    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    Alright. I am 20w as of friday (so its 20w4d) and have not felt baby move. At all. This is the 3rd pregnancy I have carried this far and have another sono appointment on Friday. That's the fifth sono. Baby was somewhat inactive last time and I am heavy so I know that has an effect on how much/little I feel him/her move. I can't help but freak out though. And I KNOW that most ladies dont feel their baby until about now anyway... but... nothing. No flutters. No "feels like gas but could be baby..." I know what I am feeling for. Tried juice test but no luck. Ugh. Dont want to call doc if it's just me freaking out... but dont want to wonder either...

    Hello!

    Try not to freak out...not everybody feels movement/kicking at exactly 20 weeks. Even some smaller framed women don't start feeling that until about 22 weeks.

    If you were 30 weeks and still didn't feel anything, then you can worry. Try to relax...your beautiful baby will be kicking you in no time.

    I know you're anxious...I understand because I am too. I'm only 17 weeks as of tomorrow and I CAN'T WAIT to feel my LO kick me.
