Feeling Baby's movements?

I'm now 19 weeks along, and I've just started to feel the baby move over the last week. But how much movement should there be? I've felt it a few times each day, but it's not at regular times or anything. Should I be nervous if I don't feel anything for a day? How often does everyone else feel their baby move? Tanya

From my understanding, feeling it every now and then is perfectly normal. I feel the baby *maybe* a few small times a day, if I even feel it that day. My doctor said that it will gradually get more frequent as the baby gets bigger. I also have extra "padding" being overweight, so not feeling constant movement is normal, too. I don't think it's anything to worry about.

Sometimes I feel it a lot and other times I won't feel the baby all day. It is very sporadic right now.

They sometimes say that with each baby you feel it sooner. My 4th baby I felt for sure and pretty consistent by 12 weeks! But this baby left me hanging until about 17.5 weeks. I'm just now feeling it several times a day [19wks] and they're still a bit light. They're all just different, before long you'll be feeling those strong ones in the ribs!

I'm starting to feel them more and more, probably about 10 times a day at least. Its mostly in the evening ( 4pm till bedtime) I'll feel some here and there in the morning and afternoon, but not all that much

It also makes a difference where your placenta is. If its attached to the back you might feel sooner and more frequently. If its attached to the front it may take longer to feel those kicks. ;)

It's hard with your first pregnancy because you're not quite sure what you're looking for in the beginning. Trust me, the further along you get, the more you're going to feel your little one. You might even come to a point when you're wishing the baby would just stay still because their kicks start to hurt. Even though I felt this one much earlier than I did with my first, it's not on a regular basis yet. Every pregnancy and every baby is different.

Movements can be very irregular. One day I could feel Adam move a LOT and other days I am lucky to feel him move once. I find that he is on some sort of a schedule now with 5 am and 12-1 pm being two of the times where I feel him most every day. But I never felt him move much until after I hit 20 weeks. Before then it was very sporadic. The other day I was worried because I hadn't felt
