How much movement is normal

At 18 weeks?

This is my second pregnancy but I can't really remember much in detail.

I have felt odd very faint flutters, popping sensations and prodding. Usually once or twice a day, though sometimes a can go a whole day without really feeling anything.

This has been since about 15 weeks.

Normal?

That's great at 18 weeks! I was only feeling that at around 20 weeks with my twins then proper kicks at 23 weeks!

Third pregnancy here & ive forgotten too 😁

I'm nearly 21 weeks and only really been feeling proper movement over the last week. Usually only a couple of times a day.

From what my midwife told me there isn't a 'normal' amount of movement, it's only a worry if your movement patten slows down, and she said they wouldn't worry about this until after 24 weeks.

I have an anterior placenta this time though which is probably cushioning some movement.
