    Ok, so i posted on here a couple of weeks ago that hadnt felt anything that i could think "definate movement" and didnt feel my tummy was growing but then i had a sudden spurt and felt like i had a bit of a tummy but now.....

    Its completely gone again!!!:cry:

    Im now 18 weeks and still havent felt any movement and my tummy is almost flat again! People had actually been saying to me this past week "oh ure big for 4.5 months"(which i loved) but this morning its totally gone!

    How is everyone else due in March growing? And are u feeling movement now?

    U girls were great at reassuring me last time but just feeling really upset again that something is wrong with me that im not feeling any movement or growing!:cry::cry::cry:

    Hi hun, at 18 weeks i wasnt sure if i had felt movement either and belly seemed to be small/stopped growing. By end of 19 weeks i had definate movement, but up until then i wasnt sure if what i had felt was movement...

    Plus my belly has only just popped out at 21 weeks (after 2/3 weeks of not much growth)! at 18 weeks it was rounded occasionally but it all depends on how baby is laying. it still has a lot of room for moving around and hiding at the mo, so dont worry yourself. Give it a couple of weeks of rapid growth and you wont get rid of the bump and the movements! :)

    I didn't start to feel movements untill about 21 weeks. I even saw my LO move at my 20 week scan and couldn't feel it! The midwife said that it was perfectly normal and that I would start to feel movement in the next couple of weeks.

    my belly changes size and shape all day long for example when i wake up theres nothing there but by the time i go to bed i look like i've swollowed a basket ball, i'm just guessing that it depends on how the baby is lying.as for movements they will happen maybe baby moves more when your asleep i know that mines more active when i'm in bed the only thing now is there strong enough to wake me now so i'm getting no sleep lol

    You can have mine - gladly!! :rofl::rofl:

    A girl at work didn't show till about 27 weeks, so you've no need to worry hun.:hugs: She had a lovely small round bump right up to the end. Me, I just look like a beached whale! :rofl:

    As for the movement, some ladies don't feel any movement until 22/23 weeks on their first, so it's still very early days for you.:hugs:

    with my first i wasnt sure i could feel anything at your stage, i don't think it was until i was about 19/20 weeks that i felt movement. i hardly showed at all too but it was mainly because of my height and body and the way the baby was - she was healthy though :) try not to worry too much you'll have your 20 week scan soon

    My tummy seemed quite big around 11- 12 weeks but I think that was purely bloating.

    Over the last week my tummy has really popped out but I dont think I have felt any definate movement yet. I have felt a few flutterings that may have been movement but as this is my first child I have nothing to compare it to.

    Its amazing how different everyones pregnancy is, a friend at work is four days behind me but she is so tiny!!
