Alright this probably pertains to us having twins ,but please anyone answer ..

Alright with all my losses I am as nervous as can be. When I was pregnant with Kaet I felt movement all the time .It started at 10 weeks till she was born. Now that I am having twins I figured i would feel movement more often then when I was pregnant with just one baby.. But I am not .. I can go days without feeling anything. Then Have 4 days in a row where I feel something.. I think I am really nervous because M loss in 2 nd trimester was when I was 19 weeks and that is coming up.....

I felt very inconsistent (similar to you) flutters from 11-18wks It probably was 20wks or so until I felt consistent daily movement and 24wks began to tell between the two.
Baby B also had an anterior placenta so a lot of his movement was muffled by that. Do you know your placenta placement? are your twins di/di? Having two separate placentas take up a lot of room.
I know it can be very stressful with lack of consistency, hang in there!

If I am any indication, you have nothing to worry about. I barely felt flutters at all (of course maybe I didn't know what I was supposed to be looking for). I didn't really feel movement and kicks until 22-23 weeks, and even now at over 27 weeks is it very sporatic. In the last week or so I can say that I have felt them everyday, but it is NOT consistent in when or how often I feel them at all.

Someone else mentioned placentas and placement and that may have something to do with me feeling so little. I do have two separate placentas and they are both anterior, which is generally associated with less feeling of movement.

And as for telling the difference between the two? no chance. I really have no clue. They are both laying the same way with their heads down and together and their feet to my left. I consistently feel jabs to the left and sometimes middle of my belly, which makes sense from placement, but other than assuming high jabs are Baby B and low ones are Baby A, I really don't have anything to go on.

I had 3 in there and don't think I felt movement until 16 weeks, but it could've been earlier and I just didn't know what I was looking for.

Thank you to *Kiliki* for creating the perfect siggy!

I felt movement at 17 weeks, but I didn't feel it every day at that point. It wasn't until a few weeks later that I noticeably felt a lot of movements. It was awhile after that when I could tell which baby was doing what. I never got the huge kicks and jabs that some moms talk about. I think the kids rub out of space before they are strong enough to do that. It's funny when you can start seeing where each head, butt, foot etc. is.

Thank you peimum for my siggie

I didn't feel any movement (not that I could tell at least!) until around 20-21 weeks. It was definitely strange because I thought that because there were 2 babies, I'd feel movement a lot sooner. Everyone is different though. Keep thinking positive thoughts!

Thank you .h00dihoo.this. for my awesome siggy!
