How much movement at 18 weeks

I have been feeling sporadic pokes and bubbles popping since 16 weeks. This is my first and I'm quite thin. Yesterday, I felt a lot of pokes and bubbles popping. How often should I feel this? Is it normal to go days without feeling anything?

  • I felt a lot at that point with my current pregnancy (5th), but with my first, not until after 20 weeks.

  • Tthats normal. You will start to feel more frequent movement between 20-24 weeks.

  • at 18 weeks, you should be excited about the movements! however, for me, i could only feel him move around midnight and it was usually like every 3 days.. so i would go several without feeling anything. don't worry... once baby gets a little bigger you'll be missing the days where they gave you random flutters and not kicks in the rib ALLLLLL DAY LONG!! lol
