You may also have an anterior placenta (placenta in front of the baby, facing out towards the front of your body) in which case the baby is often kicking the placenta which muffles the feeling and makes it harder to feel. Kind of like the baby kicking a pillow, and then you trying to feel the kick through the pillow on the other side.
Hope you feel it soon! You are still quite early anyway.

My placenta was anterior with my first and it made a huge difference in my ability to feel anything-it was 19 weeks before I recognized movement and probably not until 25 weeks that I could feel anything regularly. With this one, I felt flutters at like 12-13 weeks.
