FAQ #1





How will I know when the baby is kicking? What does it feel like, and when will I feel it?</p>

This question is one of the most often asked in pregnant.
Many who are first timers get anxious about when they should feel their baby kicking. Most of us worry over this at some stage in early pregnancy, but usually there is nothing to worry about! The average time for you to feel the baby during your first pregnancy is at around 18 - 22 weeks, but this is just an average. Some people feel it much earlier, and some a bit later. You may even feel something at around 14 - 16 weeks, but don't be anxious if you haven't felt anything by then.

It can feel like anything from gas bubbles popping, to fluttering, or a feeling of a fish "swimming" around in your belly, or even a very light tapping on your insides. Everyone describes the feeling as something different, so it's hard to know what you will feel! Many women pregnant for the first time don't recognize the movements straight away, that's why subsequent pregnancies can be felt much earlier.
