Ok, I'm 17 weeks and I thought I'd been feeling baby move for about a week, but the last two days nothing I know I was super bloated yesterday so not to surprised I wasn't able to feel the gentle movement, but today? My midwife isn't worried yet, but I really am...

I know how you are feeling. I started feeling the baby move very early on and it was a couple time a day. Then once I hit about 15 weeks I started feeling the baby move only every couple/few days. Finally now at 18 weeks it is becoming more regular but that has only been since the weekend when I was about 17.6 weeks. I am sure everything is ok. Baby could be laying with its back to your stomach and that is why you aren't feeling anything. Anyways, just wanted to let you know that I went through the same thing. Could you get your midwife to quickly check with the doppler to give you piece of mind?

Movement was very irregular for me at first, too. I'd feel plenty of movement for a few days and then nothing for a day. It was worrying to me because DD1 was super active from the beginning, but everything is still great for me and at nearly 22 weeks, I'm just starting to feel a lot of activity.

Thanks, mamas! You made me feel better. I was so uncertain because of all my gas, its crazy, lol. Then I was so sure because it happened when my jeans poked me funny or I leaned weird, ya know? Anyway, they are so tiny right now and you're right there will be enough time to get kicked.
