No: As the baby grows it becomes easier to feel movement. You are usually farther along in your pregnancy with your first baby before you even feel movement than with subsequent babies and some babies move more than others. The concern is if you feel a decrease in movement compared to what you have been feeling. Best wishes to you both.
