When Do You Feel It Move

Lola - October 20

I was wondering when you usually start to feel the baby moving?

Not sure about the average, but after 12 weeks i felt little flutters, like tiny little mice running around my stomach, like the lower part. But it didnt happen often or like everyday, by 20 weeks you could really feel some movements, heavier and like a couple of weeks after I felt the baby move everyday almost and then towards the end u feel the baby move everyday. Hope this helped.

Ditto to what Soleil stated. Also, when it is your first baby it is hard to differentiate between gas bubbles and baby flutters. Believe me-you will know eventually and towards the end you may even see a faint shape of a heel of the foot or hand. Odd, I know, but extremely amazing! I am pregnant with Baby #3 and I was able to feel the baby moving around 10 weeks. Maybe it was b/c I knew what to expect, but I also think it has something to do with the stomach muscles having been weakened from previous pregnancies. Hope this helps and CONGRATS!

I am 15 weeks and have felt nothing. I knew when it was gas too. I am worried that maybe the baby is not moving in there.

to worried - PLEASE dont get worried, the above dates are EXTREMELY early and not normal... most women will not feel the baby until - on average - 16 weeks - this is the hard part of waiting... but it will get there. I felt my fourth baby at 17 weeks, Im now 35.4 weeks. You will get there - just a little time is all that is needed. good luck to all...
