I'm 20 wks today with 1st baby... haven't really felt any consistent movement... usually when my hubby pokes or talks to my belly and that's it... should I be worried, is it just too early, is my baby lazy (haha)? What do you think?

  • it's too early to worry about that stuff, and some babies don't move alot anyhow (my first two would move maybe 5 times a day if they were feeling energetic lol)

  • my baby only moves at night when i'm trying to sleep. the rest of the time she's sound asleep. just relax.

  • as long as you feel him or her every once in a while at this point it's fine. you will start noticing it more and more.

  • it depends on your size and the placement of the placenta, with my 1st i was very thin and could feel her early, i woulndt worry about movenet untill a little later!

  • I read that when you're thin (weight) you feel more than when you're heavier. Also, when it's the first you misread the squirming of your baby for gas or cramps. My cousin was about 40lbs overweight with her third and she felt him kicking by 14weeks! (she had three pregnancies back-2-back-2-back)

  • 20 weeks is still pretty early... due to my own personal "cycle" issues I didn't realize I was even preggo until I was 18 weeks, so I didn't feel a thing until a few weeks after that... things will probably start picking up shortly, and then when you're trying to go to sleep you'll wish baby was being lazy again, lol
