20 weeks and haven't felt my baby move

Should I be worried?

Iv always carries a bit of extra weight on my stomach and even now my bump looks a bit bigger than it actually is. Does that make a difference to feeling any movement?

My last scan was a 3D scan nearly 4 weeks ago and everything seemed ok. Would I have any signs if anything was wrong?

Thanks biscuit

Did they tell you where your placenta was? It's normal not to feel anything until 22+ weeks, maybe more if you have an anterior placenta.

Fyi the emoji you used is a biscuit and is usually used to indicate you think a poster is a bit of a twat. 😂

Can you remember if your placenta was anterior? This made a difference for me this time round didn't feel anything till about 23 weeks and it's my 3rd baby.

Even if it's not an anterior placenta I don't think 20 weeks is that far along not to feel kicks. Its such a worrying time being pregnant isn't it!

I didnt feel definite movements until around 24 weeks. Im quite petite and had a small bump

DueOct30th Wed 17-May-17 21:41:06 This site gives a lot of good info on movements etc

I only felt movements after my 20 week scan, I think all the prodding woke her up a bit! So about 20+5. I'm 29 weeks now and it's constant, I miss the little flutters from early on! I wouldn't be too concerned this early but do call your midwife if it's on your mind as stress can be bad for your blood pressure x

It can depend a lot on where your placenta is. My first I felt at 17 weeks but the other two were over 22 weeks before I felt them move.

I'm 20+4 with my first pregnancy and haven't felt anything yet (although I felt a few dull thuds tonight followed by a pop sensation - which I'm hoping might be movement. I don't know what I'm looking for so it's hard to know).

A few friends told me they didn't really anything until 21/22 weeks. It's frustrating but don't worry yet, it's normal.

Try not to worry too much... Lots of people don't feel it til 20 weeks plus. I only just started feeling something and I am 19 weeks with my 2nd. Felt it earlier with my first .

Love the fact you gave yourself a biscuit 😂

Totally normal, I felt movement with DD at 21 weeks and this pregnancy I started feeling it properly at 19 weeks. I've had two anterior placentas and I bet you do too. But even if not it's still well within normal to not have felt movement yet, especially with a first baby.

DS1 - 23 weeks before that little monkey moved!

DS2 - little flutters from 15 weeks but nothing consistent until 20 weeks

DS3 - have only started getting flutters this week at 21 weeks

All my placentas have been anterior so that muffles movement.

Try not to worry - soon you'll be feeling movements but it might be a couple of weeks yet.

Its my first and I didnt feel movement until 21/22 weeks. So I think its quite normal, I wouldnt worry. My midwife told me she'd expect it by my 25 week appt so that put my mind at ease.

Omg... that's hilarious I thought it was a flower 😂🙈

dede124 Thu 18-May-17 09:58:08

Thanks everyone made me feel a bit better. Hopefully will be soon... I can't wait to feel her move all I can feel is trapped wind 😩 😂 😒

It might not actually be trapped wind, might be her, they're pretty similar to start with
