Have you felt your baby move yet?

I'm 23 weeks along now and I can't say I've really felt the baby move. I feel little butterflies in my stomach sometimes but I was expecting a more different feel. When did you start feeling baby move, and what did it feel like?

  • I started feeling little bubbles or flutters around 20 weeks....enjoy the butterfly feeling cause when you get up where I am (34 weeks) it's going to feel like he/she is trying to burst out of your stomach like Alien lol

  • I started feeling it around 22 wks. It was just the flutters then. It soon became more noticeable. Just a little bit ago I was laying down and a whole elbow was poking out under my belly button. LOL. I'm 31 wks now.

  • Is this your first? If it is then you wont feel regular movement until closer to 25 weeks. This is my 3rd pregnancy and I felt this one move at about 17 weeks. In a couple more weeks you will feel the baby kick, roll, punch, etc.

  • I felt my first baby at 14 weeks, second at 12 weeks and third at 12 weeks. It felt like butterflies or something nudgeing me inside. Since I was so skinny and little my dr said it was possible to feel it that early.

  • Guuuuurrrrl enjoy that while it lasts. Like some of the women said above...once they start kicking harder, its no fun. My little guy woke me up out of a dead sleep the other night because he kicked me so hard. I've almost peed myself because he just seems to enjoy playing hacky sac with my bladder when its full.

  • HAHA thanks guys. Well I was just kind of concerned that I hadn't felt much of anything but I now know what I have to look forward to! Thanks :)
