    Kinda worried about something, but it could be my imagination.
    Does it mean anything if you feel the movements less frequent or not as strong as before?
    I dont actually know if baby has stopped moving as much as he was before but I panick if I dont feel him wiggling about- also, when should I expect to feel the full blown kicks because so far its only if I wear tight jeans and I can only feel him moving and wiggling about if Im laying down.

    At you stage some people haven't felt any movements at all. I wouldn't expect to feel movements everyday until around 25 weeks. Try not to worry too much, soom bubs will be keeping you awake all night.

    Yeah, I wouldn't worry. It's still pretty early on to be feeling that much.

    It's been interesting comaring my two as we've gone along. Sometimes one will have a quiet few days and then the other will take over as the active one or they'll both go a bit quiet and then have a busy few days. They're little individuals and they're already asserting that :)

    Bless, I cant believe youre having twins Helen, I was hoping for a pair of beauties but sadly not this time round (Im happy with my ickle lad tho)- hopefully sometime in the future though I'll have twins, as it runs in the family! :)
    As for the movement, I guess its because Im use to feeling him move everyday, it makes me wonder why all of a sudden he would slow down or sometimes stop for a few hours... Youre right, some people havent felt movement yet and my dr even mentioned at my last visit that I shouldnt be feeling it til 20+ weels- As this is my first, I was basically wondering if its normal and when I will be feeling those real forceful kicks. I want it all to happen now, Im so bloody impaitent aint I? he he

    Thanks for explaining girls-
    KX, my heart was set on a girl yes, but now I have got use to the idea of having a little boy, I wouldnt swap him for the world. Twins would have been nice but its not something you can exactly plan. I dont wanna sound like I was asking for alot because really, I wasnt. Im happy with what I have got, I just hope he's born healthy. Thats all I care about.
    Spunkky, the movements I feel at the moment seem to be around the same time every day, so ive noticed! The movements are strange and vary.
    One day I can have movemnet that feels as though something has gone *POP* inside me, other days I just get fluttering and a wave-like type of movement. I know I seem paranoid but I think any expecting mother would worry if their baby suddenly stopped moving.
    Luckily for me, the little tyke has been moving most of the day now, so Im ok.
    :)
