i'm not sure if i'm feeling the baby move?

I'm 18 weeks along and I'm not sure what a flutter is supposed to feel like? I get so worried, but both times I've seen my ultrasounds, they tell me I have a very active baby. What does it feel like and will it be different times for everyone? I have a small frame and weighed 109 lbs to start. I'm growing everyday or so it seems. Why don't I feel baby and what should I be feeling?

  • I never felt my son until about 25 weeks. Depending on the placement of your placenta, it could make it more difficult to feel your baby.

  • Give it another couple of weeks! At 18 weeks, baby is still very small, and depending how it's kicking and moving, you just may not feel him/her yet.
