I had always heard between 18 and 22 weeks, depending on how baby is positioned, how big or small mom is and also how many times you have been pregnant before. Usually smaller and non first time moms feel movement sooner. With my first pregnancy I was on the larger side to begin with and I felt slight movement around 19 weeks. Enjoy your pregnancy.

Every woman is different. I felt little flutters around 12 or 13 weeks and knew for sure i felt kicking by 16 weeks. How far along are you? They say if you have been pregnant before you may feel movements very early on. If it's your first it's sometimes hard to distinguish between movements and gas. =)

i am currently 20 weeks. i felt fetal movement about 2 weeks ago but as one has said it does depend on the mother's size. im only 5'1 and am on the petite side. my fiance couldnt feel it until just 2 days ago.

I agree. Every woman is different.  I started feeling movement around 16 weeks and constant movement at 18 weeks.  This is my first pregnancy as well.  Good luck!

I started feeling movement around 14 weeks but it didn't get consistent, everyday, until last week, 19wks.  This is my first pregnancy and I'm on the "thicker" side. =)  But I can feel pretty good kicks every now and then and constant movement.  Somedays are quieter than others though.

Every person is different. They generally say that you will feel quickening (butterflies) at about 12-16 weeks and then real kicking at about 18-22 weeks... however depending on your size or which pregnancy this is for you it could differ. I started feeling butterflies at about 13 weeks (could of been gas bubbles though!) and then real kicks about about 16-17 weeks. Didn't get super consistant until about 25 weeks.

I have had two pregnancy's and I always felt movement around 14 weeks. I think the size of the mother matters also.

I am currently 13 weeks, going into my 14th, I have had two c-sections, and one ovary removed, so three major operations and due to the scar tissue, I have been feeling fluttering for about two weeks now.. I get kicked on and off now during the day, esp if I lay on a certain side, my baby is also positioned right in the front of the uterus.. So again everyone is differnet with different body types, just take some time to yourself, and lay on each side for a time, and see if you feel anything, but be relaxed and quiet, if you dont feel something you will soon.. Enjoy..

My first I didm't feel till 18 weeks my second I felt at 15. The smaller you are the more likely you'll feel the baby.
