  • With my first, I couldn't tell you when I felt the first movement because I didn't quite know what to look for. But I felt the first kick when I was taking a bath around hmm...16-18weeks. Now I'm pregnant with my second and I absolutely felt a flop about the size of an egg way low in my pelvis at a time where there was no gas etc. to confuse that with at 8 weeks, 2 days. I know the baby is smaller than an egg at this point, but I figure there were some vibrations that encompassed the sac and that would be about right. I felt another flop the other day in the same place. I know I won't feel any proper movement for quite a while longer. But this being my second and knowing what to look for, having a more stretched out uterus and not being overweight makes it a little easier.

  • I was about 16 weeks when I felt a little fluttering. Then at about 20 weeks there was a lot of kicking and I could see my tummy moving at about 22 weeks.

  • With my DD, the first time felt her kick I was between 4-5 months (didn't know what to look for before that). And after she started, she didn't stop till she came out! lol
