    It really depends. Some feel it from very early on and others still aren't feeling much by 23/24 weeks.

    You'll know when you do., At first it may feel like popping wind inside or a kind of bubbling.

    well i felt bubbles and flutterings up untill about 16 weeks but since my scan nothing
    not even a small kick am quite annoyed lol
    think most people start to feel them about 16-18 weeks though
    it does differ highly between people

    Well it's my first - and I didn't feel anything til about 20weeks.

    At first I wasn't even convinced it was baby moving as movements were soooo delicate - felt kinda like when you're in water and something brushes close by & the water sort of flows in a wave across your skin (but on the inside)! :?

    But after another 2 weeks it was obviousl baby movements & now I can feel him/her doing sonersaults on a daily basis :dance:

    I felt popping when i was about 15 weeks and that carried on until about 17 weeks and at that point the popping became light kicks, OH started to feel him at around 19/20 weeks.

    I think its pretty unusual for first timers to feel much before 19 or 20 weeks. I waswell past 20 weeks with my first before I felt anything.

    This time (my 3rd) I started to feel something about 16 1/2 weeks but it's only because I know what to expect, otherwise I'd probably think nothing of it. Also if you have an anterior placenta or have a lot of padding, you feel it later on.
