Don't feel bad about not feeling your LO.

It has been a long time and I may be wrong but with all 5 of my boys I swear I felt defeant movement right around 14 weeks. I am much fluffier this time but at 17 1/2 weeks I am just feeling flutters every once in awhile. I have always heard it not uncommon to be 20 +weeks or so am trying not to freak out. If you are hearing the heartbeat that far more important and you may just have a calm baby in there.

You could try a high sugar orange drink or some chocolate to try and wake baby up, tbh as long as you can hear hb i wouldn't worry.

I have a friend who is pregnant with her 6th baby and she is 24 weeks and hasn't felt the baby move yet. I think a lot of it has to do with the position of your uterus, the baby, and the placenta. Thank goodness for that doppler, right?? I think as long as you're still picking up a HB, you're good to go! Hopefully you'll start feeling your little one soon!

Oh Katie don't tell me that I was hoping for more than random flutters soon but hearing your friend is also on her 6th and not even feeling baby at 24 weeks is depressing.
