This is NOT my first pregnancy, I have a 9 1/2 and 6 year old. I really thought that I would feel some sort of movement by now.
I am now 17weeks 2 days and NOTHING. No fluttering, no weird stomach turning, NOTHING!
For you BTDT moms, when did you start feeling movement?
I'm not worried to the point of calling the dr or anything because my abdomin is still growing I just want to be able to feel a little movement.

I am almost 22 weeks now and the movements are just now becoming regular. I didn't feel anything until about 19 weeks. I have an anterior placenta which makes it harder to feel the baby early on. The movements still aren't strong but they are becoming stronger and more noticeable now. DH just felt her for the first time Thursday.

I think its different for everyone. I felt movement earlier this time around, but it was still REALLY sporadic until 22 weeks or so. Even at that point, it would sometimes be long enough in between that I would start to worry. Now she is crazy active. I'm sure you'll start feeling them in the next few weeks

I was probably around where you are when I started to feel some movements, but a few more weeks before it was fairly regular.

I bet you will start to feel some in the next couple weeks!

I'm nearly 20w and this is my 3rd pregnancy to make it this far along...I've only felt my baby MAYBE 4 or 5 times...BUT...I finally found out that I have an anterior placenta so my doc said it could be a few more weeks before I really start to feel her move...she said its basically like having a pillow between the baby and my belly...her kicks have to get hard enough to kick through the placenta, uterine wall and then my stomach...

So don't fret...every baby is different

For some reason I start to fell movements really early . With this pregnancy I started around 10 weeks, but that is not always so good. It never stayed constant which made me really nervous. I am 19 weeks and I just started feeling regular movement ..

Thanks ladies, makes me feel a little better that I am not alone.
Hopefully I will start feeling movement within the next week.

Of course when I am fullterm I will be dreading the kicks since they will hurt so much,
