feeling movement

Hi Ladies!
Just wondering (and i know every woman and every pregnancy is different) how far along were you when you began to feel movement?

    I was exactly 19 weeks along when I first felt movement and it soon became very consistent, regular, and undeniably the baby.

    19-20 weeks... and that was pretty much with both pregnancies. I might have been even further with my first... like 23 weeks.

    I've been unsure about maybe feeling movement since around 20 weeks, but I'm 23 weeks today and have been sure about it for about a week and a half.
    I love feeling LO move around in there!

    I was getting worried about not feeling anything (I'll be 18 weeks tomorrow)... This thread is reassuring ;) Thanks to everyone who answered... Of course I can't wait to feel the baby but I guess it's all normal!

    I thought I first felt movement around 18 weeks but it was just a light 'poke' here and there and I wasn't sure. Around 20 weeks I was sure and now at 24 it's been everyday for a few weeks and I can even see my stomach move. It feels weird but is reassuring.

    First time I was sure was 19 weeks. I felt 2 little pokes from the inside like nothing I'd felt before. I felt light, random flutters after that (felt like muscle twitches) and wasn't 100% sure it was baby until I had an extra ultrasound (vaginal) and I could see the baby flinching and felt what I had been feeling and was like, "ok that IS baby!" :D

    Last night, I felt the baby rolling and kicking a bit.
    I was laying down with my hand on my belly.

    Thank you ladies for your responses! This is my first pregnancy I'm 2 days from my 24th week and here and there i do feel little little flutters but no clear movement yet. Just thought by now i would :/

    The flutters more than likely are hiccups - that's what I felt the most with my first. I did get the occasional kick to the ribs and adjusting of the arms, but it seemed fort he most part that she found a comfy spot and didn't want to move! So this go around having a very active baby is different - and wakes me up more at night when my bladder is the target!

    Some flutters at 16wks...now obvious pokes at 18w, especially when laying down.
    2nd pregnancy for me.

    It also depends on whether your placenta is in the front of your uterus or back. Mine is in the front, so it acts as a cushion between me and the baby, so harder to notice movement. I had flutters that I could feel for my first pregnancy at 20-21 weeks, this time (18 weeks tomorrow), I felt a little flutter yesterday, only because I laid on my tummy for a minute to see if I could feel him move...otherwise, I have felt nothing so far.

    This time around I was 16 weeks when I felt actual movement. Her kicks and movements are so much stronger now at 23 weeks though.

    Around 22 to 23 weeks is when I knew for sure it was the baby and not gas. LOL. I'm 33 weeks now and the baby is very busy in there. The OB even told me I have an active baby. I think it will be a busy kid. Oh well. My DH and I are both busy, so I think we can handle it.

    I could feel completely obvious movements from my little man at 14 weeks!

    With my daughter, I felt light flutters at 16-17 weeks...but didn't realize it was actually her until after 20 weeks, when I could feel her kicking on the outside.

    I'm 20 weeks and haven't really felt anything so far, nothing that I know for sure is the baby anyway. I saw the midwife on Monday though and it turns out I have an anterior placenta so it's sitting at the front, which will cushion movements a lot. So I probably won't feel much for another 4-6 weeks.

    At 13 weeks I could feel the amniotic sac slide when I would lay on my side in bed but that stopped by 15 weeks. So I could tell there where she was but not feel her moving.

    Then I wasn't sure if it was her I felt until around 23 weeks.

    I would say the flutters started around 18 weeks....clear kicks maybe 22 weeks...Now he jumps and kicks from talking or if I lay a certain way...

    The first undeniable kick that startled me was at 21 weeks. Everything I felt before that was subtle and I was unsure of what I was really feeling. After 21 weeks I started feeling him every day, every few hours.
