Feeling first movements 3rd baby

Am probably just being paranoid, but I'm 15 +1 and not feeling anything. I know I was feeling definite movements by this stage last time. The placenta is not at the front so it can't be that. Can anyone reassure me? flowers

I had DC4 13 weeks ago.

It was about 18 weeks before I got flutterings. 22 weeks before they were regular, obvious, 10+ per day movements.

For the early flutterings, much depends on how busy you are. If you find yourself sitting quietly all day every day for a week or so, maybe you might notice them earlier. If you have a busy life, it is easy to miss them until they become obvious.

Dc4 here - no movement till 19 weeks. I'm sure everything is fine smile

Thanks. You may be right about not sitting quietly enough to notice them- don't do much of that! I know that lots of people feel movements later than 15 odd weeks, but I am stillconcerned that I felt them much earlier last time. Have appt on Tuesday so will hopefully hear the heartbeat then to reassure me.

15 weeks is very early. I still wasn't feeling DS at the 20 week scan. Placenta was posterior but DD2 was similar and she wasn't. smile

I'm pregnant with dc3 now (28 weeks) i wasn't getting much movement before 20weeks and not regular til 22-23. My second I could feel regularly from 11 weeks. I have a low lying placenta this time.....don't know if that makes a difference, anyway baby is all fine grin
