Just curious when did you all feel your baby move for the first time?

I felt my first at 16w and this one at 12w. It didn't feel like real kicks either time until close to 20w

I started feeling mine (our first) around 14-16 weeks I think, but it didn't register to me thats what was going on (to me it felt like a muscle twitch). But I finally "felt" baby around 18 weeks or so and hubs could feel little twinges around 20 weeks.

This is my first and I didn't really feel her until 20-21 weeks. I never really felt the butterfly feeling, I just started getting kicks one day!

I started to feel the "butterfly" feeling around 12 weeks, but it was very few times I would feel it and I have to be really still. I started feeling more and more movement around weeks 16-18 and now I feel him every day.

I'm heavy, and I felt my first around 18-20 weeks. This time around, I didn't really feel her until around 20 weeks either, but I have an anterior placenta.

as my ticker says I'm 14 weeks, and this week I feel like I've felt some things that could have been the baby, but nothing that I 'KNOW' for sure. and I know that with your first it can take longer to feel, and this woman was telling me something was not right that I hadnt felt it move and I am 4 months...and I'm like, well it's my body, I know when I feel something like gas or muscle spasms, and I know I havent felt anything that says to me "alert it's not gas" so it pissed me off cause this is my pregnancy not anyone elses and I"m not gonna lie and say I felt this or that just to make someone else feel happier...for whatever reason. The people I deal with!

I started feeling kicks at 18 weeks but really started to feel her at 20 but not all the time. just this week I started seeing her movements and kicks from the outside. I love it when she moves best feeling in the world!

With my 1st it wasn't until after 20 weeks, but I'm heavy and had an anterior placenta. Can't remember with #2 but with this one I started feeling the occasional something at about 16 weeks. There is no way I would have been able to identify it if I hadn't been pregnant before.
