  • You are ok. Give it time, and breathe... Not every pregnancy is the SAME.

  • If it is your first pregnancy, its totally normal not to feel anything until you are like 22 weeks ish. It just feels like little flutters, or someone flicking you from the inside. Many people mistake it for gas bubblies. :)

  • if you have an anterior placenta you might not feel anything for another little while, my sister was having the same problem, but now that she's a few more weeks along she's starting to feel them. Don't worry! Your little guys are probably just fine! Your visit is coming really soon, so just try to breathe deep until you get to go.
