  • I didn't feel my first son move at all until 24 weeks. I didn't feel my second one until around 22-23 weeks.

  • The 3rd trimester. You also should not be worried by slowed movements, just MAJOR changes in movements. Because in the third trimester the baby moves all over, then quickly runs out of room. lol Or if you have cramping, bleeding, painful persistent vomiting, pain, swelling, fainting or dizziness ect. At 16 weeks, most of us dont"look pregnant" lol so count your blessings when youre huge you'll miss these days!

  • With my first pregnancy, I didn't feel movement till I fell....I think she was asleep and then I woke her lol In the last trimester, it was like a floor show: I sat watching her move like she was doing aerobics! At one point I could actually feel her foot on the inside against my belly, when I touched on the outside.

  • You are fine. I never felt my second child. You are early its when your 8 1/2 months they ask you. Go see your ob next week but I am sure all will turn out fine Best of luck and congrats

  • If baby turns around facing your back, you might not be able to feel movements and if he's behind the placenta that can stop you feeling the movements.
