  • it depends, if you have already had a child you can feel him/her sooner because you know what it feels like! Most first time mothers feel it around 23-25 weeks! Good luck i hope you feel your little one soon! ITS AMAZING!

  • This is my first pregnancy and I first felt the movements at 16 weeks and I first felt the kicks at 19 weeks.

  • I think it is "normal" to start to feel the fluttery movements of your baby in the womb somewhere around 17-20 weeks. I think I felt mine moving around sooner at around 14 weeks, although everyone said it was just gas. :-)

  • I felt my baby move for the first time when I was about 17 weeks..it was just a little flutter. Its truly amazing. Now I am 20 weeks and feel it even more! :)

  • I read up on this a lot and there are 2 things that could cause this to vary. Your second kid you will notice them earlier because you know what they are. Second, thinner women notice it sooner (straight from my doctors mouth). I felt my son at 16 weeks and I was 127lbs when I got pregnant.
