I am a little over 15 weeks along, and I'm not real sure why I'm not feeling more consistent movement. I just knew that since was my 3rd baby, I would feel him/her move early and with more consistency, but that hasn't been the case. Of course, there have been times when I'm almost positive that I have felt the baby; it's just so light and so random. I'm ready for it to be every day so I can start to breathe a little easier. I can't help but worry as to why I'm not feeling it. I know it's probably stupid and that by the end of the pregnancy, I will be anxious to have the baby STOP kicking me all the time, but right now, it's the thing I want most. I'm not overweight to begin with, and I lost 14 pounds the first trimester, so I'm really not overweight now. By the end of each day, I definitely look very pregnant, but in the mornings you can almost barely tell. Anyway, just my feelings this morning. Ready for this little one to be active enough and big enough for me to feel him or her!!!

You know, even with my 3rd baby I didn't feel very consistent movements until about 18 or 19 weeks. I got all worried about it around 17 weeks because it had been a couple days so the doctor ordered an ultrasound and all was perfectly well! He was moving around in there like crazy and for some reason I just couldn't feel it! I'm pretty thin, and so I do tend to feel babies "early" around 14.5 weeks but even then it isn't consistent. Maybe every other day or so until closer to the half-way point.
happy about life in general

dude I know what you mean!

I really thought by now I'd be feeling more especially since it is my 3rd. but I am still only feeling something once every few days. I am trying to not worry, but it is so hard not to.

yeah it is hard not to worry! this is my fifth baby, and i am 18 weeks now. i would say i only feel slight movement every few days. my other babies were really active so it's stressful!

It's driving me nuts too! Seriously I'll feel the baby for several days in a row then nothing for a week. Then a little bit for a couple days then nothing. Driving me crazy! I'm ready to feel this bub EVERY day!

This is my second baby and i first felt movement at 14 weeks but definitely not consistent! This week (i'm now 18 weeks) i'm finally feeling baby consistently everyday. Since the baby is still so small at 15 weeks i'm sure that's why it hasn't been consistent. Give it a few weeks and i bet you'll be feeling a lot more!!
