WORRIED!!

Ok so I'm 20 weeks pregnant and I started feeling "Flutters" very early.. and I felt them very frequently... But here in the past like 2 weeks I haven't been feeling him at all. It's starting to make me really nervous. I don't go to the Doctor until next Tuesday & I can't get off work to go before then because my boss and manager would be very mad and probably take away my manager position if I take any time off at all. Any advice??

  • When I was preggo and I didn't feel my dd move for a few hours I would drink a glass of ice cold water or something with sugar in it, then I would lay down as soon as I drank it and she would kick me or elbow me, it might only be 1 movement but that's better than none at all.
