Mandy a year is the normal waiitng time before seeing a doc, that is how long I had to wait. When you go in, take any charts in that you have, so they can see what your cycles are like and when you do or do not ovulate
Just updating, today is my 2nd day of the Met....I don't know if it's all in my head or what, but it seems like I'm noticing a decrease in my appetite. Usually I like to eat (and even have seconds sometimes, lol) but I noticed today I just don't really want to eat...and if I do eat, then I don't want as much as usual. Like this morning, I had cereal and after 5 bites, I just didn't want anymore. I also don't have a craving for sweets like I do a lot. Hopefully it's not all in my head and it means the Met. is working
I have been feeling movement like you are describing for a couple weeks now but I only feel it a few times a day it's not consistent yet. Yesterday I felt a couple of the strongest ones I felt yet it, I want more of that!
They told me last week at the ultrasound that I have an anterior placenta so I may not feel movements on a regular basis until I am around 22 weeks which is not too far off. They said the movement I am feeling now is likely when she kicks hard or kicks/moves in a certain area around the placenta because when the placenta is in the front it acts as a cushion to the kicks but once she gets a little bigger I will feel it. So maybe that's why you haven't felt a lot of movement yet I was told its common to have an anterior placenta it is just where it happened to implant.
I feel it most often at night when I'm laying watching TV. It was funny, the other night, my cat was in my lap and his bottom was laying against my lower stomach and the baby went poke poke poke right where the cat's bottom was! Hehe Do you feel the movement on one side or another? I've been feeling it in the middle-right and middle-left.
I guess I'll find out where the placenta is on January 10th!!
