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 didnt start to REALLY feel him until about 24-25 weeks.. I got nervous too.. but now I feel him ALL THE TIME!

Give it a little time.. I bet you'll start to feel your babies soon.

My boys are beautiful and look forward to meeting the new member of our family

I didn't really start feeling him move until I was 26 weeks. Before that I was like you, just the occasional kick or roll. Now it's pretty constant. I'm not sure why it took longer, but I enjoy it now

My boys are my life.

There are a lot of ladies in my DDC who have anterior placentas and because of that won't feel movement until later on. Maybe that could be why?

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.

I was told that it may be 22-23 weeks until I feel consistent movement. Lately, though, the little peanut has taken to kicking me as I try to fall asleep!
