  • When i started feeling the baby it was about 17 weeks or a little before that, being so small at that age your baby is harder to feel especially if it is your first pregnancy. I am now 21 weeks and the babies kicks are more noticable to me so it might take a while. He/she doesn't have a pattern yet to when they wake or move around so somedays you might not feel him others you do. Im not sure about the abdomen pain i had the same thing and it was horrible they told me it was liagements stretching and Braxton hicks contractions so that i can't help you on. I had diarrhia when i was that far along to. Just drink plenty of fluids so you don't get dehydrated.

  • Why don't you have a nice snack and drink and lay down in a quiet room on your left side. Keep the room nice and dark but try not to doze.

    Now, I want you to count the baby's movements in the next hour. If you get a couple, you're fine. The baby is still a tiny little thing and there is plenty of room for him to bounce around without you feeling him
    You are also probably dehydrated, from the diarrhea, which can cause a lot of killer pain in pregnancy, Grab some gatorade and make sure you have enough to drink.
    If this hasn't eased your mind at all, Call your doc. You are paying her!
