This all depends. Some women may feel this at 22-25 weeks, others may feel it earlier on. If it's your first pregnancy chances are you will feel it a little later, as you won't recognise the movements (they feel like gas bubles at first). A woman in her 2nd pregnancy may feel the kicking a little earlier, as they recognise the movements. I think that it also depends on the woman's physique. A smaller woman will most likely feel the movements sooner than a larger woman would. I hope this helps..

My first it was around 20 weeks. With my 2nd, it was at 15 weeks. Every person and every pregnancy is different. It also depends on where the placenta is located.. for example, if the placenta is toward your back, you'll probably feel kicks earlier because the placenta isn't there to cushion them.

I felt the flutters of both my daughters at around 13 weeks. But, a lot of people don't feel them until 20 weeks or later. It really depends on your body type, and where your uterus is positioned. If the uterus is tipped back, it would probably take longer to feel a kick. Smaller women tend to feel kicks earlier.

Everybody is different and it is easy to mistake what we feel, considering when we're pregnant everything is gas to us LOL. If its your first, obviously its going to take a little longer like 20-22 weeks is still normal. After that each pregnancy seems sooner because you know what you're feeling for. But those little flutters you feel are probably you're baby floating along. I know my children were all active after my morning coffee, whether it was the caffeine (which in strict doses is okay) or just their routine, which my doctor told me really starts around 28 weeks or so. Good luck with your pregnancy

it depends...but if it's your first sometimes you won't feel it until around 20 weeks, but many people can feel it earlier..i felt mine for the first time around 15 weeks - i mistook it for gas rolling around in there at first before i realized what it really was
