    Im now 18 weeks and I have yet to experience my baby kicking but unsure if I have been feeling movements.

    I have been experiencing slight pains for around 1 second on a couple of occasions on the weekend of the 10th and then nothing during that week and I had a couple more on Saturday and this morning and unsure if this is me feeling movements. As I have never been pregnant before I don't know what to expect but they are roughly in the same location each time??

    This is very confusing and have become impatient waiting on my baby to kick :(

    I was also 18 weeks until flat any flutters, I thought it felt like someone was flicking me from inside or bubbles, didn't feel kicks until I was 20 weeks so don't be disheartened Hun. Everyone is different xx

    My first kick was at 20 weeks, but they weren't regular until 23 weeks.

    All I can say is that when you have that first kick you will know :) xx

    I was the same Hun! A lot of girls felt flutters quite early and I didn't, so automatically thought something was up but like any said you'll know! X

    Just depends on where your placenta is, it's probably cushioning the movements. Found out mine was at the back at the midwife at my 20 week scan said its why I've felt my little girl move from quite early. Don't worry it'll be making a menace of itself soon! Ha x

    Dont worry im always 24 weeks for first movement, not very good at recognising flutters , and have always had anterior placenta in the way,

    Wont be long and then it will be all the time, best bit!!

    We're not feeling any yet,
    Although it may be a bit early for us, she says she feels little twinges, but she thinks it might be muscle, she doesn't know what she is feeling out for, just a waiting game

    I was feeling movement a few weeks ago but it's proper kicks now. I think it really just depends on the individual woman. My placenta also at the back, and is apparently why you feel so early if you do x

    With my first baby I literally felt about 5 kicks during the whole pregnancy. I was in and out of hospital a fair ammount to monitor baby but he was fine, it was just the position of the placentar. This time around I have had the occasional flutter overthe last 2 weeks but just today I bent over and felt it much stronger. I think they are very easy to miss at first because they are very gentle, almost like a bubble popping. Certainly shouldn;t be a painful twinge at this stage, that is more likely to be a bit of stretching going on.
