    Default Twins and movement...

    Im 17 weeks pregnant with twins.. I'm worried cause I don't feel movement. I'm paranoid they have just stopped breathing or something ( stupid I know)
    What do y'all think?

    Thanks for the advice, do u think it's still a bit early? This is my 3rd pregnancy, I'm sure I felt them earlier last time.. I also know my placenta is on the back wall so it's not that cushioning the blows..

    I felt my monsters at 11 weeks, although they did/do have quiet weeks when they're having a growth spurt. Do you have a Doppler you can check them with? I'd be heading down to the hospital if I were you. No harm in setting your mind at ease

    If you are concerned, call your care provider.

    I didn't feel my triplets constantly till 21 weeks. I got 1 kick at 17 weeks than nothing more than flutters till 21 weeks. They haven't stopped moving since & that was 3 years ago.

    I felt a few flutters now and then from 16 weeks but no real kicks or movement until around 20 weeks.
    If you're really concerned give your caregiver a call.
