  • Anytime now, but for sure about 24 weeks. At this point I feel a lot of movement and often but my partner only feels bumps when he touches my belly. The baby still has a lot of room to move around so you won't feel everything. Soon... real soon!

    (I am 22 weeks as well and having a girl.)

  • the flutters are the baby moving.. they will slowly start getting stronger from here.. mostly between 25-30 weeks they will become more noticable. But it also depends on where the baby is. My second pregnancy (the one I'm pregnant with now), I can feel more than I could with my first because she's a lot lower than my first and more toward the front. My first seemed like she was more toward my back and in my rib area. lol.

  • I felt the firdt flutter at about 4 months the first kick or punch was maybe a month later. Both caught me off gaurd. But it will happen more often and will b more powerful. It felt almost like a pulse in my belly at first... the best is when u can c the belly moving. Dnt worry it will happen very soon and it is an amazing feeling everytime that will make u smile. I used to talkd to my belly rub it and sing even stimulation like that before the baby is born can help with development. When she was born I sang the same song to her asi did when she was in mybelly and she lookd at me and knew it I swear!

  • it depends on how your baby is growing. i felt mine at 22 weeks or before. everyone is different.

  • I am at 21 weeks and I am still only feeling flutters as well after my big ultrasound last week I found out that the placenta is in the front and my doc told me that it is possible that the positioning of it might hinder how much movement I can feel for a while...good luck!
