I am 18 weeks pregnant and still not showing. I also don't feel fetal movement except for indistinct flutters that I can't distinguish from gas. Also, I only feel a lump on my right side and never anywhere else. Is it typical of a baby to prefer one side of the uterus to the other?

Hi,

Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out. I'll suggest consulting a gynecologist and getting an ultrasound of the pelvis done as in view of the symptoms, a possibility of an ectopic pregnancy needs to be ruled out. Please do consult a gynecologist for the same. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.

Trust me it's completely normal. As long as your obstetrician is recording the babies heartbeat at every visit, you should be fine. I am 21 weeks and I just felt the first little kicks of my little prince. I felt them early on in my first pregnancy. Since every pregnancy is different, I can tell you from experience every women feels kicks and punches at a different time during their pregnancy.
