  • You don't have anything to worry about! Many women don't feel movement until at least 18 weeks, sometimes up to 20, even with later pregnancies. Try not to stress out yet! As long as your OB/midwife is getting a heartbeat at your appointments, I wouldn't stress. =)

  • I only felt my son move once in my second pregnancy when with my daughter she moved 24/7 so much that you could see my entire belly shift and little bones moving about in there. Hard to say hon....

  • Also, you won't feel REGULAR movements (movements all the time) until at least 25 weeks, so feeling occasional movements like you are is normal. =)

  • Most woman dont feel their baby move until weeks 18-22. I just recently started feeling mine 2 weeks ago and I am 19wks 2days. Every pregnancy is different. But not feeling it right now is completely normal!

  • I started feeling flutters/movements at about 17 weeks and this is my first pregnancy. I'm now almost 28 weeks and some days he moves all day long, some days he doesn't hardly move. I think it all depends on the baby :)
