As my subject suggest I am 17 weeks 2 days pregnant and I am very scared and worried all the time so far. This is my first baby so everything is new to me.
I am just worried that I can't feel movements or kicks or flutters? I am worried that I am doing everything wrong and they are not happy in there? Please say I am not alone and there are other first time mums who feel or felt this way??
Thanks for reading x

I think it's normal to feel that way 1st time round.

I would suggest doing something to make you feel good, like go for a walk or go swimming. When I was pregnant with my first I tried to do those things and it really helped a lot.

It's also very normal to not feel movements at 17 weeks, especially in a first pregnancy- and normal not to have a pattern to them until around week 28 x
