Dr Owen :

Hello

Dr Owen :

Well at 17 weeks - you really are not going to feel the baby move all that often

Dr Owen :

Not until about 24 to 28 weeks do you start to feel the baby move more often.

Dr Owen :

So, it is okay that you have not felt the baby move

Dr Owen :

I would suggest drinking plenty of water and see if you can get the baby to move at bit - but honestly at 17 weeks it is sometimes very hard to actually feel a baby move.

Dr Owen :

I wish you well
