  • When I was pregnant with DD1, I felt her around 20 weeks, and could feel her outside around 25 weeks. I'm 22 weeks with DD2, and I have only been feeling her move for about a week (which is weird because normally your second pregnancy it happens earlier). I can already feel her from the outside very slightly (SO can't feel it yet).

  • I felt it at 21 weeks and I think it was a few weeks til you could really feel it from the outside. For larger women like me you can't feel movement as much as a skinnier woman could.

  • 17 weeks I felt flutters, and little pokes that my boyfriend could also feel from the outside. Week after week they just keep getting stronger.
