Do you think it's normal to be 18 weeks pregnant and not feel the baby move?

I'm 18 weeks pregnant and it's been a week and a half since I last felt my baby move.

I think its normal because youre not really that far along and baby is still small so usually by 24 weeks youre definately feeling baby alot but if you feel better with going to the doctor to check up on your little one thats good too :)

I talked to my doctor about this. He said that until like 24-26 weeks I wont feel baby move every day and that it is normal to not feel movement for days at a time. Everyone is different though so you might feel more consistent movement sooner than that.

If your plecenter is in a cetain position it can cushion any movement .

Well it also depends on how big you are. Are you skinny or thick? Because the thicker the longer its going to take for you to feel your little one move. I'm thick so I didn't actually start feeling my princess until I was 28 weeks along. I'm now 32 weeks and loving every second she moves because you can now see my belly move.
