  • I'm 11wk4d pregnant and I was wondering when you felt the first kick. This is my first baby and first pregnancy! I cannot wait to feel the first one! I love being pregnant!

  • I was about 18-19 weeks, but I'm also petite and my uterus was tipped forward (at least that's what my doc told me!). It's different for everyone as to when that first definite real kick is felt. You might start feeling little flutters or what might feel like gas, but really is baby moving soon.

  • I was at 20 weeks. I remember the doctor telling me the same thing as the post above. Great comment wendysue611. The anticipation of a kick might stress you out! So just go with the flow of things and it'll happen when you least expect it!
Thank you Jessica786!

  • O I know, I'm not stressing, but just can't wait to feel it! When I was at the dr last and she was hearing the heartbeat, the baby was moving like crazy!
