I started feeling the baby at 18 weeks (earlier, I felt flutters, but this was when I felt actual kicks) and hubby could feel them a week or two later. I feel this baby ALL the time – I’m now 29 weeks and she is big enough and strong enough, and has enough room to pack a wallop. More than once DH and I have ben snuggling, and he mentions that baby girl has “kicked him in the back”!

As far as I know, this baby is a singleton. Or, she’d better be! Although sometimes, it is shocking how I can feel kicks on one side of my belly and the extreme other side at the same time/close together. There had better not be a hideaway in there!

My little boy was very active in utero.  He kicked all the time!

@SqueezedUniverse:  I felt our baby for the first time at 12 weeks, then nothing until 16 weeks. Since then (I am now 32 weeks), our LO is non stop. In particular for a good half an hour when I hop into bed. The other night I was watching a DVD in bed and had to turn it off as I just couldn’t focus on anything while bub was wriggling around.

It is so amazing! I love that our bub constantly kicks and moves 🙂

Sounds exactly like my pregnancy! Started feeling movement at the end of 14w. Is your placenta posterior? Mine was which was why I could feel so much movement early on. My son was super active in my belly and at 7 months still is! He kicks so much it’s hard to get a diaper on sometimes. I call him my kicky baby. Good luck to you!

I’m also a December mom-to-be, and I’ve had the same experience. I felt her early on, and you can totally see her kicking when you look at my belly. My doctor was pretty pleased and said she’s a strong girl. I’m not 5’0 tall yet, but not particularly thin. 

I think this falls under “every pregnancy is as different as the woman,” and is nothing to worry about. I just enjoy the kicks– though last night I was pretty sure she a pair of nunchucks!
