I'm only 16 weeks and 4 days and i started feeling the baby moving on Thanksgiving. I've felt little flicks, twitches, and what feels like a finger running across just below my belly button almost every day.... but today is nothing that I've noticed. It's normally more at night that i feel these things.... it's now 10:41pm and still nothing. should i be worried or is it normal not to feel it every day in the beginning?

That's normal, you're not meant to start the kick count until 28 weeks.

well i weight 245... gained 5 pounds. and i started feeling them at exactly 16 weeks. maybe even before that. for a while i thought my mind was playing tricks on me. but these aren't just little gas bubbles or anything. i know that for sure now.

Depends, I'm big and I felt this baby at 13 weeks, and I'm much bigger than I was with my first, I didn't feel her until 21 weeks.
