  • Is it your first? I think it may be a bit early.

  • I'm trying to remember... I don't think I felt my baby kick until around 22 wks. She was my first. I've heard you feel it sooner with a subsequent pregnancy.

  • Everyone is different, but I felt movement like little flutters at 14-15 weeks. It's not to early. People will constantly tell you it is, but are they in your belly? no. So how would they know. I wouldnt worry just yet though. When I wanted to make her kick, I would drink a glass of cold water and lay down and she would start up. Movement rocks and lulls the baby to sleep, so try to be still and you may get lucky :)

  • I'd say it's early, yes. Give it a few more weeks. If you haven't felt it by the time you're due for an ultra sound, might wanna ask the doc. =)

  • Everyone is different. they say by 22 weeks you should be feeling baby move, so give it some time :)

  • If it's your first you might not feel it till around 20 weeks.

  • i didnt start feeling mine move until around 22 23 weeks and i was like you with being concerned. I thought that i was supposed to be feeling her kick by then but eventually it happens. lol. And while it is amusing and cool to watch ( your belly jumping and rolling) it can be uncomfortable. Babies get to kicking underneath your ribs and you sometimes have to gently try to push them down. It is still awesome though! just wait and you will feel it!!
