I am 19 weeks pregnant and not feeling any movement; should I be concerned?This is my second child.
I felt plenty of movement with my first at only 16 weeks. My last ultrasound showed movement but couldn't hear a heart beat because my placenta was in the way.
First, Congrats on your second child!! :) And no, I don't believe you should be concerned. With my first child I didn't start to feel movement until 21 weeks along and everything was fine. Now with me second I started feeling movement at around 17 weeks. With my first I was worried that he hadn't moved yet at 18 weeks and when I asked my doctor, he said that usually you can start to feel the baby after 20 weeks, but if you do still do not feel any movement by 23 weeks you might want to contact the doctor just encase. Or just ask your doc at your next appointment, because if you are anything like I was, you won't be able to wait to find out if you should be worried. :) But IMO I don't think you have anything to worry about at this point.
