I'm 20 wks on Sunday and as yet have not felt anything, had my checks and they're all fine. I can't remember when I felt 1st baby move but was told that it would be earlier 2nd time round, when would you be worried?
I don't think you need to be worried. Your muscles are a lot slacker 2nd time round.
You'll soon be getting jabbed in the ribs!
As long as all was fine with the heart beat etc at your midwife appointment, then I wouldn't worry.
If you haven't seen her for a while, get an appointment, see her just to check things, or ring. That's what they're there for.
Hi lulabelle, I'm currently 28wks on second pg. I thought I felt the odd movement from 17wks this pg (whereas 19wks with first), but I worried myself sick cos it was very intermittant, maybe once or twice a day and I was sure that now I could 'feel' baby I should be feeling something all the time. No no no. It wasn't until week 21 that I started to feel baby about 5-6 times a day and then by wk 23 it was upto the 10 times a day. So like you I was worried, but after my 21wk scan I realised it was all for nothing as baby was fine and of average size.
When is your anomoly scan? That's usually around 20-21wks. Otherwise when did you last hear the heartbeat and when are you next due to see the mw/gp? You can make an appt with them any time to listen if it's been a while. I'm sure in a few weeks you'll be wondering why you worried and wish you can have a break from the constant jabs! I know I would love a bit more sleep at night rather than being poked every time I shift!
I've been paranoid about this one. I felt ds2 and dd by 16 weeks (ds1 by 18 wks) but this time I felt some movement much earlier (14wks?) then nothing but now I'm nearly 18 wks I'm feeling flutters again - I think it's the extra flab I'm carrying this time - not such a tight bump! If the midwife isn't worried about the heartbeat - don't you worry.
I think they shouldn't print these things in baby books. Both of mine I felt kick WEEKS after the books said I should. When they print things like "oh and you make feel really excited when you first feel the baby kick -- possibly even this week" or some other rubbish it just get's all worried if you don't feel it. I would put a lot more faith in heartbeats heard and scans.
Hi, I had a MW check last Thursday and all was fine, I have my scan on the 16th (I will be 21+3 then but they had no appointments for week 20). I don't know why I'm so worried, I have had the triple test and thats fine, my individual score was much better than the one for my age (27), I have got myself in such a state this time round, next week it will be something else!!
my first i felt at about 20 weeks i think, i saw my Mw yesterday and she asked if i had felt anything and as of yet i have not i am 16 weeks now, i am not worried though i think everyone is different but i can not wait to feel movement.
