    They say you do but I didn't start to feel any real movement until about 17/18 weeks with my second. I think it differs for everyone. It will happen soon hun don't worry x

    I did feel this LO sooner than my first but I think that's because I have a posterior placenta this time and last time it was anterior x

    Hi - this is my 3rd baby. My first 2 I felt movement at about 15/16 weeks (maybe earlier with my second). This baby was just after my 20 week scan (20+5) as the placenta is at the front. Although I now feel regular movement, some days she is quiet - depending on her position. Sometimes I can put my hand on my tummy & feel her on the outside, but not on the inside - if that makes sense? Very strange!! When I eventually started feeling movement, it was definite kicks tho. I always think of her as a little tinker, hiding underneath the placenta!! xx

    This is my second and I think I felt movement earlier with my son than this little girl! She's really quiet and only feel slight flutterings mostly at night or first thing in the morning. No definite kicks yet! Xx

    Yes that's the general rule!! I didn't feel my second till after my 20 week scan. I was 18 weeks I think with my first, so it was agonising waiting that long to feel baby when I expected to feel around 16 weeks!!

    I felt my first much earlier than I've felt my second. I don't think it helped that the midwife told me I'd probably feel something earlier this time around 12-14 weeks. When I didn't, I really started worrying! It turns out my placenta is anterior this time so that's probably part of it. Also I guess all babies are different.
