  • I felt kicking by 18 weeks.

  • I felt kicking between 18 and 20 weeks. However, the position of the baby and the position of your uterus and placenta can cause it to be more difficult to feel the baby move.

  • I felt movement at 14 weeks but this is my 3rd so you detect movements earlier in more frequent pregnancies

  • I felt her first movements around 14 weeks off and on but didn't start feeling them regularly until around 22 weeks.

  • With my 1st it was around 18 weeks, With my 2nd it was around 16 weeks and with my 3rd it was around 14 weeks maybe a little sooner.

  • I felt kicking at 16 weeks with my first and about 14 weeks with my second and third but I was "skinny" and it was much easier to feel any movements .Some of my friends didn't feel a thing until 6 or 7 months. It is all different for all of us.

  • I'm 20 weeks now, and I was feeling her at about 17 1/2 weeks. But this is also my 2nd pregnancy. With my first, I didn't know I was pregnant til I was 6 months, so I didn't feel movement til then (and even then, it was only light flutters every now and then).

  • With my first child, I started feeling her moving around 20 weeks. Like you, I had had no symptoms before that, so even with the ultrasound it was hard to feel like I was actually pregnant.
