Anyone else not crawling?

My little girl was born Sept 15, so she is now a few days past 6 months old.  She doesn't crawl yet, but it looks like she's close, occasionally inching around the carpet like a worm.

My doctor didn't seem concerned at last month's checkup and we have another checkup next week, but now I'm kind of concerned.  Is anyone else not crawling?

She also cannot sit up on her own, but does come close on that as well.

This exactly! She'll kinda scoot backwards,and she can sorta sit. But it also seems like she's not incredibly interested in it yet.

we are not crawling yet either. She's got no interest in it at all. She can sit up on her own, and if she is against the couch she can stand on her own... but any tummy time for more than a minute or so she just gets mad.

I wouldn't worry about it. Babies develop at all different rates, and often in different orders. My son was sitting unsupported for extended periods of time at 5 months, but just started being able to roll both ways last week. Also, my nephew skipped crawling completely and went straight to walking at about 11 months.

crawling will come, and you'll be wishing for the days when your baby stayed still!

My son is over six and a half months and isn't crawling either (though he spends EVERY WAKING MINUTE now - and even minutes he should be sleeping - trying to). He can sit up unsupported for a short while, but not very long, and mostly he moves himself around by rolling all over the place. He's great at moving side to side. Heh.

My son can't crawl, he has in the last week or so started to sit up with very little support. He still has a few face plants on the floor so I put a boppy around him for support. Not worried about the crawling. He makes an attempt, but can't get the back end to work with the front end.

No crawling, just a lot of swimming motions.

No crawling yet here either. At Liam's 6 month check up his doctor said not to worry about it!

nah, not even close, 6 months is pretty early for crawling.

Hm, Lillian hasn't came close yet. She can sit up mostly by herself till she gets to excited "then PLOP". But there is mostly swimming motions when it comes to tummy time, sometime well get the knees under and face in the floor.
