    Im not sure if it's normal for me not to feel my baby yet. I am 18 weeks pregnant and still have not felt any baby movement... this is my first child after having 2 previous miscarriages. if baby's are so active in the womb than why cant I feel anything? I have gone to all my apt so far and everything is going great and my babys heart beat was 150 when I heard it at 16 weeks. im probably paranoid but I cant stop thinking about how much I want my baby to make movements to let me know they are okay.

    One of my friends didn't feel her third baby move until 22 weeks! So I don't think you have anything to worry about! You could be feeling the baby and not think anything of it too! Like early movements just feel like a gas bubble or something! You feel baby move soon enough! Then when you get as far along as I am( 35 weeks) you will wish baby wouldn't kick you in the ribs so much lol! Good luck and congrats on the pregnancy!
