Yes, I've been feeling the odd movement for about a week now.

I know it's early but I'm acutely aware of what those first movements feel like and being a tad nervous about this pregnancy, you have no idea how much of a relief it has been to feel bub kicking off against my uterus every now and then. I've only felt my baby move in 4 of my 6 pregnancies and it's been the only indicator that little is wrong, so I'm holding onto these feelings being movements as I have a scan next week and I'm scared witless that they are going to tell me that another of my babies has died ...

Ohhhh I'm jealous - I'm on baby 3 also and nothing yet . I will be 17 weeks on Monday . Do you think I should worry ? Maybe I should give the midwife a buzz to check ????

Almost 19 weeks and for the last few days it feels like this little bean is NEVER still laughing2.gif

It rolls, kicks, somersaults, jiggles and is generally on the go almost all day, or so t feels.

Hope this is not a sign of things to come!

Yes! I wasn't expecting to feel anything for quite a while but am having twins & felt them kicking last week at 15w2d. This is my first pregnancy so wasn't sure what to expect but it was so great, such an amazing sense of wellbeing and happiness as it went on for some time. I'm sure it will happen for you soon.. friend of mine didn't feel anything until 22 weeks due to where the placenta was situated. original.gif

I have been feeling flutters for a couple of weeks which have progressed to more definite movements in the last few days.  I can't wait for DH to be able to feel something too!

Yes, for the past week I've felt movt, especially when I lie down at night to go to sleep.

To the previous poster who was worried about not feeling any movt yet don't worry -for my first I didn't feel anything definate until about 21 weeks.

It is something to look forward to though - very comforting - and slightly annoying further on in the pregnancy when you are trying to get some shut eye! oomg.gif
