    I wasat pies around 16 weeks when the bubbles started. That’s what it felt like to me, bubbles rolling across my stomach, too low for stomach bubbles. Then it got stronger and more persistent, especially if I was sitting leaning over “squishing” him. 

    Just this past week at 21 weeks did I start feeling him move on the outside. My mom and brother has felt him move but he is stubborn when it comes to DH, lol!

    The first real kick, I believe was around 17 or 18 weeks.  Before that, I felt some sort of movement, sometimes confused with *maybe* gas, but it was def baby, until one day I finally got a real strong very unmistable kick!  It hasnt stopped since it started.  Now, my little boy throws parties in there and doesnt invite me.  Its the best!

    Very light taps and tickles around 14ws an then distinct that’s coming from baby movement around 16ws. I think it all depends on your body type and how baby is positioned though.

    14 weeks I felt like bubbles were popping in my stomach. My obgyn laughed at me and said it was baby. By 20 weeks dh could clearly feel it. Now at 26 weeks my uterus is the main stage for riverdance.

    18 weeks and I felt kicks first, no bubbles or flutters or anything.

    I felt them at work, probably because it was quiet and I was just sitting there.  I couldn’t feel them over the that next weekend.

    @Evie19:  I was around the 12 week mark when I started feeling little bubbles in my lower abdomen. I felt it on a work trip actually while I was talking to DH. Around week 15 they started becoming more frequent I’d say. At about the 20 week mark the kid started actually kicking. Now I can’t keep him quiet 🙂

    13-14 weeks with is time around (2nd pregnancy). 

    You feel them more after your first,also placement of the placenta, and your weight all make a difference in how soon movement is felt. 

    The first few times it felt like popping (like pop rock candy) and then a week later it felt like something rolling along the inside of my belly (Kind of like a big marble back and forth), and then jabs started.

    Im 23 weeks almost and now it’s sharp jabs and turning or shifting.

    At 14 weeks I was laying in bed, and I SWEAR I felt someone poke me… Inside my tummy! But I was convinved there was NO WAY it was baby. (It was!)

    Then I felt her kick again at 15w, and 15.5w. And starting at 16w, I started feel ing her at least once a day! The doctors later confirmed that she’s a REALLY active baby, and I had the good fortune of having a posterior placenta, so it was easier for me to feel the kicks!

    I was 16 weeks when I started feeling the rolls.  I think I was an early 18 weeks when the real kicks started, and shortly after my husband could feel them.

    At 19 weeks the kicks were visible.

    It’s an amazing feeling, definitely something to look forward to!

    (I also have an anterior placenta)

    I felt flutters but I was hesitant to call them ‘baby.’ At 16 weeks 6 days I felt a definite ‘pop pop pop’ all in the exact same place and I knew it then for sure! Same as a pp – I could see my tummy moving from the outside by about 19-20 weeks. I also have an anterior placenta.

    Between 17 and 18 weeks was when I first started feeling them. I’m 18w4d now and last night DH felt it for the first time when I was lying down.
