I'd still give it some time to get consistant.

I think its pretty normal. I am 18 weeks today. Last week I was feeling our little girl lots and she was kicking pretty hard, to the point DH was feeling her. Well the last couple of days she's been very quiet and I might get a couple of tiny taps a day. This morning I decided to get my doppler out and check on her. I found her heart beat but it seemed like it was in the distance, it was very quiet and I had a hard time really picking it up. I'm guessing she is more towards my back right now and that's why it was hard to pick up her HB really strong and why I haven't been feeling her much.

I have pretty inconsistent fetal movement right now, but I really do think it will be a few weeks more before we can count on consistent motion. Also, my doctor mentioned that one of my placentas is in front, which can reduce the sensation especially early on.

Wait to u hit week 21. I know everyone is different, but it seems like my little man is on a schedule. Then he gets in the corner..really really low and ball his body up. It hurts but nice for DH because he can feel and know where the baby is and move him with his hand.

Congrats on your pregnancy!

I'm 17w 2d, and from 13 weeks I'd been feeling the Tummy pretty regularly -- every other day at least.

I'm 21 weeks tomorrow. Starting about 2 weeks ago I started feeling more consistent movement, like pretty much every hour or so. Often times it's a low shifting feeling and a bulging out in my lower abdomen but I have been also feeling some quick kicks higher lately starting this week too.
