Was wondering when I should start to worry & tlk to my doctor about not feeling kicks!!?? I am a first time mommy 21 weeks & yes I feel the flutters & I do love it when I feel them I love feeling my son move it puts a smile on my face & it makes my boyfriend get all happy when I tell him his son is moving. I know lots of women feel kicks around this time some even feel them at 18 weeks. Might sound crazy but I really want to feel my son kick me. Is there anything I can do? Is there anything I should be worried about? Thank u mommies

Drink orange juice and lay down on your side that should help. Or eat something with sugar.  I don't think I felt my son  kicking until I was more in the 20 weeks.

The flutters *are* the kicks.  As your baby and uterus get bigger they will feel stronger and stronger.  Don't worry, everything's fine.
