I am 20 weeks pregnant with my second child and have not felt my baby move. She was moving a lot when I had my ultrasound.

(please dont be offended) are you a curvy girl? It sometimes takes longer for larger women to feel movement.

I am 21 weeks as of tomorrow, I feel the little butterflies and some movement but I can't feel it on the outside, oh by the way, the movement is not constant. Some days I will feel it and others I wont. If you lay down flat on your back and push on your tummy a little you might be able to feel some movement, it just feels like butterflies....congrats on the new baby, this is also my second

Hey! I was around 21-22 weeks, but got all the butterfly feeling alot earlier. I was in Cyprus on holiday and me and my partner were layin in bed and all of a sudden i felt this kick and from then on in it was constant! What an amazing feelin it was. I would say a couple more weeks. Did you find out the sex?? Good Luck with it all!

You should be able to feel your baby move pretty soon. I think I was between 20 and 23 weeks when I finally felt my son. Don't get worried if it takes another week or so. Take about 10 minutes and lie down on the couch or your bed and read a book or watch a little TV just to distract yourself a little. Sometimes they do it when you least expect it. It feels like a flutter at first, all around your stomach. After another week or so it will feel like there's an alien in your body.. It's a great experience though. Hope yours moves for you soon!
