  • it is different for everyone i started feeling my daughter kick when i was about 17 weeks along but you should definatly feel your baby kick by 20 weeks it just feels like butterflies or gas at first until they get stronger

  • with a first baby it's 16-22 weeks but it can be sooner for flutters and such with subsequent pregnancies.....i felt my second at 14 weeks

  • I felt my baby kick around 16 weeks but not if I was standing. it was weird but I had to be either laying down or sitting in a relaxed position on the couch. I would just sit there and relax watching my stomach waiting for him to kick. it feels so cool!

  • I would say I was 16 or 17 weeks when I first felt the baby move. It felt like I was flicked in the belly. I would only notice every few days, but by 19-20 weeks I was feeling baby a few times a day. By 22+ weeks it was more of a pattern to when baby would kick or move around.

  • Around 16 weeks, which everyone said was early for a first pregnancy. It was easier to feel lying on my stomach until baby got stronger.
