@eecuadrado:   I started feeling more vigorous movement that I definitely knew were kicks around 18 weeks. Sometimes I still feel flutters and sometimes I feel definite kicks. I’m 19 + 6. I think feeling kicks for the first time can occur up to about 22 weeks. Do you have an anterior placenta? That could make the kicks feel softer 🙂

@eecuadrado:  Week 20 I started feeling them very well and consistantly (prior to that I felt him roll one time). It’s kind of funny because it was like after finding out he was a boy, that was the moment he stopped being a shy guy. Now that’s all he does is kick/flutter, most of the time it is small flutters. However, last night I drank an Orange Julius, and I thought he was going to come busting out of there. He didn’t quit for about 10 minutes, which is the longest streaks of kicks I’ve ever felt.

I have him timed. He kicks when I’m hungry, after I eat, when I am under stress, and when I wake up in the middle of the night. Those are his for sure times.

I felt kicks right at 18w.  I never felt any flutters FWIW.  The first few weeks, I only felt them at work sporadically (it’s quiet and I’m sitting down) not at home or on the weekends.  If you have an anterior placenta, that can mean you won’t feel movement until closer to 21 or 22 weeks.  So that could be a possibility.

Have you tried eating or drinking something sweet? I know my little man reacts to sweet. Maybe try that and sit quietly for about 15 minutes afterward and see if you notice a difference?

@eecuadrado:  It was more like, “MOM!! MOM!! THE SUGAR!! I WANT MORE!! MORE JUICE! MORE JUICE!” He was a psycho in there lol. It is a very cool feeling. I try to embrace it more than tell him to quit because its the only way we truly “communicate” and I know he is ok.

Now when he sits under my rib or kicks my bladder? THEN he gets an earful 😛

The ultrasound tech told me I had an anterior placenta, so I didn’t really feel things until a few weeks ago.  I think that was around 20 weeks or so.

However, once I felt that first good hard kick, I’ve been feeling them regularly. The baby loves to kick me in the middle of the night, almost every single night.  The other times during the day are pretty sporadic.

@eecuadrado:  Yes, OJ worked for me.  I drank some before my ultrasound and she was going crazy.  You could try drinking some OJ and then sitting somewhere quiet for an hour to see if you can feel anything.
