Hi. I'm 23+5 and my babies kicks are still not very strong. More like flutterings still really. Is this normal?

Yes, perfectly. It can be affected by lots of things. Position of the placenta. Your own weight. The baby's position. 23 weeks is still very early. I wasn't even feeling reliable movement at that point. You'll be complaining about being booted soon enough.

Yes extremely normal for all the reasons the previous poster outlines.
