    Hi there,

    Personally, I was only about 14 weeks pregnant when I felt the first flutters (almost like a butterfly flitting around in my tummy). I think this is quite early but it's probably cos I have two little wrigglers in there. I can't quite remember exactly, but I think I was about 22 weeks when I first started feeling definate movements and about 26 weeks when the kicks became so pronounced that my partner was able to feel them aswell. Nowadays my tummy looks like there's a tidal wave going on inside lol. Everyone is different though so don't take this as gospel. It is only my personal experience :hugs: xx

    I think it was about 17 weeks, but I wasnt totally sure until 19/20 weeks. Hubby first felt her kick at 23 weeks, but around 28 weeks she just went loopy and I could see my belly rippling with her movements.

    I'm a size 20 and felt first flutters at 14 weeks, definite kicking at around 22 weeks and now at 30 weeks have just started to pop out of normal clothes and have had to invest in some maternity trousers/jeans/crops from Next ! Can now feel some real movement but only if I'm lying on my side, if I'm just sitting and feeling around I can't make out any limbs or head.

    I'm a size 20/22 and I felt my first flutter/kick at about 14 weeks and then obvious kicks at 18 but not from the outside. These happened more like 20 I think.

    I'm a rather cuddly size 30 I also felt flutters at about 14 weeks definite movements about 17 weeks daddy felt a kick at 18 weeks but only because both he and bean were on the right bit at the right time, by about 24 weeks you could see tummy moving around, but not clear enough to make out what bit is poking out but well enough for anyone I wanted touching my belly to be able to feel it and for the rest of the world to watch.
