That is why I love having the doppler. It helps ease my mind when I freak out and worry about whether or not the baby has been moving. For some reason, maybe because I am 20 lbs heavier than I was with my first two, I don't feel the baby as often or as strongly as I did with my first. Or maybe it is just too darn early and I need to relax, lol.

Still looots of room in there - very possible for her to be moving and you just not feeling it. Much more likely than that there's anything wrong, in fact.

If you can do the doppler, I recommend it. I don't even end up using it half the times it occurs to me that I could. I just think "meh, I'll wait and use it later if I'm still worried" and usually I'll feel something before it becomes necessary. In the meantime I'm not helpless, which keeps my anxiety under control.

I am the same way, and I think that we all worry about being "that lady" that drives our doctors nuts. HOWEVER.... that is what we are paying them for! Maddie is very active, probably the most active out of the 7 pregnancies that I have had that made it this far. I still plan on borrowing a doppler from a friend... I am a super nervous nelly.
