When did you first feel your baby move?

I was just wondering when some of the other mothers on here felt their babies move/kick for the first time. I'm 11 weeks pregnant now, and that's the thing I'm really looking forward to now with this pregnancy. Having never been pregnant before, I'm afraid I'm more than a little anxious about feeling the baby move so I can be ABSOLUTELY SURE that the baby is alive and well and growing big and strong!

  • 13 weeks with both of mine. Average is 16-20 weeks, earlier for later babies.

  • my first I can't remember weeks, but I was 5 maybe 6 months. My second was at 14 weeks and my third I thought was at 10 or 11 weeks, but my OB is telling me that it is probably not the baby kicking yet. I am 23.5 weeks now and I know I feel it now.

  • This is my first, I'm also very thin, and I felt the first little flutters 17 weeks. Kicks shortly after, I just wasn't aware they were "kicks".

  • I started feeling her around 14 weeks, but I wasn't 100% sure if it really was her until 16 or 17 weeks.
