I’m 15 weeks + 1 day and have not felt my baby move yet. I am classed as “obese” so wonder if this will make a difference? But people keep asking if i’ve felt anything yet and i’m a little worried. I think it’s natural to worry between scans and worry in case anything has happened to the baby? Just wondered when you all felt your baby move?
Like Darkstar4855 says. And if, like her, you have an anterior placenta you might not feel much at all. Also, some babies move a LOT more than others. My 1st one was like a bag of monkeys, all the time. But my 2nd one was snuggled up asleep most of the time, barely felt him at all.
I'm average build and currently 17 weeks pregnant with my 4th but I haven't felt anything definite yet.
It's definitely natural to worry, but try not to, it won't help...
15 weeks is early for a first pregnancy. I think I felt my first around 18 weeks, second at around 14 weeks and currently pregnant with my third who is currently having a good old wriggle (I’m just coming up to 20 weeks) and have been feeling him from 16 weeks ish.
Currently 19 weeks and have felt what I think in the odd bump, usually late evening and really low down, which would make sense as that's where the MW found he/she when trying to listen for a heartbeat at 16 weeks. Just wishing there was a bit more umph to the bumps as that would be a bit more reassuring x
At 17 weeks I had what I now know to have been flutters. Thought it was just wind at the time. Around 19 weeks I started thinking ‘hmmm, is that baby?’ By 20 weeks I knew it definitely was baby. Now at 22 weeks husband has finally felt the odd kick too. At 15 weeks I was still feeling rubbish which was the only reason I knew I was still pregnant!
I'm in my 21st week with my first and I haven't felt any movement yet but the leaflet my midwife gave me said it can be up to 24 weeks so I'm not worried. I'm a healthy BMI so I don't think your weight makes a difference.
At my 20 week scan my baby was doing headstands, bicycle kicks and even clenched its fists at the sonographer, it was very funny. She told me to brace myself as little one is very active!
I have anterior placenta and didn't feel baby move until 24 weeks. I ended up paying for a private scan as got myself worried so try not to worry like I did. I'm now 37 weeks and feel baby move all the time. I was the high end of overweight starting the pregnancy and will likely be obese now as have ballooned and it isn't affecting me feeling movements xx
Felt the odd 'maybe that was something but could be wind' at about 18 weeks, but it was really after 20 weeks for me, 23 when I could say for definite they were kicks. That was with a BMI of 35 and an anterior placenta.
