Hi :) I'm 21 weeks pregnant with my first child. My doctor said I should start feeling movement a couple weeks ago but haven't felt anything yet. Should I be worried?

My Sister is on her 4th pregnancy and didnt feel her baby move until she was in the beginning of her 6th month. Every pregnancy is different, nothing to worry about if a heart beat is being heard at your appointments. :)
Me on the other hand. Im 22 weeks as of today (4th baby) and have felt the three youngest move end of my third months. the feeling was very light on the inside below my belly button, like little taps. now can be felt with my hand on my belly:)
Hope this helps, and when the times comes, itll be so amazing and beautiful! youll love feeling the movements every time! :D Congrats on your pregnancy!

I feel my baby now almost every day and I'm 18 weeks. It started around 17 weeks... It doesn't really feel like kicking, just a light fluttering. Actually I thought it was just gas (feels pretty similar to gas bubbles LOL) and lord knows pregnant ladies are gassy but then I realized what it really was and I got pretty excited!

It's different for every woman and every baby! I started feeling my daughter at 12 weeks, and started feeling actual kicks and jabs at about 21 weeks.
I had a few people tell me that it was impossible to feel the baby at 12 weeks, but my midwife confirmed that it was the baby.
I wouldn't be worried, there are women who never even know they are pregnant until birth!
