I am almost 18 weeks and haven't felt the bub move yet, not even those fluttering, bubble, gassy feelings that some women describe. Is that normal? When did you first feel your baby?

When do you first feel the baby move?

I didn't feel my first until about 20 weeks which is quite late. This one I felt at 11 weeks, which is quite early.

Subscribing as I'm wondering too!

For first babies, you are usually likely to be later as your uterine walls are thicker.
I felt bub at about 18 weeks for my first and felt E at about 12 weeks. Most are still about 14 weeks for me.
Have you had a scan ? Is bub moving? If so, I wouldn't stress yet. It is lovely when you can feel the flutterings cos then you feel reassured that all is well.

I wouldn't worry, then. Honestly, when I realised that what I thought were tummy grumblings were actually bub moving (first baby), I had felt them for weeks and hadn't recognised what they were.
I realised straight away for later bubs!
Good luck - all in good time. You can congratulate yourself on your firm tummy muscles!

I felt DS (first bub) move around 16/17 weeks (I had an anterior placenta, so was quite late). It was a bubbling feeling. I agree with mrsd about mistaking tummy grumbling for bub moving - they are similar feelings.

I was 22 weeks with DS1 (anterior placenta, plus it's normal to feel it a little later with your first because you don't know what to look out for). With Newbie I felt it at 16 weeks.

I knew for sure at 20weeks, but had serious suspicions from 19w. In hindsight, I'm pretty sure I felt a one-off kick at 18w, but didn't believe it at the time. This is my first bub, and the placenta is anterior, which means its between bubs and your belly, so bubs has to kick harder.
