    Default No movement

    Has anyone NOT felt movement with a 2nd or more pregnancy? I swear I felt some movement right about 16.5 weeks (my "flutterbudget" post) but none since then. I am just over 18 weeks and for the past week I have taken time every day to sit/lay quietly for about 20 minutes several times a day to see if I can feel any wiggles. And nothing.

    Has anyone not felt movement with later kids pregnancies and had it be fine at this point? I just know that my last few I felt movement very early--14-15 weeks along.

    I got paranoid enough that I called to make a quick fetal heartbeat appt later today. But I still have to wait about 3 hours and I know I'm just going to get more nervous until then.

    ETA: As you can see by my signature I have 4 kids already, so I'm pretty schooled in how this is supposed to feel. I guess I'm just so nervous because I've also had 4 losses--but all early between 5-12 weeks.

    I'm 19 weeks and only started feeling movement 3 days ago. I didn't get any flutters or anything till then, and it's my second baby. I felt my first at 16 weeks so I think the position of this one, or the placenta is different. I have a doppler and I knew it was ok, which was good or I'd have been worrying. Could you borrow one? Also, I felt movement 2 days in a row and then nothing the last 2 days, but heartbeat is in the mid 160s so all ok I'd try not to worry I think it is still early and might just be in a different place to your other babies.

    Ok, that makes me feels so much better. I hope that it is just positioning, etc. I don't know anyone who has a doppler but my nurse said they can do a fetal heart tone check--no appointment fee--so I go in at 12:50. It is still 2 hours from now and I have to take 3 kids with me (my younger 2 boys and my niece that I have for the week), but its worth it just for my peace of mind.

    First off big HUGS. It's always scary when you don't feel movement. I completely agree that it would be the placement of the baby or the placenta. Since you have most things you need from your other children could you possibly look into getting a doppler? They run about 50 to 100 depending on the one you want to get and usually is worth the money for your piece of mind. Plus ordering a doppler must be a 1000x easier then packing up 3 little ones and headed to the doctors. Keep us posted!

    Do you know where your placenta is? (Anterior or Posterior)
    With my first 2 I had anterior and never felt a lot of movement at all (my DH could never feel the movements with either of them)- but my last one (and this one) I have posterior, and felt a lot more with him - it makes a big difference!

    I went in and all was well! It did take her a minute to locate the h/b so I suspect the placenta is in front which is making it harder for me to feel. But I tell you, that full 60+ seconds it took to find the h/b made me so scared!

    Hopefully I'll feel more of those little flutters soon! And in just over 2 weeks, we'll know gender!

    Glad you were able to get some reassurance today. I'm only now feeling intermittent movement that I know for sure is baby but it will be interesting to see (or feel I guess) how the movement of this baby compares to my previous pregnancy.

    It is so interesting to compare differences in pregnancies! I agree. So far I still feel nothing--at almost 19 weeks, which is just nuts to me! My last 2 boys were so active that they were all over the place by 16--early movements at 14/15. Maybe I can hold onto hope for a girl????
