im 19 weeks n a couple days and i began to feel flutters @ 14 weeks... But since 16 weeks i can rarely feel him move.. I kno hes ok we did a sono last week that told me hes a he =O) but i could have sworn i felt my girls move sooner than this while i was preggo w/ them. Its starting to scare me a bit that i dont feel him... Tha flutters were stronger.. I dunno i could jus b paranoid...

i didn't feel mine strong until like, 16-17 wks.
but they say if you've been pregnant before you can feel them earlier & better but ive heard different from everyone.!

good luck:)

I didn't feel nicholas move on a regular basis until i was about 25wks. If you're a bit larger it can make it more difficult to feel anything

I really think it depends on where your placenta is also.... with all 3 of my boys I felt lots of movements by 15-16 wks this time I only felt a few flutters and then just this past week or so I have been feeling her more often. My placenta is in the front wall so it makes it harder to feel the movements until they get bigger. Did you ask where yours was.

ive never had a child before but im 30 weeks pregz at the moment
and i only started feeling my boy move at 19 weeks only little flutters but im now 30 weeks .. i could realy feel him boot me about 26 weeks i suffer from paranoier and sumtimes i dont feel my boy move for about 3-4 days it sucks cos you think sumthngs rong . but it realy depends on the size of you and where the placenter is .. try and move your tummy around by pressing on the out side of your belly and gently press up againsed him if you cant feel him move its always worked for me or drink a cold glass of water and have sumthing to eat and laydown on your side and you should feel 5-10 flutter or kicks within an hour (true fact) its worked for me ! if that doesnt help sweetie then call your midwife or duilivery suite

With my son I felt him about 20wks... so with this pregnancy I didnt feel her till I was 24wks I wanna say. I was nervous since I've always heard ppl feel they're baby early on especially after already having 1 pregnancy. I would say though that since you are feel you LO that I dont think anythings wrong. You could just have alot more fluid around the baby. I'm 28+5, I have frontal placenta that makes it hard to feel her, and have alot of fluid around her. Good luck, still think your lucky!

i wouldn't stress too much about it. it's amazing how deep your body really is, and the places they can hide. It also makes a difference where your placenta is. i was able to start feeling flutters at about 10weeks with my second pregnancy. it has a lot to do with the location of my placenta. Mine is in the back, up at the top. i have a friend who is due the same week i am, and she has a hard time feeling her baby. her placenta is on the front of her uterus, so it dampens the feeling of movements. when i was pregnant with my oldest, i could tap my stomach and she would respond. with my youngest, tapping - doesnt work. i have to lay on my stomach to tick her off enough to roll around. their personalities are like night and day. you could just have a little lazy butt who would rather sleep than squirm lol. you can always call and ask your drs office for a nurse visit to listen to the baby's heart beat. the more you stress, the less the baby will move, so just relax and enjoy :D

I am 18weeks 5days and only sometimes I feel flutters. I started to feel them after I read a post about eating cold stuff like Popsicles and laying half-way on my back. I really can't wait to feel LO stronger so SO can feel too. But you should try eating a few Popsicles lol.
Oh and btw I have a low lying placenta, would have make a difference on how much I feel movement?
