Baby Kicking

I'm about 18 weeks along with my second pregnancy. I'm really not feeling a whole lot of movement. I feel the occasional bubbly feeling, but that's about it. Would you be concerned? I'm going to the OB tomorrow, so I'll make sure everything is okay..but still...kind of strange, huh?

I started feeling my 2nd baby move at 17 weeks but not very much.  You are only 18 weeks and you shouldn't be worrying yet.  My doctor said they don't worry about not feeling movement until you are 24 weeks.

With my first two, that is how it was like. Now my third, she never STOPPED moving! I'm sure every thing's alright.

I am no doctor...but I would be concerned....I am 22 weeks and it feels like my little girl is doing backflips and aerobics in there! Is this your 1st? you might just not be realizing its the baby. I know with my 1st, I never really knew until I had a sonogram and he was moving, then I seen it on the screen and was like" thats what that was"....lol GL to you and the baby though!

 

Guess I should have read the whole post again...its your second...duh...Id ask anyways...oh...are you really active...you might just be too busy to feel it...drink some sprite and lie down...she might start to move...worked for me.

i really wouldn't be concerned.  do you have an anterior placenta?  if so you won't feel movements regularly (and i've heard in some cases, not at all for a long time) until your further along.  definitely don't be concerned.  you know how pregnancy goes, it's always different every time for every woman.

although with the baby movement thing, both mine were pretty similar.  i felt dd when i was 18 wks along, and this baby i felt at 16 weeks, and that's just how i work.  and this is just how you work :)
