I have been sleeping with an electric blanket at night cuz it's so cold , I have woken up a few times so hot and my belly was really hot to the touch. Could I have hurt the baby by getting to hot? What could happen? I swear I could feel flutters last week and now nothing I am 13 weeks 2 days. I sleep with it on 2 now.

It would be safer to not use that.    You might make a hot water bottle (not to warm) instead.
But sometimes we will feel movement and then not, that happens.

GL!

You shouldn't expect to feel much movement yet anyway. The baby is probably fine, but it might be best to turn down the heat or only use it when you're awake.

I've used an electric blanket since the beginning practically. You will not hurt your baby using one. If you get to hot your body will let you know, just like it did already. Later in pregnancy all of the apps and books recommend using heating pads to reduce soreness. Its pretty much the same thing.

I use one. If you're worried turn the heat down and use a sheet on top to trap the heat in..

Just turn it down and you will be fine. As for movement it is still too early too feel consistant movement.

iyou need to call your doctor or midwife if you havent felt any movement in a few hours, yes, the unborn sleep, and can sleep for several hours at a stretch, but seriously, you need to call your doctor or midwife..NOW!

She's only 13 weeks, I don't think it's time to panic over decreased movement yet.

Quoting notomatoes:

Thank you for everyone's feedback and from the moms that use an electric blanket also. I am such a worry wart. I felt movement with my last baby at 12 weeks, but I also had placenta previa so my placenta was very low. I'm hoping that my placenta is on top this time and that's why I haven't felt the movement.
