    Default 18weeks and only 1 big kick

    As a first timer I'm not sure if this is 'normal' but I've only felt 1 decent kick and lots of little 'flutters'. Anyone else in the same boat?

    I really didn't start feeling any obvious kicks until 20 weeks so what you are experiencing seems normal to me

    Very normal. I had flutters from 16-21 weeks and started getting big kicks after that.

    I had hardly any kicks with DD until about 30 weeks. I had a few extra scans done. We think it was because I had the placenta at the front. Even during an u/s you could c her kicking, the radiographer could feel it and I couldn't feel a thing.

    My dr says 20 weeks is normal for feeling proper kicks. If your placenta is at the front I was told another 3-4 weeks after that. Trust me, those flutters turn into big kicks soon enough. Our lil bubba does not like the iPad on my belly so constantly pushes against it.

    Exactly what I had at 18 weeks. It'll get more definite as they get bigger.

    I didnt feel any kicks till about 24 - 25 weeks. Not even flutters before that. Drove me nuts as EVERYONE seemed to have felt flutters but not me. Had more than one U/S done & the ob would ask me did you feel that & I'm like no! Btw my placenta was at the BACK! My ob said to me there is no explanation as to why you dont feel the kicks.

    From 28wks onwards I have felt her move. These movements are very pronounced & still continue (I'm 36wks now).

    Everyones different I guess my bubba was not a kicker but a BIG mover!

    Thanks so much for your feedback! Being surrounded by women who are constantly telling you that at 18 weeks you should definately be feeling your baby all the time can get a little worrysome so to receive your feedback and hear that it's 'normal' not to feel much is very reassuring.

    I felt ds at 16 weeks and dp could feel him at about 18, they were very strong! Now I'm 23 weeks with my second and have only just started feeling movements now...and only when I lay down and concentrate on feeling them. My placenta is at the front and it drives me crazy because its so different from the first time.
