When will I feel my baby kick? Mistie Jones Due April 29 (girl); 1 child; Kansas 54 posts

This is my first pregnancy. I am 20 weeks and 3 days pregnant. I have only felt little flutters. I believe I have been feeling them since around 15-16 weeks but not sure. I know for sure now I am. I haven't felt any kicking yet though. Is this normal? And how soon should I feel the kicking?

everyone is different.



i felt flutters at 15w3d with LO, full on rolling/kicking by 20 weeks.



depends on the position of baby, how in tune with your body you are and the placement of the placenta.

You should start feeling actual kicks pretty soon. I felt my first one (one that I could feel on the outside) with my last pregnancy at around 21 weeks. You won't feel "regular" kicks until about 25 weeks or so, though. You may go days without feeling anything in the next couple weeks and you will wonder if everything is okay. Don't worry...it's just cuz the baby is still small that you don't always feel it. By 25 or 26 weeks you should be able to feel them really well and on a regular basis.

everybody always talks about kicking... but do you feel your babies move? like shift positions?
sometimes, I'll look at my belly and it's all lopsided, cause somebody is clearly on the move. i wouldn't say it hurts, but i'm totally aware of the shifting pressure.



i wonder what they're doing? turning over? ballet practice?
i'm 22 weeks.

Quoting M&Z~July 26th, 2012:" This is my first pregnancy. I am 20 weeks and 3 days pregnant. I have only felt little flutters. I believe ... [snip!] ... sure. I know for sure now I am. I haven't felt any kicking yet though. Is this normal? And how soon should I feel the kicking?"

the baby is still to tiny to kick you hard enough for you to feel it im 24 weeks and i am finely feeling my son kick but i know that when your 30 weeks youll feel it even more as your baby grow it will lose room in ur belly to stretch out and there fore you will be able to see and feel every movement my daughter and my oldest son i remember would try and roll and u could see a big bump on my belly as they did so its really normal at this week to just feel a little movement but dont worry in 4 weeks youll really feel the baby moving

15 weeks is extremely normal. They say that's about right for first time moms. If you had more pregnancies sometimes you are a little more keen to it and may feel it a little earlier (but not by much). Definitely doing good! :)

nope, ribs don't hurt. it's like a moving ball of pressure across my belly.



also looks prety funny. i sometimes catch like a ball moving slowly under my skin. kinda like that movie Alien!
