i was right on time with the average expectations and started feeling little flutters/pokes last week at 18 weeks.  i'm 19 weeks today and i think i could feel some movements on the outside of my belly this morning.  could that be happening already?  of course it was JUST after DH left (literally maybe a minute) for work so i didn't get to call him over to feel it.  i know he'll be so excited when he can feel something!  baby has been pretty active today... getting used to feeling strange things inside, especially since i have ulcerative colitis and i'm used to only unpleasant things going on in my belly!  a nice change for sure!

hello!! how exciting!! my son has been very active-probably since about 12 weeks. the last couple of weeks, he must be doing aerobics or something-lol. cuz i feel flutters and pokes and jumps all the time. i think i first felt him move around in june-at about 9 weeks along, but more regularly since 12 weeks. i think 19 weeks sounds about right!! i love this part of pregnancy-it really starts to sink in that theres a lil person in there!!!! take care!!

I'm 21 weeks and Skylar is now very active, I swear I felt her arm a few days ago. DH finally feels her move all the time. I had my 9 month old laying on my chest and Skylar was just kicking away lol now I have an idea as to when she moves so when I don't feel movement I wake her up lol

Such an exciting time in pregnancy. I started feeling the baby pretty early, like 14 weeks, but definitely more consistent at 16 weeks on. Now, I can feel it everytime he moves. I can feel him from the outside, but I'm sure that's just because I can also feel him from the inside, so I already know what I'm feeling. DH can't feel him yet, but I'm sure it'll be soon.

baby was active again last night. DH was already half asleep, but he woke up and was able to feel one big movement and maybe another smaller one. what a fun first for him! :smileyhappy:
