I was ten weeks, but I know what to feel for. Your placenta may be in a spot where it keeps you from feeling lo. I wouldn't worry. I know that won't keep you from doing so though! Good luck momma :D

I was 25 almost 26 weeks. I was in the bath when I watched her roll and stick her butt out. I took baths just to see her move.

I felt a few flutters around 18-19 weeks but I did not feel him really kick me until 23 weeks. I was worried too so I asked my doctor and he said after doing an ultrasound that it was because my placenta was in the front blocking most of his movement until he got bigger!

When I knew they were kicks was about 21/22 weeks. It was around the time I had my gender scan :)



I think I got flutters around week 18

my midwife said she didn't feel anything until 20 weeks. so i think you're fine. i started feeling things on thanksgiving. it felt like someone was running their finger across on the inside of my belly. so weeeird. don't worry though. i'm sure it'll be kicking away soon and you'll be losing sleep over it hehe.

you may also not feel anything cause you are asleep. i heard that babies are most active at night once you stop moving. lol it's like putting a baby in the car and they sleep until you get to a stop light :P

with my first daughter i NEVER felt her move. not even later during my pregnancy. i had an anterior placenta, and i was one of the unlucky ones. but this baby, (i have an anterior placenta again) and i felt her move starting at 21 weeks.
