    I was just wondering when you first felt him/her? It's my first child.
    Also when did you start showing? I'm overweight so think a baby bump will not be noticable for a while though I can feel a slight pouch myself, nobody else would be able to see it lol.

    On a random note, I keep getting a feeling like fluttering/trapped nerve kinda thing in my ribs, is this normal?

    hi it was quite a while before i felt movement as im quite big to not all fat either just big ,big, if you know what i mean i also have thick muscle wall so that didnt help either but yes you could well start feeling movement now its nice isnt it, reassuring you will soon get a sense of babies routine to which is nice, my boy seems to break in to Y M C A at about 11pm when i would really like to go to sleep! just remember the only opinion that matters is YOUR MIDWIFES not the woman in the shop who says arent you small or a friend who says your big or ANYONE ELSE!:thumbup:

    Are you sure the fluttering is not your :baby:?

    I started feeling the baby move at around 19 weeks, but very sporadically, now I feel her everyday about 3 times a day. I didn't expect to like it so much... now I'm reminded she's there all the time :cloud9:

    Oh and I started showing definitely at 20 weeks. A LOT of people have asked if I'm pregnant in the last week! (they wouldn't risk it if it wasn't obvious!)

    I am 16 weeks and I first noticed very tiny movement at 13ish. But lately if Im sitting down and I bring my legs to my chest or sit down and lean over my legs I can feel serious movement! This is my second baby :)

    I'm just 14 weeks and have felt baby moving, but this is my third and they say you can feel the baby move earlier with second and third pregnancies

    I have just begun to feel little flutters. They started last night when I was laying down. They are very slight, so unless I'm paying really close attention I would miss it. I can't wait to feel an actual kick!

    I started feeling flutters and tiny little kicks on Monday when I turned 17 weeks, it's very slight and I can only notice it if I'm sat down or lying down.

    This is my first baby :)

    I FELT HER MOVE :D :D :D

    After posting this, I got more fluttering (not like near my ribs, as I know that wasn't the baby) but just above my pubic line. I only noticed 'cause I was consciously thinking about it, I imagine I'll have felt it before but not noticed because it would be easy to mistake as something else, as I said, this time I was thinking about it.

    So then I went and lay on the bed, and starting poking my stomach... about 5 seconds after, I got this quite strong feeling like someone had poked me back from the inside... this happened about 4 times (regardless of which part of my stomach I poked, I always felt it in the same place at the bottom) then a couple more times slightly further to the right. Then I kept poking but it didn't happen again, guess she got sick of it :p

    Then this evening I was laying on the sofa on my side, not poking myself this time, just watching tv, and I got the same feeling! It's very bizarre, but I just knew it was my little girl!

    I felt my first kick at around 20 weeks , I felt flutters at 18 weeks.
    I have an anterior placenta though so think thats why i felt flutters so late.
    I feel kicks alll the time now though ive a very active little girly!!

    I think I am only now feeling actual little flutters and it started maybe 2, 3 days ago. Before I used to think it might be gas but now I just know it is not. But I have an anterior placenta for one of the twins so that probably makes it harder to detect too. I cannot wait to feel actual kicks though :D
