I didnt feel baby a ton right when he first started kicking. When you get farther along and he is bigger, you should feel him much more. If it is a really noticeable decrease, you may want to call the dr just to be sure. But if you just havent felt him much at all yet, then it's probably fine and you will soon
I never started feeling baby consistently until around 24 weeks with my first.
i am 25 weeks, i feel my little girl mostly in the morning after breakfast and at night when i lay in bed, she moves ALOT!! i didnt have steady movement until about a week ago, it is so exciting to feel (and see) her move.
You don't really start feeling your baby until after 21 weeks with your first child. You may feel movements earlier on in the pregnancy after you have had more than once child. So don't think something is wrong or anything just because you're not feeling the baby move. It's normal. :-)
Oh, and if you want to feel the baby move around more, try drinking orange juice. Usually if you want a 3d ultrasound done, they will tell you to drink something like orange juice to get the baby moving around due to the acid.
None yet, I'm only 9w4d.
Well, this is my first and I started feeling her consistently from about 16 weeks. I do have a posterior placenta though, which makes it a lot easier to feel. I've heard it's normal not to really feel it consistently with your first until 20-22 weeks, I just got lucky and have a body/placenta type that helped me feel them.
I started feeling flutters around 16 weeks but they were few and far between. I'm almost 28 weeks now and she moves a lot.
