16 weeks and feeling nothing

Hi Mummies, Please advise as I am little worried. I am 16 weeks pregnant but I don’t feel any movement. This is worrying me as I have read that you can start feeling some movements in 16th week of pregnancy. Is this normal? #firsttimemom #firstbaby

Hello, don’t fret! I’m a FTM too and only felt some fluttering around 16w4d. But obvious movements were only felt from 19w onwards. It differs for every individual but you should feel baby’s movements by 22w. Hang in there, you will feel baby move soon! :)

Thank you :)

I am at 23 weeks and still feeling nothing 😅 my gyane checks all normal and baby moving quite a bit on ultrasound. I guess it depends on how sensitive mummies are to such movements too? anyways not to worry too much if your check ups are fine so far.

Yeah checks have been fine so far

Hi, it is possible to feel movement but not all mummies feel it at this point. More commonly, people feel movement only at 20 weeks onwards. I only felt mine at 19 weeks. So don’t worry. The movements will come.
