when should i feel my baby kicking?

I first felt the butterfly movement around 14 weeks, but it wasn't something that was constant. I'd feel that same movement probably once a week, if that. I was about 22 - 23 weeks when I started feeling her regularly. I'm 29 weeks now and I feel her all the time. :)

Congratulations on your little one!!!

I was probably around 18 or 19 weeks when I started feeling my son kick. It just depends on how big they are sometimes. Like some women don't feel their babies kick until a little after the 22 week mark, but that could be b/c their baby is smaller than average so they can't really feel them until a little later. As long as your OB can hear a heartbeat and the U/S Tech can detect a heartbeat and movement, your baby is fine. Congratulations on your baby!!!
