This is my fifth child I am pregnant with and I am 16 weeks 2 days and havent felt the baby kick yet. I am not large, or beefy in the stomach area. Just a little tiny chub left from my last son ;) I thought I felt my last child by now. What time did you feel your baby kick?

LOL and what kills me is no matter what time they go to bed, they are up the same time in the morning! THey could be up until midnight and still wake up at like 6am! Poor us, I am getting to bed too! It's almost 10 here, need to mentally prepare for tomorrow..lol!

I think I felt my baby's kick around 20th week, don't worry every child have their own time on when to kick your tummy.

With the first, I was about 6 months, and didn't find out I was until I was almost 5 months. With the 2nd and 3rd I believe about 4 or 5 months, 5 months with the 4th and 5th, and with this one, around 4 months. Remember, not only is every child different, but also each pregnancy. I'm sure everything is fine. Do you have a bebe sounds? You can listen to the baby's movement and heartbeat. My fiance got me one for christmas from Wal-Mart. I really like it. If you don't have one let me know, this is my last child I'll sell you mine. They cost like $20, I'll sell mine to you for 10 or 12 (depending on postage). Just don't fret, everything will be ok.

With my first couple of sons it was later in the fifth or sixth month. This time, I started getting flutters around 16 weeks, once in awhile. At 17 weeks it became more consistant. I now (at 20 weeks) have movement I can feel everyday. Now these are just flutters. I've only felt kicks from the outside maybe two or three times so far. It took me by surprise. But from what I've read, it depends on each person. I wouldn't worry about it unless your doctor says something is wrong.

When I was pregnant with my first son I felt him kick for the first time around the 5th month. I felt my second son at about 4 months. With my third pregnancy I felt very slight, but enough to notice, movement in my first month, just a few days before I miscarried. :( I was so surprised to feel movement so soon, but when I told my husband this he did not believe me and said I was just imagining things as it was too soon for me to feel anything. Well all I can say is that I did, several times a day until that last day. After that, I didn't feel any more movements, whatever they were.

I have only had one child but if I can remember correctly, I think I did not feel her kick until I was 5 months pregnant, well not substantial enough to call a kick anyway. If the doctor says the baby is doing well don't worry about it but I would definitely mention it next visit. Good luck, I wish you a safe and healthy pregnancy.

I remember the first time I felt my daughter move was when I was watching the mobie "War of the Worlds" and the surround sound was on and a building fell and it was really loud and I actually felt her jump. That was 15 weeks. I could feel her kicking abd movving around at 16 weeks, but for some women, it takes until almost 20 weeks. Dont worry, I'm sure everything is fine.. and like others said-- maybe you have a sleeper =)

I don't remember really feeling my daughter kick until around 20 weeks. I thought I felt a few flutters before then but didn't know for sure if it was her or not since it was my first pregnancy. Man talking about those first little kicks gives me baby fever again lol. Such sweet moments!
