    I felt the first flutter around 14 weeks but they were few and far between until around 16-17 weeks. Then it was more frequent but still not all the time bubbles/flutters in my lower abdomen.

    I felt nothing, no flutters or anything. That I know of. And then bam! At 18-19 weeks I was feeling definite movement and my husband could feel it too. It was like I went from zero to sixty!

    I started feeling small thumps around 18 weeks, and was sure it was baby movement by 20 weeks.

    I didn’t feel anything till about 22 weeks, but I had an anterior placenta so that’s likely the cause.

    newbabybee:  I felt him at 21+3. I thought maybe before that, however it was definite at 21weeks. I have an anterior placenta.

    I had a couple “Was that the baby?” feelings probably around 15 or 16 weeks.  Around weeks 16-17, I felt what I was SURE was the baby…it was a little like gas, but didn’t eventually move downward like gas.  I was at work, and my coworkers have had kids, so I was like, “Does it feel like a cross between gas and cellphone on vibrate?” and they were like, “YUP!  That’s it!”  

    They started becoming more defined movements/kicks a few weeks after that.  But she is shy! She would be moving around a lot, and I could feel her from the outside, too, but if ANYONE ELSE put their hand on my belly, she would completely stop moving.  My husband joked that I was making the whole thing up.  He has since felt her move a couple times, but it took a while!

    21 weeks for me. A lot has to do with where your placenta is located as well.
