Hi! I'm 18 weeks pregnant and don't think I've felt any movements yet! Is that normal?! I do have a little bump but can't feel a thing from the baby! Just checking it's not abnormal! Thanks

Didn't feel anything until 20weeks!

I was over 22 weeks before I felt anything at all.

Most women start to feel movements between 16 and 24 weeks so you've got plenty time before you need to start worrying.

Thank you! It seems like the first questions people ask me at the moment is is 'have you felt the baby move yet?' Which makes me worry I should have felt it! I'm a FTM mum so this is all new to me! Thanks for the replies ๐Ÿ˜Š

Absolutely normal.

The questions and comments in pregnancy can be quite peculiar, but most people are just trying to make conversation, try to let them slide (easier said than done, I know. The questions on body shape/bump size/coffee intake drive me up the wall... I am still learning to nod and smile ๐Ÿ˜ฌ)

I'm a FTM and I felt my baby around 18 weeks. But my lil man is always right at the front of my tummy and not tucked away so I feel everything.
Most FTM's don't feel anything until 24 weeks plus. My friend didn't feel her little girl until gone 26 wks and she was fine ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
Don't worry too much โค๏ธ
