can't feel the baby

I am 19 weeks along with my second baby. I felt my first baby kick at 17 weeks, and I still haven't felt this one move! I heard that usually, people feel the second one before they felt the first, so I was worried. Has anyone experienced this? Should I be concerned?

  • With my first (a boy) I felt him kick at 18 weeks along. This is my second pregnancy and it's a girl this time I didn't feel her kick until about 22 weeks. And even now at 32 wks 5 days she dosen't move a whole lot. You may just have a really laid back mellow baby in there!

  • I am having the same problem, so at my last visit i talked to my OB,and she said that "each child is different-and it is still early and the baby is small,"  no worries's normal.I must admit thought that other part of me still worry a bit.
