  • Yes!! Some women don't feel the first movements until closer to 20 weeks!! I think the average is about 18. Try to be patient!! :)

  • I think everything is just fine. That is really early to start to feel the baby moving.

  • Its ok. Sometimes the baby is just not as active. They tend to be calm babies once born too that are easy-going. Try eating something sweet like a carmel r example and then lay down and be still. Babies move more when you are still and they've had sugar. They sleep mostly when you move. Like rocking them to sleep.

  • Im sure its fine but if you worry then talk to your doctor about getting you the proper paper work for a home fetal heart doppler for piece of mind then you can listen to your baby whenever u want I have 1 and love it

  • It is very rare to be able to feel your baby move before 18 weeks. I didn't feel my son until I was almost 19 weeks and it was only because he had the hiccups. Not until you are at least 25 weeks do you need to worry if you aren't feeling any movement.
