2nd Trimester


I am almost 14 weeks and wondering when first time moms felt baby movement?!? I'm really lookin forward to it as I think it'll ease my nerves!

Re: Movement

  • I first felt movement that was unmistakably the baby around 15/16 weeks. It felt like someone was flicking me from the inside. :) Not at all like bubbles or flutters, though I know that's how some people describe it what it feels like for them ... to me that just describes how I feel about gas, lol!

    The wait is so tough, but just you wait, it will be worth it. :) Good luck!

  • FTM carrying twins.  For me, movement became unmistakable at 20 weeks.  It felt like tiny muscle spasms.  I never felt "bubble" or "goldfish plops" or "butterflies."

    I was told by my OB that most FTMs feel movement between 16-20 weeks, but closer to the 18-20 week range.

  • I am FTM, with anterior placenta so I felt the movements later then most. I am 23 weeks today and only have been feeling her consistently (pops and flutters) for the past week and a half. So around 21.5 weeks is when it started. Haven't felt an actual kick yet.

  • I for sure knew I was feeling him at 18 weeks, but I think I was feeling him for a week or so before that. I just didn't know what I was feeling!

  • I'm a FTM and just felt my LO for the first time at 17w5d. It felt like a strong kick, but ever since then I've only felt flutters.

  • I was feeling little taps at 18 weeks. I have an anterior placenta so I wasn't feeling kick type movements until around 21-22 weeks.

    I just barely felt it at 17 weeks....and at 20 weeks I felt a LOT more.  Now I feel it pretty regularly all day.  I'm a first time mom also.

  • I felt the baby for the first time at 18 weeks but it wasn't consistent until 20 weeks or so.  You'll know it when you feel it! 
  • I'm 17w2d and I think I may have felt him but I don't know for sure. Could have been gas. I hope to know for sure within the next few days/weeks. :) I also have a softball size fibroid so that could end up being in the way of some of the kick/punches.
