Feeling the kicks?!

I'm coming up to 16 weeks and I was told I'd start feeling the baby kick... but no signs yet...


When do you start feeling your baby kick?

With Alexis it was around 20-21 weeks, my placenta was on the front which they say makes it harders to feel kicks and I wasnt sure what I was feeling at first.


With Hunter is was much sooner because I knew what it felt like- id say around 15-16 weeks with him.

I was around 16-17, but there were two fighting in there so it's common to feel movement much earlier, I guess my boys were lazy!!

Right before I hit 20 weeks! Although, I think now that I know what it feels like, I think I started feeling the flutters around 18wks, but KICKS were 20wks:)

I'd say around week 17 however I was convinced it was gas. I didn't know it was baby until my 20 Wm ultrasound when the tech asked if I could feel her kicking and I said "oh, that's what that is!"

I felt flutters around 17 weeks, I think. Kicks (esp those DH or I could feel on the outside) didnt happen for me until about 19-20 weeks.

I started feeling flutters at 15/16 weeks but wasn't sure if it was the baby until about 20 weeks when those sensations turned into little pops and jabs :)

I felt them right at 20 weeks...and they did not stop for the rest of the pregnancy! It's is a myth that the baby moves less towards the end...they just move differently...more rolls than jabs!

I felt movement around 20/21 weeks. Like Christy, I have an anterior placenta so movement had to be stronger before I could feel them!
