I am 18 weeks pg with my second db. Ds was born 8 months ago so I'm sure that things are still a bit "baggy" inside. However, I haven't felt any movement with this pg at all and I'm getting really worried (even though my m/w found a heartbeat with a doppler 2 weeks ago). I thought that I would feel movements earlier than I did with ds - I first felt a movement with him at about 19 weeks.
Can you remember when you first felt movement with your second (especially if you fell pg soon after your first)?
Thanks nailpolish! Ds moved alot when I was pg and his nickname is Wriggle so perhaps this will be a less wriggly baby. I must admit that I was surprised when my m'wife asked me about movements when I saw her 2 weeks ago and I suppose it's been on my mind ever since. I'm sure that you are right about moving around wishingchair. I sat at a desk all day when I was pg with ds and I don't sit down much at all now (and when I do I fall asleep!)
piglit, i am pg with no.2 and was told that i SHOULD feel it earlier, but i didn't. i was quite worried about it but when i talked to my midwife, she pointed out that my notes (from many many scans!) said that i had an anterior placenta, so i wouldn't feel the baby kick. that was at about 18/19 weeks and 2 weeks later it was much more consistent. i think i was panicking as i expected the movement to be immediately routine and reliable, as it is only 9 months since ds1 was born!! how the mind plays tricks!!! now i am 26 weeks and being regularly kicked to pieces by the gorgeous little blighter!! if you are worried ask your midwife but i certainly wouldn't be panicking (with the benefit of hindsight ). good luck anyway!
i think each pregnancy is different although i have felt movement from around 16 weeks this time and not until around 22 with dd. what is normal anyway? congratulations by the way and hope all goes well for you and your family
