I haven't felt baby yet either. I'm hoping its soon but won't be surprised if its not before 17 wks. So many others are and seemed like did so early it seems like we should have but it's totally normal. It won't be long though...we are getting there. Smile

I JUST felt baby 2 nights ago for the first time! It was only a few tiny wiggles, but it was still exciting. And I am almost 19 weeks, so no worries!

16 weeks is so early. I know you're a worrier Patience, but try not to let it get to you. Perhaps see if you can borrow a doppler from a friend, or rent one.

I haven't felt mine yet either. I usually don't until sometime in the 17th week. I'm ALMOST there!

I'm trying to remember when I felt Lucas... I know it was in Red Lobster for FIL birthday (and that I was still sick enough that I was fighting back the urge to hurl all over the table at the smell of seafood!). I have to look on a calendar!

Ok, I just counted it out and I felt him at 15 weeks which was very early. I think Tori was later, around 18 weeks.

Obviously nothing so far this time. I have twinges from time to time but I don't think it's actual movement.

With my other babes, I never felt anything until at least 20 weeks.

Remember your baby is only the size of an avocado right now!

LOL, so true, but I feel like I should be able to feel an avocado inside my uterus! Smile

Haha. Yeah. I've got a big bell pepper sized baby inside, and I dont' feel it much. Just think of all the other stuff in there!

It's funny to think that our bellies sticking out right now aren't even "baby". They are all the other insides that are being shoved up! The top of my uterus is still below my belly button.

Yes, my insides and all the added fat and fluid. I've gained 18 pounds so far... and yet baby doesn't even weigh a pound yet. "sigh" At least baby has quite a cushy little home!! Smile

I felt some of my best kicks ever today, so it's probably going to be soon for your ladies. My placenta was in the front with DD so I think that helped mask her early movements.

Yep, I feel nothing, too. Pretty excited to start feeling something though. I have been feeling so great that I want there to be something to remind me that I am PG! lol

So true! My DH (being the sensitive sweetheart he is...) says "Whoa your belly is starting to round out. Too bad it's probably all food." True but ouch DH. Lol.

I have not felt baby yet either, and this is my 4th pregnancy. I was always told you feel them sooner when its your second or more pregnancy, but this has never been the case for me.

I hav heard that too. This is my third and I felt it the later than my other two, and this one doesn't seem as active as early.

I finally found DS's baby book and it was 18 weeks when I felt baby. SO I feel tons better, which after this weekend was MUCH needed. Though I'd feel even better if I could feel baby!

That's good news girl. Depending on where your placenta is this time, that can affect it. Smile

Yes, Heather has a good point...lots of things can affect when you feel baby. I'm glad you are feeling better after finding DS's info and hope you start to feel those little movements soon. Smile

I JUST started feeling movement the last couple days... so it was 1 day shy of 17 weeks this time for me... right in the middle of my "range" which has been 16 -18 weeks! Hang in there. It should be soon Patience!
