No - not feeling your baby move at 18 weeks is completely normal. Certain factors make not feeling movement more likely - such as a placenta that is on the anterior surface of the utuers making the baby essentially have to kick thru a pillow, first pregnancies, and fetal position. I tell all my moms not to try and "count" the babie's movements until ateast 30 or 31 weeks as they may not be completely regular until that gestational age.
