  • I first felt my daughter move two days after my ultrasound. I was 20 weeks. I was laying in bed and I felt something in my lower abdomen. They were faint after that for about 10 days then they really started coming. The coolest feeling in the world..until she started kicking me in my rib cage

  • They say generally anywhere from 16-20 weeks for first kicks.

  • I think it was around the 18th week with my first and then earlier with the second. It is great when it happens.

  • When I first felt my baby move, I was only 14 weeks along. At first it'll feel like you have a nervous feeling (A.K.A. Butterflies in your stomach) then a few weeks after that it'll feel like you're having muscle spasms. But they'll be nothing to worry about.
