I am about 18 weeks along with #3. About 3 weeks ago I thought I was feeling flutters every night - and now NOTHING. Not a bump, thump nothing. I can understand this during the day because I am too busy to focus on baby..but at night I am starting to feel worried.
Anybody else about this far along not feeling anything? I have a U/S scheduled for Monday...but I haven't seen my midwife in over 6 weeks (my 2 yr old had surgery and we had to cancel our last appt). So I haven't heard the hb since 12 weeks.
My belly is still growing...but I guess I am worried about placenta previa...or I don't know what....we are planning our 2nd HB.
I would just pick up and go to midwife's house to have her listen with the doppler - but we are an hour away...and since I have the U/S on Monday - I figured I would just wait.
I am right with you I thought I was feeling movement a few weeks ago then nothing. I was up last night just hoping I would feel something. My MW app is not till next week. I am 18 weeks 5 days and worried.
PM me if you want and
Just wanted to reassure you that it is still early--and that there are others that worry, too!
I've already heard a heartbeat, so I'm not really worried. I try to tell myself that the less rib-kicking time, the better. But it does make me nervous to hear everyone else talking about movement.

I felt one punch, very clearly, from inside and outside yesterday, though. Couldn't get DH's hand there quick enough of course, and baby didn't do it again.

SURPRISE! New little one, due Sept. 2013
The first time was 15 weeks, 3 days... I was lying down after taking a shower and it was like I had a little goldfish do a swimming turn in my belly.
I kept waiting, thinking I'd feel something else... and wondering what was wrong since it seems like everyone else in the January Due Date Club was saying they were feeling something every few days
The second time was at 18 weeks, 3 days, just a few days ago - I felt the baby stretching from inside.
Today at 18 weeks, 6 days, since I first read through this thread and as I've been online with my laptop in bed, I've felt him or her make a lot of movement... little flips and flops.

Once I can feel the movements I hope I won't be as paranoid.
