  • I'm around 17 weeks with my first and haven't felt a thing yet. A nurse told me that lots of women feel the baby move sooner with each pregnancy on account of the stomact muscles being weaker than the time before...

  • 15 weeks is still pretty early :) Some women feel it earlier because of how the baby is positioned. Second time moms know what it felt like the first time so they are a little more "in tune" with what's going on, but I don't think you're always going to feel the baby move earlier because every pregnancy is different.

  • I'm only pregnant with my first but I've heard the same thing. You're still really early yet though.

  • I didn't. I just knew how to recognize it better with the second pregnancy. I was around 17/18 weeks with both.

  • I could feel my first at about 16 weeks. I am 13 weeks now and still haven't felt anything that can be ruled as fetal movement.
