Not feeling the baby yet...

I'm 19 weeks, and I haven't felt the baby move yet. We've heard the heartbeat at our check-ups and I have a sonogram next week. When would you start worrying if you hadn't felt anything?

Re: Not feeling the baby yet...

One of my friends, who gave birth to a VERY healthy boy on Tuesday, didn't feel anything until just about 20 weeks, and nothing regular until about 2 weeks later. Her baby is big, beautiful, and strong.

I have heard people not feel anything until upwards of 24 weeks.

It's probably just his position or where the placenta is located. If the placenta is in front you will likely not feel much until babe is a little bigger.

Re: Not feeling the baby yet...

I was almost 26 weeks on my second one before I felt anything.

Re: Not feeling the baby yet...

With #2 I had an anterior placenta so I didn't feel the baby move until 21-22 weeks. However, I had had an u/s at 13 weeks and was told I had an anterior placenta so I was expecting it. But I would have freaked out otherwise because I felt #1 so much earlier. If you're really worried, call your ob.

Re: Not feeling the baby yet...

i'd check with your ob. but like the other mamas said, i'm sure everything is just fine and maybe it's just the baby's position, etc.

Re: Not feeling the baby yet...

That is very common, it can have to do with the position of the baby and the position of the placenta, uterus, baby could be measuring small, and occasionally the EDD can be off a little bit. Your baby is only about 7oz (give or take some) and 6 inches long, it might be hard to feel for the next few weeks. Or maybe you're baby is most active when you're sleeping.

This is my 3rd and I didn't feel much until 20 weeks and not regularly until 22 weeks. I feel a little cheated by this pregnancy, to be honest. My 22 week ultrasound confirmed I have an anterior placenta. I would ask about the position of your placenta when you go for your ultrasound.

Re: Not feeling the baby yet...

My SIL had an anterior placenta with her first and she NEVER felt the baby move b/c of it.
