Can't feel baby move
I'm 20weeks pregnancy with my first baby. I'm of average weight. I'm worried because I haven't felt any fluttering from my baby yet. I think I'm growing, but I can't feel the baby. Could this mean that the baby is not very strong? When should I feel the baby? I;ve also only gained about 7 pounds and I am eating like crazy. Could I not be eating enough?

I didn't feel my DS until I was 21 weeks.  It was a very small flutter only 2-3 per day.  As long as you've been going for your check-ups at the doctor's office, and they've been hearing a good strong heartbeat, then I don't think you have anything to worry about.  :-)

Don't worry.  It is still early for you to feel the baby.  Maybe you'll feel the baby next week.  Also, some babies don't move much during the day but they do at night (when you can't feel them as you are asleep).  You can try having a little orange juice and a snack and then lay down.  The sugar will wake your baby up a bit.  (I read about this little trick on my pregnancy book).

Some babies are just more peaceful. I don't remember when I felt my second babies kicks, but she was very gentle and slow, unlike my first who was crazy from the start. And now, they seem to have personalities to match there kicks. My first (Alicia 3) is a little pistal, my seconds (Opal 1.8) is sweet and calm.
