  • could take as long as 24 weeks to feel it, especially first time pregnancies.

  • It takes longer to feel the baby if it's your first pregnancy...and it varies from woman to woman. Body shape/size can have something to do with it. It's common for very small women to feel the baby sooner than someone who is carrying more weight.

    I felt my first at 19 weeks, so it could be very soon for you! :) :)

  • It's possible to not feel the baby's movements until about 26 wks. But usually it's sooner than that.

  • I didn't feel Liam until I was 22 weeks along and you remember how thin I was then! I felt Christian around 18-20 weeks and my DD at 16 weeks. With every week this pregnancy, you'll feel your son getting stronger and then the kicks really start to hurt, LOL!
