  • I felt my son first kick between 24 and 25 weeks. For some people it just takes longer to feel them kicking. If you're worried go to the doctor!

    In a few more weeks you'll be wishing he/she stopped kicking so much! =)

  • i felt swishing before i felt an actual kick. if you haven't felt any movement at all and are worried, talk to your doctor.

  • some women go their intire pregnancy without feeling the baby at all. (just look they ave a whole TV show about it " I Didn't Know I was Pregnant") but like they said above if your worried go to the Dr and get checked out.

  • I am also 5 months and have mainly felt swishes and a few kicks here and there. You might be feeling something and not know it. Is this your first baby? They often kick at night while we sleep (mine likes to move around at 2am), so you could also be missing it. Talk to your OB or Midwife about your worries, but to me it sounds pretty normal.

  • I barely started feeling her move alot this week (23 weeks), before that it just felt like gas bubbles and honestly i thought it was until they put me on a moniter and I could hear her moving around and thats when I connected the feeling to the sound haha. But if you're really concerned just talk to your doc.

  • it's really normal to not feel the baby move until like 23-25 weeks.
