TRYING not to freak out.
 
I haven't felt her move in about 24 hours, or at least, not that I've been aware of. I've been feeling her move since about 13 weeks, so not sure whats going on. Am going to call if I haven't felt anything by about 2 or 3. I'm sure she's fine, but feeling anxious. I don't want to be THAT pregnant lady and call, just to find out she's moving around like crazy :confused:

I am in the same boat. I don't think I felt the bubs yesterday at all, and im thinking nothing today. I know I did the night before last though.

Sending move baby vibes your way

I am not even sure if I feel anything yet. Hey if you feel worried then I would call. That is what they are there for.

I haven't felt my baby move much if at all yet. I would call if you are worried, that's what the doctor is for.

I felt kicks like crazy last week, but this week not as much, but sometimes if they change positions your amnionic sac could be buffering their moves, or they could be sleeping a lot. Try not to worry and KUP!

Try drinking some ice water kind of fast (not just sipping it).

I'm sure everything is okay, but I know that doesn't help when you are worrying. Things shift around and babies get lazy. Definitely call to ease your mind, though. I am 15 weeks, second child, and haven't felt anything yet.

I think I felt her EVER so softly after I jiggled my belly (a la ultrasound tech). I believe I will be convincing my hubby for a doppler!

Drink some OJ or something caffeinated. Sugar seems to always get them moving. :p

Thanks ladies! It's just crazy how your mind plays tricks on you. 5th baby, and still a worry wart!

They only time I'm sure I feel anything is when I have the Doppler out. The thump feeling coincides with a thump on the Doppler next to where I'm listening to his heartbeat.

I gotta say the more babies I have had the more worried I get.

I had serious panic attacks with my last one it sucked!

This is me too, but 3rd baby and almost 16 weeks! It's hard not to worry!

Call to ease your mind, friend.

I went all day Sunday with no movement. I was freaking out! Baby has been pretty active every day since though. I've also been feeling movement since 13 weeks. Sometimes they just have lazy days I guess? Have you been more active today? Hopefully you get some nice strong kicks when you lay down and relax tonight!

I'm so glad you felt her!!!

They say there movements are not consistent until aft 20wks!

I agree with the other ladies - ice water and sugar seems to get mine moving...I feel movement every day, but not so much the other day, so I broke out my doppler to ease my mind, and after a few minutes of searching, I found the little HB. I can't tell you how helpful this thing is to have, so if there's any way to convince your hubby to get you one, please do it - your peace of mind makes it worth every penny.

Jacob has been going crazy the last few weeks! But when I don't feel much I freak out its my first but hey I think no matter what baby you are on you are allowed to worry its a part of being a mama! But when he doesn't move I eat a little bit of ice cream then he starts up! Or I play believe it or not classic country like kitty wells Loretta Lynn patsy cline hank sr George jones Charlie pride and he will be active along with the music I don't know if he's hearing it or I'm going nuts! Lol but if you ever feel uneasy call the Doc because that's what they are there for to put your mind at ease!

I would try not to worry. I have felt some movement but not lots. I also try reminding myself that I am overweight to begin with an have an anterior placenta. I did with my last kiddo too an I did go into the L&D a few times since I wasn't feeling much movement if any. I am thinking of getting a doppler this time just so I don't always have to goto L&D when I don't feel movement.

I haven't felt much at all either, which worries me too. I agree with you other ladies, it seems like the more kids we have the more we worry...
