Anyone feeling baby move around?

This is my first pregnancy so most people said I wouldn't be able to feel baby until like 20 weeks....at about 16 weeks I drank some ice cold orange juice and felt a distinct kick.....at 17 weeks my husband put his face against my tummy when I was laying on my side and got a kick in the cheek that he clearly felt, and I'm about 21 weeks now and she will just not stop! She kicks me in the front, and sometimes in the bladder and cervix (they spasm when she does!) rolls around, and lately has been hiccuping....my whole tummy twitches when she does that!

Mine seems to react to chocolate, spicy food, and the car radio on pop music. Sometimes if I sing I get some kicks too...not sure if that is her enjoying it or telling me to shut up....

I felt my first at about 5 months, so that sounds normal to me! This is my second and I felt him about a month sooner. Everything happened about a month sooner lol.

It must be great to be able to feel ur baby's response to your voice when you talk to her. I occasionally talk to my baby but he'll just carry on about his business until he's ready to make his presences known; that's when he'll make his signature kicks and shake up his momma's tummy lol. I can't wait for him to get bigger and stronger.

26 weeks and still going strong and getting bigger! Occasionally there's a day when she doesn't move much, and I get worried, so I talk to her and ask her what she's doing, ask if she's tired, etc. and I get a lazy kick in response!

This is my first pregnancy, I'm 26 weeks pregnant now and my baby boy likes to kick all the time! I first felt him kick around 15 weeks and loved it, now I watch him kick my tummy and I see him moving around in there it's so amazing! :)

Jessica - I feel the same way about time....it seemed like I was 19 weeks FOREVER...then woke up one morning and was 25 weeks, just like that. She moves all the time...rolls and fidgets (luckily gently right now), day and night, and started around 20 weeks.

This is my sixth pregnancy (fifth living, 1 miscarriage) and I started feeling flutters around 13 wks, then at about 15 wks the strong kicks started "kicking in" and now at 24 wks, little one is damn near kicking my ribs..it's amazing how fast they grow. Time seems to be going fast, slowing down, going fast slowing down, lol...no consistency!

This is my first pregnancy and I started feeling flutters at 15 weeks. I am now 24 wks, 5 days and get very distinguished kicks, punches and rolls all the time. You can watch my tummy move and my hubby and stepdaughter feel him move all the time. I think my little boy is going to be a fighter the way he moves around so much lol

I've been feeling movements since 14 weeks also. With my first I had an anterior placenta and didn't feel him until 22 weeks. Amazing how different each pregnancy is!

I am 23 weeks pregnant with my second child and I have felt him (yes a boy!) moving since 14 weeks! He is very active! I dont remember my daughter (now 5) moving that early for sure, they say that you do notice the kicks earlier on during your second pregnancy. As much as I love to feel him move, sometimes I wish he'd stop so much he really does boot quite hard sometimes!!
