Ok as normal I am freaking myself out... I have felt movement/flutters early on .My question is did anyone have periods of time where they did not feel movement and everything was just fine... I have (pretty sure) not felt anything for about 2 days.. With all my losses I am driving myself crazy... I have a ultrasound on Wednesday and Will found out for sure what is going on

I am not much help to you because I am 21 weeks and still haven't felt anything I would say for sure is the babies ... I suppose it doesn't freak me out though, because I have never felt them and I know I see them moving all around at the u/s. I would think that as early on as you are, it would be normal to not feel them depending on how they are positioned at the time.

I didn't feel anything at all until around 22 weeks. I went to L&D last week because I didn't feel the baby on the left side moving at all and had myself thoroughly freaked out. They barely got the monitor on her andshe was kicking the snot out of the monitor lol. I couldn't FEEL it, but she was moving. They are both fine, even though I STILL RARELY feel baby B move. It drives me crazy! Baby A makes a punching bag outof my cervix/ribs and. . .nada from baby B. I'd say at 11 weeks you've got nothign to worry about if you're not feeling movement. Have you considered buying a doppler or renting one to give yourself peace of mind?

At 11 wks I never felt consistent movement..maybe for a day then nothing for a week, probably not until 15wks until daily movement (although not consistently through the day). Its probably wasn't until 20wks+ until I felt consistent movement from both boys. Hang in there and try not to freak yourself out too much.

I didn't feel the first definite movement until 17w. After that it wasn't something I felt a lot until a few weeks later. I rarely felt baby B move. I could see her moving, but she'd kick the placenta when she moved. I could see all sorts of movement on ultrasounds and couldn't feel any of it. It was a bit crazy to watch what was going on in there.

Thank you peimum for my siggie

I was also around the 18 week mark when I felt constant movement. And even then Baby B's movement was muffled because of my anterior placenta. I never really could tell who was moving when.

Try not to worry yourself too much. 11 weeks is still pretty early to feel constant movement. GL at your ultrasound.

I guess what freaks me out is that with my past miscarriages when I stop feeling movement I miscarry a few days later... I guess Iwill find out tomorrow. I need lots of prayers right now please !!!!
