Can you contact MW and ask for a check up to see if she can hear the heartbeat? I'm 20 weeks and only just feeling the odd flutter but not much (this is my second) My MW had me in for a listen to put my mind at rest 2 weeks ago. baby could just be lying in a position that means you can't feel movement yet.
You might have an anterior placenta this time which might mean you feel less movement than before. But agree with Gretna that if it would put your mind at rest ask your MW for a check up so you can hear the heartbeat. Did your MW listen to the heartbeat at your 16 week checkup?
I wouldn't worry just yet - I have an anterior placenta and felt absolutely nothing until about a week ago at 19 weeks. Baby seems to have shifted a bit and in certain positions it's much more obvious now but still nothig like the karate sessions some people are describing.
I think you might be right about the placenta as I had a dooppler and with all my other found the HB really quick - I haven't been able to find it this time and have had a scan at 14 weeks so know he is safe in there.
I posted the same thing at 18 weeks. I have an anterior placenta and think that was masking movement. Kicks started at about 19 weeks but only a few a day (20 weeks now). I had none of these flutters though that everyone talks about! I'm sure it will be fine.
Hi there - don't worry I'm sure its the placenta - I didn't feel mine until 22 weeks and then it was kicks straight away. If you look in your notes it should tell you the position of the placenta. I expect you feel worried because it's so different to your other experiences.
I had an anterior placenta with DC3 and felt much less movement the whole way along. Days and days of feeling nothing..... all was fine though. Ask at scan where the placenta is then if you feel less movement later on you wont be so worried?
