I remember being so excited to feel baby move but it wasn't until 18 weeks with LO1 that I felt any movement and it was super subtle. I questioned it for a few days! With LO2 I think it was a few weeks earlier than that, I think around 16 weeks but it was more obvious to me.
How many weeks were you when you felt baby kicks/movement? Did you know what it was right away?

It was a few days before I hit 16 weeks. I knew it right away! I had been paying attention to every little feel for weeks, but it was always a gas bubble. But this time, it felt slightly different and there was no toot to follow lol. So I knew it was baby!

I'm a FTM due in February and I didn't really feel movement until 20 weeks. Now, at 24 weeks, it's pretty consistent, but I didn't feel confident it was the baby and not gas or something else until after my 20 week ultrasound.

It was about 16/17 weeks soon after I drank a chai latte from Starbucks!

Around 19 weeks. I started feeling tiny sensations after lunch, when I had to pee. I don't know how to describe them, but they weren't "flutters" or "pops," so I wasn't sure they were the baby. By 20 weeks the sensations were consistent and strong enough that I was sure it was the baby.

Early. I felt a couple little flutters around 14 weeks, some more definite movements around 16 weeks. By 18 weeks I could feel it from the outside, and by 20 weeks I'd been feeling daily movement for about a month. I think it had a lot to do with how active and squirmy she was (and is), and also wonder if me being petite and her running out of room quickly had something to do with it.

My first was at 17 weeks. This one was more like 14 weeks!

I felt it at 11 weeks with #1 but dismissed it.... then when it happened again at 15 weeks I knew it was baby!
With #2 I felt it at 11 weeks again and it has been constant ever since. At 15 weeks, its still tickles. I cant wait for proper kicks!

@Bao: 20.5 weeks ha. Totally average to late! But I was waiting and paying attention so yes I knew what it was!!!

Late! I thought I felt maybe a flutter or 2 around 19 or 20w, but it was really closer to 22 or 23w! I was worried something was wrong. I had an anterior placenta which I think masked a lot of movement. Also it was my 1st baby

18/19 weeks for both, but they're sporadic and not consistent. With DS, I didn't feel exterior/consistent movement until 22 weeks. I'm currently 20 weeks with DD and I'm guessing she'll be the same. Wish she would move more now so I can be more reassured!

Around 21 weeks for LO1, 13-14 weeks this time for LO2. I knew what it was both times but was surprised it happened so early the second time around.
