Ok...I'm driving myself crazy with worry so I thought I should share on here so maybe someone can share a similar experience.
I'm 13.5 days pregnant with my 4th baby...all of my babies have been c-section babies. I am small framed and have always felt my baby's movements very early on. The 1st time at 16 weeks (I could actually see the bumps) the 2nd time at 13 weeks, the 3rd at 11 weeks and this time around at 11 weeks also. But at 12 weeks I couldn't feel anymore movements and I was convinced the baby died. I went into my appt at 12.5 days expecting not to see the heartbeat on the ultrasound but to my surprise, it was there! 135 bpm and the baby measured at 13 weeks. Then I started feeling the movements again and they were nice and strong and frequent. But for the past coulple days I haven't felt a thing and now I'm back at that paranoid state thinking the baby has passed on again! We have a 4D ultrasound this Sat to find out the gender since my husband is in the Marine Corps and wont be here for a couple months and I'm terrified we are gonna go in there with our other kids and my parents and find out the baby passed away. Do they even tell you those thing at those places???
I'm trying to convince myself that the baby is just in a different position and I'm not feeling its movements like last time. Or maybe because of the loss of nerves from my c-sections, I cant feel certain movements since that area is numb. Has anyone else experienced these intermittent feral movements? I do feel some uncomfortable feelings down low like in my butt area as if something is pushing on nerves in that region. Not sure if that's the baby or just my body. I'm just so worried and paranoid right now! I never experienced this before...with my other 3 pregs, once I started feeling the baby movements, they never stopped.
I felt the baby move at 11weeks on two seperate occaisions but after that I haven't felt anything, feel a bit worried. I have my first scan tomorrow, so i don't know what i am going to see, just want want to see that tiny little heart beating.
Hey hun. I see that you can feel movement pretty early on but you're still early to be feeling baby everyday. Baby has SO much room to swim right now. I wouldn't worry, I bet when you go saturday you see a very bouncy baby with a healthy heartbeat
ETA: I still sometimes don't feel my baby everyday, sometimes I can't for 2 days in a row. Trust me I'm a basket case on those days but then I feel him/her kick the day after
Try drinking orange juice. ) I hope everything is fine. But, it is still early to feel movements every day, with so much room. I went two days without feeling any and worried my butt off. Had a doctor appt that day do to bad cramps also. Everything turned out fine, it was round ligament pain and the heart was beating away.
As the other posters have said I think baby has so much room it might depend on the position he/she is in I've felt bumps from 11 weeks but depends on how I am laying down especially when I sneeze I'm sure everything is fine maybe get a doppler to settle your nerves x
my placenta is in the front and her movements aren't very strong most of the time and I am almost 25 weeks... the doctor said movements are muffled a lot if you have an anterior placenta try not to worry too much especially at 13 weeks the baby is tiny and can go hide in a spot where movement is hard to feel for a while
im carrying all in the back so sometimes feel her kick my bum. but i have only started feeling her in the last week, at least one thud a day, and ive felt her this morning. sometimes baby is asleep/hiding/swimming round and each pregnancy is different xxx
This is my 3rd and i started to feel my Lo at 11weeks but this 1 i felt some thing from about 14 weeks but it wouldn't be every day. I got told at 18 weeks i had an anterior placenta and that is way i wasn't feeling him much. at 13 weeks it is still very early and mw don't get worred about it untill after 23 weeks baby is so small and weak still just try and relax
