    Hi Ladies,

    Im 16 weeks today and this is my first, just wondering when i should feel the baby move and what its suppose to feel like? Would i just no when it happens or is it a little less obvious?

    As Nbrintz says it really is different for everyone, but mine started around 18 weeks. It starts as little flutters in your belly, and then mine moved on to 'tapping' which I felt on my cervix. For me, they didn't really become distinguishable kicks until about 22 weeks.

    My mum felt me move at 14/15 weeks little flutters :)
    She felt it very early but I guess it depends on how uterus is positioned , where baby is, how in tune you are with your body etc etc..:) but dont worry alot of people dont feel but til 20 odd weeks! :)hope you feel bub very soon!! :)

    Xx

    I felt flutters at 15 weeks and now at 17 weeks the movements are still light and not very obvious.

    I find I notice them when sitting quietly or lying in bed, they feel like something in my belly is twitching. Not very obvious at all!

    I felt weird popping bubble sensations from around 16 weeks, at 18 weeks they turned into definite pokes and at 20 weeks I still get pokes but also starting to get definite strong kicks :) I think the first movements you will feel could be mistaken for wind in your tummy when it is in fact baby, happened to me at first then i realised it was baby when it happened regularly lol
