  • With my first I felt her move at 16 weeks. With my second I felt her move at 14 weeks. With my current pregnancy I felt baby move at 12 weeks :) it depends. It feels like flutters or gas bubbles :)

  • With my first, probably around 16 or 17 weeks. A little earlier with subsequent pregnancies.

  • I am very soon and started feeling flutters, at 17 weeks weeks. Kicks about 19 weeks... I've heard of bigger women definitely feeling movement around 12 weeks. It all depends!
