I felt some flutters at 9 weeks for a week or so. Since then nothing. I'm 18 weeks today. I'm not concerned, just ready to have movements. I know I ws late feeling DS, I just assumed I'd be feeling #2 already. Any other mom's waiting on movement...?

I was 21 weeks yesterday and today is really the first day that I am feeling any real movement. I would feel the odd tweak before this but it was very sporadic - I would sometime go days without feeling anything.

Do you know where you placenta is situated? Mine is anterior which is apparently why a lot of his movement is muted. Today though I think he is hiccuping which is why I'm feeling so much lol.

I'm worried too. I felt sure, sure sure, that I was feeling movement a few weeks ago, but for that last week or so -- nada. I don't know if it's normal.

Me, me! I'm 18w5d and still not feeling anything. I thought I was feeling something over the weekend, different than anything I've felt before, but I'm not certain that it was movement and I haven't felt it since.

I don't know where my placenta is placed. I have a lot more pains in stomach than last time. I took a walk, dragging 2 toddlers in wagon. Even before that, I was feeling slight pain in bottom right part of tummy. Guess I can ask when we go for us in 2 weeks. I don't think I had movement until 22 weeks last time.

I had the same thing, I felt movement at about 9 weeks and woudl feel it almost every night in bed for a few weeks. Now I am going on 17 weeks and don't feel anything. I was getting a bit worried but I just went to my MW yesterday and heard the heartbeat so now my mind is at ease

She said the baby may have just gotten in a comfy position where I can't feel movement. They are still so tiny that movement is hard to feel anyway and if they aren't in just the right position you probably won't feel it. She did say that this baby is REALLY low, she had to press on my pelvic bone ot find th heartbeat. So I wonder if that has any affect on me not feeling movements?

I was getting worried too with this pregnancy and I am going on 20 weeks this Thursday. Today is the first day that I can actually feel continuous movement. If I didn't have any by my ultrasound I was going to be a bit extreme and call my provider. (is that crazy?)

I want to be feeling kicks and squiggles so bad!!! At seventeen weeks, I'm getting the very sporadic, never constant, hard to tell precisely what's going on twitch or two. I am a UP/UCer, so it's all really intuition based for me... I kinda want to worry, but know that's not gonna get me anywhere. With my first pregnancy(from a different relationship) I felt movement at 15 wks and he squirmed and squiggled and kicked non-stop until he was born. I think my husband just makes mellow babies... My daughter's pregnancy(also UP) I didn't feel an awful lot very often. And I didn't feel movement until later than usual, though I can't remember at what week. She would roll ever, stretch... and then seem to sleep for three days. *haha* So I am not really worrying... Just wishing little dude/dudette were a little more interactive. Maybe babe's just resting up to be a wild thing like big sister.

First pregnancy I had an anterior placenta and didn't feel anything until 23 weeks. This time I didn't feel anything until 19.5 weeks, and even then it was just little flutters like a fish brushing past you.
