  • Usually 16-18 weeks is the norm. I started feeling little flutters early on but I wasn't sure if it was the baby (they're SO tiny in the first trimester, I couldn't say if anything I felt was him or not). It was at 18 weeks that I felt something that I KNEW it was him. They say you won't feel the baby on a consisten basis (as in 10 times every hour) untl 24-28 weeks.
