Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Its ok al pregnancies are different if it last longer then when your like 25 weeks then be a little concerned,but for now its okay.
You will feel something soon as in a few weeks. You have nothing to worry about right now.
With my first pregnancy, I didn't feel the baby move until around 17-19 weeks.  And when the baby did move, a lot of times I didn't realize it was her until a little while later b/c it just felt like a deep muscle spasm.  I think once you realize what it actually feels like, it will get easier. Also, the baby is not quite big enough to pack a big punch, but don't worry, as the baby grows he/she will definitely make their presence known :)  I am 31 weeks now, and I felt this baby around 14-15 weeks, and again, even though i had been pregnant once before, sometimes I still wasn't sure it was the baby.  It will happen, I promise, and you will love every hiccup, kick, and nudge :)  Good Luck
