I am due the 25ish, and I am sure I haven't felt the baby move. This is my fourth so you would figure I could feel it earlier.
for those due the second half of the month have you felt the baby move? am I the only one?

I am so glad you posted this. I was beginning to worry. I have felt funny things, but not really sure it is baby, if you know what I mean. You & I have the same due date. In the last 2 days, I have not had any of those flutters, and keep telling myself it is just to early. I know baby is growing, my body is really changing. But I remember those really hard kicks & moves from the last two time, I wonder if I am really feeling the baby this time. Anyway, your post reasured me it is just to early to really tell. Thanks.

I am not due the 2nd half of month but the very beginning and I only started very infrequently feeling slight flutters at 17wks. Now at 20wks. I am feeling a little more movement...I am on pg #2 but I have a little more "cushion" for the baby to kick through for me to feel it!

I am officially due June 1st, but my ultrasound showed due dates of 5/25 and 5/27... So I lurk here a lot

I felt one definite rolly-thump a week or so ago, and possibly felt some movement yesterday morning, but that's it. This will be my first child but I had a previous pregnancy that ended at 10wks.

I was super-impatient to start feeling movement and was content after feeling it the first time, but now I want more, dangit.

thanks everyone for the reassurance, I think I am just so busy that I haven't noticed, I heard the heartbeat so I know there is something in there, and next week I go back to the mw so hopefully I will notice some more movement before then.

I am due May 27 with my first and haven't felt anything yet. I had a mw appointment on Tuesday and we listened to the heartbeat, so I know somebody is in there and doing well. But that is the only reassuarance I have right now. I am hoping I'll feel the baby move by the New Year's (we do nto celebrate Christmas) as a present from him/her to us.

I FINALLY started feeling kicks and movement last night. With both my others it was at 14 and 16 weeks when i felt them. This time i am 19 weeks. I had been feeling a very occasional flutter (like one a week) for a while now but last night and all day today i have felt them almost constantly.

I'm due May 26th and haven't felt a thing yet. The other day I thought I was feeling something but then realized it was too high up to be baby. I think with dd I didn't feel anything until around 20 weeks or so, so I haven't been expecting it. I'm not worried

This is my third pregnancy. I am due May 13th. I just started feeling her move (around 16 or 17 weeks). At first it was just flutters~ the "I think it was the baby but I'm not sure" kind, but now I feel her move all the time~ except of course, when anyone else tries to feel her kick! :LOL That's how it was with Colby, too. I think that I am so busy with this pregnancy that it took me longer to notice than with my first 2 when I had more down time.

This baby is really really active. It never stops kicking and moving around. I can see it on the outside, and I am not a thin person. Weird!

At 21w, I'm feeling lots of movement and dh felt it for the first time last night. This is my 3rd baby and I'm on the thin side, and have been feeling movement for 3 wks or so. Last night I pushed on my abdomen and felt him inside- I remember that feeling with my girls- you're actually touching that little, solid body of another person you've not yet met. It's so awesome!

Just felt the baby move for the first time! I'm 17 weeks. I didn't feel my dd move until around 20 weeks, so this was a bit of a surprise, but it was definitely the flutter of the bean!

I'm due on the 28th and I first felt the baby move about 2 weeks ago. Now I feel it every once and a while, but it's just little tiny movements. This is my first and I'm so excited to really FEEL it.

I am due may 12th. I have been feeling movement for about a week now. To me it feels like being poked from the inside, not like flutters. My husband has felt it poke once. Last night he had his hand on my abdomen because I wanted him to feel it poke again, but it wasn't cooperating. Instead he said he could feel the baby's heartbeat! I didn't know that could be possible. He said he felt both mine and the baby's heartbeats with his hand. He also said the baby gave him the feeling that it was a girl again (he first said that the baby was a girl when we first found out we were going to have a baby). I don't know if my husband has special powers or if he is just in-tune with the baby or what, but it is pretty interesting!

yes! yes! yes!
I am now positive I am feeling it too!
I started feeling something on the weeknd (just after I turned 18 weeks), but wasn't sure if this is "the thing". is it gas? does it just seem to me? but now I have put all my doubts aside! Sometimes it does feel like gas, but ummm ... I'm not passing nay gas *lol*, so it must be the baby! sometimes it also feels like little bubbles of something are bursting inside of me. The feeling is very soft and gentle. I am soo excited! This is a wonderful New Year present to us from our little one.

Feeling it every day now, but it's still so faint and small. Waiting for the big stuff. That's my favorite. Still not quite feeling like it's a real baby yet.

I didn't feel definite movement until a couple of weeks ago. This is my 4th as well. As I suspected I have an anterior placenta so "Peanut" had to grow and gain the strength for me to feel a kick through the cushioning of the placenta. DH hasn't felt a kick or any movement. Poor man thinks the baby doesn't "like" him... lol
