  • How far along are you??If you are not that far along then you may not feel it all the time. Drs tell you to not do kick counts til 30 weeks.

  • No, because your weight doesn't have anything to do with the nerves in your uterus.
    It all depends on how far along you are.

  • I know a few women that were pretty overweight when they got pregnant they had a harder time feeling their baby move than some of my skinnier friends. First babies you wont feel move until further along than if you are having a second third ext child. If your ob apts are going well and there isnt any other issues going on try not to worry- if you're getting really stressed out think about purchasing a home doppler to be able to find the heartbeat at home.

  • Most women with there first don't feel baby till around 19 to 22 weeks. You may have felt flutters but not realizing it is baby. It will be really soon you will start feeling baby.

  • Your weight as well as where the placenta is located will determine how much you actually feel. You really feel it more on the outside than the inside and if the placenta is located toward your belly instead of toward your back, you may not feel it move much at all.
