When first feeling the baby can you days without feeling anything?

I have started feeling my second baby at 18 weeks - but today, for example, have felt nothing.

I can't remember from my first pregnancy whether this is normal and if it's only later on you feel the baby every day?

Yes I think its normal, because they are so small. I've had 4 and pretty sure that's right if my memory serves me correctly!

I am on 2nd pregnancy too and I think this is normal. In fact I didn't feel any movement either pregnancy until about 22 weeks!!! They say you are supposed to feel it earlier in 2nd pregnancy but not true in my case. However if you are worried about anything it is better to go get checked out at the hospital - they can listen to baby's heartbeat and reassure you everything is OK.

I think you can. But my advice is always if you are worried get checked out asap.

Yes, normal. I started feeling movements from 12 weeks with this one but only now consistently at 20+1. At 18 weeks I'd go sometimes 1 or 2 days not feeling anything. Try not to worry.

I'm on my 2nd and yes that sounds normal and what's happened with me. Felt regular little flutters from 14wks and eventually bigger kicks at 16wks. Between 16-22wks there were some times I wouldn't feel anything for 2 or more days! Am now 32wks+2 and our little ds is kicking like mad everyday! grin
