  • I was 17 weeks before I felt my baby move. It really depends on where the placenta is and how much belly fat you have to be honest.

  • You should be feeling the movement of the baby real soon if you don't already. It really is an awesome feeling.

  • My friend was obese not just overweight and she said she never felt the baby move and she had a 9 pounder not saying your obese or anything bc i dk and sometimes it has to do w where your placenta is mine was low so I felt it ealry so if its blocking the kicking area you'll feel it later

  • with my first i felt her move about 20 weeks. with my second it was about 14 weeks. you may not be paying close enough attention, or just not know what it feels like. drink some orange juice and lay down for a while without distractions and pay really close attention.

  • This is my 3rd and this time around I am overweight because of PCOS and I felt the baby move at 14 weeks but maybe I just know what to look for or as others have stated it all depends on where your placenta lays. I am sure it will be soon, some don't feel anything until 22-24 weeks or even further along.
