    My little man moves constantly lol. But not everyone is the same. Might be a couple more weeks til you feel your little girl move more often. Glad all was ok :)

    I'd say I feel about that. Her movement started to become regular at 17 weeks. If I am up and about I don't notice it though. Try lying down, that's when I feel her the most.

    I know my daughter is really active but my uterus is slightly numb so I hardly feel her. It sucks.

    Mine are around my belly button, sometimes lower. The last couple of days he's been bouncing on my bladder like a trampoline lol. He's felt like he's going to fall out a couple of times he's kicked me that hard (felt like has was kicking my cervix lol)

    But I agree, I feel the movements more often when I'm sat or led still. I don't feel them as much when I'm stood or moving around :)

    This is kind of subjective because I was told that a lot of babies don't make consistent movements until 28 weeks. My midwife is going to have me start kick counting at the 28 week mark and it's supposed to be 10 kicks within 2 hours, normally at a time like after eating. Also at 23 weeks, like OP, most of our little girl's movements were in the middle of the night so I wasn't aware to how much she was moving. :)

    My girl seems to move all day long. I don't think she sleeps at all... Feeling it though really depends on what I'm doing. I don't feel her as often when I'm at work unless I'm sitting down. Laying down flat I can feel her the most, but it's not the most comfortable position. I did it for hubby last night and she was moving a ton! I think she may have had the hiccups! They were very regular and strong.. it felt more like her butt hitting my belly than the small pokes like her hands and feet.

    I wouldn't worry about not feeling movement all the time if you aren't used to feeling it all the time yet.

    my lil man definitely kicks and punches me more than 10 times a day, but i am only 23 weeks so he'll probably move less when i get to the point i should be taking notice of them. if your LO doesnt move that much just find an average amount that she does kick and do it by that :thumbup: everyone is different. you could just have a chilled out baby. or if you're doing quite a bit in the day she'll be kept fast asleep by you :)

    You will prob find that you will notice them as your preg progresses.I haven't felt any movement yet but I knownwith my first I didn't until the 22 week Mark and I only felt a couple.It will get more intense as you go on, it's still early days in terms of movement a th mo x

    I didn't think we were really supposed to "kick count" until 28 weeks. Even so, I'm getting kicked way more than 10 times. I've actually started to wonder is there such thing as too much kicking? :shrug:

    I probably feel about 10 or more movements every hour! They've been increasing slowly over the last few weeks though. I feel them mostly just above my belly button and slightly to the side x

    I probably feel at least 10 movements a day but they are very random, no particular pattern. But I am not quite 19 weeks yet.

    As OPs have said, I thought you didn't need to count them until about 28 weeks :shrug:
