Baby kickin
Hey August mommies , I have a question I'm 20 weeks and 6 days as of today and have only felt my son move a few times , idk why I'm so worried maybe because it's my first child . I've looked online and saw that some people can't feel there baby until 22 weeks and another person couldn't feel there baby until 6 in a half months . Any feedback or anything from anyone that would be great , thanks

I'm 19 weeks and I've only felt my baby move around a few times too. I've looked around online and talked to my doctor about it and I guess its pretty normal especially if its your first pregnancy.

I feel bub quite often and I'm 20+2 but it definitely varies from person to person, as well as pregnancy to pregnancy. Try laying or sitting down and concentrate on your belly to see if you notice the movements. You could always get a Doppler so you can listen to bubs heart if you are worried but I'm sure everything is fine and you'll feel bub in your own time :)

I'm 19 weeks and my little one moves a lot whenever I drink ice cold coke, or eat spicy foods! It's a very suttle feeling, definetly doesn't feel like someone touching you lol. More like nervous butterflies or little fluttering in the lower abdomen. The first time you feel it, you may be in doubt if it was baby or gas, but after the baby starts moving more and more you won't be able to mistake it!

Like me, your placenta may be at the front cushioning some of the blows
