First off let me say I'm sorry if this brings up old memorys. I myself have had 4 m/c's, but mine have all been 13 weeks or before.
My question is, did anyone have fetal movement before the m/c?
I am doing very well this pregnancy and have had no problems, :wub: but I guess after having m/c's its still sometimes hard to beleive I have made it this far. And sometimes when the baby is quiet and there is no movement I get a little freaked out. I was just curious if when you had a late m/c if there was movement before.
Thank you for sharing and again sorry if it brings up bad memories :(
Technically I had a stillbirth since I delivered my baby at 20 weeks, but she died around 19 weeks so my DR classified her as a m/c (which kind of pissed me off since I went through labor and delivery - but that is an other story).
Anyhow... She was my 3rd pregnancy and I did feel movement. I started feeling movement around 10 weeks or so. The week she died I wasn't feeling movement. I remember the last time I really felt a kick, I was 19 weeks 1 day. After that I assumed she moved into a position I just couldn't feel, which does happen. I kept thinking I felt little movements after that, which I probably did, it was probably just her body floating around, but I never felt a kick again after 19 weeks. At 20 weeks and 1 day I started having some cramping, since this was my 3rd I knew it wasn't just any cramping, it felt like contractions. I went to the bathroom and wiped and saw brown blood. Not a good sign.
I called the DR who had me come right in and I thought I was just having preterm labor and he'd give me something for it and I'd go home. When I sat on the exam table I had this sinking feeling, even before the u/s that she was gone. He put the u/s thingy on my tummy and I knew that second she was gone.
Afterwards I went to see a Perinatologist (long story) and asked her about that, should I have been more concerned when I stopped feeling kicks and called the OB right away? She said no, I did everything fine. At 20 weeks you can't always feel movement all the time.
This time I started feeling movement around 9 weeks and it comes and goes and I freak out all the time but I got a doppler so that when I don't feel movement I can listen to the h/b.
Sorry for the book... hope some of it helps.
