It was around 18- 20 weeks with all three.
Where is your placenta OP? If it is at the front of your belly that can "cushion" baby's movements.

Baby 1: 24 weeks

Baby 2: 22 weeks

Baby 3: 17 weeks


I think it can vary depending on the placenta.

I was a day or 2 off 20 weeks. Though I didn't feel anything daily till almost 24, and I needed to be laying down or my abdomen pushed up against something to feel anything.

Weird thing is I felt movement quite early on for my first - 16 or 17 weeks. Now I can go a few days with hardly much. Then a few days of good movements, then quiet for a few.

About 17 weeks with my first, felt like tiny muscle twitches, like eye twitches, in my belly.  Are you in a midwifery program, or seeing an OB, can you go and see if all is well?

I hope bub is just a quieter one than your others, good luck OP!!

First Baby here - first proper movements were around 17weeks only when lying down. DH could feel them at 18weeks.
Bub seems to have one full on day of non stop movement for 24 hours (mainly when im exhausted) and will then have a couple of quiet days, to the point i start to worry but is still moving just very intermittently.

About 16 weeks for all 3 of mine. I had a friend who never felt a thing until 26 weeks though! We were pregnant at the same time, she was ahead of me by 4 weeks and was sooooo frustrated that she couldn't feel anything.

This is my 4th pregnancy and I'm almost 20 weeks. I have only just started to feel real movement and that is the lastest so far for me.

It's been freaking me out a bit but I'm high risk so I've been seeing OB every 2 weeks and have been able to have a quick look at the bub each time.

We are probably just too busy to notice most of the movements and then when you try to concentrate on feeling them, the bub is sleeping or just isn't moving much at that moment! Typical!

Baby #1 - 18 weeks

Baby #2 - 14 weeks

Baby #3 (this one) - 17 weeks


I was worried too but I honestly think it's that I barely get time to sit down these days!

Not til around 22 weeks with my first as my placenta was on the front, but about 16 weeks with this one. I bet your placenta is on the front OP, so you can't feel the movements in the same way that you are expecting to.

i friend of mine didn't feel number 3 move until 32-33 weeks, first two were both 17-18 weeks. I was shocked she hadn't felt anything befor then! Her placenta was right over the front of baby, acting as a shock absorber!

Somewhere around 16-20 weeks. But it's usually not regular at this stage, and if the placenta is at the front it will take longer
