i would check now MrsJ to put you mind at rest, but some women don't feel anything till later try not to worry too much hun (easy said than done I will give my self a punch for that one!)

I used to drink a fizzy drink or a cold drink and lay still for a while if I hadn't felt her move, that usually does the trick. xx

HI Mrs J

Saw my consultant yesterday and she said that you should not expect to feel bubs until 22 weeks plus...often before that it is just wind that is mistaken for bubs...also..you may, like me, have the placenta acting like a cushion at the front so that you cant feel the movement....

I really wouldnt worry..Im not, esp after yesterday.........if it makes you feel more secure tho then have a chat to your midwife.


Bubs will make him/herself known when they are ready!!


xxxx

PS Pip was bouncin around kickin up a storm in the scan and I still couldnt feel him...he's def going to be a footballer NOT a ballet dancer...typical DH gets his boy and he's butch!!

Thanks for the reasurances. I rang the midwife anyway 'cos I wanted to book for antemnatal classes. She was great, she said its normal at this stage not to feel much and some woman actually got through the whole pregnancy not feeling many movements. She said it could be to do with my muscle tone (ie there isn't any!), the scan was fine and I still feel pregnant in every other way, so I can relax a bit. Naturally bnecause I'm hormonal, I wanted to cry 'cos I was so relieved!

Aw bless. If you feel like you really need some assurance, although it sounds as though everything is fine, can you book in to see your GP so you can hear the heartbeat? I want to do that every week but having to wait til 26th!

Argh! I just replied and it vanished!


I jus wanted to say don't worry too! There is no 'normal' there are only averages and the average woman feels kicks at some point AFTER 16 weeks.

I can confirm that kicks are very VERY similar to wind. In fact, I've been frantic on occasion when I've felt something similar to a kick from a 6 month baby when in fact it was clearly a combination of the steak, chips and Merlot from the previous evening. :D

The midwife's happy, the heartbeat's strong, the scan was fine, you're fit and healthy........ nothing to worry about, you've obviously got a very chilled out baby in there.

Thanks girls. My placenta is attached anteriorly as well and apparently there is a small research study which says that means I could feel movements later.

The baby has just done a quick summersault just to set my mind at rest and make me feel like an idiot at the same time. Not sure if that means its chilled, just bl**dy contrary!

Bells should I be having steak & chips with merlot every night? (please say yes!)

I had anterior placenta and most of bubs early movements were only flutters, so as the others have said try not to worry. Once R got bigger, I started to feel them more, but only to the sides. I never felt anything really strong at the front.

It means its at the front!!

Apparently, it caused a problem when DD was born. Because I had em c-section, they had to bring the placenta out first. Cos this was on top of baby, they had to cut the cord while baby as still inside!! DD then decided that she would like on last look around her old 'home', and slid further up and under my ribs!!! Dr had a job getting her out!!

Mrs J, I think steak, chips and a (small) glass of Merlot would be perfectly fine. In addition, the inclusion of chocolate cake (with cream) is essential when encouraging baby's movements.

That could be why it feels rock hard further down and I get lots of tenderness there then.

Is that normal for every pregnancy then, for the placenta to be at the front?

The placentas position depends on where the fertilised embryo implants in the side of your womb. It can be absolutely anywhere but its only a problem if its near to the neck of your womb because then you have a condition called placenta previa which can cause problems during delivery. Its usually picked up on a routine scan, but if you've got it, you usually need a c-section.

Glad your mind is put at rest with steak and chocolate cake. If worried still, eating chocolate mini rolls and crisps :D

I'm glad midwife put your mind at rest. I've said before but there should be a book called "is this normal?" then all mums-to-be would have their minds at rest.

And it would take a flatbed trolley to move it!!! :D

Jen, yes this is probably why your tummy feels hard. My placenta was anterior and it wasn't really until the very last few weks that I felt alot of movement. I got the odd judder, but in my mind I could confirm it was DD kicking as it felt very soft and more like a muscle spasm IYKWIM!

Bells, I too get the odd kicking feeling, last week it was that regular that I was convinced it was infact a baby! Glad to know I'm not the only one!! :D

Junior has been fairly quiet the past couple of days. Course I've been panicing again - does anyone else get this? Days of lots of activity and some quiet days in between?

I can recommend Magnums to get baby moving. I had one last night and for the first time I felt some 'proper' kicks. They've all stopped now so obviously I'll have to experiment with what kind of choccy ice cream baby likes best, I've tried B&Js phish food and a white magnum but so far just the dark chocolate one has worked. Obviously takes after daddy who isn't that into sweet things which has ruined my plans for a child to bake cakes with.

I'm hoping the England game will provoke a bit of a reaction! Just think girls, next world cup all our DHS will have a little almost 4 year old to explain the offside rule to! I can't wait for that.

Baby kicks

I think junior is going to be a footballer!

When we were watching the match last night I felt, and saw (!), a massive baby kick!!! I thought I was seeing things until she did it again!! Wow! Made me jump! Then had a series of them and as soon as DH put him hand on my stomach they stopped!!! Typical!!!

So I now feel reassured that all is ok in there after that.

Most of the BH's you won't feel up to the birth as the uterus practises quietly most of the time.

Just wait until you can see the movement when looking down, that is really weird! There is also something about DH putting his hand on your bump that guarantees that junior will stop straight away, for ages mine thought I was making it up Jen! :rolleyes:

I get BHs under my knickerline, just light ones - the doc and midwife confirmed this. I get lots of tighteness too and can't bear anything like my trousers settling on that area, it gets really uncomfortable.

I think my DH presses a bit hard by accident and Junior thinks 'oi gerroff' and hides!

Good old b*** kicks all the time and doesn't seem to have any problems kicking on when DP is touching tummy. He moved over to the left hand side yesterday when DP was kissing my tum (too much pressure or affection?) ;) and this morning was the first time that I have a symmetrical tum!

Lying down and having BH makes amazing shapes on tum, i know exactly where he is, add a good old kick and you have a great show!

DP doesn't seem as amazed by the kicks but I guess that it is different when they are headbutting your innards!
DP seems to have to confirm each kick saying "that was one?" as if it is not obvious enough!
