  • my sister n law didnt feel her son's heartbeat til she was 7 months pregnant. we got pregnant at the same time. and she was always worried because my baby was kicking by 3 months n hers wasnt. n even when he started moving, they were really light movements. but now theyre both 1 and a half and always running around n screaming, just the same. dont be worried. maybe it has something to do with the placenta wall??? i really have no clue. just chill, nothings wrong i bet,
