Fetal movement: Probably not. At that gestation, movements are not as forceful ; you are not expected to feel all of them. When you are distracted by work, telephone calls, other children, etc, you are less likely to feel the majority of movements. If you note that you haven't felt the baby moving, take a few minutes, or an hour ; concentrate just on movement ; most likely you will feel it. If not call your dr.

Usually not: What you are probably feeling are random movements from the baby, or possibly hiccups. Both are very common and normal.

No: It is normal for movement to be very sporadic at that age. More so if your first baby.
