  • I can't say that I have ever felt any of mine move that early. I would not worry about it yet. That is towards the beginning of the window when people start feeling movement. Keep an eye on it and let your doctor know at your next appointment.

  • With my 2nd DS I didn't even figure out that I was pregnant until I was 26 weeks. They said he was facing my back and so I didn't feel him kicking much. He's now 2 , very healthy and always busy.

  • I'm only preggo with my first, but I didn't really start to feel him move until week 20+
    Give it a few more weeks because you really start to worry.

  • I think every baby is different. Maybe this baby is not as active as your otheres were. But if you really concerned talk to your doctor about it.

  • Every baby is different, they say its easier to feel the babys kicks once you have already gone through a pregnancy, but still not always. And remember its normal to not feel them till 20-22 weeks or so, and the doctor wont find it odd i dont think, or worry about it. But im sure they can do something to reassure you everythings fine =)
