  • You won't feel it regularly for a good couple of months. Try not to fret yet! Before 28 weeks, you really can't count on feeling something every day.
    I got my first flutters around 14 weeks, but most women feel them around 18 (on average).

  • With first pregnancy it was late. Like 32 weeks. But that's because I was 15 and didn't know what it was supposed to feel like. With second one it was about 18 weeks I think.

  • I started feeling flutters around 15 weeks (baby #2) and I'm almost 18 weeks now and I feel the baby typically every evening when I'm just chilling out, I rarely feel anything during the day.

  • 16 weeks with first, 11 weeks with second, and first time i felt flutter was 11 weeks with 3rd...but, i am 19 weeks tomorrow and i hardly feel the baby move too. i guess each pregnancy is different and i hear if you already have extra tummy fat, it will take awhile to feel the baby kick...doc says after 20 weeks, i should feel he or she more.

  • Well at this point all you can feel is flutters which you may think is gas or could might not feel anything at all. Just wait a month or two, the baby will start kicking hard!

  • I thought I felt flutters at 8 wks, and Im only 10 wks now. They say thats not possible, but Im not so sure about that.

  • 1st baby- 18 weeks. I didn't feel them often. After 30 weeks, I had to do daily kick counts because she just didn't move much.
    2nd baby- 15 weeks. I felt them much more often and never had to do kick counts because he was so active all the time.
    3rd baby- 16 weeks. I didn't feel them daily at first. Just a flutter, then a couple days later- another flutter. He was average on the active scale.
