Hi,
All my kids hated tummy time too(I would not like lying on my tummy w/my face in the floor either....lol).
If you lay her on her tummy,on your arm(like a airplane) does she lift her head and move around or is she floppy?
If she is floppy,and not lifting her head she may have low muscle tone(my youngest son does),if she lifts her head and flails around she is probably fine :)

i wouldnt worry about it. my son never liked being on his tummy either. But eventually he started rolling over while being on his back. It took a lot of practice, i started letting him practice while laying on the bed with him because it had more give. id get him all excited and tell him to come get mommy and he'd roll toward me from being on his back. Then after he started doing it on the floor. Some babies just dont learn as quick as others. i personally wouldnt be so worried about it, as long as shes doing everything else fine, and thats the only thing. Id just give her a little time. A friend of mine, her daughter never craweled or even showed signs of crawling til she was a year old. and she walked holding onto things til she was like 13 or 14 months. But she is such a smart little girl when it comes to other things. All i can say is just give it time. Goodluck with your little girl though! and i hope i helped out a little. :)

First of all, don't worry. As most moms will tell you, each milestone is different for each child. If anything arises, the doctor is good to work with you on it. No one child fits in the same schedule another child has. Enjoy your little one!

My first born never rolled over. Ok he did it once at 3 months on accident but never again. He would scream bloody murder if put on his belly. He never crawled either. He liked to sit up and play with his toys. He started to cruse at about 10 -11 months and he started to walk one week before his first birthday. He was just content to not move for the first 12 months. So I would not worry. I know it is hard when the other babies start to rollover and crawl but they are all different. If you say she sits up then she has muscle control. I used to put blocks in front of him he would still cry and scream until I would sit him up. Then he would happily play with his blocks.

some babies just dont feel comfortable on their stomachs. my first did the same thing. he always wanted to be on his back. when i did put him on his stomach he would pitch a fit, but wouldn't roll over. he never crawled either, just kind of drug himself around until he started walking. i wouldn't worry about it.
