Hopefully someone will have an answer for me. I'm almost 24 weeks and EVERYONE in my DDC is feeling big movements, I feel the occasional roll/kick but nothing major. Is it b/c of the extra weight I carry? It really was beginning to worry me but everything checked out OK at the doctor's. I just wish I was feeling him more
I was wondering the same thing and asked my doctor the other day and she said possibly. i think it may just depend really, i am about 80 - 100 lbs over weight and am finally starting to feel little movements but bairley any at all. hopefully you feel more soon!!!
I doubt it has anything to do with your weight (or at least not much), some babies are just more active than others, especially before the 3rd trimester. I felt Caitlynn move pretty consistently from about 18-weeks on, but she was always very active. At my 20-week u/s she was doing flips=)!!! As long as everything else is going well and your doctor is not concerned, I wouldn't worry too much... I bet you will start to feel those big movements pretty soon=).
It's definately nothing to worry about i didn't feel major movements till 22 week or so. And still some days i dont feel a lot, although a lot of it is because I'm busy all day and dont really think about every movement. Plus doctors say if you up and moving baby is gonna sleep because they love the movement. But it does make sense you have a little extra padding to protect baby, so why wouldn't that padding dull out some of the movements. And remember slimmer mommies are also dealing with streching and our beatiful bodies are lready prepared for a baby, so that may contribute to the difference.
