Is such a wonderful thing, but can also be stressful.

I'm 20 weeks 1 day with my 5th child. I still haven't felt him move. It's getting me worried. I do have an appointment on the 21st so I'm trying to hold off until than..

How far along were you when you felt baby?

This is my 4th and I was not feeling much of anything until after 20 weeks. It was concerning but everything is going well I'm now 37 weeks and he is very active all the time.

I first felt little kicks here and there starting at 13 weeks but didn't get too big til 21 weeks. No worries mama! It'll happen soon :)

I felt movement early with all of mine on the inside. Every pregnancy is diffrent though and so is each woman.

With my 2 year old I didn't feel her until about 23 weeks or so because I had an anterior placenta and she just wasn't big enough foe me to feel her.

I'm 22 weeks now and I feel this one move almost everyday. According to my ultrasound I also have an anterior placenta again but this one is more on my right side

Do you know if you might have an anterior placenta?
I had it with both and I didn't feel them until 20 wks +.

I know every pregnancy is different. But this is my 5th and with my other 4 I felt movement by now

I just like the reassurance... I'm hoping soon.

I will know more at my anatomy scan on the 21st. But when I had a sono around 13/15 weeks, the tech said my placenta was in the front ... I'm wondering if that's why

That's when my placenta is in the front?
If so than yes.
I had the same with #4. I remember feeling her around this time. But I just turned 20 weeks on Thursday.

Yup! That's it.... And that's most likely why. It sucks. :/

But it will get better as the weeks go by.
