Hi mommies! Thank you all for the concern and the advice, quick update went to the shop last night and got a very sharp pain in the belly button, just to find he was pulling on his unbilicol cord. Haven't felt kicks or the usual movement, only the pulling on the cord. Will see what today brings hopefully I can feel him kicking and moving again else its to the doc. But I will def keep you all updated and thank you for the warm welcome to the group! Hugs to you all!

Hi mommies

Went to a gp, to make sure he is okay and I heard his heartbeat its 153 bpm... So luckily he is okay first time jitters got the best of me. The doctor was abit silly tho. He told me that babies don't move at all in the 1st 24 weeks of pregnancy, the babies remain in the same place and legs and arms doesn't move at all and the best one was that you can't even hear a heart beat at 18 weeks. He said the kicks that I feel are my intestines. Witch I think is strange because my husband can feel him kick when he puts his hand on my tummy.

I don't know where this doctor got his medical degree, but he was very suprised when he heard my boys heart beat over a doppler. Its shocking. But luckily I heard his heart beat and it wasn't 2 hours after the doctors vist then he decided to move again! Murphy's law! So all is fine, thank you for all the advice and support! Hugs!

Glad everything is ok! And definitely thinking your doctor is not to be trusted! I bought my own Doppler at 15 weeks and it was easy to find heartbeats and with my ultrasound at 7weeks before he even had arms and legs the baby was moving around his head and heart beating away.. Babies are in there doing amazing things in there!

I hope you stick around!
