  • You will definitely start feeling your baby around 5 months, sometimes sooner.

  • Alright so if this is your first baby you might not start to feel them moving until around 20 weeks. I felt my baby around 20-21 weeks with my first and then around 17 weeks with my second. However I did feel flutters around 17 weeks with my first and 12 weeks with my second.

  • I was 20 weeks before I felt anything.

  • Depending on how far you are now and you are anxious to feel your baby move, you can lay on your back and press down on your tummy just below your belly-button. You might have to press kind of hard depending on how much cushion you have there. You might feel something run across your finger(s) This won't hurt your baby. If you don't feel it this time, try again in a week. My friend felt her first baby at about 15 weeks this way and she felt better. I was able to feel my third one at about 12 weeks this way. Good luck.

  • I felt mine at about 17 weeks and it was just kind of all of a sudden...kind of like little bubbles where the baby is

  • It depends. I had placenta issues and never felt my oldest son. But my youngest son started kicking the crap out of me around 16 weeks. So it depends on the child.

  • I remember it starting at about 18 weeks, but my friends did not until 22 weeks.
