I first felt kicks from the outside with my last 4 pregnancy's around 17-18wks. However, one of them was about 19wks due to an anterior placenta. I was just thinking the other day, how I found it more exciting to feel those flutters than I do the actual kicks. At this stage for me, I have to count kicks a couple times a day, and when I don't feel kicks, I get all full of anxiety. With the flutters around 12-16wks, I just smiled and enjoyed them when they came.....not really worrying if it was not enough......each little flutter made my whole face smile! I still enjoy feeling him move, don't get me wrong, but I guess I just find this part more tense then in the beginning. Make sense?
