  • it all depends on the size of your baby, and the size of you. i dont think i felt an actual kick until about 23 weeks. im a bigger girl so theres a lot more fluff for that lil foot to get through lol. but they will come soon enough, and it will happen out of nowhere! and then you wont be able o stop them. but i would sy give it a few weeks and you will definitely be feelin it!

  • well im not that big at all but i felt a flutter until i was about 5 just depends on the size of the baby. i have heard of people not even feeling the baby...but just give it time

  • I wasn't feeling kicks with my first at all until 22 weeks. I felt the flutters with my second just before I was 14 weeks. I was like, that's just not possible, but they only got stronger from there, so I'm positive they were kicks. It actually depends a lot on your amniotic fluid levels. I had tons of fluid with my first, and with the second my levels were so low that I nearly had to have him early.

  • I didn't feel movement until 24th/25th week. They told me the way the placenta was positioned could be why I wasn't able to feel the kicks sooner.

  • I felt my baby kick for the first time at 20 weeks. I was laying in the hospital bed because i was having bad cramps. They had me on this monitor for contractions. I heard these loud noises on the monitor and i asked the nurse what it was and she said it was my baby kicking! So i guess my brain put 2 and 2 together and i felt it and heard it at the same time. It was the coolest thing

  • I am preg with my first, and I felt the first flutters at 20 1/2 wks. I am 22 now and feel flutters more often, but not actual kicks yet!
