  • It could be that you are feeling the movement and haven't realised, it can feel like wind bubbles, or it could just be that you're not sensitive to it yet. I wouldn't worry if the er told you that the baby's okay, unless you really are sure something is wrong, since I'm sure you will soon. Relax, if you stop waiting for it as such then it might happen. Good Luck with the rest of your pregnancy.

  • With my first I didn't feel anything until 25 weeks. I felt it sooner with my second, just because I think I knew what it felt like that time around.

  • My husbands brother hardly ever moved around. He was a lazy baby. My mother in law said that he always made her worried, but he turned out just fine. if you are really really worried you can always call your doctor. I was always told to eat a nice big mean then go and lay down on my said, and that should kick start the movement.

  • Is this your first baby?

  • Very very thin women feel movement earliest and women who have extra weight feel movement much later. I don't know you and I'm not judging, but if you have some extra weight you will have more difficulty feeling the baby at this time and the more overweight you are the longer it takes. I have even hear about obese women that "never knew" they were pregnant until they went into labor. Crazy but true! Just hang on until Tuesday, get your ultrasound and you will see your little one in there moving all around on you.
