PP's - I thought I'd never feel anything either (was starting to panic even...first timer nerves?) - but a few days ago (approx 18 weeks) a few internal flutters, or more like taps. Decided they were not gas, because they didn't travel around and out (ahem) - but stayed in one place. Then more often the last couple of days (could just be heightened awareness). Then lying in bed two nights ago, hand just under belly button, a huge TAP/sudden poking from the inside out. Whoa! Inside ----> outside! How cool!
Didn't sleep for ages, waiting for another one. Was rewarded in about another half an hour - and am now thinking I'm feeling things all the time (but particularly in the evening) - though, to be honest, some of it still MUST be a little gas. Heh heh.
JFI - 19 weeks on saturday, and of medium build.

- I feel the same...the pregnancy feels suddenly a lot more real again, or rather the baby does. Little squiggly thing. Very exciting all over again, after a month or so of 'normal life' dulling down the first excitement.
I'm also waiting for a scan next week...and the last week or so I've had quite a drop-off of symptoms, and it seemed sudden (though, I've picked up different symptoms in the last two days it seems). The movements (inside --- > outside! yay!) have quelled my anxiety too, as an added bonus to baby just making itself known.G
