I'm sure your little one is fine. I have an anterior placenta with this pregnancy so I didn't feel alot of flutters which really drove me crazy. With my second pregnancy I started feeling them around 16 weeks but nothing regular until around 20 weeks or so. I definitely don't think you will feel them everyday at first.
I know for me if I will drink a glass of chocolate milk and then lay down baby will start moving around. I guess it is the sugar plus I become still that gets him going. You might try doing something like that and see if you can feel some flutters.
Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy
When I first started feeling little movements it was very sporadic. Sometimes I would feel several movements in 1 day, but then go a whole day or 2 without feeling anything. During those times I usually used my doppler just because I had one. My doppler really helped me get through those non-consistent, early movement days. But yes, it's totally normal not to feel movements everyday. Baby is still small and going through major growth spurts during those time frames. I'm sure baby is sleeping or being lazy after a wild day of kicking around and growing.
Some people dream of angels but I held one in my arms
The anterior placenta can make a difference. And no, you will not feel them everyday until closer to the 20-22 week mark, it is so hard not to think about though isn't it? Once you feel it you just want to keep feeling the movement! Can you borrow a doppler or buy one for yourself? It might really help with moments like these, it was the only thing that kept me sane for a few weeks.
I have a fetal heart monitor, which doesn't pick up heart tones until at least 6 mos. I remember with my son feeling flutters around 18 weeks and kicking around 20 weeks. But I didn't have the worries then that I have now. Maybe renting a doppler is a good idea. I am completely stressed out.

I haven't been feeling movement every day yet. It get's me worried when I don't as well. It's getting more consistent, but I still have days when i don't feel anything. I'm sure everything is okay in there.
