I was over twenty weeks with my second, and to be honest I hardly ever felt her move as the placenta was at the front.

I didn't feel my DS until 22 weeks (anterior placenta) and this time I have only just felt, what I think is movement (not 100% sure though) and I am just short of 20 weeks. I haven't heard the heartbeat yet, so I understand your concern but its totally normal.

With my first I felt him from 15 weeks but just the flutters.

This one likes to hide. Even when my doctor tries to get the heartbeat it plays hide and seek.. The doctor mentioned already that it is a very active baby.
Just felt it once in a while, but twice now when I put my hand on the belly I can feel the movements..
I'm 18 weeks. At the 12 week scan they said that it looks like this one will be a posterior placenta first one was anterior.

Both of mine were 19-20 weeks - I had anterior placentas.

I didn't feel anything this time until 20 weeks.

It's funny, because only a week or so later I felt hard, definite movement. I just seemed to have skipped the 'flutters'.

It's very early yet, I think anytime from 20-23 weeks is very common.

I still haven't felt baby move or kick. I remember from first pregnancy that I didn't feel anything until is was glaringly obvious, belly moving, obvious thump. Probably around 24-26 weeks.

I saw midwife last week who heard heartbeat fine. I'm impatient. Is there something going on or have I probably just missed the subtle little thumps?
