Woman with small frame and thin structure may feel the movement little earlier, compared to woman with larger frame and obesity. The feeling which is experienced by the kicks of the baby is like a light tapping. As the pregnancy progresses the movements will increase and experienced as firm kicks.

    I am five and a half months pregnant and this is my first baby. I feel the kicks here and there. I just want to know if this is normal and do I have to feel these kicks really often?
