No movements for me yet... normal though for first time mom's to not feel it until later though... right? Dr.'s appt this morning, I have a mile long list of question. One of which is about sleeping position. I'm a total back sleeper and can't seem to make the switch to the side!

Totally normal. I don't think I even felt flutters with my first. I can remember exactly when my first kicked, but I want to say around 18 or 19 weeks, idk if that's early or normal, but he was karate kid in there. I think I read "normal" is anywhere from 17-24 weeks. It's a erode range. I thought I wouldn't feel it till later cuz my placenta is in front of the baby, and a lot if women with anterior placenta say they didn't feel the baby move till later since the placenta is in the way...

They recommend laying on your left, to improve blood flow. I'm a back sleeper too. Even if I fall asleep on my side I always roll to my back. I think they say to try to do it by 20 weeks, but if it's not your norm, start practicing now. I tried a tip I read, putting a pillow between your knees while on your left side - one night it worked, one night it didn't. It also said if you're still rolling, try putting a large pillow behind your back, to make rolling harder. I haven't tired that yet. I'm not overly worried about it, I also had a hard time with my second son staying on my left side. I would wake up on my stomach sometimes! But I had no issues. I think it's just one of those things to "do if you can" but it's not out right dangerous if you don't...as long as your placenta and baby are remaining normal.

Everyone is different. I felt the first flutters around 14 weeks, but I passed it off as gas at first. They kept happening and got stronger. Don't worry if you haven't felt your bubs move yet

'They' say the ideal position is sleeping on your left side so you're not putting pressure on your organs, but if I sleep on my left, my little guy complains! He's transverse and lying on my right side and only calms down if I'm on my back or on my right. I'd say sleep in whatever position is comfortable for you! There's a risk of putting pressure on the blood vessels to the placenta if you lie on your back, but it's minimal and won't harm your baby. If you're not comfortable and can't sleep then that's not good either!

I still think it's a marketing gimmick. Sounds like a chew toy for a dog!
