    Me too. I am a bigger girl though so I think that doesn't help. I went to the EPU I was so worried about lack of movement (3 previous losses have made me paranoid!) And the midwife told me it's not likely I would feel anything till after 21 weeks. I am nearly 22 weeks and I'm just starting to feel some flutters.

    Don't worry, everyone is different. I know on here I found that everyone seemed to feel movement early and that's what got me a bit worried but it's quite normal I believe not to feel anything at 18 weeks.

    Oh, I also have an anterior placenta that was picked up at my 21 week scan so I think that delays when you feel movement too. So maybe that could delay movement for you too.

    Try not to worry. Xx

    I didn't feel this one until much later one (20+ weeks for a definitive movement) turns out my placenta is anterior.. don't worry about it, I did and it was for nothing :) That said, at later stages when you should be monitoring movements, don't rely on the doppler!! xxx

    Thank you both! I felt movements from 16 weeks with my first I was just having a panic I think placenta is at the front tbh and I'm probably worrying for nothing lol xx
