So I'm 16 wks today. I've been feeling baby girl on and off for a few weeks now, nothing major and definitely not consistant. Usually at least once a day though. Wednesday night I was worried because I hadn't felt her all afternoon/evening but she gave me a good kick right before bed. Yesterday I don't think I felt her at all, no definite kicks (at least I don't think so) but maybe a few movements. So this morning I'm in major being paranoid mode.

I keep telling myself it is still early but my mind immediately goes to the fact that I was feeling DS #3 pretty consistantly at this point. I keep telling myself that she's a girl and probably smaller due to the Down Syndrome. But it's so hard to get my head to believe those things. I wish I was at the point where she was big enough to be feeling the movements on a consistant basis already. The mental aspect of this pregnancy has been soooooo difficult considering my chances of another stillbirth jumped up so much with the Down Syndrome diagnosis. It's so hard not to freak out.

Thanks for listening girls. Mom would tell me I'm nuts and DH is at work and I just needed to get this out of my head.

Do you have a fetal Doppler? It used to calm me down somewhat. Also i don't think I felt consistent movements this early on. For me they started on daily basis at around 21-22 weeks for all three of my pregnancies.
Hang in there! I know it's hard after what we've been through.

I hate those weeks where the movement isn't consistent yet. It is so nerve wracking. I hope baby girl starts to get a consistent pattern with her movements that you can count on.

I've never gotten to really consistent movement until around 20 weeks, so yes, it is normal. Your son was probably REALLY active. lol I know that worry though.

I think she's decided that between 11:30pm and 12am is her witching hour. The last time I felt her it was after 11:30pm and last night I was so not in a good mood, feeling awful with nauseua and being hot, and I'm laying in bed on my back in the only comfortable position, and she decided to make her presence known again! A nice little jump and a few little kicks following that. It's still so nerve wracking though.

Ugh! I was just thinking the same type of thoughts. I am only about 15 weeks and thought I was feeling baby last week, but now not at all. THis being pregnant after stillbirth sucks big time. I want to feel the baby consistently already.
