I was 18 weeks when I first felt kicks and I’m about 5ft9 with a baby that sat low. Not sure if any of those factors contributed!

enjoy them when you feel them, it’s the most magical feeling!

I’m not that tall, 5’7″, but I have an anterior placenta so they told me it might take longer to feel anything. I was feeling tiny flutters from about 17/18weeks until 21 – then it really ramped up! Now I’m 37 weeks and little man can do some real damage!

I’m not talk but I feel like I felt movement late – I didn’t truly feel kicks until about 22 weeks. I’m now 28 and she won’t stop moving 🙂

I’m not tall but started feeling movement (like popcorn popping) at 18 weeks.

Do you know the position of your placenta? That can affect when you feel movement too. I am 5’7″, so not super tall. I felt flutters at 17 weeks but didn’t feel more distinct movements until 20-21 weeks. I don’t think having the baby sit low will affect you being able to feel movement, just that any movements you feel will obviously be felt lower. My baby was breech, so my movements were felt low the entire pregnancy. I never had the rib kicks (though having a head in your rib cage is not pleasant either). Basically, don’t worry that you’re not feeling anything yet. It’s really hard to determine what is baby movements and what is gas ths early on. Good luck!

I’m not very tall, 5’8, but I started feeling flutters at 15 weeks and definitely knew what was going on by 17 weeks.

At 5’5 and a half, Im nowhere close to tall by any stretch of the imagination. With the first child, I was around 16 weeks when I felt the first flutters. Actual kicks and movements were shortly after the 20th week. My second daughter was a bigger child so I dont know if that had anything to do with it but everything happened about 2 weeks earlier with her as far as feeling flutters/movement.

5’7″ was confident i was feeling the little guy around 20 weeks.  i think the early movements feel like muscle twitches.

I’m 6’1. I had anterior placenta and I carried very low (my fundal height measure way behind for a long time too.) 

I felt him a couple of times around 14 weeks when I sat in an odd twisted position at work.  But I wasn’t sure it was the baby (I asked my coworkers! Lol. Like they would know if what I felt was the baby.) 

By 18 weeks I would feel him at night when I settled in bed.  But at 20 weeks he started moving all day, everyday.

I also 5’10 and I felt movement/flutters at 15 weeks.  At 18 weeks I started feeling full blown kicks and at 20 weeks my Dh can feel them and I can actually see them. They are so low.  My placenta is posterior.  Do you know if you have anterior placenta?

6′, size 18, 19 weeks when I was sure it was movement and not gas or gurgles. Initially, only at night in bed.

I’m 5’7, and I felt my first movement literally the day before I was going in to find out boy or girl. So about 19-20 weeks. My daughter is 9 now, and man I sure miss being pregnant. I absolutely loved it!

I’m 5’7 and carried super high, my fundal height was always 2 weeks ahead of schedule so I was having rib jabs at 17 weeks.
