  • Its more than likely your baby!
    17 weeks is about that time, though some people dont feel it until 20 or even as late as 23.
    I felt LIGHT LIGHT LIGHT movements almost didnt notice them and passed it off as gas, but the more I felt it the more I new it was my litle one. Im 29 weeks today, and still My kicks and elbows arent that strong, Im just lucky I guess though!
    He moves alot, but its nothing to freak out over!
    good luck mama

  • if you read the books they all tell u it depends on ur body type and if you have more than one child you kno what to feel for. It feels like water waves butterflies i felt my baby at 14 going on 15 and ...the best trick is to lay quiet in a room and relax after you eat and you should feel something...:)
