If you are overweight or your placenta is placed in front of your uterus, it may take even longer to be able to experience movement from the outside. A general idea is that your baby should be noticeably moving any time between weeks 20 and 30. This may happen sooner for some mums, but that is not common. At first it will feel like little taps instead of the more powerful kicks and punches that will happen later in pregnancy.
The closer you get to the end of your pregnancy, the more others will be able to feel as your baby’s movements become more prominent and frequent. Early on you will have to work hard to get your partner to be quick as once you feel the movement there is no guarantee there will be more in succession for dad.
