  • You would know it if you had a miscarriage at this stage. However if you haven't felt your little one move in a while you might go in and see your doc so they can check for a heart beat. Or you can buy your own monitor for it.

  • Yes if you lost your baby you would know because the baby will need to be removed. I lost a baby at 18 weeks and had to have her removed. That's why they have monthly check ups just to look for a heartbeat.
    Don't stress yourself out. As long as your appointments are going great your baby should be fine./

  • Sometimes it helps to drink something with a little sugar in it like a glass of orange juice then lay down on your left side for a while. A lot of times that will get the baby to moving so u can ease your mind a little.

  • i lost mine at two months, if you loose a baby, theres alot of blood involved. like the others said, call the doc or you can do what i do when i freak out, go straight to the er and they will help ease your mind. i'm praying everything works out for you.

  • You don't always know if you have had a miscarriage. I have had 3 and i never bleed or felt anything was wrong. I didn't find out until i went to have an ultrasound. The best thing to do is call your doctor and go in. Sometimes we get stressed and worried over nothing. And sometimes the babies aren't very active at 21wks. Don't stress yourself that will be worse on the baby.

  • When my friend had a miscarriage at 5 months she actually felt like she was in labor. When the baby came out in the er the nurse quickly wrapped the baby up so it wouldn't upset her. It was awful. If you think something is wrong, get it checked out. I felt my babies move at 5 month, but my torso is so short and I felt everything. Some woman just don't feel much. Don't stress about the movement quite yet. Just see if they can do an ultrsound to make sure baby is ok.

  • If you're not feeling your baby moving as much, try increasing how much water you're drinking. Surprisingly, you feel the baby move less if you're dehydrated. Have you determined the location of the placenta? If the placenta is on the front of your uterus, you're not going to feel it move as much.
