I have been feeling this little one since pretty early on- 11 week. Almost every day. I just felt the baby kick from the outside a few days ago, and now I havent felt anything in 2 days. Reassure me!

If it makes you feel any better I am 16 weeks and haven't felt the baby move at all yet. I understand why you would feel nervous but I am sure your baby is doing great. Think about how tiny the baby is still and maybe they have been more active at night while you are sleeping and that's why you haven't felt anything in a couple days. Don't worry, I am sure everything is fine <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Totally normal to not feel anything. I think I maybe felt the baby a week or two ago, around 16 weeks, but I haven't felt it since.<br><br>
My friend told me she first felt hers at around 15/16 weeks,and then not again until 18 or so weeks. Totally normal. Feeling the baby really early is kind of a fluke, since it's so small.

I felt tons of movement around 12 weeks then nothing for weeks and weeks. It was making me nutty. I am now 17 weeks and think that maybe I am feeling little tiny kicks every now and then. I still get worried sometimes but at 17 weeks it's still considered perfectly normal not to feel anything. Your two days of no movement sound wonderful compared to my 5 weeks!

Yes. Normal. I've been trying to talk myself into this as well since I felt this LO really early too. It's been about a week and I haven't felt anything at all (and I've had events in my family that have made me UBER paranoid--separate post about that coming). I know it's normal, irritating and a bit troublesome? Yup. But normal.

I am in the same boat! It's so frustrating! I haven't felt anything in a couple of weeks...can't wait for my appointment next week, so I can be reassured by the baby's heartbeat! I guess they just like to take loooooooooooong siestas!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>

Same here. I felt movement much earlier with this one than my daughter and it's been really weird to not feel it all the time. Intellectually I know the baby is very small, but my body's last memory of being pregnant is based on a full-term baby.

They're so little, still, that if they get turned around and start kicking something that has no nerve endings, you'd never even know they were there...
