    Default When do you start to feel the baby move?

    First time mum here just wondering when you first were able to actually feel the baby moving, and when it was prominent enough for your partner to feel?

    I think it depends on the individual. I felt mine around 17 weeks I think, but my partner couldn't until about 22 weeks. I've heard of women feeling it a lot earlier though.
    Congrats also!

    I first felt her move at around 19 weeks, still not sure I can feel her kick though. I feel what I think are my muscles twitching, I have wondered if they were kicks though.... My OB told me I wouldnt feel them for a while due to my anterior placenta.

    This is my first bub and I felt her kick around 20+3. They're getting stronger and more frequent, however my dp still can't feel them yet....
