For all my 20 week mommas Julie&Collin+1 Due February 4; 1 child; Michigan 3612 posts17th Sep
I can feel little man move and kick but there are hours sometimes that go by where I don't feel anything, and I will push and poke at him and nothing....I feel like he should be moving way more then he does, and I can't feel it from the outside yet because he doesn't move long enough for me to put my hand there!:( I dunno maybe he is just super laid back and calm, its just a difference from my Son starting around 20 weeks he would try to tear me apart from the inside lol, anyways I want to know about your babies movement right now and how often and how noticable it is

At 20 weeks I felt nothing at all. I was super worried because I felt all my other kids at or before 18 weeks.Then at 22 weeks I started feeling her move. Now at 27 weeks I can feel an see it from the outside. Every pregnancy is different.

Normal! My Ob says to not do kick counts until 24 weeks plus the baby is still pretty small and has plenty of room :)

Movements usually arent consistent until around 24 weeks and even then you can go hours without feeling anything. A lot of women don't even feel much movement at 24 weeks that's why kick counts aren't done until 26-28 weeks.

Well I'm 21 weeks but I know just how you are feeling. I hate it. My little guy is super active and has been from very early on. Even at the anatomy scan he was moving constantly and the tech had to chase him everywhere. So when I went three days straight without movement, I freaked out and called my OB. But sadly she brushed it off and just said that they don't worry about going days without movement till 24 weeks. It still scares the crap out of me though and I'm just glad that I feel him moving mostly through out the day again.

Thank you guys so much what you have said has really helped, I don't want to rush angry In this pregnancy seeing as it will most likely be my last one so I'm trying to savor and cherish every moment and movement Its been 5 year since my last pregnancy so you forget what's normal and what isn't:)

Dont worry. I felt my first 2 at about 18 weeks so I was super worried at 22 weeks and I went in to see my OB and all you could hear on the fetal monitor was my baby moving around like crazy but I couldnt feel a thing! I thought It was strange because I felt him move so much at 20 weeks why not now? My OB said there are sensitive areas where you can feel your baby move more than Other at this stage in pregnancy and to not start kick counting until after 28 weeks.
