    Default First time mum

    hi there and congrats!!

    I started this thread last week ;link below) which I found incredibly helpful as a starting point of things to buy and things to think about to get set up for bub. I'm 10 weeks along with my first too and have no idea about stuff you need to buy etc.

    re the feeling bub move, I wouldn't have a clue as I'm not far along enough yet!

    It was at around 19-20 weeks for me, but it depends on the position of the baby and placenta among other things. I think around 20 weeks would be average

    With my first I got flutters at 13, then I got a good wallop at 18 weeks when I went to pee. This pregnancy I'm only 13 weeks so far, could swear I got a kick yesterday but I was still having phantom kicks from my first baby 2 years ago so I dunno lol congratulations
