    This is my 4th pregnancy and I am 18 weeks but I thought I would have been able to feel baby kicking by now ? I felt him move about a few times but not felt it in a while now .... Don't know if I'm just being a para head or not ?

    Do you know if you have an anterior placenta? This made my kicks barely noticable until recently x

    No I don't no. I've had my 12 week scan and they never mentioned it. But with this being my 4th baby I thought I would have felt a lot by now. X

    This is my third and I'm the same if that helps any. 19 weeks today. I feel the odd jab.

    I also have a mummy tummy before pregnancy so I don't know if it's the extra layers for me too!! I have my 20 week scan thur.

    I'm sure all ok Hun but it's no harm contacting hospital if want some reassurance xx

    I'm 18 weeks tomorrow and have only felt a few kicks. It's my third baby so I was getting a bit concerned too, I had a reassurance scan today after having an amnio last week and was told today that I have an anterior placenta. Baby was moving loads on the scan :) I'm sure your babyours will be madly kicking away in there - it won't be long before you're feeling every movement, I'm sure x

    I'm 22+4 and only just starting to feel kicks rather than flutters. Actually saw my belly jump for the first time earlier!

    I only felt flutters from 17 weeks last time. No strong kicks until later on. They check where the placenta is on 20 week scan don't they? X

    I haven't really felt anything, and the ones I think I've felt, I doubt myself all the time as to whether it was a little flutter or not! trying to chill about it as it seems pretty normal going by you ladies xx
