Hello everyone. I just wanted to ask everyones thoughts on fetal movement. This is my first pregnancy and I started to feel the baby move about 2 weeks ago. It was moving all over on Friday and I have not felt it now since Friday night. Does anyone now if this is normal. I don't go to the doctor until June 25th.

How far a long are you? They don't suggest kick counts until 27/28 weeks because babies movements are so sporadic before that. And each pregnancy is way different. My first I did not feel anything till 23 weeks, and it was off and on for a couple then pretty solid by 25 weeks. My second I felt her at 12 weeks, then nothing till 16 weeks. This one I felt a flutter at 16 weeks then nothing until last week. I am now 20 weeks and I feel her all the time now. They have their own routine in there already (playing and sleeping and such). So depending on how far along you are I would say normal!

I am 17 weeks. It only worried me because I felt it everyday for a week and a half and then nothing. I was thought it was kinda normal since I am so early but I just wanted to ask some people who have been through it. Thank you for your response. Congrats on the girl.
