    15 wks is still pretty early for a second baby. I felt my second at the end of the 15th week and then more regularly from about a week later. With my 3rd is was even later - 17 wks before I got definite movement and more like 20 for it to be regular. The position of your placenta can be a factor :)

    Do you know if your placenta is anterior or post? That has so much to do with it...I would say any time now though!

    hi hun. I agree with mamato2more, do you know what position your placenta is in?? I had an anterior placenta with my 2nd boy and didnt feel anything till 20 weeks!! it really does make a difference!

    i was expecting it much sooner!! this time round im not sure if i have anterior placenta again but i havent felt much at all so far, again i was expecting to have felt something definate by now as im nearly 17 weeks, but i think i have an anterior again, will find out at our scan on 3rd Jan :) :)

    try not to worry hun (but i know what its like as im the worlds biggest worrier lol!!) xxxx

    I felt my 2nd one around 13 weeks, but that was only little flutter then felt him moving properly around 16 weeks ish......with my youngest and this one I felt them moving quite late, around 18 or 19 weeks properly, I think on this one I have an anterior placenta, never had that on my youngest, so guess he was just lazy to start off with lol..... I wouldnt could be possible you wont feel anything for a few more weeks, but then you might feel something in the next few days......

    im 18 weeks with my 2nd and havent felt any movement yet and my placenta is fundal (at the top) had a scan a week ago so i no the baby is still in there lol!! but not giving me anything yet!! I felt my first movements at about 17 weeks with my son so this one must be a lazy girl like its mummy!!
