    How far along were you girls when you started feeling movement? I'm so impatient haha! Does it make a difference if you're a ftm and if you're slim or not? x

    I can't wait either! I keep thinking I might have felt the odd flutter, but not sure! I want proper kicks!

    I have heard some ladies who are on the larger side that they didn't feel baby kick until they were further on but I'm not sure.

    I'm soooo impatient! Want to feel it now, and want my husband to be able to feel it too!

    I,ve felt movement from about 14 weeks and just started getting proper kicks the past day or two, but this is my third baby. My first I felt at about 16 weeks. I,ve heard that slimmer ladies feel movement earlier, but I,ve also heard it doesn't make a difference coz the kicks are on the inside so no help there !!

    I have an anterior placenta too but am slim so hoping it wont be TOO long before I start feeling something. Baby was so chilled out at scan though that I hope he/she doesnt just sleep...I want them dancing in there! I'll be happy even to feel flutters so I know things are still progressing but it will be amazing when OH can feel it too :)

    I didnt feel anything until after 20 weeks and even now it isn't constant. Just lots of little bumps and nudges, kind of like tummy rumbles xx

    i'm over weight but have felt flutters for a few days, today i was sat with my knees up and felt some movement, it only lasted a few seconds but was quite strong. I wonder if I squished baby and it was protesting :oooo:

    Oo, I can't wait either!!! It seems that people I've been talking to haven't really felt anything properly until after 20 weeks. I don't want to wait that long lol! I have also heard that if your a ftm, it takes longer to feel things as you're not used to the "tell-tale signs". Hopefully it won't be too long for you!

    I can't wait either, I think that'll be the next milestone to start feeling flutters, then followed by the 20 week scan :) xxx

    I think I can feel things, but not 100% sure. Yesterday it felt like something was flipping over and my belly went all hard for a few seconds. Probably bowel movements knowing my luck!!!

    I've been feeling little flutters and gentle pokes for a couple of weeks now. Last night it felt at first like I was going over a hump back bridge, just a general feeling of movement. Then I felt definite pokes and a kind of rubbing feeling. It's really reassuring, i just can't wait to get the big kicks now!
