  • No not at all. Not until around 24-26 weeks will your doctor want you to somewhat monitor your baby's movements and notify him/her if there are any changes...i.e. he/she is moving less or more. I am 21 weeks and some days my baby boy moves around like crazy and some days hardly at all. They are still so small at this time that some movements might be so light that you cannot feel them, or they are moving inward and not outward towards your uterus. Congrats on feeling movement! Its great! :)
