    About 25 weeks I think. I have an anterior placenta so that explains why it’s later than many.

     can i ask why just baby #1? Are subsequent babies supposed to start moving earlier/later?

    Just felt it for the first time 2 days ago, like a couple taps, and then bubbles popping. That was 16w4d. I’m 90% sure it was movement because it didn’t really feel like gas or any other stomach gurgling. I was a little surprised since at my last appointment my doctor had to press down on my stomach to get the heartbeat on the dopper, so I thought I might not be feeling anything for a while, but I guess they can move around a lot in there…looking forward to feeling more obvious movement though.

    I’m 29 weeks now and I was feeling little “fish bubbles” or flutters around 16 weeks, but I wasn’t 100% sure that what I was feeling was actually movement until they became more regular and hard to ignore around 17 weeks (which I’m told is pretty early for a FTM). I/DH could see them from the outside of my stomach around 18/19 weeks.

    amanda1988 :  Not necessarily, but most 2nd time mamas feel it earlier because they know what it feels like, vs. the “was that the baby or just gas” guessing game the 1st time around, lol!

    I felt baby girl around 21 or 22 weeks- I had an anterior placenta that muffled early movement.

    amanda1988 :  I think the idea is that most people don’t recognize what they’re feeling as movement the first time. By the second time, the feeling is more apparent earlier because you know what to look for.

    ETA: Oops! Someone already beat me to it 🙂

    Audrey2_sings :  Do they tell you during ultrasounds that you have an anterior placenta? Just curious because im 21w4d and all I feel are flutters once in awhile

    I never really felt the flutters everyone talks about but suddenly felt a distinct SOMETHING around 21-22 weeks.  I was going nuts waiting for movement until then.

    strawberrybee9 :  I felt certain it was baby right around 19 or 20 weeks. My baby is definitely lazier than some though, I’m 36 weeks now and I never got a lot of huge movements that I could feel even though baby is healthy and growing well.

    I wasn’t sure until right about 20 weeks, also an anterior placenta here. For whoever asked if that’s something they tell you – I had to specifically ask.

    I’m 25 weeks now and he is soooo wiggly. Husband was able to feel movement at about 23/24 weeks. We can also SEE movement now. Crazy and awesome!

    Mine felt like a muscle spasm and far lower than I anticipated, so I didn’t feel confident in saying it was movement for a few weeks.  I’m definitely the latest on this poll.  On the other hand, I’m now 24 weeks and there is zero doubt because I’ve seen the little bugger… I didn’t think that would happen already, though I didn’t look it up, either.

    I said 20 weeks, but that was a full-blown kick. I started feeling kind of weird feelings around 18 weeks. I have an anterior placenta.
