  • I think that it is pretty normal! You should feel lucky that you have been able to expierence your baby moving in you at such an early stage!! I don't think that at this stage you will feel the baby moving a lot, just because he/she is very small still... and has a lot of room to "play" around inside your belly!! If your very concerend I would just call and speak to a nurse at your doctors office!! Good luck

  • You are still early in the pregnancy, so I wouldn't worry too much. Feeling movement about that gestational age can be pretty's when you start getting into the 20's weeks that you should feel regular movement. I hope this answer helps!

  • I think at this point the movement is so light that you could of just missed it or maybe he/she is moving more while you're asleep. It wouldn't hurt to call the doctor tho.

  • its normal and no you shouldn't be worried. the baby is just now starting to move and it'll get more frequent as your pregnancy progresses

  • I believe being 16 weeks pregnant and not feeling the baby move around too much is very normal. It's still very early and the baby is very small, so I wouldn't worry. :)

  • I didn't even start feeling little kicks until 16 weeks with my second and it was 21 weeks before I could feel kicks even with my toddler playing with me. It is very normal, because the baby is sooo small.
