I am just curious how often everyone is feeling movement. I started to feel baby around 16 weeks or so. I have felt definite kicks just a few times. I have also felt what seems like the baby rolling around, but it has been a while. I definitely don't feel movements everyday, not even every other day. I am currently 19 weeks. Is this normal?

So how often do you feel the baby, and how far along are you?

If you feel movements everyday, when did you start feeling it everyday?

I'm 17.5 weeks, I started feeling baby everyday starting 16 weeks. Started maybe only once or twice per day but I feel little episodes of movement like 5-6 times a day now. Every baby is different though, dont sweat it!

I will be 22 weeks on Tuesday. I feel baby everyday. Not all the time when I'm awake but a lot of the time. Some days he is way more active than others.

I started feeling the baby this week. And it's only been a couple times. Nothing super strong or really obvious. I know with a couple of my kids, I didn't notice daily until after 21 weeks.

I felt the first 'flutters' at about 13/14 weeks. I started feeling her everyday at about 18weeks. I am now 21 weeks and I feel her about 5 times a day at least. Lately I have been woken up or kept awake at night with the kicking.

I feel him every day but, like some of the others said, some days he is quieter than others. Usually he is awake around 5am, I have a snack, and go back to sleep and I think he does too because I dont feel him again until around 10ish and then between 1-4 he is usually quiet. Dinner time he is usually awake, goes back to sleep and then is up from 8pm-ish on. Yesterday he wouldnt let me sleep at 10pm. He was doing a roll and then a kick and then a roll and then a kick..etc. UGHHHHH.

I am 19.5 weeks, and I've been feeling baby every day. I'd say it's been every day for at least 2 weeks, maybe more. Some days are much more than others though. I think there's lots of variation in this, and what you're describing still sounds normal to me.

I do feel him move evefy day at this point, but not always frequently. Some days, I feel nothing for very long periods. Wednesday, he repeatedly kicked hard enough for my son to easily feel it. It has not been like that since Very unpredictable at this point. I think his position has everyting to do with it. I have an anterior placenta, so I only feel kicks very high or loa.

Thank you so much Kris2you for my lovely siggy!!!

I started feeling mine regularly at 18 weeks. I felt the first movements at about 15 though. I do feel him daily, but not all the time. Most of the movements are after meals or when I'm laying down.

When I got my u/s he was moving all over the place, and I was only able to feel a few kicks.

I know feeling movement varies from mom to mom/baby to baby...but I started feeling movement around 16 weeks and I'm 18 weeks today. They past 3-4 days I've been feeling her move a lot. Probably every few hours I feel a quick little flutter.

I feel baby move everyday now... but I started feeling flutters around 16 weeks and first felt kicks this past week. He/she is way more active at night when I'm laying down but will occasionally kick during the day. DH felt it for the first time a few days ago, it was awesome.
