  • With my first, I didn't really feel anything until week 24ish when I went on a plane ride. On descent, she started kicking the crap out of me!

    With this one, I started feeling movements around week 16 or so, and then from the outside you could feel movement at about 18 weeks.

  • 13 weeks for both of mine. Don't remember when they could be felt on the outside.

  • I felt butterflies at 13 weeks. Squirming at 16 to 20 weeks. Nudges at 21-23 weeks. Kicks 24+. The really "good" kicks come around 28 weeks. Thats when your belly looks like an earthquake. Sometimes he would kick me so hard my whole upper body would move! After week 32 it slows down because baby runs out of room in there. So you will feel more rolls and stretches, and of course my favorite.... HICCUPS!! :) Congratulations!
