  • Some don't feel the baby until 23 weeks or so, especially when it's your first. Typicaly you won't feel anything at 15 weeks, maybe a flutter or pop but nothing more, baby is too small to feel

  • I didn't feel anything until between 18-20 weeks, and even then the movements weren't really strong. A couple weeks after that, the movements were stronger and became somewhat predictable (he seemed to be more active at night for example), and even my DH could feel them sometimes.

  • When I was pregnant with my first my OB told me I could feel it anywhere from 17-20 something weeks. Sometimes if it is someone's second or so on pregnancy they might feel it sooner.

  • I felt taps at 16wks and kicks at 19wks. Every woman is different and it might be the way the baby is positioned.

  • I didn't feel my first until about 18 weeks and then it wasn't consistant until almost 22 weeks. My son, i was able to feel around 16 weeks, but nothing consistant until 18-19 weeks.

  • take a breath, its okay! with my first i didnt feel any kicks till 20 weeks. right now im 14 weeks and i havent felt anything yet that i can say "oh yeah thats the baby". most women dont feel anything till 16-20 weeks and it probably wont be consistent till after 23 weeks. your totally normal!
