    Default When did you feel bub move?

    Probably been asked a million times but im a bit stressed as im 16w3day and havent had an ultrasound since the 12 week scan. I havent felt bub move not even little flutters...
    WHen do you usually start to feel them come on and am i stressing over nothing? Bubs had a nice strong heartbeat of 160bpm at our last ultrasound...

    My midwife told me that its normal for a first time mum not to feel anything until up to 20 weeks. I have a few pregnant friends right now and one told me she felt it at 15 weeks, the other not until 17 weeks so everyone is different. It also depends on the position of your placenta and where bub is sitting.

    Don't worry if you can't feel bub yet as some don't till around the 20 week mark mainly due to the way bub is positioned.

    My first one I didn't feel until just over 20 weeks. I'm sure you'll feel bub in the next few weeks

    First felt DD at 23 weeks ^_^ I was on holiday in Melbourne and I was trying to go to sleep in the hotel! My placenta was at the front so it took a while, but I remember very clearly when it happened.

    Mine was about 16 weeks I think, but even then I wasn't really sure if it was the baby I could feel.

    I felt my baby 2 days in a row a few days ago at 15+3 and 15+4 but nothing since. Heard her heart beat yesterday do i know she's okay.

    I think it was just goodluck and she was sitting up high. Plus I have a posterior placenta. I'm not worried i know I'll start feeling her regularly soon.

    I know it's normal too feel it later with your first.
