Hi all

I am 22 weeks + 4 and still no movements that I can honestly say are kicks, turns etc. I have had some feelings like bubbles bursting but not much at all sad Is anyone else still waiting?

Bubbles bursting are kicks! That's what they feel like at first, it's only later that they make your eyes water and your insides hurt. You may also notice pressure, that's baby turning round. It gets clearer later on, don't worry.

Where's your placenta? Mine's anterior (front) so I'm hardly feeling anything at 20+3...

I'm the same with anterior placenta. 20+6 today and just starting to recognise small taps inside. But nothing that could be felt on the outside. I like the description of bursting bubbles! Getting more with each day that's gone by this week though. smile

I was really late, I don't think I felt him properly until I was 24-25 weeks. It is unusual but I guess it happens. But talk to your midwife, they might give you an extra scan in a week or so just to monitor things (presumably he was moving ok at your 20 wk scan?)

I was about 24 weeks too before I could honestly say I had felt baby move. Little sensations that I wondered at before then, but definitely ages before I could say - yes that was baby. Don't worry it is completely normal. smile

thanks everyone- lots of puffs and bubbles bursting this eve. I thought he may have had hiccups at one stage as the flickers were a few in a row. I am sure the big kicks and hits will come soon. Thanks for your support smile

I didn't really feel much movement until 25-26 weeks.
