  • try laying on your belly sometime you can feel more then i am 17 weeks 1 day... this is also my first you probably wont actually feel the real kicks till around 20 weeks because we don't know what to look for... :] congrats

  • I started feeling flutters at either 12 or14 weeks i forget... the dr told me it was probably just gas but it wasn't because i could tell a difference. But I started feeling obvious kicks around 5 months. And you could see my stomach moving constantly at 6 months. I still remember at christmas my brother was watching my tummy because he was moving so much it was so funny :)

  • I only weighed 105lbs when I got pregnant which i think made it easier for me to feel what's going on in there, but I started to feel movement around 16 weeks, I'm at 27 weeks now and I can't BELIEVE how much she moves! and I can see her moving when I look at my belly (that started at about 22 weeks for me)
