I am twenty weeks pregnant, and I still haven't felt the baby move yet. When did everyone start to feel the baby move. This is my first pregnancy and I am overweight.

  • I have some extra pounds and I felt her at 16/17 weeks and this is my first. I would feel her one day and then not feel her again for a few days. My doctor told me that it may take some women up to 24 weeks (big or small) before they feel the baby. A coworkers wife is due the same day as me with her second and she didnt feel the baby till this week (23/24 weeks along) because her placenta was in the front. Talk to your doctor about it at your next appointment, it could ease your mind.

  • when you're overweight it takes longer to feel the baby. the smaller you are the earlier you'll feel him/her. it'll feel like a little flutter at first.

  • I felt mine at about 4 months, but I was small.

  • i felt my first move at 16 weeks and my second sooner, although i don't remember when exactly. i just knew what it felt like so i recognized it sooner. i'm pretty thin though and i've heard that overweight women take longer to feel anything.

  • It took me a while to realize that that's what I was feeling. I started to feel it pretty early, but it was always while I was in the car so I thought it was just the vibrations from my engine. I think I was about 18 weeks or so.
