Let us guide you along week-by-week!)
I didn't experience this with DD#1 - if you have, when did you really start to feel your LO move? I have felt some bubbles and kicks, so I know she's in there, but I'm curious at what point this cushion isn't a cushion for her strength anymore!
I have been feeling occasional pokes since about 18 weeks. I haven't ever really felt the flutters or popcorn feeling others describe. I think it is perhaps too muffled behind the AP.
Others I have spoken to with AP say anywhere from 22-25 weeks to feel kicks regularly, so I'm hoping for some action in the next few weeks.
It's amazing when we've had our ultrasounds to see how much the baby is moving inside and still I feel nothing!!
I'm 25 weeks and have not experienced the "gas, butterflies, or popcorn" sensations that everyone talks about. From everything I have read, I knew I would feel her at the sides, top, or bottom of my uterus. When I asked my doctor, he confirmed my readings & told me not to worry that I hadn't felt her moving since the US show her extremely active & her heart beat is and has remained very strong. He also said that the farther along I get and the bigger she gets, the more I will be able to feel her & it would definitely be a kick not questionable sensations.
Sunday evening while lying in bed on my side, I felt a definite kick on the side of my uterus. The single kick turned into several over a very short period of time. Yesterday evening was the same thing. This time she would kick strong every now & then but they were all strong enough for my husband to feel them as well.
Hope this helps. =)
