I am 18 weeks. Just started feeling little bumps/kicks last week...I felt them everyday for 4 days, and then today and yesterday- nothing......is this normal?

My doctor told me it was normal and not to worry until 26 weeks then I have to count the movements.

hi erica, i started to feel movement at 19 wks (now 22) and it is on and off - it really freaked me out as i thought once you start feeling them, you should feel them all the time. Apparently its normal to be irregular, don't worry - its after 26-28 weeks when we should check and count them every day. I had a mad kicking 4 days in a row, and last two days almost nothing - the little one must have gotten really tired:)) I found that having some chocolate usually gets the baby going...

Erica at 18 weeks the baby is just too small to be felt consistently; if s/he changes position it's possible to not feel any movement. As PP said, after 26 weeks you should count the movements. Till then, don't worry.
