Post subject: First movements
Hi this is mine and my partners first pregnacy and she is now at 19 weeks but shes getting worried because she hasnt yet felt the baby kick, a few weeks back she was sure she felt something when we were away in lanazrote and she sure it was the baby, she described it as a fluttering one miniute it were there then next it was gone, but that was 4 weeks ago and all she wants now is to feel the baby, shes over weight at just short of 19 stone is her weight a factor of why she hasnt really felt anything yet?

Iv been at my midwife today and i told her some days i can feel baby move and sometimes nothing and she advised me thats normal.
I was reading up 2day and it says you feel the baby by about 17 weeks if its your second baby or if your realy slim so they weight could be why she hasnt felt anything yet.
Im 17 weeks and its just fluttering at the min like little butterflys
Hope this helps.

weight can be an issue - I'm 15 stone and it definitely means that its harder to hear and feel externally.
I had the fluttering feeling and was also unsure about what is was - the midwife wasn't sure either, but my sister in law told me that it was most likely baby's first kicks - he's like butterflies in your tummy at first!
give it a bit more time. I think the first really strong movements for me started at about 22 weeks - I'm now 28 weeks and can actually see my skin moving and stretching as he flumps around in there! Nothing to worry about - she will feel your baby in there sooon enough

sounds like baby movements to me
I'd say it felt like fizzing more than anything, with a slight scratchiness. Kind of how I'd imagine a packet of refreshers in the bottom of your tummy would feel Or like sherbert feels on your tongue.
But that's just me - I guess they are probably different for everyone!! If your tickly scrathy feel is low down, where period pains would have been before - then my guess is yes it's baby movements
