I am now 27 weeks in my pregnancy and still have not felt her move yet. I am getting very nervous and now im laying awake at night wondering if she is ok. Im a little overweight too and I heard it was normal to not feel her at all. I dont know what to do? Someone please give me advice.

I think you ought to consult your Doctor so that he can check
it out - do a scan or whatever examination available as soon as possible to put your mind at rest so that you can
stop being anxious and have peaceful sleep. I wish
you all the best - God bless - Joan

I agree if you're worried call the dr. I hostly dont remember when I started to feel mine. Good luck

Yes I didn't start feeling my daughter move till I was in my third trimester there was nothing wrong she was just content with where she was. I did ask my doctor and he confirmed it that she was fine

I saw at kmart the other day that you can by a heart monitor for your baby so you can hear her/his heartbeat. I know on my first one, I got nervous a lot and if I had seen it, I would of pick it up for reassurance. also if you feel like a burning sensation it might be the baby moving, pulling and streaching the uterus as it moved it doesn't always feel like a kick. Some people are ok with drinking small amounts of caffiene if you are have some then lay on your side, good chance you will feel some movement.

Lye on your left hand side and drink a very cold drink this is usually enough to get them moving! If you are concerned then speak to your midwife.

See your doctor for reassurance.. Some babies don't rock n roll and some do.

I'd say, go see your doc and get her to listen to the heart or do an ultra-sound. Every body/pregnancy is different. So, it might be completely normal for you NOT to feel her move. But, since you ARE worried, go see your doctor.

Could be the positioning of your uterus or the position of the baby, but if I were you.... I'd be going in to make sure everything is ok. The fact that you haven't felt her at all yet is (at least to me) a little less concerning than if you had been feeling her and now you aren't. I'd still want to check it out though. I felt all my kids by/before 20 weeks. I AM skinny though, so I don't know if that makes much of a difference or not.

I would say if your worried go to the doc's they should be about to listen to heart beat, and or send you for an ultra sound.
