@roxy821:  When I was pregnant with DS I didn’t feel him move much at all. I ended up in the hospital a few times to be monitored do to the lack of movement. He just wasn’t very active and when he did move I didn’t feel it. I only started seeing him move towards the end of pregnancy. When you feel movement and the amount you feel is different for everyone. With this LO I felt flutters at 9 weeks and now I’m feeling a decent amount of movement everyday. It’s all new to me though because I did not feel it with DS.

Anterior placenta! As you know, I felt him before 20 weeks, but then not for almost a month after that due to the anterior placenta. Now, since last Saturday I’m feeling him daily (the bubbles) and even have felt the first few kicks. I bet you’ll feel her in the next few weeks. I know how aggravating it is, though! I have a co-worker who didn’t feel her little girl for 28 weeks (anterior placenta), but most women are well before that. So I bet in the next few weeks, you will feel her move. πŸ™‚

It took me a long time to feel Addie, too; like @Jenn23:  I had an anterior placenta with her, too.  Don’t worry!  Maybe you lucked out and you’ll have an easy, calm baby!  πŸ™‚

@roxy821:  It took me quite a while to feel my baby girl as well. It’s also my first so I was always unsure if she was kicking or not. I was past my 20 week ultrasound when I could actually feel her regularly, not sure exactly when it was. I was getting worried as well but like you, we knew everything was ok! My husband didn’t get to feel her kick until after about 25 weeks I think.

I have anterior placenta as well, and didn’t feel my little guy very frequently until almost 24 weeks. Now that I’m 29 weeks, it’s like he’s in a jungle gym- kick kick punch punch all the time. πŸ™‚ Try not to worry, you’ll soon be feeling tons of movement!
