Should I feel my baby moving at 16 weeks?

I am in my 16th week and I don't feel the baby move. I used to feel some flutters but I haven't felt any lately. I've been really sick with a sinus/allergy cold and my baby has had croup and then whooping cough, so I've seriuosly neglected my health just to feel sane.
How much should I feel the baby move?

  • I started feeling my baby move around 15 or 16 weeks, but I didn't start feeling her move regularly until about 20 weeks. It's different for everyone, but like Raeann said, there will be periods you won't feel the baby move and by around 26 weeks, you should feel movement regularly.

  • Not necessarily. I didn't really start to feel movement until about 20 weeks.

  • You will go through periods of times that you don't feel the baby. It is not till 26 weeks you should feel the baby every day.

  • No. After 20-25 yes.

  • thats pretty early to feel the baby, so I wouldnt worry about it, Im sure you will start feeling it a lot pretty soon.

  • I felt my son move at 16 weeks but was told that was on the earlier side. His movements werent really strong until like 22 weeks.

  • Everybody feels their baby move at a different time. I felt my son move at almost 4 months along. I felt my daughter move at 3 months along.
