  • I didn't start really feeling my baby move until I was around 22 weeks. But before that I felt consistant thumping in my lower belly for about a minute and I thought it was just gas but I found out that it was the baby and he had the hiccups. Its my first pregnancy and like someone above said if its your first you don't know what you are supposed to feel. But believe me when you really do feel it for the first time you will know it and its an awesome feeling. Good Luck!

  • you should be feeling it already.... do you get what feels like air bubbles in your belly, or do you feel gassy but can't fart? that's the baby

  • I had a moment during week 19 where I thought I felt it. I was able to feel her more during week 20 when nothing was going on and I was just relaxing. After week 20 I started to feel her all the time then.

  • Im 17 weeks and I feel little tiny bumps or movement. Honestly it feels like gas bubbles so it can be a little confusing

  • Is it your first baby? It can take longer to feel your first since you don't know what you're supposed to be feeling. I'm expecting #3 after a 7 year break and just started feeling the baby move at 20 weeks.
