    OK so I'm almost 20 weeks and still haven't felt any kicks from this little one. :( :(

    I've felt the odd strage feeling in my stomach - but can't decide if it's baby moving or just wind :oops:

    When did you all feel real kicks?

    I was about the same - 20 weeks ish. When I went for my scan at 21 weeks I told the sonographer and she said it was quite normal.

    I get some really squiggly days now and can even see my belly move but she's still more of a wriggler than a kicker. :rotfl:

    I felt my first proper kick at 21 weeks - but I have anterior placenta. I still dont feel many high kicks!

    When I went for my sexing scan at 17 weeks the sonographer said my placenta was at the front which is why I may not feel anything just yet... Also I think if its your first (it is mine) you tend to feel the baby a bit later. He was really active on the scan tho I was amazed I couldnt feel anything!

    I very rarely feel mine at the moment. It's normally only if I lie still and put my hands on my tummy I feel tiny little taps.
    When I'm doppling I seem to get mainly placenta across a large area so maybe my placenta is at the front. Will find out on Monday :cheer: :cheer:

    I had just more or less written the same post.

    I occasionally get a 'feeling' like a heavy feeling.. and thats about it.. but this isn't everyday or anything... I thought I felt a 'thump' but thats over 2 weeks ago now.. and I'm concerned... :cry:

    Shouldn't we be getting proper movements now? At least some other people are not feeling them till later on...

    IF something was wrong/bad I would know wouldn't I?

    It's not uncommon not to feel anything at your stage, especially if it's your first baby.
    If you are worried give your midwife a call, her doppler will soon put your mind at rest :hug: :hug:

    I need to get a private scanned booked as our wonderful NHS trust only gives you one scan at 12 weeks.

    Did wonder if I had an anterior placenta as I still struggle to get baby's heartbeat and often only hear the swooshing of the placenta.

    Phoned up Babybond and the women was useless - couldn't understand that I just wanted a scan and not find out the sex of the baby. They said I would need to wait until at least 24 weeks to get a growth scan - just want to see bubs again.

    Might phone back - see if I can speak to someone else.[/quote]
