    I didn't feel any movement with my firsy until I was 21 weeks - it can often depend on where your placenta sits - I had (and have this time) an anterior placenta so the baby had to kick through that for me to feel it.

    I felt this baby at 16 weeks this time - but they do say 2nd time around you tend to feel it earlier as you recognise the feeling more (apparently!)

    Im almost 17 weeks, I keep thinking i can feel the baby but i think its usually just my stomach rumbling! The last week, my bump has really popped out and actually looks like a baby bump now, had to get some maternity clothes earlier! x

    I started feeling movements a week or so ago, but I usually have to be sitting a certain way and paying attention to feel it. Your bump will show up soon enough, in fact you might have one but just don't feel that big.

    Yeah, at first I thought it was gas, but then after a week or so I felt a good solid poke.

    You may start to feel butterfly fluttering at first which is your baby move but as you get further along you'll be able to see and feel your baby move more. Don't worry if you're not showing, I wasn't either until I hit 6months!! It's very depressing when you don't show but the best feeling ever when you do eventually.
    You'll sail through the next few weeks and soon enough you'll not be able to move properly, so make the most of it chick! =] xx

    Most welcome =]
    You'll wake up one day and just have this huge bump there!!! Other people will probably notice it before you anyway though hun, give it time it will happen just takes a while with your first as your skin has to stretch.

    I'm 19+2 with my first and I still haven't felt anything. Every now and then I think I can feel something, but truthfully, I'm probably imagining things because I want to feel something :blush:
