...but if any of you remember the topic that I posted just a couple days ago, I was able to see my stomach move with Baby #2's kicks for the first time. I felt kicks stronger in those 30 minutes than I had yet. But then the next day, nothing. The next day, nothing. Today---nothing. I doubt that I'm far enough along to feel EVERYTHING, but since I felt such strong movement, shouldn't I be feeling SOMEthing now?

I also haven't felt a thing since last week, so I'm hoping it's all normal! I've been told not to expect anything regular until I'm past 20 weeks or so...

I would try not to worry. It is still very irregular at this point. They are still so small, that if they move and are kicking inward or in a different direction, it may not hit anything that you would be able to feel.

i am almost 18 weeks and still never feel anything.

It's still too early to feel anything consistent. This is my 9th, I'm 20+ lbs underweight, and even I don't feel anything consistent and probably won't for a couple weeks yet. I felt some taps on mothers day and for 2 days after, then nothing at all til 2 days ago and I could feel the baby roll/flip.

When I was 20 weeks with my youngest daughter I was in a bad accident that totalled my van, I wasn't injured but was crampy and by the next day still hadn't felt the baby move since the accident and they didn't want to see me saying that 20 weeks even was still too early for it to be uncommon not to feel the baby for a few days or more.

Thank you, ladies!!! I was wondering if seeing my belly move was more just a chance thing than anything (i.e., the baby being in JUST the right spot, kicking JUST the right place), and I guess that's the case. I feel reassured now! Thank you! I'm glad I'm not the only one. With Caleb, things seemed consistent pretty early on, but he was just really active and I had nothing better to do than obsess over my belly.
