  • Every baby and pregnancy is different. I'm pregnant with my second and this one is a girl, she is much more gentle than my son and took me much longer to feel her. Also it is possible that you may have an anterior placenta which may be making it more difficult to feel the movement. It is not bad, just the placenta is to the front of the uterus so if that is the case for you, until baby gets bigger you won't feel him/her.

  • Every pregnancy is different. I would say the baby is in a position where you can't feel her or it could be where the placenta is placed. I would call your ob or midwife to be on the safe side.

  • with my 2nd pregnancy the baby hardly ever moved, she just laid there and oddly enough she is my loudest most energetic kid
