  • nothing,its probably attached on the back wall. You may not feel it as much until its gets much bigger

  • might be nothing. 18 wks is still early to be feeling much more than the occasional movement. Plus, if baby is turned toward your back, you won't likely feel the movement at all. If you're concerned, call your pedi and ask, but it's prolly nothing. I'm 19 wks and have only felt the baby a few times. GL!

  • Not all babies are equal, they do not move the same. I agree with BisketLiss see your OB if you continue to worry

  • Like the PP's said, baby could be facing your back or your placenta may be on your belly. I hardly ever felt my 3rd pregnancy due to his placenta being against my belly. If you do have any concerns though, do talk to your dr. If anything, you may want to invest in a home dopplar. I have a friend how has one and LOVES it! Totally worth every penny!

  • If you're only 18 weeks you might not feel the baby move for even another couple of weeks! I know it sucks! But some women don't feel their baby move at all until 24-25 weeks! At 18 weeks all I felt were a couple flutters and ONE definite kick.

  • Don't worry! I barely felt my first move and was put on a monitor at almost every 3rd trimester visit...she was born healthy and beautiful! My second is a gymnast, however. I felt flutters around 16 weeks and now at 24 weeks it's definite kicks/punches!
