  • I'm not sure about the low feeling...But I know my doctor made me wait untill 20 weeks to find out what I was having

  • Considering that your uterus doesn't go above the belly button until around 20 weeks I would say you should be feeling the kicks low. Don't worry, your little one is fine.

  • i'm 28 weeks along and i still feel him kicking down there sometimes. it depends on if he's got is feet down there or if he turns over and kicks my ribs instead. =) as for the gender, most drs wait to 20 weeks or later, but i believe an experienced dr could tell at 16 weeks if they get a good view. although they might still do a follow up later and double check. things are still pretty small down there. =)

  • I'm 22 weeks and still feel the occasional kick down there.
    Some doctors can tell early whether it's a boy or girl. It's best to go no earlier than 18-20 weeks. I won't find out until tomorrow.
    Good luck!
