We're Baaaack!!

We're back from camp. Super fun, super exhausting week. I got in trouble constantly for doing too much by all the others I was working with. I really did do too much though. I moved two bunk beds in the cabin pretty much completely by myself. I wrapped in pain the next day. I got very little sleep. I hardly ever sat down. Not good. I feel okay about it though now, b/c I did feel the baby move after I had done it all.

I noticed that I'm not feeling baby much now. It kinda worries me. I've noticed that even on ultrasound this one isn't nearly as active as DS was. When do we really start feeling strong kicks and stuff? I was already feeling it at this point w/ DS.

I've only felt the baby move once or twice so far. Maybe you just keep catching the baby on the ultrasound during it's sleepy time? The one u/s tech told us that the baby has periods of activity and inactivity.

But maybe check in with your doc if it's really bothering you.

I haven't really felt the baby much either and I'm at 18 weeks now. I'm wondering if I have an anterior placenta again which was the case with my DS. A few women in my prenatal yoga class said they weren't really feeling much movement/kicks until the 22nd-23rd week.

With my other 3 kids I rarely felt them most of my pregnancies. This pregnancy I have felt the baby multiple times. Some days I dont feel her at all some days I feel her alot. It just varies on how the baby is and how the placenta is and everything.

Roxi, I asked Dr and she said it was normal for baby not to move a whole lot like my son did.

Amy, does placenta placement matter that much on how much movement is felt? My placenta is anterior for sure.

Yes, an anterior placenta acts like a cushion between you and the baby. Generally with an anterior placenta you wont feel the baby as soon or as often. I still felt movement with my last pregnancy, but didn't see body parts moving across the outside of my belly or anything like that. I guess I'll find out tomorrow if my placenta is anterior again (I have my anatomy scan!).
