No Movement?

I am 19 weeks pregnant. I had suspected that I felt baby off and on before week 16. From week 16-17.5 ish I think it was daily ... but in the last week and a half I've barely felt anything. It's back to the ... "was that it?!?" feeling. I'm starting to freak out ... anyone else feel like this. Has anyone else experienced this?

yep! i felt more consistent flutters from week 14-16, and then almost nothing from 16-19. i was convinced they wouldn't find the baby's heart beat at my 18 week appointment (they found it easily), and i was shocked to see the baby moving around at my ultrasound a few days later (i had decided the baby was alive but paralyzed...i know, i'm crazy). apparently, everything is fine! toward the end of week 19 i started feeilng little movements daily again, and just this week (week 20) i am feeling actual kicks and jabs. it's so reassuring, but happened so much later than it did during my first pregnancy!

Oh that's SO reassuring!! I've had the same thoughts. My ultrasound is a week from tomorrow -- Not much longer to wait.

It's amazing how quickly things can change. Just last Monday at 20 weeks 4 days I was barely feeling movement and now one week later I'm feeling movement (kicks & jabs) throughout the day. It was almost as if things changed overnight.
