  • It does work, but it didn't work for me until my third trimester, and still it only works sometimes. Most of the time now that I am farther along. Its probably to early for your baby to see the light (your only 15 weeks) or baby could have been sleeping or positioned wrong to see the light. Just keep trying it and eventually I'm sure it will work. i keep a little flashlight next to my bed and use it alot. Its kind of a game we play. Its amazing once you can actually feel it, so good luck and dont be worried, just keep trying.

  • I think that's early for them to be responding to light. It's also pretty early to be feeling movement if it's your first pregnancy.

  • yes. Don't worry about it. I heard that it's not until the 3rd trimester that that works, and it's just a generalization anyways. I didn't feel my baby move until week 22, and now at week 31 she still doesn't move from the flash light.

  • My 3rd baby was positioned in a difficult spot, so whenever I wanted to feel her move, I put headphones on my belly & played classical music. Worked like a charm!
