  • Its just a flutter or a little bump. Its an awesome feeling. You will know it when it happens. Usually at 16 weeks. Its get more frequent then by 3rd trimester it slows down cos baby has less room to move around in.
    For me, its literally a kick or punch from inside. Very soothing and sweet.

  • Well, considering I didn't know I was preg. until I was 19wks and 3 days, I would say sometimes longer. Like 22 or 23 weeks.

  • I am pregnant with my 1st and I felt him move around 18 weeks. It's possible however to feel it before/after then. If you aren't feeling anything by 22 weeks you should let your doctor know but up until then its kind of just different for everyone! Its so fun and weird!
