I'm new to this so not sure how it goes!
Anyway - I'm in week 15 and haven't felt any movements yet. friends who've been pregnant say you feel something like champagne bubbles, but nothing for me...
Anyone feels anything yet?

It is probably still a bit early. What number baby is this for you? And do you know where your placenta is?

With DD (my first bub) I didn't feel her until 18/19 weeks with an anterior (at the front) placenta.
With subsequent babies movement may be felt earlier.

Im almost 13 weeks with this one and again have an anterior placenta. I don't expect to feel much for a few more weeks

With DD I didn't get any bubbles or flutter, just nudges that turned into full blown kicks quite quickly. My placenta padded out most of the smaller movements so it wasn't until DD was much bigger that she was able to kick big enough for it to be felt through the placenta as well. Hope that makes sense!

Hi there,
It's my first.. it's all so new and exciting original.gif
I'm not sure where my placenta is, but I started showing quite early and few people said it could be that my placenta is at the front!
How old is DD? are you having an easy pregnancy?
Still keeping all my senses sharp so I don't miss any possible early movements!
This is quite nice, chating to people in the same situation as me - I've never done that before and I'm liking it... just not sure how it works? how do I join a conversation etc...
Take care
