I am almost 5 months, sometimes I think I might feel something but then I am not too sure. it never lasts long and if I try to touch my belly to feel it, I don't feel anything. when did you start feeling the baby move and kick??

I am not really sure, but I am thinking it was 4 maybe 5 months- it feels like butterflies in your belly at first. But to feel it on the outside with your hand I believe is more around 5-6 months.

With my first son I was about 5-6 months along. The second one was more like 3 months before feeling little butterflies. If this is your first pregnancy then it does take a lot longer to feel those first kicks. Best way is to lay down on your left side during the day and see if you can feel the baby move. Babies are more likely to move and kick around when you aren't especially if it is a time of day when you normally are more active. Just be patient and it will happen soon! When it does it makes the whole wait that much more worth it. Congrats on your new little bun in the oven!!
