    I am really starting to worry as I am 19+2 and yet to feel any movement at all from baby. I am currently suffereing with round ligament pain or so the doctor thinks also with shooting pains down below (sorry TMI) :blush:. This is my 1st baby and about 2 weeks ago I did feel a popping sensation but nothing since. Got my scan on 8th Feb but really worrying at the moment.:sad:

    Try not to worry hun, it's perfectly normal to not have felt movement yet. With my first I didn't feel a single thing until I was exactly 22 weeks and even then it was only a little flutter I was unsure of lol

    This time I was feeling loads of movement but it's really slowed down recently and [email protected] been so worried but at the scan today LO was absolutely fine and kicking away and I couldn't feel any of it coz she was kicking mostly inwards lol

    Also, the placenta might be at the front and therefore cushioning any kicks etc! Just read my scan results and they have put that I have an anterior placenta, they didn't mention it during the scan, but it explains why the movements aren't so frequent too!

    From what I have read it is perfectly normal not to feel anything until 20 weeks. I have a low lying placenta which means there isn't anything cushioning baby so I have felt kicks but I really wouldn't worry :) x x

    I've just been feeling irregular flutters. Have used doppler and can still hear heartbeat so I'm guessing all is ok. Have also read that with 1st baby it's normal not to feel anything until after 20 weeks.

    Don't worry, hun. I had lots of flutters on one day a few days ago, and then nothing for a couple of days. Last night I got the most almighty kick when I had my hand on my tummy in bed, but very little since. Until much later, we will only feel some of the movements, and it may well be that baby is facing your back or you have an anterior placenta, both of which will mean that you feel less. I was worried until my scan this morning, and baby was just fine. xxx
