I said I would never forget but I think it was around 18-20 weeks before I felt kicking and moving with my first.  It felt like little butterflies at first.  I thought it was gas lol.

I'm 17 weeks also and I don't feel baby move yet. Hang in there, don't stress. I feel the same way. Just waiting to feel something.

Hey im almost 19 weeks I think I've felt mine on and off but not every day. A friend of mine who has a 6month old told me it could also depend on where your placenta is situated if it's at the front it might take a bit longer to feel it. Hope this helps xo
