I am sure it is fine :) sometimes placenta is on the way so you don't feel the movement till theyreally start kicking

I have an anterior placenta and have been told that I probably won't feel anything for quite some time.  Later than women who don't have an anterior placenta.  For peace of mind, I bought a fetal heart monitor so at least i can check for the hb. (i'm only a little over 12 weeks now so not expecting to feel anything yet, but just thinking of the future).  I'm on another pregnancy forum and from reading there, I'd say it's not unusual to not feel anythig at 16 weeks.

I'm 21 weeks with my third also, and dont recall feeling much at all at 16 weeks, in fact i was getting concerned i wasn't feeling much at 19 weeks! But at my 19 week u/s it showed that baby was turned inwards, meaning i wouldnt feel anything unless he turned around. Even now, i might only get a couple of 'taps' a day, i remember being about 24 weeks before i felt any definate 'kicks'. I honestly wouldn't worry too much :)

But they tols me my placenta is at the back so its easier for me to feel. Everyonea different. I remember at 16 wks i was so paranoid and waiting for every slightest thing! Everyones different z z just take it easy and relax xx

I am on the chubby side and didn't feel this baby move till 19 weeks. Baby before was much earlier. You should get scan at 20 weeks so can see baby moving about. Don't get yourself worried x
