I want to know if anyone's belly has "shrunk". Today I just haven't been feeling pregnant at all. No symptoms (other than heartburn and a strong urge to nap). I have felt a few kicks here and there but for the last week I feel like I can't pinpoint any movement.
Dare I ask....should I be worried? I wish I had a doppler....
I have a doppler and it hasn't help me feel pregnant! LOL I actually felt movement super early on (just flutters) at around 12 weeks and I thought by now I'd feel kicks and punches for sure. I don't feel anything!! I actually tried finding the heartbeat yesterday and couldn't so I just am giving it a few days. My belly is definitely bigger, I'm ready to feel it though!
I haven't been able to find a heartbeat yet either, so a doppler wouldn't help me either. I'm sorry you're worrying about it. If you're really concerned, you can see if your doctor will allow you to come in just to have a nurse check the heartbeat with a doppler. I'm sure everything is fine and it's just the hormones leveling out. That's always the most stressful part of pregnancy: The time between losing morning sickness and feeling movement.
I started feeling like this too, so yesterday I pulled out my doppler. Baby was loud and clear. I agree with the other ladies, it's that weird in-between time. After having so many symptoms the first trimester things start to settle down and you start wondering if you're really still pregnant.
Hang in there. I debated getting a doppler, but I don't know if it would cause me more anxiety. It is a weird time, especially since the ms is starting to fade too. I think by 20 weeks you will feel more regular movements.
Honestly I was feeling that way for the past couple days and last night had nightmares about it, but this morning we saw bambino and he/she has a hb of 166...chances are everything is fine. I'm slowllly getting used to the ebb and flow of pregnancy hormones.
