Im baffled...anyone else?

Im 14w2d today and how is it that there is a baby the size of my fist in my uterus and I cant feel it??   That just baffles me.  They say you typically cant feel movement until 16 weeks or more.  Once again, baffled.  Lol.

I feel the same way! I've been telling my boyfriend that too. There's a baby kicking and punching in there and I seriously wonder how the hell can I not feel it?? I think I've been feeling some movements already, but it's hard to distinguish from gas! I'm 16 w 2d now

I feel the same especially after seeing how much he is moving around in there and I feel nothing

Your uterus is still thicker than it will be in a couple weeks! That dampens the movement. It's most likely gas if you feel things at this point, but it's not impossible necessarily! I'm in my second pregnancy and still don't think I've felt real movement yet... didn't until 19wks with my first, but also had anterior placenta.

I am starting week 15 and have noticed at night when I lay down I can feel the baby moving. Feel weird because it is really low but that is one thing they ate watching is how low the baby is

I went to the doctor and got the Doppler check at around 14 weeks and my baby was like flailing its arms and like jumping up and down and I couldn't feel a bit of it.  I was like wth.

Im 16wks with my 3rd child and I still don't feel 'her'(hopefully lol) move yet. Which is a bit of a concern to me because they say the more times you've been prego, the sooner you can feel it. Doesnt seem to be true in my casevand I've seen and heard movement.. So I KNOW its happening. Its actually kind of frustrating/disappointing.

I think my little one is either stronger than it should be or bigger, but I can put my hand on my tummy and feel it moving or kicking...I'll be 17 weeks tomorrow

With my 1st I was 17 weeks, 2nd I was 21 weeks (anterior placenta) then I'm now 14 weeks 2 days and have felt some questionable movement but last night I was sure it was baby... it was a ton of movement like baby was either doing flips or working on an 80s exercise video!
