Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Any time between 18 and 22 weeks is normal for first time moms. A lot of it depends on how your placenta is positioned. If it is anterior, it will be on your belly side, which often makes feeling movements more difficult. If it is posterior, it will be on your back side, and that can make it easier to feel movements if they are going toward your belly.
