It can be normal. I am 20 weeks yesterday and started feeling little movement at 11 weeks and less than a week ago started feeling my baby kicking harder on the outside. Yesterday I was having severe back pain and not feeling well. My baby didn't start moving until later at night. Mine tends to move more when I am flat on my back or not doing anything.  It could be that baby has positioned itself just right so you can't feel anything. Like I said, yesterday mine was rather quiet. If you're still concerned about it, call your doctor and they can do a variety of tests to make sure baby is ok. I also have a heartbeat monitor I bought at Walmart for $25 and whenever I don't feel my baby I use that to hear the heartbeat and hear him move. He moves a lot and a lot of times I don't feel it. It may not hurt to pick one up or phone the doctor. Good luck and keep us updared.

I just wanted to add that yes, until quite a bit later in pregnancy, the baby can move so that you don't feel movement even after having felt it previously. I have been feeling movement most days for close to a month and haven't felt any for 2 days... I'm in the same boat but also know I had phases like this with my daughter and am trying to stay calm. :)

I think its ok. I know that i didn't think I was feeling the baby move alot but I also realized that I've been doing lots of stuff and I think he was moving when i was walking around and doing stuff so it just didn't feel as strong as it does when you are just chilling on the couch.

I worried over the same thing. I felt her once when I was 19 weeks, and it took until my 22 week until I felt her again.

I worry too.... I'm 23 weeks and normally only feel her a little in the morning and in the evening when I'm in bed. I sit at a desk all day for work wondering how this child sleeps so much lol. I'm just ready to feel constant movement. I suppose they still have a lot of room to move about?
