    Thanks everyone, I'll see how it goes tomorrow. I only started feeling bubs about a week ago so maybe it's still early.
    It's just a bit unnerving getting some kicks and then nothing.

    Not sure if it affects anything but My placenta is low lying but at the back bordering my cervix so far.

    I hope bub has given you a reassuring kick by now!

    If not I'd be going to get checked. It only takes a second for them to check and they don't mind at all.

    If I was worried, I would (prior to gd diagnosis) have something sweet to eat, and ICY cold water, then sit slightly reclined back with my hand on my tummy... it would get bub going

    Just reiterating what others have said - if you're worried call your ob and get checked, that's what they are there for. It's most likely normal but peace of mind will make you feel so much better about everything.

    Look it’s a hard one. They can’t monitor baby at all to see what’s happening, and routinely we wouldn’t suggest even tracking movements until after 24 weeks. By all means get yourself checked out, but all they’ll be able to do is a doppler to check HR or possibly a bedside scan. It’s not going to give a lot more info. In saying that, at 22/23 weeks there’s nothing they can really do anyway...

    that’s why i assumed my OB told me they don’t really advise you monitor movements before 24 weeks anyway; the pregnancy isn’t really viable until then anyway so even if baby was in distress, what can they really do?

    Thank you so much everyone, I've had a few little flutters this afternoon, the cheeky bugger! But I will still be paying a lot of attention over the coming day and if it doesn't keep up, I'll see my OB Monday. It's so unnerving after a terrible road to getting to this point.
