    Default No movement by 18 weeks, 3rd baby.

    So, as title says no movement at all and I'm 18 weeks tomorrow. Both my others where earlier then this. Even DD the first and I had an anterior placenta. I am assuming I have an AP again but I starting to get a bit concerned. next scan is just over three weeks away. I have heard a HB using the Doppler from work but still...I am worried!

    I've only had one baby but with him I didn't feel diddly squat till I was at least 21 weeks, and even then it was just bubbly type feelings. Maybe you could get your scan moved earlier or ask for an additional one if you are worried?

    Same happened with me with this 3rd pregnancy. I didn't feel anything til 23 weeks. If you heard the heartbeat, i wouldn't be too worried. as long as u hear the heart.

    So is this pregnancy with an anterior placenta? I know I have anterior placenta and I am just really noticing definite movements. Am 22 weeks. Felt small things before but wasn't sure. I have noticed the last few nights that the baby moves a lot a night. I woke through the night and the baby was moving heaps, maybe your baby is moving mostly at night and it is hard to miss?

    with my 3rd pregnancy I also didn't feel movement until around 20wks as my placenta was at the front so it was cushioning all of the babies movements

    I couldn't feel DD3 moving until 22-23 weeks later than both my other DD's! I'm with the others if you heard the heartbeat chances are bubby is fine just "lazy" (as I called DD3 lol)
