    Default Still haven't felt my baby kick...

    Hi everyone,
    I'm new to this forum but I am 22.5 weeks and still have not felt my baby kick....
    I think I felt her last week- a few flutters up high in my tummy, but nothing since?
    My sister in law is 4 weeks behind me and has been feeling it for weeks.

    This is my first pregnancy so if anyone can shed some light I would really appreciate it :-)

    Jen

    Sometimes the position of your placenta can stop you from feeling kicks.

    I also found with my first pregnancy I felt kicks a lot later than I did with subsequent pregnancies.

    I think 22 weeks is still normal to have not felt it on a first pregnancy. Do you know the position of your placenta? That is also another cause for not feeling/feeling late. My friend is 16 weeks and still hasn't felt anything yet either. I'm sure it'll happen soon

    I felt kicks later when pregnant with DS2 and it was due to the position of my placenta (anterior).

    I had an anterior placenta for my 1st too, and first felt bub at 23 weeks. Hope it won't be too long for you. It was worth the wait!

    My last pregnancy was anterior and no kicks were felt until 26 weeks. I had an ultrasound at 24 weeks and saw this baby doing gymnastic movements and I couldn't feel a thing!!

    For number 1 I had a posteria placenta and felt around 17 weeks so was fully expecting to feel bub number 2 earlier, I started stressing out that I hadn't felt her at 18 weeks until I found out I had an anterior placenta. I felt her move at 19 weeks only because I knew what to expect and it was at my scan and I saw her kick and felt it at the same time
