I"m 15w2days and not feeling anything. This is my third pregnancy and I can't remember when I started feeling the baby but think it was around 14 weeks. It is sometimes normal to not feel anything at this point?

I've been concentrating every night trying to feel something and I feel nothing yet. I'm 14w4d. I've felt so good this week it's hard to believe I'm pregnant. It'll be great to feel baby move and connect to my brain that I'm really pregnant!

I don't know how normal, but I'm 15w4d and also my third pregnancy and I'm not feeling it.  I'm trying to remember, but I think I did by this point before.  I think I feel one isolated kick every few days, but not enough to convince me that that's really what it is, since it's usually more than just one at a time.  I'm counting on every pregnancy being different, and maybe this baby isn't so insanely hyperactive as my others.  I was looking at the babycenter website (my son likes to know what size fruit the baby is every week) and it said seasoned moms will start to feel after 16 weeks, and first timers are 18-22.  Obviously many moms here are defying that logic, but it put me at ease a bit.

It does make you paranoid though.

I'm 15w3d today, and I swear I've been feeling bumps and flutters for a few weeks. It's my first, so I can't really be sure, but...it's always in the same spot (on my left side, about an inch above my hairline). And usually at certain times of day--while I'm eating dinner, for one.

Camprunner that's awesome! Every time the baby kicks I wonder if it's able to be felt on the outside. It's so sporadic though, I never have time to catch it when it happens. I'm 15w2d so it shouldn't be long I hope.

My husband hasn't really felt it yet, but when he touches my belly, our baby moves enough for me to feel it! He thinks I'm silly because I said the baby knows its daddy is near. I can't wait for us to really feel it from the outside!

I was lying down and my DH laid his head right on my lower belly. He must have been *exactly* on top of the little bug, because we both felt a huge, full 360degree flip. It was awesome.

This was at 15 weeks exactly. Other than that one huge flip, I get little rubs and some flutters, but mostly I just stress out about how much I'm not feeling. redface.gif

Love, p

I think I felt a little something last night. I'm 12 weeks 6 days. I'm not positive though. I hope to start feeling more soon so I won't worry so much.

I'm 17 weeks today, and I've been feeling baby a lot this morning. Must have been the little bit of syrup I had with my breakfast this morning lol I love love feeling this little life inside me! It makes all the aches and pains of this journey worth it orngbiggrin.gif

I am feeling so much movement lately.  It makes me feel so happy.  The 16th week has been a big bouncy week for this kidlet.  I'm eager to learn more about his/her rhythms, like how  my daughter always got super active when I was at social gatherings (she wanted to be part of the action!) and my son always wiggled around if my daughter was crying or if I was singing.  Both of my kids were quite active in utero (though my daughter more so -- she always felt like she was busily bustling away in there, whereas my son seemed like he was content and just stretching his little limbs).  This one seems to be following a similar path, although I'd say the movement is more on the roly/bustly end than the stretchy/kicky.  Which makes sense because I am anticipating a slightly more intense personality, as opposed to my the sweethearted and mellow nature of my son.

I am 13 weeks, and I haven't felt anything but do not expect to either yet.  I just looked up my pregnancy journal from last time and I felt my daughter at 19 weeks but was unsure as she was my first.  However, it was quite a bit later that my partner felt her, since it was more like I felt in on the inside.  Then I took a plane trip at 20 weeks, and it was on the plane that I was absolutely positive that it was movement, because she was so active.

FINALLY! I can say I feel movement love.gif Last couple nights I thought maaaybe but last night I'm sure what I'm feeling is baby. It brought back memories of feeling my first two. I just love it! Looking forward to DH getting to feel baby.

16 weeks today and no noticeable movement that I can tell. But I am noticing some growing pains - Perhaps any day now? :)

I felt this little one bopping around pretty well yesterday, last night and today. I always said with DD that it was like she was having a raging dance party in there and this one seems to be following in her footsteps. I'm wondering how long it will be before I can have DH see if he feels anything. 15w4d.

I saw my OB today, cuz I've been having some crazy migraines. And before we left she checked baby with the Doppler and baby totally kicked it! Hahaha we heard the HB and then after a few seconds I felt something and then we heard a big THUD. We all laughed. It was awesome. Just 5 days til our anatomy scan. I can't wait! orngbiggrin.gif

I'm so jealous of you gals getting early anatomy scans!! Mine isn't scheduled until 11/7. That days isn't looking great so I'm going to try to schedule it a bit sooner but not by much!

I don't remember ever being offered the first trimester screening with DD. so with her it wasn't until about 20 weeks that we got an ultrasound. I don't know if between now and then Alberta Health started covering the early screening, or if the clinic I went to with DD just dropped the ball. It was hard to wait that long. Hopefully the time passes quickly for you. smile.gif

my obs office doesn't routinely offer an early one either...just the 20 weeker.  I did however, ask for an early one the last two pregnancies (I have an "in" with the ultrasound tech ;)) due to my early previous losses.

 

Regarding movement...I feel all my babies very very early, however, none of them have ever been super active in utero.  They wait until they are about a year and a half-two years to start in with that.
