I'm 20+1 day (20 week scan on Tuesday) I have been feeling movement for the past few weeks now but it only seems to be on 1 side. I feel it in different places but always on my left side. Was that the same for any of you other ladies?
i couldn't feel both twins defined movements till closer to 28 weeks, before that twin 2 was happily hiding behind twin 1. twin 1 was on my left so thats where i felt it all initially, in fact when i was in the scan room i realized some of the movements i thought were twin 1 were also twin 2 where they were close together. xxx
Yes, I was like that... and still feel that way sometimes. They are both super active, but I mostly just feel the baby on the left. The doctors have told me a few things to help ease my mind. 1. You really don't know which baby is kicking you depending on how they lay and if they move. 2. If one baby is turned towards the other, they might be kicking the other twin rather than you. So you wouldn't necessarily feel it. 3. My baby on the right is much deeper than the baby on the left so I feel the movement less. '
I hope this helps. It still drive me nuts, but at least there are reasons.
Are you twins identicals? Mine are. I felt A LOT of movement on one side only and at 18 weeks my scan indicated that we had TTTS. As scary as that may sound, we caught it early, fixed it, the condition went into remission, and I am now 4 days away from delivering two very healthy boys. However, I noticed on the scan twin A (left side) had a TON of room to move and Twin B (right side) was "shrink-wrapped" in his aminio sac. Twin A ended up with around 12 cm of fluid and B only had about 2 cm n the deepest pocket which is why I could only feel A. After the surgery, it took a few weeks for the fluid to level out between the two and now I feel them equally. Sometimes one will roll inward and scare me for a few hours, but for the most part I can distinguish the movements between the two. Again, I am not trying to scare you... there are many reasons why you may only feel one at this time. This is just ONE of those options you should inquire about during your next visit. Good luck, hun.
