I always felt my kids move early but it didn't really get consistent till around 22 weeks. If you are worried, can you call instead of driving down there?

If the baby is in a different position, you'll more than likely not feel the baby move. I wouldn't worry too much about it... until 26-27 weeks with this one I didn't feel him move very much.

they normally tell you to drink something sugary and lay on your side and within an hour the baby should kick.

its normal to feel it move a couple times earlier than before with subsequent pregnancies but it shouldn't be consistent until between 17-22 weeks. done talked to my doctor about it cause I had the same problem.

I am 21 weeks with my first child and have yet to feel anything. I was told at my last ultrasound that I had an anterior placenta and that could contribute to me not feeling anything but I am still worried sick
