  • i'm 20 weeks and have been kinda freaked out because i don't feel the baby move all that much. the other day i didn't at all. i guess it depends on placement as well as initial weight. but last night i was up really late watching a movie in bed and he was going nuts... i guess normal is any time before 22 weeks. if you're really concerned, call your ob... they'll tell you whether or not be worried.

  • it depends on the baby. with my first two (boys), they hardly moved at all the whole pregnancy. i mean like maybe 1-2 times a week. they were fine. with my third (girl), she moved constantly. she moved like 7 times in a hour lol. she was fine too. also keep in mind that 21 weeks is still pretty early to be monitoring movement.... so don't worry about that until you're farther along.

  • Well with my 1st I never felt him..This one boy is she a kicker. But since she started kicking she will kick like crazy for a while then go a few days and nothing alotta people tell me its bc shes further into my back or turned around so its harder to feel which I've come to believe bc after a few days I'll feel her again I know they say after 24 wks u should feel them more often and around 28 wks u can start keeping track. I would tell you not to worry but I still worry everytime i go a day without feeling her.
