    I think I was around 22 weeks when I said to my OB that I wasn't feeling kicks regularly.. and he said that's not a problem at this stage. So don't worry too much at 18 weeks that you're not feeling it regularly. I think there's still a lot of room in there for them to bounce around in, so you won't feel every leg stretch or punch

    I believe i felt my first movements at 17 weeks, i was unsure if it was kicks that i was feeling, but i liked to think so! my partner couldnt feel anything from the outside of my belly for a while after, ive read thats because there is still plenty of room for her to move around freely. I wanted to be able to feel movements constantly, but that just never happended.

    Now at 25 weeks however, i can feel the movements so stringly, so can anyone else who has their hand on my belly!
    I sometimes rest the TV remote on my belly when she is moving around, its quite cute to watch it go up and down as she moves!

    Melb - where my coolness isn't seen as wierdness


    I probably did feel movement everyday from about 16 weeks, but when you're busy and preoccupied, they pass by without you noticing. I have found that if I sat very still and concentrated on trying to feel movements, I would usually feel something, even if it was only a swish, in the space of a couple of hours (usually just before bed). It was only once I was 24 weeks or so that the kicks were strong enough for me to feel and remember even when I wasn't thinking about it.

    But it's so normal to worry about it. How can we not? I still do now and I'm almost 30 weeks on. If I wake up during the night, I can't go back to sleep unless bub gives me a boot and I know everything's alright. Of course, the little'un is kicking the h*ll out of me now, so....
