    I am 20 weeks and only felt baby move for the last three days, but have felt nothing today. Should I be worried or Is it just because its early.

    You could try drinking a very very cold glass of water and lying still for 15 mins or so. :thumbup:

    This is something my midwife told me to do if I didn't fell any movement for a while, but I have a placenta at the front so I still don't feel an awful lot at 24 weeks !!!

    If you've still not felt anything by tomorrow ring your midwife to see if she could suggest anything else. :hugs:

    The babies still quite small so u cud feel movement in one position, then bubs cud bounce n roll around and not feel it in another...I panicked at 1st cuz I thought exactly the same today is the 1st time ive been feeling it all day, as bubs gets bigger movement will get stronger...dont panic!!!xxxxxxx

    i agree youll not feel regular movements til further on im 23 wks +1 and last few days started feeling baby everyday. baby is still extremely small. measure 20 cm on a ruler you get an image of just how small your baby is around. x

    I dont think your overreacting, your just very in tune with your body!!:flower: I was just the same, and would run to the doppler but soon when the baby gets bigger and their kicking loads you will feel alot more relaxed!!
