Ok, you are all gonna think I am weird for this post.  I am 16 1/2 weeks pg with my 4th baby.  With every other pg I have felt baby movements really early, like 13-14 weeks.  Here I am 16 1/2 and i have not felt many at all.  it may be once a day or every 2-3 days.  could the position of your placenta make a difference in if you detect movements?  not sure the location of placenta as of yet.  i almost wonder if  the baby is in there:)  I don't have an appointment for another week and the question of whether everything is ok is killing me.  i guess i shouldn't compare this pregnancy to others cuz i know they can all be different.  i'm just missing the movements - its the best part of being pregnant and i have been used to enjoying it by this time.

Yes - some women have reduced feeling due to an anterior placenta. Each pregnancy is different, too. With DD, I felt her boinging around like a bouncy ball at 14 weeks. With this one, it feels like a little goldfish swimming around.
