How can you NOT feel your baby move?!

Really? How can someone make it to labor and NOT know they are pregnant?! You have to be morbidly obese or mentally retarded! Even then you're pushing it!

  • I actually disagree with that. Obviously if you go from a size 2, you'll notice it, but even though I easily felt my first two babies, I had a lot of fluid with my last and did not feel him moving nearly as much. And it could be pretty easy to misinterpret that movement if you didn't know what it was.

  • some babies really aren't active at all.. many people could chalk that up to gas or indigestion. Add the weight factor and it really is possible. Lets not call names

  • I am fat and I feel my baby move just fine... Though I do appreciate the women on that show who know when it's labor instead of just thinking they must be dying...

  • Yeah I've watched them shows where women didn't know they were pregnant and I DON'T get it either.

  • Having the placenta in front can also make kicks less noticeable.

  • also, having 2 uteruses can make it hard to feel or if the baby stays mainly towards the back then you can't. unless it's happened to you, you wouldn't understand. it hasn't happened to me, but i've worked in hospitals and can see how it can happen.
