Hello I'm 16 weeks with my 2nd and I'm feeling a little anxious that I haven't felt the baby move. When did you feel your baby move?

First baby 19 weeks, 2nd and 3rd 17.5 weeks. I wouldn't worry if you haven't felt anything yet the baby has lots of space to hide.

I am currently pregnant with my second child and didn't feel him move until 21 weeks as i have an anterior placenta which i found out at my 20 week scan. Call your midwife if you are worried though.

I was in the same position as you. I always thought you would show earlier and feel baby quicker but I didn't start showing properly until 18 weeks and felt baby for the first time at 20 weeks so don't panic it will come x

First baby 18 weeks. Second baby thanks to an anterior placenta I am only consistently feeling movement now at 28 weeks.

Prior to this I have felt strange tightenings and pressure internally which the midwife explained was muffled movement

First at 18-19 weeks. Second at 17 weeks, but I think that's down to being confident I knew what I was feeling; this one has an anterior placenta but I'm still getting a lot of movement around the edges.
