Default 17 1/2 weeks and feeling nothing!

I am now 17 1/2 weeks along and I don't feel any movement from my little guy. I MAY have felt something once or twice when I lay down at night, but I have been pushing in a bit to see if something pushes back at me. I probably shouldn't even be pushing on him, but I am just so eager to feel. Although I think I may have felt him, I can't be sure.

Anyone else not feeling anything at this point????

I feel my little one, but don't worry, many people don't feel the baby for a few weeks yet.

Some of my books actually suggest pushing on him, I think they say, just don't push hard enough to hurt yourself, because there is no way you're going to hurt the baby.

It's normal not to feel anything until about 20 weeks or so, especially if this is your first baby. Some people feel things sooner than others, but I'm sure you have nothing to worry about! Especially since you think you felt him, it's a good possibility that you did!

When I had my first daughter I didn't feel her move until almost 25 weeks along. When I went to the 20 week sonogram we saw her flipping all around, moving her hands, grabbing her feet, and the tech kept saying "You don't feel that?" I honestly didn't feel anything. I think it's normal if this is your first.
