Hi Ladies,

I am going to be 24 weeks this Friday (14th) and baby is not yet kicking, this is my first pregnancy should I be worried?

Where is your placenta it should say on your scan report. Mine was anterior (on the front wall) so cushioned a lot of them and didn't feel movements till after my 20 week scan.
If your worried go and get checked out at the hospital.

Sit down and drink a cold glass of water of squash. If no movement Go and get checked out.

I didn't feel any kicks until about 22 weeks, I had an anterior placenta and was quite overweight as well, which I think probably contributes to not feeling movement so much.

I never felt anything I couldn't prove wasn't wind until I was 24 weeks exactly... and then I saw my stomach moving! The midwifes told me not to worry until 28 weeks smile Hope that helps!! x
