    Default when did you feel first kick with #2?

    I had a 16 week appt with my midwife a couple weeks ago, everything is going fine. She heard the heartbeat and said its perfect. She didnt bother with measuring me as she said "you're still so tiny i dont want to go feeling around just yet, it would be just under your belly button".
    She then said this "have you felt movement yet? usually with your second you feel it sooner because u know what to expect..."
    2 weeks later i still havent felt a thing. I felt "flutters" at 16 weeks with DD and she never ever stoped moving from that day lol

    Ive been trying to feel for movement at night when im in bed laying down. I'll roll from side to side to 'wake it up' lol but i dont feel any flutters yet. Im not that concerned as every pregnancy is different. Im just waiting so bad for that reassuring "OI! IM ALIVE AND LETTING YOU KNOW IT" kick!

    Wen did you feel movement with your second pregnancy?
    Just after reassurance that it's normal, i guess.

    Couldn't read and not Reply, I think that I felt DS2 early but mainly because I would have Braxton hicks soooooooo often from about 12 weeks that would tighten around him so I knew exactly where he was, so from there I could feel little flutters until they became more apparent at about 16-17 weeks! But I think you are normal, all will be well I'm sure, if you don't feel anything past 20 weeks I would 'maybe' worry but not now HUGS I'm sure it won't be long xxx

    I felt all mine really early but I know HEAPS of people that have been over 20 weeks before anything. It is possible that you have an anterior placenta which is cushioning the movements. Sounds like everything is fine

    It just means the placenta is sitting between the baby and the front of your uterus, it doesn't impact on anything at all. Just often means you feel movement later

    Maybe have someone bring you a chilled glass of water first thing in the morning while you're still in bed and all warm.
    Drink it as quick as you can, and be on the look out for 'gas' bubbles, or muscle twitches in that area. Bubs don't like being cooled quickly and most likely be woken up which will result in some swift movement. You should be able to notice it if you're still .

    I think I felt my DD2 move when I was 14 weeks, but I wasnt 100% sure if it was the baby or gas! LOL I was sure it was the baby moving when I was 16 weeks, but even then it was just little flutters. I felt my DS1 move when I was 19 weeks.
    Try cold water, or juice it works

    oh thankyou ladies i am relieved in that i felt a kick/punch last night!
    It was just the one swift *pow!* right near my belly button and then i felt nothing after that. Maybe this bub is just a quiet little thing?!!?
