In brief: Yes.
At the beginning of quickening sensations (~ 20 weeks), sporadic fetal movements are normal and nothing to worry about.

In brief: Yes
Most women feel "quickening" or the baby moving for the first time between 15 and 20 weeks.
It is not expected that you feel your baby move regularly until around 28 weeks.
