<p>I don't think I feel this baby move much at all! I'm 18 weeks... and this is my 4th!!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>My gf reminded me that how you feel movement and when can depend a lot on the placenta. <img alt="wink1.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.mothering.com//images/smilies/wink1.gif"></p>
<p> </p>
<p>I figure pretty soon I'll feel more. Even when baby is big, if I have a busy day I don't always feel kicking.</p>

<p>I'm 19 weeks today and can say for certain I felt 1 big thud at the end of last week.  I've felt some occassional little flutters that I am 90% sure are baby but definitely not every day. They seem to be happening more frequently now though so hopefully soon I will be able to feel something every day.  I didn't feel a thing with my girls til after 20 weeks so this is early for me to be feeling!  Since its my favorite thing about being pregnant I'm glad I'm feeling it earlier this time!</p>

<p>It hasn't been really consistent for me.  Fluttering on and off.  The baby has started to kick in the last week or so, and sufficiently enough that you can feel it from the outside.  This mostly happens at night when I lie down in my bed.  Last Saturday night, she danced about for about 1-2 hours.  I've only felt her at night a few times.  Never during the day. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>We have discovered that she doesn't like to have her space encroached upon.  So if I place my laptop on my belly or if my DW presses gently on my belly, you're guaranteed to get a little kick.  I'm now 20w1d.</p>

<p>It's not consistent for me either. I feel maybe four or five flutters a day and I've felt one thud. I'm 17W1D. This is my second. I'm hoping it means a more laid back kid <img alt="wink1.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.mothering.com//images/smilies/wink1.gif"></p>

Exact same here except I am 18w today! I, too, am hoping that this means a more chill 2nd baby.  I could feel strong consistent movements from DD by 16 weeks; she is 18 months old now and is still jumping all over the place 24/7.</p>

<p>I am 20w0d and I feel them every 3-4 hours.  I feel them mostly when I'm sitting or laying down, but a couple of days ago felt them while walking!  Had my 20week anatomy scan today and saw the kicks on the screen as I felt them! Totally awesome!!!</p>

<p>i'm 19-ish weeks and am just starting to feel constant movement. last week, i began to feel more frequent, definite flutters, and in seven days, the difference is remarkable. this is my fourth, and i've felt each of my previous babies around 16 weeks, so it is a relief to finally feel definite baby movement!</p>

<p>I'm 16 weeks and have felt movement for about 2 weeks now. It's my second. I'm surprised because the midwives believe my placenta is anterior. I've definitely felt jabs here and there though. When I had my 11 week ultrasound, my mom and hubby said the baby was flipping all over the place :) I don't feel anything constant yet, just random little punches or kicks!</p>

<p>I am glad to see this thread! I am about 18 wks and I have felt some kicking about a week and a half ago and nothing for several days after and was very worried. Sometime midweek I started feeling very faint flattering every other evening when I am in bed about to fall asleep.</p>

<p>I'm almost 21 weeks (as of Monday) and feel movement irregularly several times a day.  It's not usually big movement nor as definitive as "kicks."</p>

<p>I've been feeling fluttering, or swishing about for 2 weeks pretty consistently, i am 17 1/2 weeks today. yesterday i had a hard time feeling them, but i was gassy, lol, and was running around busy all day, but today i'm home and am noticing them a bit some more. I notice them most after i pee, eat or go up or down the stairs, Definitely feeling it at least a few times a day, I am feeling the baby swishing about right now.</p>

<p>I am almost 17 weeks and have felt what I think is the baby for the past couple of weeks... however, it's still hard to tell. It could be gas - teehee. That's what my midwife said too. I heard that many women don't feel much until around 19-20 weeks, so we should take every flutter as a little gift! I am trying not to obsess over it - all will be well whether I feel movement on a certain day or not!</p>

<p>I am 20 weeks today, and I have been feeling nearly constant movement for quite a while now.  Maybe 4 weeks or more?  I notice if I *don't* feel the baby moving.:)</p>
<p>But I first felt the baby move at 11weeks 1 day.  I tend to feel my babies rather early.  I felt my first baby at only 15 weeks.  I'm still not feeling "big" movements, but lots of little nudges, occasional flips, and little jabs.  The true "fun" is yet to come.LOL</p>
