Baby movements

I'm 18 weeks today and I have been consistently feeling my little man kick daily for a few weeks.  I'm worried I have not felt him kick since Wednesday and I'm freaking out a little, my husband is telling me not to worry but with all the complications I have had its hard not too.  I can't call my ob because her office is closed til Monday and my daughter is pretty sick so I can't go to the hospital, hubby out of town working.  I guess my question is early on like this is it common to not feel baby kick for a day or so?  I'm kind of freaking out in silence here

I am 21 weeks and sometimes I don't feel him until I just relax and then he goes to dancing. I have gone a day without feeling anything.

Its perfectly normal to not feel him that early. I didn't feel my baby girl at all until 18wks. Regular kicks didn't begin until 23 wks. Try not to worry mama :) in fact most OB's don't want u to start counting kicks until 28wks simply because movement can be so inconsistent.

My midwife told me to start monitoring baby movement at 25 weeks, so i guess they are not worried at 18 weeks yet. And i think some women don't feel baby at all that early. Don't worry xx
