I am currently 19 wks and 1 day I can't feel my baby move. I have seen pics of other girls that are 19 wks their bellies are noticeable. To me mine isn't. I went to the er about 2wks ago for a uti and the baby was fine and very active. Am I just worrying to much. I do have dr appointment tomorrow.

Is this your first? Very common to not feel the baby for a while for your first. You probably are feeling it and don't realize it. Are you overweight? That doesn't help either. Try not to worry, I know its hard but you'll start feeling it soon.

I am a little over weight and I knew it would take me longer to show. I have an appointment tomorrow and they are doing a gener scan.

i didnt start looking even remotely pregnant until at least 25 weeks and everyone around me was popping out their bellies really early and im still not big at all for almost 33 weeks and have anterior placenta so movements arent always that noticeable. you could have the same thing. i wouldnt worry about it. and be lucky you arent as big or noticeable as everyone else, quicker bounce back, or at least thats what i tell myself when i feel like im not getting a full pregnancy experience with the big beautiful belly.haha :)

Your weight, uterus, and placenta have a lot to do with it. I started to feel mine at 16 weeks. I am 22 weeks now and can see her move from the outside now. I am thin though and my doctor told me that it make a huge difference.

Location of the baby has a lot to do with not being able to feel it. And don't worry about not showing, With my first I didn't start showing at all til I was about 30 weeks, and by the time I delivered I only looked like i was about 20 weeks.

In my case, I felt my baby move at about 15 weeks. She's quite active. But I'm very tiny for my size considering I'm 20 weeks already. I've got a tiny bump that looks like I just ate a huge meal.
My cousin is 19 weeks & she & I talk all the time but she still hasn't felt hers move. It's all about you, though. Your weight. Your baby. Baby could be moving & you could just be passing it off as gas.
