how soon can you feel it?

How soon can you start feeling the baby move? I'm so anxious to feel something that every little rumble in my tummy i wanna associate with the baby! When will i get the butterfly feeling? When will I actually feel the baby moving?

  • It just depends, I started to feel movement at 16 weeks, but it really didn't get frequent until about 28.

  • I felt the first kick at about 17 weeks but that was only about once every few days. She got much more active between 22-23 weeks

  • First baby, I think about 18 weeks for flutters and by 20 weeks, I could feel kicks occasionally.
    Second and third, everything happens faster.
