I do feel them occasionally but not on a regular basis. I am almost 18 wks. I am always running after my two dc so maybe i just don't feel them yet. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> Anyone else?

I have an anterior placenta for the first time ( my 4th pregnancy) and I feel my bean about 2 or3 times a week. Its very different than my other pregnancies! Maybe that's the reason for your not feeling them?

I had 2 u/s one at 6 wks one at 9. Would they have been able to tell then? Also does it affect hearing the hb cuz i heard mine really early. But when I am laying down I can feel my heart beating through my uterus more than with my other two. I have had 3 m/c so not feeling baby much yet is stressing me out. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:

I'm only feeling what I think are movements every now and then - nothing consistent. I'm trying not to worry. I didn't feel with my DS2 until a few weeks further along and I will be 18 weeks on Saturday. My belly is definitely growing so I'm hoping that all is well and from what I read it's not that uncommon to take a little longer to feel lots of movement. I have my next appointment in a week so it will be nice to hear that hb again and be reassured!

I'm 18 weeks, pregnant with my first, and not really feeling movement. Every now and then (read once every other day or two) I feel something that <i>might</i> be movement...but I'm still not convinced. I wanna feel baby so much! I too am trying not to get nervous. I have an u/s in a week and hope that will show a happy wiggly baby.

I'm 14w and feel something every so often. But it could be gas! A friend who is 16w told me she hasn't felt a thing yet. And we have both heard the h/b this week. I think everyone is different!

I'm 15 weeks today and I have only felt a few flutters yet. Nothing that I would call a 'kick'. I didn't feel kicks with my DD until around 22 weeks.

I wasn't feeling a lot of movement until the last couple of days - I'm 18wks tomorrow. Really the last 10 days is when I started *knowing* I felt movement, and since Sunday when I was sick and laying down all day, I've felt it a LOT more. We also suspect an anterior placenta (will confirm tomorrow) which really makes a difference! We had a hard time hearing the hb, but I hear that's not always the case with an anterior placenta.<br><br>
The baby will get stronger and stronger and I'm sure you'll be feeling more in a very short time! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I feel them more at work and at night. I think it is because I am down and not playing with my 14 month old, I actually have time to feel them! I loveit though! I am feeling them more often now so I can feel like I am pregnant a few times a day!<br><br>
(I really hope this is no indication of his/her personality because I work at night!)

I've felt a few flutters that I thought might be the baby, but I'm not entirely sure. I'll be 15 weeks tomorrow and this is my first baby, so I'm not too worried about it yet.

I haven't felt a thing yet <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> I will be 17 weeks on Thurs. I mentioned this to my m/w and she said 20-24 w was more the norm (though most people tell me they feel it earlier the second time around).

Well, I am feeling one almost every day, but the other only two to three times a week. I do know from early u/s's that the one I am feeling most implanted right up in the corner of my uterus - sort of wedged him/herself in there nice and tight, so that is probably why I am feeling that one more. Also, I have noticed that the more active I am, the less I feel either one. I have read that when you are active, baby is lulled to sleep, so that is probably why you are not feeling your bean much. As the pps said, baby will get stronger and you will feel him or her lots soon!

I think I'm just starting to feel kicks this time.<br><br>
My first pregnancy I didn't feel them until 19 weeks. It took swimming, and flipping around in the pool, to get the baby to turn around and kick me somewhere I could feel it.

This thread is reassuring. I have been feeling nudges since about 12 weeks but lately, I can go days without feeling anything. I am seventeen weeks tomorrow.<br><br>

18 weeks and no movement yet. This is my first, so I'm not surprised.

I'll be 17 weeks tomorrow and feel the occasional little bump or flutter. My placenta is anterior too, and this is my first, so I'm not expecting much more than that. Besides, they have a LOT of room to explore at this point. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
