  • you are still early to feel the baby move a lot. the heart rate is good and s/he could have been sleeping during th u/s. Did the dr say anything about it while you were there? Now the pain I dont know. I did have the vaginal pain mine started at around 25wks and never stopped til I had her last week lovely huh. If you are really worried call your dr or go to l&d

  • They did that with my secong u/s I didnt see her til I got the pics. I was feeling sick anyway so I really didnt mind. I would say like I said if you are worried go to L&D. or wait til mon and call the dr. are you having any bleeding?

  • If something would have been wrong with your baby (because she didnt let u see it) then she would have told you so at the ultrasound. you are very early in your pregnancy. i didnt start feeling any movements until i was 25-28 weeks.

    if you are that worried you might want to call your ob again and get another ultrasound.

    The pain in/around your vagina is something that is very common. i had such a pain around my vagina (the pelvis to be exact!) that i thought im dying. I went to my OB and she told me its the pelvis preparing for birth. not only the uterus is stretching, the pelvis does too. And that frigging hurts!!

    but please get checked if you think something is wrong.
    good luck

  • Maybe baby is just tired. Or sometimes the bigger they get the less they wiggle because they don't have to much room. Have you tried putting something cold on your belly right on top of him or poking him? If you are really worried you should go into the ER and ask them to listen for a heart beat, tell them you haven't felt him move in awhile and you're scared, Good Luck!!

  • That happen to me with my first baby.My Doctor told me to just drink some ice cold water and then if nothing happens then to eat something sweet like a peice of candy .Don't worry your little bundle is probably asleep,my baby was a little lazy until I started to move around myself!
