    Hello! My first day in 2nd tri and I was wondering at what point should I start to feel baby move around? Someone also said I might mistake it for gas at first??

    Thanks for the info!!

    I felt him move for the very first time at 16w3d, then every other day or so, It was a for sure movement by 18 weeks, it is my first baby, I know veteran moms feel it sooner.

    I started feeling flutters from about 16 weeks, was not sure it was baby until in my 17th week and Hubby felt the baby move at 18 weeks 3 days :)

    but be aware it can be different for all of as.

    I felt it at 18+5, it felt like twitching at first (I never experienced the popping of bubbles that people talk about). About a week later it developed into light kicks and now they're much stronger xx

    I felt very light flutters from 15 weeks and definate movement at 19 weeks. It does feel very like gas, someone said to me if you feel a rumble that isn't followed by a trump then it's your baby! I found that to be very true!

    Oh, it also sometimes feels like a muscle twitching inside my tummy! But as a PP said it can feel different for everyone.

    thanks everyone! I knew it probably wasn't going to happen this early because I definitely feel something going on down there that's like gas... and it most definitely is LOL!!! TMI but I just told hubby that I let about 14 go in less than a minute. Oh the joys of pregnancy :haha:

    Hey Sideways!

    I started feeling flutters that felt like gas at about 19 weeks. I knew for sure that it was the baby at about 21 weeks. Now I'm feeling definite movements like kicks and punches. I have an anterior placenta and was told that this could delay me feeling movements cuz it acts like padding.

    Me too! I can only ever feel movement down the left side of my bump and at my 20 week scan the doc said that it's likely due to the anterior placenta.
