    Default Kicks at 21 weeks???!!

    hi all!!

    Is it possible for the baby to kick/punch or poke at 21 weeks?? I felt it last night when lying in bed and just now....its quite firm against my hand but not painful...

    its feels so weird!!!!! I havn't felt any movements yet and this feels so great!!

    Yay!!!!!! So excited!

    Let me know what you think...
    Thanks - Sarah.

    Absolutely! Many people feels kicks or movements this early, especially if you are slender. Enjoy it while it's still a novelty - by the time you reach 32 weeks you'll be wishing they would stop kicking you in the ribs as it can really hurt!!

    dee- i completly agree- i have briused ribs from bubs kicking them and like pushing off them. the full on rolls and summersaults make you feel weird (great to feel though sometimes rather painful)


    Also bubs usually move alot more at night- you should feel alot more kicks and movements then and also when relaxing.

    Definately! I started feeling movement at 20 weeks and by 24 weeks was well and truly being kicked and punched on a regular basis! Enjoy the kicks and punches!

    Yeah its such a great feeling isnt it, although my little man is very very active now and seems to always be on the move, he kicks his sister and brother when ever he gets the chance.
    I must say though im not looking forward to him being so active in the last few weeks. My Ds kicked me so hard i wet myself.

    Enjoy

    I felt flutters around 14 weeks and they progressed to kicks around 18 weeks. He definitely moves around a lot! My boyfriend still can't feel him yet, but I'm sure it won't be long. My little man likes to turn sideways and poke his head up by my belly button. Kinda weird how hard it makes my belly!

    Yep, definately normal. I got flutters from about 11/12 weeks, and my partner has started to feel them in the last week

    oh my goodness, I hadn't realised that people felt "flutters" so early! I'm now paying attention to every sensation I have! LOL

    Congrats on feeling the kicks.
    It's awesome!

    With DS I didn't feel any kicks until like 24+wks, cause of the placenta.
    But with this pg, I felt flutters at like 15/16wks, and my DP felt kicks on the outside like 19/20wks.
    It felt so weird cause I didn't feel anything this early last time.
