When I was pregnant, I felt movement around the 16 week mark, but only when i was lying still, it feels to delicate it take a while to realise what it is. it feels a bit like butterflies.
my H was able to feel the kicks from around twenty weeks by 30 weeks the kicks can hurt (in a completely lovely way!)

I didnt feel anything til 20 weeks, felt like popping candy! I found out at my 20 week scan that I had an anterior placenta (at the front) so this muffles movement a bit. You may feel it earlier if your placenta is posterior (most common).

I had an anterior placenta last time (and this time too), I first felt the butterfly movements at around 16ish weeks I'd say. My mw last time said something along the lines of, it feels like wind but if you're having to question if that's you, then it's likely to be baby! I liked her thinking so went with that.

I first felt baby at around 22 weeks which was quite late but I had an anterior placenta too and was warned that it might mean I felt baby later than others would.

I felt it about 17 weeks first time round, it was like a mini swoop - the kind you get when you are in a lift, but much less obvious. I was sitting quietly at my desk, not doing anything so if I'd been busy I doubt I'd have felt it. It was another week or so before I felt it again though.
This time round I have an anterior placenta too and although I felt it around the same time, it sometimes feels more muffled and I definitely don't notice it as much.

I'm 21 + 2 with an anterior placenta, and have been feeling very small 'flicks' since about 18 weeks but few and far between.
