Anyone feel anything?

Hey everyone!

I'm a first time mom and I can't wait to feel my baby move. I'm 18 weeks (as of today). When should I start feeling something? Has anyone out there, who's around the same time frame as me, felt anything yet?

I'm sure this has been posted before, I just can't see it on my phone. So sorry for the duplicate.

Thanks!!!

    Im 15wks 3d with my 2nd and im not feeling anything yet either... i feel left out lol. Everyone says you feel the baby earlier the 2nd time around than you did with your first but ive yet to feel it.

    I'm 19 weeks today and have been feeling flutters since 17 weeks. Nothing really intense yet though. I know some FTMs don't feel anything until after 20 weeks.

    Thanks for the advice! Is it cool feeling your baby move?

    I am also a FTM, and I just felt movement this week. It mostly feels like flutters, but If I lightly push on my stomach I can feel the baby actually push back. It's so strange! My doctor said you should feel movement any where from 16-24 weeks.

    Which week are you in?

    I haven't felt anything yet either, but can't wait to. 

    Besides just being a FTM, the position of the placenta can affect when you'll feel movement too.  I have a friend who's placenta was in the front and she didn't feel anything for a long time (I forget how long exactly).

    Hopefully it will be a short wait, but then again it seems like time is flying!

    18w4 STM and have been feeling baby since late into 16 weeks, so not too long. Every pregnancy, baby, and mommy to-be is so different..... Can't wait for you to feel flutters!!! I think it feels like popping popcorn at first, now I'm getting knocks and wiggles in there!

    Just this week I've started feeling movement consistently and several times a day. But this is my second. First time I didn't feel movement consistently until a little over 20 weeks.

    FTM and I felt flutters at 16 weeks and light kicks at 17 weeks. I'm 19 now and am feeling consistent movement. Sounds like that's really early for a FTM though. Don't worry.. You'll be feeling something in the next few weeks :)

    Since last week, I've felt twinges/flutters which I guess could be baby. I also feel a lot of muscle soreness (I'm guessing is RLP?) so I don't know if that's all it is. I'm a FTM and started out overweight, so I'm sure that also leads to later feeling movement.

    I'm 17w FTM and nothing yet either - actually went to the OB today and she said maybe not til 20 and the first is always later. Made me feel better - I sit on the couch every evening poking at my belly but no dice.

    No but I just realized that I'm 16 weeks tomorrow and I first felt movement with my other two at the 17 weeks mark, so getting close! In my experience the baby doesn't become very active until after 20 weeks so you might have felt something and not realized it was the baby.

    I'm a FTM too, 18w exactly today as well. I *think* I felt my first flutter today, but I'm less than confident because I know my placenta is in the front, I'm overweight to begin with, and the FTM thing. It'll be interesting to see later once I'm sure it is flutters/kicks if I was right about what I felt today.

    I'm a FTM and have been feeling flutters consistently for about a week or so. Today after my lunch I felt a pretty good kick and it made me smile! I can't wait to start feeling more!

    First timer here & I'm 19 weeks 4 days and I feel baby quite often now! I started feeling flutters at 17/18 weeks and now it's definite movement! It's the best feeling ever!

    MW is a STM and can feel the baby move at times.  I am thinking it is more just flutters and "swimming".  She has been picking up on this for a week or two now.

    I'm a first timer and I started feeling my baby last week at 16 weeks and some days.  This week I've been feeling it pretty regularly only if I'm sitting still and lounging.  Can't feel anything on the outside yet.
    It's a GIRL!!

    I am 18w2d and I started feeling baby on Saturday. It's a wild hyper little thing, I feel baby almost constantly now. DH even got to feel it last night and he was totally creeped out and said it reminded him of an alien movie...lol.

    I'm 18 weeks, 2 days and a FTM and I've felt nothing yet.  I found out at my dating ultrasound that I have an anterior placenta though, so it may take longer for me to feel anything.  Hopefully we'll all start feeling something in the next month or so!

    I'm an FTM, 17 wks 3 days though at my last scan the measurements suggested I'm a few days further along than estimated. I could've sworn I felt something tonight and even texted DH about it--then some minutes later I burped and now I'm unsure. I thought I felt something in the car on Saturday, but so far nothing definite (though earlier tonight I would've sworn differently!) Oh and in case I wasn't wrong, the sensation felt like a tiny wave, then rippling, bubbliness.

    I felt it for the first time at 15 weeks (wasn't sure what it was then), didn't feel it for one week and baby poked me almost all afternoon on 17w1d. It felt a little strange at first but once you realize it is baby it's quite amazing. Hope you feel it soon!

    I'm a STM I have been feeling it since 16w my doc said usually second time mom's feel it sooner because they know what to look for you may have actually felt her move and just thought it was gas or something.

    STM here and I've been feeling movement since 14 weeks. I was surprised when I did. With DD I didn't feel anything until the end of 18 weeks and not regularly until over 20 weeks. 

    I'm 18 weeks now and feel movement off and on all day.

    I'm 16 weeks FTM and I haven't really felt the flutters inside but I was poking around laying down the other night and got poked back twice. None since though. I know it'll be sporadic for the next few/several weeks. It's going to be pretty crazy to know the sex and finally feel the little swimmer in the next month or so!
  • Options
    I'm also a FTM and I'm exactly 18 weeks today. I've been feeling my little angel move since about 16 weeks... I can definitely feel the difference. At first it was light flutters that felt like gas.. These movements are much stronger now and actually feel like movements. It's amazing ❤️ Hopefully you'll get to experience this feeling soon! Good luck.

    I'm a FTM and I just hit 19 weeks today. I've been feeling lots of movement since 17 weeks I believe but I know a lot of first time moms don't feel anything till 20 weeks, sometimes even later than that. I've been really sick for most of my pregnancy so far so feelings those little kicks and somersaults make me so happy. Don't worry! I'm sure baby will start moving soon.

    FTM and just started feeling something this week (19). I figured out that it's so light that I'm really not going to notice it unless I'm laying down doing nothing.
  • Options
    I'm at 19wks and a FTM. I started feeling movement around 16 wks when sitting still with my hand low on my belly. I couldn't feel from the outside, but somehow having the hand there helped me recognize it. My lil' guy is really active and my husband was able to feel kicks at 17 wks. Everyone is different and it's possible the placenta might be in front padding the kicks or the baby might be kicking in towards you rather than out, I think. It's such a surreal feeling! You'll feel them soon!
  • Options
    Also if you have an anterior placenta(which I have had both times) you may feel movement later.

    I'm a STM and have been feeling those wonderful butterfly flutters for the last week or so.  It's awesome!  I can't wait for the kicks so that DD and DH can feel baby Mia too!

    I've been feeling occasional flutters since about 14 and a half weeks, but little guy is measuring very large for his gestational age. I'm starting to feel them more consistently now at 17 weeks.

    First time momma here ! I was told I have a front facing placents was lucky to feel my little princess move at 13 weeks crazy I know but it literally felt like a tiny muscle spasm she really kicked it into gear a tiny 15 weeks and has developed a routine where she's most active at 1230 to 1 am and 6 to 7 am. I will be 19 wks tomorrow and tonight she kicked so hard she knocked my phone off my belly! Hopefully you will get to feel your baby move!
