I don't think so.  I was very thin with my first pregnancy and didn't officially feel the baby move until 20 weeks.  goo luck

I'm a size 12 I'm with my first baby it took me a long time to realize what a kick was and gie it felt that wasn't gas it wasn't an air bubble. And they always say that count your kicks and that if you don't feel the right amount of kicks in the day that you should be worried but my doctor always told me that as long as I felt movement and it was normal for my baby it was fine but I really didn't feel him move until I was about 21 22 weeks

I'm a bigger person and I felt my son move very early. It was the quickening and it wasn't all the time. Felt it really around 14 weeks. I'm 18 weeks 4 days and and I feel him a lot more now. It's actual movements now. This is almost mg second. My first I felt around 18 weeks I think. Been almost 5 years since I was pregnant with my first

I am small, 20 weeks and still haven't felt anything so I would say it's more or less just how strong of a movement it is, not your size. But hey! Who knows. Soon enough you'll feel your baby, don't worry !

I'm on the slimmer side and felt baby moving around 18 weeks and by 22 weeks my partner could feel them. I don't know if size plays a big part in it or not. If you're a ftm you'll usually start to feel them between 18-23 weeks. I felt so anxious waiting to feel my first kicks too. But now I'm 28 weeks and you can clearly see baby moving when you look at my belly haha :)

I was told by a Dr it matters on how your nerves are constructed and everyone has a different pattern through their stomach nerves, it also depends on how high or low the baby implanted and is growing,so thw size of the woman does not matter, just the sensitivity of her body. In both my pregnancies i felt them move before 16 weeks, but didn't feel strong kicks till 20 weeks.

I Was 120lbs When I Got Pregnant With My Daughter, I Started Feeling Little Flutters And Movement Around 10W. Like A Little Bug Run Across My Belly.. But I Knew It Was Her.
With My Son I Was 103lbs When I Found Out I Was Pregnant And I Didnt Feel Anything Till About 16W. Now I'm Due And Uhhhh He's Killing Me From The Inside He's To Big Lol.
Everyone's Different. I Had A Friend That Was About 115lbs With Her Daughter And She Didnt Even Know She Was Pregnant Till 30W And Thats Because She Got In An Accident And The Hospital Told Her. She Didnt Gain Weight Didnt Feel Movement , Crazy.....
