The more you know, the worse it gets.
This pregnancy has been sooo different from my first, in many ways. As for movement, with my first I felt flutters in my 13th week that steadily grew stronger. I was told at the 18-week US that the placenta was in the back and with that position one tends to feel a lot more movement, much earlier. This time around I'm almost 18 weeks and have barely felt any movement at all yet. Every now and then I think I feel a kick/poke, but nothing like the frequent flutters I felt so early with DS. So I'm thinking my placenta must be in front this time.
I'll be 18 weeks Monday. I feel the baby about every other day or two with a good strong kick but then not feel her again for a while. I think I feel some flutters every now and then but can't be sure if its baby or gas. For those mamas that are feeling baby now, how often does it occur? This is my second baby but I can't remember how frequently I felt my first moving around at this stage. I just get concerned sometimes that she's being too quiet when its been a whole day or 2 days without feeling her move much. Its probably just still a little too early.
