  • Sometimes you just don't feel your baby kick until later in your second trimester...It's completely normal. I remember when I felt my first baby boy kick at seventeen weeks, that's when I really knew what it was. I cried! Now he kicks everyday, and sometimes he gets up in my ribs and it hurts...Trust me, you'll feel it soon enough, and then you'll be able to enjoy it all day - and night - long!

  • When I was pregnant if I was up moving I never felt them. The second I sat down to rest, or tried to go to sleep it was like jungle gym time.

  • 21 weeks is when I felt a flutter finally. I didn't feel actual kicks until weeks later.

  • If I drank some orange juice they would usually kick me. You may be a bit early to feel them kicking every day, but I've never been pregnant with multiples. Maybe you could check with your doctor?

  • Every woman feels kicks at different times. Is this your first pregnancy? I know I felt kicking MUCH earlier with my second than with my first. Drinking orange juice usually did the trick to get a good kick though...

  • It all depends on the person, their body, and the baby(s). I'm 28 weeks, and my son started putting in a show only a few weeks ago. My older son though was a kicker very early! it may just be bc you are having twins that they are growing slower to make room for both of them. Either way congrats!!
