<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">: I know she's bouncing around in there because in the u/s she was waving her arms and doing somersaults and sucking her thumb. And I know she had plenty of space to groove out in without bumping into the sides but still... I'd <i>really</i> like to feel those little flutters you know? Anyone else still not feeling it?

I did not feel a thing until the middle of my 20th week. I was sure that I would be the first to deliver a baby and never have felt it. But then I felt a tiny nudge and looked down to see what had bumped my belly. Then I realized it was bumped from the INSIDE! It was amazing.<br><br>
(Oh and my placenta is anterior, likely why I couldn't feel it for sooooo long)<br><br>
good luck, I hope your little one is beating you up in no time!

I do feel things every once in a while but not nearly as much as my last two boys. I know he's moving too because I saw it in the ultrasound and have heard him move when listening to the heartbeat. I just like to think he's real laid back. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Same boat, nothing quite yet that would tell me that it is indeed a baby moving. I have my one and only U/S on Monday.

Not really, I'm at 18w3d. I swore I felt movement (very definite fluttering) on April 12th, which was between 16 and 17 weeks, but nothing since! I was VERY full after dinner that night, more full than I ever really get on a daily basis, so I don't know if that had something to do with it! I keep trying to concentrate and wait for that feeling, but just hasn't happened. We saw her moving around and waving and kicking at the u/s yesterday, so I'm wondering if maybe I'm feeling it but not realizing what it is, since it's not as clear-cut as that first time I noticed it. Hopefully soon it will be more consistent! DH keeps asking when he'll be able to feel her kick. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

I was gonna start this thread! I'm only 17 weeks or so, but it is my 3rd, so I was expecting to feel them by now. I dunno, maybe my placenta is in the way too?<br><br>
It is bugging me though, b/c I don't do u/s and my new mw really only uses a fetoscope, so I haven't even heard a heartbeat yet. At my last prenatal, I did ask her to try w/ the doppler, but before she got it (only a few minutes of trying) the battery to it died. I wasn't really worried, b/c I really could tell that she is pretty inexperienced or out of practice w/ the doppler, but still....<br><br>
I have gotten a few "maybe" pokes, so hopefully I'll feel something real soon.
