16 weeks, would u begin to worry?

if you have not yet felt baby kicking or something. I believe I am having the "flutters" but im not positive. more cramping but no spotting. gets so uncomfortable. everyone says that is normal. hmmm.... you would think that this being my second i would just be chill.... but im starting to wonder if something is going on.

  • nope, i didnt feel anything from my son until i was 19 weeks! your placenta is probably anterior, meaning its in the front of your uterus and therefore it pads the kicks

  • Go check it out. A mother usually knows best but I really wouldn't worry. Some babies are just more laid back and dont start kicking until a little later. If your really worried go to the doctor.

  • they say not to worry untill your 18 weeks. A friend of mine never felt her daughter kick the whole pregnancy. I on the other hand felt both mine super super early

  • I felt my son moving at 15 weeks, but they told me that was too early. Sure enough when he started moving harder, I was feeling him in the same place. They say that every pregnancy is different, so you might not even feel the baby move until a little later. I don't remember having cramping around 16 weeks, but it is a good sign you aren't spotting. If you are really worried, maybe you can make an appointment with the doctor to ease your fears.

  • I would wait until at least 20 weeks to worry but that's just me.

    I felt my first baby at 26 weeks and the second at 15.

  • If you have any concerns then seek medical advice, it's better to have peace of mind. Also, some women don't feel baby until as late as 20wks so try not worry. I invested in a fetal heart monitor for my current pregnancy, it really helped to ease my anxiety!
