Talking fetal movements

I just began feeling my baby move about a week ago, and now I can feel him all the time. I can feel him squirming around in there, it's so wierd! I'm 5 months along now; I thought I would feel it sooner. When did you first feel the baby moving?

It is so exciting to feel little movements isn't it? i first felt mine in the middle of my 5th month. I might have felt it a little sooner but was not sure what it was. CONGRATULATIONS!

I felt mine at about 16 1/2 weeks. I didn't believe it at first because this is my first and I never expected to feel anything so soon. It's still not very noticible, but such a delight every time it happens.

With my first 2, I felt them move around 17 weeks and with my third, I felt him at around 16. I used to swear that by the time he was out of there he would have a black belt in karate!

I felt my first movement at about 17 weeks too. By about 20 they were unmistakeable, and by 24 they were constant. Now at 29 weeks, they can be almost painful. And the coolest part is, when the baby gets big enough, you can actually feel him/her change positions, turn over, and move arms and legs across your belly.

I believe I felt my first flutter at 14 wks., but I am not for sure since this is my first. Between then and 16 wks. it was just flutters and then the kicking started!!! It is an awesome feel isn't it!!!! Now she kicks like crazy!!! I think I am going to have quite the active girl!!! Sometimes she moves and kicks so many times I can't even keep count in a 10 minute period!!! She is probably practicing for her black belt or aerobic class!!!!

Enjoy all your movements that you get!!!!

God Bless!!!!
It's a girl!!!!

I'm 18 weeks and still not sure if it's my little one moving around in there or if it's just GAS!

I'm looking forward to feeling some distinct movement in the next couple of weeks.

Take care!
