I'm 20 + 5 and to date I've felt no movements of the baby at all so I'm getting a bit worried as I've heard that many feel the baby move well before this
I did have my 20 week scan this week and the baby seemed ok and waved a little hand which was v sweet but I am just concerned that I'm not feeling any movements at all whereas others are feeling lots and much earlier
Is this normal and should I be worried or do some experience movements much later? This is a first pg for me so not sure what they feel like but certain I've not felt anything yet
Hi Jolly, I am 21+4 with my first and I haven't felt anything yet either! I think its probably because I am quite active so therefore generally unaware of tiny stomach movements etc. Also at 20wk scan the sonographer did say that the placenta was shielding baby from my stomach, so he/she would need to give me quite a whack to feel it! Trying not to worry as baby seemed very active in the scan! Hopefully we will both feel something soon!
If its your first you may not feel anything for a while. I'm really lucky that I started feeling movement quite early (2ish weeks) but we are not all the same. The little tinker is practicing karate as I type. Whilst we are eager for movement i'm sure by the time we are full term we'll be begging for them to stop
I felt nothing really out of the ordinary until about 23 weeks. I'd felt little flutterings, but they just felt like wind and I couldn't be sure. One day I KNEW it was definitely her kicking, no mistaking it at all. My midwife said that she expects around 10 movements a day from 24 weeks, but wasn't at all worried about me not feeling anything before then, especially with my first. I'm 40 weeks now and it feels like my bump is going to explode every time she moves!
thanks expecting - its great to know I'm not the only one not to feel anything at this stage
ever since I started the 2nd trimester I haven't felt pg at all - the first trimester was constant nausea the whole time but the last two months I haven't felt pg at all and don't look pg - I'm hoping that my bump will start to appear in the next few weeks and that I get at least a few little prods from the little one for reassurance
I'm not as far along jollyjellybean, am 15+3 (I think!) but defo get what you mean about not feeling pg anymore. I also had constant nausea so it's really odd now it's eased off. Hope you feel something soon xx
yes I am really hoping that I get some movements or something soon as I just don't feel or look pg at all after those first 3 months when pg was all I could think of due to the constant nausea now I just don't feel pg
The scan this week was a relief to see my little one but no movements at all from the bubba is making me anxious
Im going to try the cold water lying down tip soon x
