A little nervous..
Venting is good, vent away!!
I too have felt very little movement, and I'm 16 weeks along. Unlike you, though, I've felt movement super early with my other pregnancies, I think even before the end of the first tri with both. (So, about 11 weeks?) I'm pretty sure I have an anterior placenta though, so that kind of makes movement harder to feel. But I too worry sometimes. I've seen the baby on U/S already and have heard the heartbeat BUT I still worry that there's something up with the baby - why isn't he/she moving as much as my others? Am I just not in tune enough? Etc. I convince myself I'm being silly but those thoughts DO run through one's head. I just try to recognize them for what they are and move on.
Btw I too have had a little brownish discharge a few times. I don't think it makes much difference. Did you and the husband by any chance DTD before he saw the discharge? I tend to get that sometimes afterwards. It really hasn't affected this pregnancy or the others... I mean, if it was a lot of discharge or accompanied by cramping or something, that'd be different, but not if it's an isolated, small-scale event.
I was feeling very nervous and finally bought a doppler so I could be sane. Nervous is probably too weak a word- I was sobbing in the ob's office asking her for a doppler to hear the heartbeat.... I'm 15.5 weeks and am not sure I've felt movement. The doppler has really saved me. I can't always find the heartbeat, but for some reason that doesn't bother me. As long as I find it the next time.
Hugs though! I know how uncontrollable that worry can be, and that nothing can really stop your brain. My ob said between 12-20 weeks can be the hardest, not feeling pregnant and wondering why, so at least that makes how you feel normal!
I feel ya!
I am 16w 2d and still no movement. I felt DS2 at 13 weeks, so I've been waiting very impatiently these past few weeks for this babe. The further along I get without feeling him/her, the more I start to panic. I have all the aches, pains, aversions, sickness and exhaustion that comes along with pregnancy, but I don't 'feel' pregnant now without being able to feel the baby. Hopefully any day for all of us!
I'm 18 weeks, I have been feeling wiggles sporadically, especially when I am sitting down, I think the baby moves around more when I slouch. One that I think qualifies as a real kick this morning, albeit small one. The wiggling is intensifying though, I joked with hubby yesterday that the baby is trying to make more room in there! I am feeling way more with this one than I did last time, DD was small. I wonder if this baby is going to be much bigger like his/her dad who was a whopping 23 1/2 inches at birth.
