    Default Movement stopped at 17.5 weeks

    Hi all

    I started feeling pretty regular movement (at least 3-4 times a day) from 16 weeks. For the last 24 hours I haven't felt anything so am getting a bit worried.

    I know that lots of people don't feel anything until later so it's not that which I'm worried about. It's the fact that it started and then stopped.

    I know about the eating something sweet and drinking something cold trick which I will do but cant do until later tonight as have guests staying and am out straight after work. Great timing I know!

    Can anyone please share if they have experienced this themselves and if all was ok or not? I know the chances of anything being wrong are very slim but im still worried... I'm at work and have something really important to do and can't concentrate!

    Thanks x

    From what I understand from other posts, movement can vary at this early stage ie. feeling a lot one day and not much the next. It may just be that bub has rolled over or into a position that is harder for you to feel. I'm only 14 weeks and not feeling anything yet so can't tell from personal experience but from everything I've read you shouldn't worry. If things don't improve see your practitioner.

    Yes, I had this all the time! Baby would be super active and then just go quiet for a day or two.... then would come back stronger than ever!

    My theory is that the little one was doing some growing while they were quiet

    I also wouldn't worry too much at this early stage as movement varies a lot. Also, if you have been busy over the last day or do you may not have noticed some of the movement. If you are still worried, you could pop on and see your dr for reassurance! Good luck, don't stress

    My girl seems to kick like crazy for two days and then take a day or so to rest.

    Also, if they are facing a certain way, it can be really hard to feel the kicks.

    Don't stress

    Thank you all! My midwife has said she'll come round on Sunday to have a listen if I don't feel anything by then but fingers crossed it won't come to that... I'll let you know. Thanks again for the reassurance.

    Hey there I haven't had no movements for that long a time but the heat might be a factor?

    I'm 19 weeks and while the weather has been really hot bubs seems very quiet and won't move at all during the day, and will have only a short burst of energy at night.

    Good luck for tomorrow hope you're doing ok

    Thanks for thinking of me I think I have felt a few flutters. Not as strong or often as before but I am going to make myself be positive about it and will wait till my hospital appointment on Wed and not get my midwife to come tomorrow. Positive mental attitude! I can't believe how stressful this pregnancy stuff can be... What will it be like when they arrive?!
