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
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.
