I was almost exactly 5 months and in the dental chair having a root canal!

Around 19 weeks. Now I’m about 22.5 weeks and I’m looking forward to when Darling Husband can feel them too!

@Blondiebee: I felt the first kicks at approx. 20 weeks. I had felt flutters earlier but was never certain that it was the baby. I was sitting down at work, waiting for Dear Fiance to pick me up and I felt a pop in my lower belly and just knew it was the baby. Now she likes to scoot her bottom along my right hand side ribs and kick me hard on the left side. I love it, even when it hurts!

19 weeks. Now I’m 27 and she doesn’t stop! I’m pretty sure yesterday I felt a foot or a hand.

I started feeling her at 13 weeks.  She always had really distinctive movements throughout the pregnancy… so I wasn’t sure that it was her I was feeling at first, but by 15 weeks, I knew what I had been feeling was the babe.

Don’t get impatient if you don’t feel the baby until after 20 weeks.  It really depends how the placenta is placed and how much room the baby has.

I first felt the movements in week 20, they felt like little muscle spasms it was so exciting! but now at week 30, the movements are much bigger and watching my whole stomach move is amazing!

I didn’t feel anything (or didn’t know I was feeling anything) until about 22 weeks.  But now I feel it all the time.  Don’t feel worried if it takes a little longer — everyone is different!

At the tail end of week 20 I felt baby move and once I did, there was no mistake that it was baby.

my placenta was ‘anterior’ (meaning the placenta was on the front wall of the uterus), so i didn’t feel anything until after 20 weeks.  and it wasn’t until about 24 weeks that i felt a good definitive kick

I’m 18 weeks now and I don’t feel anything consitently but I started feeling flutters occassionally at 16 weeks.  We can hear the heartbeat with a regular stethoscope now, and sometimes it sounds like it’s moving around a bit but I guess that could be my stomach making noises too, though it sounds different than stomach noises.
