  • you're too early to feel regular movement...movement isnt really monitored by the mom until 27 weeks so, thats where u here about counting kicks and such

    some women dont feel their baby move for quite a while so I wouldnt be worried, but u can ask ur doc at ur appt to check because t worries u that u dont notice anything.,.the doc will put ur mind at ease and might do a sonogram or check its heart rate for u

  • Usually it's around 20 weeks when you feel movement. So relax and be patient. Soon enough you will feel it. :)

  • My sister didn't feel any movement with her daughter. Some do and some don't.

  • PP hit the nail on the head- most woman don't have regular movement until 27 weeks or so- than you will see a pattern for his or her playtime-
    19 weeks is early, and if your a bigger gal, you may not feel movement until after 24 weeks. I felt mine move at 22 weeks, sometimes he would go days with out moving, around 26 or 27 weeks I felt him everday.
    Your baby is still a peanut, some mothers will say they felt theres at 12 weeks or 16 weeks, well IMO- NO ONE feels a baby at 12 weeks, its gas, and 16 weeks is early, but it CAN happen for second time moms who know what there feeling for.
    Good luck, your baby is fine!!!
