Hello
    I am new to this site and cant find anything to tell me when i will recognize the first kick, and it seems such a long wait!
    Can anybody reassure me please.

Different for everyone!! Dependant on position of baby mainly. I was about 18 weeks preg and it felt like a butterfly inside me or wind!!!

    Thanks for replying so quickly, I am 17 weeks and 1 day today but not counting ha! ha!
    I have had IVF and hoping that when the baby kicks I can relax a bit more.

I didn't feel a single kick until 22 weeks with Jack, but felt it really early on with Ben (probably knew what to look for) at about 14 weeks. 

To me it initially felt like when you get a twitchy thigh muscle, or a twitchy eye.  Some people say it's a bit like a fish flapping out of water. 

Also, initially you won't feel kickes every single day either, so don't worry if you feel something one day and then nothing for several days.

Enjoy!
