I'm 350 pounds and about 5'9", I'm ashame to say I weight that much and yes...I know I'm big, no need to remind me. I am 22 weeks pregnant. I think I've been feeling the baby move, not too sure. But if there are any overweight women out there with advice or anything, please reply back. :(

Like when did you feel your baby move and what does it feel like? I don't know what to look for.

I assume this is your first? With my first I had no idea I was even preggo until I was 17 wks, I felt the baby for the first time around 19 or 20 I believe. I think being large doesn't effect your feeling the movement, it may just effect feeling the movement from the outside once your farther along. But I am not for sure baout that! And with my first I never noticed the flutters, I didn't notice movements until it was what felt like a huge barrell role, and kicks! Like someone putching me from the inside out! Hope that helps hun!

Quoting missjlock:

I am overweight weighing 238 at 22 weeks. I felt the baby move with this one aroun 19 or 20 wks this time. But with my first pregnancy, I was as heavy as I am now.... I didnt know I was pregnant til I was 3 months and remember feeling him move around 5 months. Hope this helps some.. :)

I am 5'4" and I weighed about 280 when I got pregnant with my first and felt him at 20 weeks. I weighed about the same when I got pregnant with my second and also felt him at 20 weeks. I don't know how much I weighed when I GOT pregnant with my twins but by the time they were born I weighed 368... my highest weight ever. I also felt them at 20 weeks. After they were born I lost 107 pounds and got down to 261 which is how much I weighed when I got pregnant with this baby and I started feeling movement at around 15 weeks this time. Not sure if it had anything to do with my weight or just the fact that this is my 5th baby.

Don't be ashamed. Just do what you can to stay healthy during your pregnancy. Eat right and drink LOTS of water : )

I'm 5'7" and 186. This is our 4th baby, but I'm not really feeling anything yet even though I'm 15w 3d. This is the latest one to feel so far. I'm wondering if it's because my placenta is moved in front or something or if it's because I'm overweight, but I was overweight with the last two also and felt them by now.
