hi ell, i just had the same concern. I will be 16 weeks pregnant at the end of this week. And i have not felt my baby's kicks yet. I am so worried as most of my mates told me that i should be feeling the butterflies already. I have not even been 2 the gynae yet 2 check 4 a heartbeat. But if its your first pregnancy, you shouldn't worry too much. I am sure all should be fine. Meanwhile i am holding tight for my first appointment on 22nd of this month. Ang

Its nothing to worry about Ell. Baby is moving already but yoou cannot feel it yet. Is it your 1st pregnancy? usually in a 1st pregnancy you can only feel baby move from your 20-23 week. Some ladies feel quickenings from 17weeks (or so pregnancy weekly say) I felt my peanut move on 17weeks already.
As long as baby's heartbeat is fine you dont have to worry. He/ she will make their presence knon soon:-D
