19 Weeks Pregnant - Concerned
Hi All

I am 19 weeks pregnant. My concern is that my tummy somehow feels different. Can't explain this other than I feel "lighter" than I did a few days ago (which the scale does not agree with). The flutterings I have a few and far between - so much so I am starting to doubt whether I have actually felt the baby move yet? As I am a first time expectant mother I would appreciate any feedback as I don't like not being in the know and don't like to over re-act!

It is still fairly early for fetal movements. The light flutterings are all you will feel at this stage.

Best wishes
