    I didn’t until I was 20ish weeks. I was very impatient also. Once it happened though it pretty much never stopped haha. Mine was always moving and turning and kicking.

    I felt some taps and twitches toward the end of week 14. By week 17, I could feel real kicks, and by week 18, you could see my belly move from the outside. My Darling Husband felt baby around 18 or 19 weeks, if I’m remembering correctly. Now at 22 weeks, her kicks are so strong they hurt sometimes. She is super active!

    I started feeling my baby move at the end of 16wks.  It was just a tapping feeling.  I still feel that and flutters as well.  I’m 18wks, 4days right now.

    @totheislnds:  My due date is January 7th as well. I don’t think I’ve felt anything for sure yet. Some weird feeling but I’m not sure if it’s the baby or just my innards stretching and moving around.

    how funny! last night i was telling Darling Husband that i thought i might be feeling flutters because something was going on when i was laying in bed and not moving. i’m 16w, so we’ll see if those flutters turn into something more!

    @totheislnds:  That’s what we have been saying the whole time…especially since I was a swimmer through college!

    I was bummed when I couldn’t feel the baby as soon as others had so I just wanted to chime in that I felt it at 21 weeks exactly!

    I felt one baby “kick” at 17 weeks, and it’s just like what other people said- it was a pop, really.  I didn’t start feeling steady movement from both of them until about 21/22 weeks.  At 23 weeks, I can feel them flipping over (and punching me in the bellybutton:)).

    I started feeling little taps at 20 weeks, unmistakably baby.  It just started suddenly one day and happened frequently after that.  I hadn’t felt anything like it before, but for a few weeks before I had been feeling sensations like blowing up a balloon in my belly– I found out later these were Braxton-Hicks contractions.  Now at 22 weeks, my husband just started being able to feel the stronger kicks from the outside.

    i’ll be 16 weeks tomorrow and am SO ready to feel the baby  move. Our little one has been measuring ahead at each appointment, so I’m hoping I’ll feel him/her move soon!
