  • is this your first baby? sometimes with first children its difficult to feel or distinguish the baby's movements bc you have never experienced it before. as long as the doctor's are telling you everything is fine i wouldn't worry.

  • Ummm.. are you on the larger side? (not to be rude) I was told that since I was heavier when I was pregnant It might take longer to feel my daughter move. I was around 19-20 weeks. Have you tried laying on your side or drinking or eating somthing sweet and cold?

  • if your overweight and/or this is your first pregnancy it may take a little longer to feel your baby move and you may need to concentrate more on feeling it. I had the same problem with my first, I barely felt her move at all. if the dr tells you everything is fine then he's probably right. you should be going for an ultrasound soon so you will get to see for yourself. ask your dr at your next appointment.
