Who has been feeling the baby kicking?

This is my 4th pregnancy so I am 99% certain that it isn't intestinal distractions. I'm 14 weeks and feeling DEFINITE kicks and a LOT of them.

Actually starting to get worried for the last trimester if it turns out there is a little soccer player in there.

I was able to start feeling the babies at 14weeks too, though not that strong. Sounds like you have an active one in there! DS#2 was like that, super strong and super active, and he's still my most active child lol. What I love most is when it's strong enough to feel from the outside. DH just felt ours for the first time last night

I've been feeling them consistently since about 15.5 weeks. It's fun!

I love homemade: cute skirts, apricot jam, and family!

Just a few kicks so far. It's really cute and exciting, and I'm trying to enjoy them, but this little one likes to kick right in the bladder or the cervix at the WORST times!

Yep! And I too am concered about my poor cervix this time around. Last time I swore a foot was about to come shooting out of my crotch at any moment and this little apple seems to favor it too. Nothing like grabbing your crotch in pain while shopping!

Me too! The baby is favoring my left side, so always kicks in the same area. I just started feeling actual kicks a couple days ago. I only feel them several times a day, but feel general activity more often. I actually felt a kick while making dinner tonight. That was cool!

Yes! After worrying about not much movement - this little one has started kicking up a storm. I had my hand on my belly as I was drifting off to sleep last night and I could actually feel lit with my hand. Sooo cool!

I'm 18weeks 4days and I haven't felt anything. Should I be worried? You all seem to be feeling them so early.

understars--i don't think you need to be worried, if it's your first pregnancy it's common not to feel anything until later, even around 20 weeks. many of these mamas have had multiple children.

i'm not in the movement camp yet, i felt something a couple of times, but nothing definitive or frequent enough...15 1/2 weeks here. looking forward to movement!

I am feeling little kicks also, and I am 15 weeks. I definetly know. I was driving last night and felt them at a stop light, felt them in the morning when I woke up and I just stayed there still until they stopped. I have been feeling them a little off and on for a couple weeks but they are starting to get more obvious. If this baby is anything like how my son was in the womb I need to prepare myself for having a very sore side where most of the kicks went during the 3rd trimister and the ending of the 2nd.

understars - in my first pregnancy I didn't feel anything until 18 or 20 weeks. I felt movement much earlier in my second pregnancy. I'm sure you'll feel it soon and it will be magical!

Understars,
I've read that for some first time Moms it can be up to 22 weeks before feeling the first flutters. But, then after that you'll be able to feel it all the time. It's fun -- you have so much to look forward to.

It was AFTER my big u/s with my first baby - so at least 20 weeks - that I felt her move much.
With my son, it was 16 weeks or so. With this one, I felt unmistakeable movement for the first time today - 15w5d.

Me too! I occasionally think I feel something, but it could just be stomach gurgles. How do you know???? And I am 18 weeks and a couple days too.

Oh yes, for weeks. I felt it 11+4 first time, and every 2-3 days there in the start. But the last few weeks I've felt the baby every day! It's so wonderful!
