  • Have you gone to the Dr. yet? I would make an appointment to see a dr just to make sure everything is ok.

  • I have a friend who didn't feel her baby move until week 28. She was a bit heavy in the tummy area and the placenta was towards the front, which kept her from feeling the baby move. So try not to worry. I am pretty sure I read that women feel their babies move around week 24 usually, so that is still a couple of weeks away.

  • That's not common as far as I've experienced.
    Talk to your OB.

  • I don't think I felt either of my kids until around 23 or 24 wks and I'm not overweight at all.

  • If it's your first baby, that's not at all unusual.
