Post subject: 18 weeks movement?
I am 18 weeks pregnant with not a huge bump, and i am not sure if i have felt my baby yet, i keep getting these really wierd sensations almost like popping or fluttering in my bump and wondered if someone could tell me if this is the baby.
i'd really like to know for sure, also when will i definately know that it is the baby

Everyone IS different - and it depends if this is your first pregnancy or not aswell.
First time mothers usually feel their first kicks 18-20 weeks, sometimes earlier sometimes later, it can feel like a fluttering for you.
Second, third fourth etc.. mummy's can feel movments from 13 weeks onwards!
Many women can however think they felt a kick when indeed it was just wind
So you have to think carefully about what you felt etc..
Being a third time mum this time around i felt movment from 13 weeks 4 days, although at this gestation no one can be sure it was baby, they just presume given the way i described the movment (like butterfly's)
I wish you the very best with your scan - and enjoy it

Thank you for your comments its so nice to hear of other peoples experiences,
this is my first baby so im not too worried as some women dont feel till 22 weeks.
these fluttering feelings are quite nice though they make me smile like tickling from the inside so i do think that it probably isnt gas as i tend to feel them most when i lay down at night time.
joliver - we are like nearly the exact same date! i am due on the 22nd August! Are you planning on finding out the baby's sex?

Catherine - yeah we wana find out
one of the main reasons is that we go to New York in 4 weeks and we wana buy a lot of stuff out there - i bet now what we want to know we wont be able to find out
we guna get a 3d scan done but not til we get back - that will defo tell us
Cant wait - i seem to have gone massive over the weekend - its proper mad - i cant wait

Will do Catherine
cant wait keep counting down the weeks til i leave work - 15 weeks to go - not that im obsessed or anything and 3 weeks sat til New York - cant wait
we booked new york before we found out we were preggers and its happened at the right time to go according to the mid wife - just hope i wont be too tired - but then again i wont be in work which i think is making me really tired at the min
