Hello ladies!’ I’m nearing 18 weeks and I don’t think I have felt my little bean yet. Sometimes I think ‘hmmm was that something??’ but I think it’s just gas! Sorry for the tmi.
So I am just wondering, when did you first feel your little one move? Thanks! 🌸

I felt it around 17-18 weeks but I didn’t know it was definitely the baby until my 20 week scan (at 19 weeks). I’m 22 weeks now and can feel it pretty strongly. She seems to have several different patterns of movement (rolling which feels like scraping, light patters that feel a little like bubbles but got stronger and strong kicks which are defined). I imagine if you feel the bubbles or twitches now it probably is the baby but you might not be 100% sure until they get stronger.

I first felt it verrry occasionally around 16 weeks. It was so faint though and only when I was lying down totally still – felt a little bit like gas but the gas never appeared. I wouldn’t be surprised if that’s what you’re feeling! It’s just a really mild fluttering.
Now I’m 25 weeks and he’s kicking like crazy! It is such a cool feeling 😍😍😍 Except I swear, he manages to kick me right in the butthole, which is pretty disconcerting 😂

With my first, I remember being very alarmed that I had not felt movement. It took until 21 weeks for me to know with certainty it was the baby moving. I probably felt something earlier, but I couldn’t be sure until 21 weeks.

Not definitively until around 24 weeks. I had a nice comfy anterior placenta cushion in the way 😝
After that, nonstop. I had a crazy kicky LO who was sunny-side up and all up in my ribs.

I felt the first ‘flutters’ at about 18 weeks! I’m 20 weeks now and feel them all the time. Last night was exciting – I put my hand on my belly and I could feel the movement from the outside. I’m excited for my husband to feel it!

I don’t really remember, but I know it wasn’t super early. I think it wasn’t until 20 weeks or later.

On my first, I felt a tiny movement before my big scan at 20 weeks…The only reason I knew that it was baby kick was because they confirmed it in the scan. After that it was very intermittent until 25 weeks and even after but it burns out I had an anterior placenta.
On my second I was getting flutters at 14 weeks…

I’m at 17 weeks and felt a little movement after a strong/violent sneeze attack (a few days ago). I haven’t felt anything else since then.

I’m 19 weeks and I feel what I consider to be flutter like movements and only sporadically and only if I am paying attention. At my last ultrasound, the tech was pushing him around and trying to get a good angle of him and I could see him kicking and squirming in there but couldn’t feel anything, even knowing where he was positioned and that he was definitely kicking!

I think I felt something at 17, then nothing for a while after that. Nothing really definite until around 20-21 weeks. And then consistantly everyday at around 25-26 weeks.

With my first, not until almost the third trimester…maybe like 24-25 weeks. I had an anterior placenta as well. With my second, probably around 16 weeks.

20 weeks – it felt like little flutters… I was drinking a Sprite at the time.

I started feeling stuff really early, like around 13 weeks, but it didn’t get distinct until more like 18/19 weeks. Also it wasn’t very consistent until recently…sometimes a few days would go by early on without feeling anything at all. I’m 20 weeks now and the movements are getting much more distinct and regular. I am tiny though and I’ve heard small people tend to feel movement earlier.
