There is a broad range of when the first detection of movement can be felt, anything from 13-25 weeks. If you are 17 weeks pregnant and do not feel much movement, it is unlikely that there is any cause for concern. Call your obstetrician or midwife any time you feel concerned about your unborn baby's health and well-being.
