Getting antsy waiting for the first real kicks

I've felt little flutters and such. Last night I felt 3 big kicks to my bladder area. Those are the first BIG kicks ive felt so far, now I want to feel them more. LOL and im getting impatient. Anyone else go through this? and how long after your first big kick did it become regular to feel them? Oh yeah I only feel him when Im lying down :(

  • I wanting to feel them so bad I even convinced myself that I felt them. but they didn't really happen until I was 6months and even then it was very light. I first felt them the night b4 mother's day. I always tell ppl that that was my first mother's day gift. but they didn't get where I could really feel them until like 26 or 28wks, and now that I am 33wks I can't sleep b/c she kicks so much.

    SO TRUST ME! ENJOY THE TIME WHERE YOU CANT FEEL THEM, b/c when you can really start feeling them, your gonna wish the baby would just stop long enough for you to get a good night sleep.! trust me, Im 33wks with my first , and wish I was feeling what you felt, m baby wont even let me sleep at night

  • I could only feel kicks while laying down for a long time, but I would say around 20ish weeks I could feel real kicks, by 22 weeks we could feel them on the outside with our hands. I am almost 29 weeks now and when he gets real crazy in there I can see them, that's been going on around a month or so maybe. I am overweight and thought it was going to take a long time to feel anything, but I would say I am around average. It won't be long now!
