    NO don't worry. Some people just don't feel it that early. Also it can depend on where the placenta is sitting - it might be cushioning the little kicks. I'm only half a week behind you and my little taps are so subtle that I'm sure I don't notice it most of the time. Try to relax, you'll be fine!

    Plus how exciting thatyou have your scan soon. :cheer: :hug:

    It may be because your placenta is at the front so you wouldnt feel baby till later on loads of ladies on here havent felt there lo's move till after 20 weeks so i wouldnt worry im sure baby is fine and kicking away in there and it wont be much longer till you feel him/her.

    hi hun, try not to worry, your scan will reassure you :hug:

    my placenta is at the front and i haven't felt anything at all yet, so it could be possible yours is too?

    I only started feeling proper kicks over xmas when I was 22 weeks. Try laying down somewhere quiet after you've eaten and you may feel him squirming around. At first it feels like trapped wind!

    DONT WORRY!!

    i didnt feel anything until about 21/22 weeks as i had an anterior placenta. you cant feel your first as early as people feel following pregnancies.

    when it starts at 3am you may wish it would give you a break!!

    Yeah, definitely don't worry! Depending on where your placenta is will depend on how much and what you feel. Don't worry - you will feel him/her eventually and then it won't stop LOL
