    Default How much movement are you feeling?

    I am 20 weeks today and feeling VERY limited movement. I might feel a very light flutter once or twice per day. I'm sure I remember feeling much more movement than that with my other two.

    Do you know if your placenta is anterior or posterior? That can make a big difference. WIth my first 2 I had anterior and felt very subtle movements the whole time (my husband could never really feel the kicks) - with my last and this one, I have posterior and it is very different. I don't remember with my last one when I started to really feel it - but this time it has been about 4 weeks of consistently feeling him daily - and I even started seeing my bump move occasionally this past week (which seemed early to me)

    I'm 21 weeks and feel pretty strong movement several times each day. Up until 2 weeks ago though, I just felt flutters during the day if I wasn't busy. If you are concerned, don't hesitate to call your doc!

    I'm 18 weeks and I feel little jabs every once in a while. It's still not consistent.

    Mine is always most active at night. A night owl like his mommy. <3 He doesn't like it when I set my laptop on my belly. He kicks at it. It's just an 11" Macbook Air. Very light. But it's funny.

    I have been feeling a lot of movement for about a week. Like Kristie said my little man doesn't like it when i have something in my lap! Especially if his brothers are in my lap!! With Cooper, ds2, I didn't feel much movement till about 25 weeks so I am glad I'm already feeling movement. I can't remember with Christopher, ds1, when I started feeling movement. So I guess it varies from pregnancy to pregnancy.

    I finally started feeling a good amount of movement this week at 23 weeks. My placenta is anterior, so it makes it harder to feel movement. I am so glad to be feeling more movement now, it was stressful not to feel anything around the 20 week mark. Thankfully I had an ultrasound at 20 weeks showing the baby being active and moving around, that calmed my fears a bit.

    I feel a lot some days and then just a little for a couple of days. He usually starts moving after I eat and not too much in the mornings. He does have pretty strong kicks now.

    Its just very slight flutters now and again for me, so I guess there is a pretty good chance that the placenta in anterior. I'll hopefully find out next week when we go in for a 3D u/s. The midwives here only send you for one u/s if you're a VBAC, otherwise there are no required u/s. You can set one up after 19 weeks with the local college, but its not an official anatomy scan or anything, just basically to find out the sex. I'll have my one and only official u/s at 36 weeks, so I set this up because I'm paranoid and NEED to see that there is a baby in there.
