  • Like mommy5409 I didn't feel my first moving around til the middle of my second trimester. But, with my second I felt the fluttery movements long before I was showing that I was pregnant. Sure was months before my husband could feel the same movements with his hand.

    From what I've read/heard that will happen with consecutive pregnancies, unless the pregnancies are 10+ years apart. If there's THAT much age difference your body will forget what it's like to BE pregnant so it's like the first all over again.

  • y first I didn't feel until almost 6 months. My second I started feeling at 14 weeks and this one it isn't all the time, but I felt this baby the first week at like 7-9 weeks. I say 7-9 because I was feeling something but wasn't sure if it was the baby until 9 weeks. I thought that it was way to early to feel the baby that soon. I don't feel like strong kicks or anything it is more like flutters. and not everyday.

  • My placenta was in the front and I have very thick abdominal muscles, so it wasn't until almost 24 weeks for me. It was just like over night she started kicking so hard I could see it through the skin. I'm 34 weeks now and she still hasn't stopped and I love it!

  • with my first around 12 weeks I could feel flutters, he was kicking around 18 weeks. With this one I didn't feel anything at all until about 16 weeks, I felt light little flutters. Now I'm 20 weeks and she kicks hard enough my stomach moves. My placenta is placed differently this time and I've had fluid level concerns so I think both contribute to the feeling differences. Its always different with every person and every pregnancy.
