeks. This time I felt baby at 14 weeks and just yesterday felt a kick or punch from the outside at almost 19weeks! Everyone is different. As long as he was moving on the ultrasound your all good! It is exciting though. Not sure if size matters but I'm very petite and slender normally
I have felt movement sporadically for a while now but lately it has been more and more consistent. It all depended on where she was at. My placenta is towards my belly button but very high so when she is sitting high, I don't feel her much. But she dances around in there quite often. My fiancé felt her for the first time two nights ago.. Almost EVERYONE else that I've talked to though says they didn't start feeling anything positively and consistently until 22+ weeks, especially with their first. It'll come!
With my first I didn't feel anything til after 20 weeks. With this guy I only feel the really strong movements if I'm wearing really tight jeans. Otherwise it's really light and I think if this was my first I wouldn't have realized it. I felt the baby hiccups yesterday and there's no way I would have realizedwhat it was if I hadn't felt hiccups before.
I started feeling (very) sporadic flutters around 12 weeks. I wasn't sure it was baby, but felt it one day while listening to her on the Doppler, and it coincided with the sound of her moving around, so I knew what I was looking for then.
This past week I've started feeling her at least once or twice a day. Hoping to feel real kicks and punches soon - right now it just tickles mostly.
I am 21 weeks 3 days and I still have not felt baby girl move. It is driving me nuts!! I thought I felt some kicks earlier on but I never felt anything like it so who knows what it was! My doctor keeps assuring me it is normal.
Thank you *Kiliki* for the amazing siggy!!
I only feel little flutters or movement occasionally (It is 19 weeks for me, my second pregnancy). I know it took me a while last time to feel it too. I think sometimes I second guess myself and wonder if it was something else. You'll feel it before long
