how do I know what I am feeling is my baby kicking me? I am currently 19 weeks pregnant with my first and being a teen mum (19) am very interested in my pregnancy....


Hi Ebony,

Thank you for your enquiry. It is a very exciting time waiting for those first movements. It is most common to start to feel movements with your first baby at around 20 weeks. They first feel like little “flutters” before they become more defined as movements. You are most likely to notice them at a time when you are quiet and perhaps after a meal. If you are busy working all day then you don’t tend to notice them. You are more likely to feel them on the inside as the baby is very well protected to be able to feel anything on the outside as yet.

Best wishes,
