    I had exactly the same worries as you around the same time, as i started to feel them move from about 14wks. But i think at the 18 wk mark you still dont feel everything and all the great ladies on here told me not to worry, but if you are really concerned and need to put your mind at rest give your midwife a call thats what they are there for and i am sure she wont mind.

    hi hun - I didnt feel any movement till late on but if you have and now you havent maybe its worth getting yourself checked out. I would call them in the morning and ask to be seen (you should have got number at your booking in appointment or failing that call the gp and ask for a number) - sure they have just moved or your placenta has grown mine was anterior and I could hardly feel sam as he was behind it

    If you have a local labour and delivery suite, then you are entitled to turn up there for a check up any time you need to. Just give the hospital a call and tell them you're coming in because you're concerned about movement.
    At 18wks, movement can still be scant and difficult to detect hun. The babies have lots of room to float around, and if they have shifted their position this week, you may not feel them. After 20wks the movement wil be much more obvious - and very definite punches and kicks! Because you are at risk of TTS I would recommend getting checked tho just to be on the safe side love x

    Mine were quite sporadic about that time too.
    Now I seem to have hours where there is nothing then half an hour of constant movements. I swear one starts the other off!
