I agree, you're a bit early for the flutters, and like others said, it is probably related to placenta position.  If its on the front you won't feel them near as early.  Mine is on the back so I felt them super early with both my pregnancies.  I wouldn't worry too much yet, some move more than others at the early stages.

I actually didn't feel my second baby as early as my first, it does depend a lot not only on the baby but as a previous poster said the position of your placenta, your midwife or doc should be able to find the heartbeat for you to ease your thoughts a little.

You may have an anterior (frontal) placenta. I didn't feel my 4th til 17wks because I had one. 16wks is still early.
I hired a doppler with my last pregnancy. I loved having the reassurance of hearing baby's hb.
