    This isn't my first baby so I started feeling flutters with baby bump ages ago but I've not had any "proper" kicks yet and I don't feel him moving very often. Is this normal? When did you first feel a kick?

    Ooooo but a nice thing I have noticed is that me and hubby can feel which side of my tummy baby bump is lying on just by feeling from the outside :)

    Hey Hon,

    No proper kicks here yet either. They have sort of progressed from butterfly flutters to little taps. Hope to feel a kick ina week or two.

    Thanks for the replies girls, you've put my mind at rest a little :)

    I know I'll be complaining towards the end when he starts kicking me in the ribs (very painful!) but now I just want to feel something more definate so I know he's ok. I do listen to his hb on the doppler every couple of days so I know he's ok really I would just find it more reassuring to feel something more :)

    Im certain I felt my first proper kicks last night as I was having a lay down on the sofa before I made tea.

    Before that I have felt flutters and butterflies and slowly progressing to stronger movements.

    I felt a flutter when i was 18 weeks, since then i am not sure if i have felt anything else. I feel like a sharp twinge every now and then and wonder if that could be it but i dont no.

    This is my first pregnancy and im not even showing that much either. Im almost half way there and no one can tell i am pregnant....

    Mine was 18 weeks and one day - I only know that cos it was the morning after our wedding and lying in bed I suddenly felt a proper kick. Now the little thing won't stay still! I felt flutters before that though, but not kicks, just like little bubbles.

    i felt movement from about 18 weeks but didnt feel a proper kick as such until about 24/.25 wks. OH couldn't feel anything until about 31wks cos the lil madam would stop moving as soon as he put his hand on my belly...
