    Default Baby moving

    Hi, Im on my 2nd pregnancy and Im at the stage where i feel fatter but am not showing, and my m/s has eased up. Basically I do not feel pregnant. Im just wondering when other mums started feeling their bubs moving. I've heard it's earlier the second time around. I just love the feeling and I really want it to start so I "feel" pregnant.
    Thing is with being at this stage, that the excitement has totally died down and Im kind of in limbo. I want some action!!!

    I felt a flutter at 16 weeks then a proper movement at 18 weeks 4 days.

    I felt the odd flutter from about 16 weeks, but the first full on movement-kick I felt was at about 19-20 weeks.And since then she has been highly active!

    I felt Lachlan move at 15wks (just twice but two huge kicks) it was the day before Kamerons 2nd birthday party.

    Kameron I felt move at around 17wks and the movements i was feeling were confirmed at the u/sound at 18wks.

    Love

    i am on my first pregnancy, and i only just felt the movement at 20w4d!! i was really getting worried because all the books said you will feel it between 17-19 weeks.

    but now the kicks are happening all the time. Hope the little one starts for you soon!!

    I started to feel flutters with my third about 2 weeks ago, now I feel actual movement so I guess you could say that started at 16 weeks, but this is my third baby and it's not everyday which can play on my mind a bit, but I try not to worry about it.

    I'm trying to remember with my second daughter I'm pretty sure I first started feeling movement at 16 weeks, but felt real kicks and lots of movement by 18 weeks.

    Ok, this is good. Thank you everyone. I am hoping that by this time next week I will have movement!! I just hate this inbetween phase!! Mind you once Im near the end, I'll probably wish it was like this!!!

    I'm on my first pg, and I haven't felt anything yet... Like you Meg, I'm really looking forward to feeling some 'flutters', or even some kicks!, because to date I haven't really felt pregnant either.

    It depends on where baby is laying & placenta etc is... As placenta could be cushioning the kicks.... With first baby, I honestly was petrified when everyone was asking me at 18wks if I could feel the kicks & I could not feel anything including flutters or butterflies as they called them... It was at my 25wks check up I cried tro OB about it & he explained baby was laying back & placenta in front, this baby is laying up front & placenta at back & I can see it roll over easily!!!! Felt proper kicks earlier etc... So don't panic or worry!!!!
