Probably shouldn't be too worried

I know I probably shouldn't be TOO worried but I'm kind of nervous so I'd rather just see other people's responses.

Does anyone's little one have days where they're more active than others? Usually when I'm laying down I feel a little something.. Little flutters or even something where I feel the baby is just chillin on my right side..

I haven't felt anything today and its freaking me out kind of. But at 16 weeks it's more of a sporadic thing right...shouldn't get too used to a pattern?

Re: Probably shouldn't be too worried

  • I'll be 17 weeks tomorrow and I'm the same way. The doctor told me that it's very sporadic this early and some days you won't feel anything. I don't remember it being consistent until around 20 weeks with my first. Hope this helps!
  • I'll be 17 weeks tomorrow with my first and have yet to feel baby move yet. So I wouldn't worry if I were you!!

    Okay. Thank you! Guess I was just getting used to the tiny feelings.
  • Yep.  I'm not expecting to feel consistent movement until after the 20 week mark.

  • I'm 19 weeks tomorrow and though the doppler at my drs is proof baby goes crazy in there, I have yet to actually feel movement. Consistent movement isn't felt until closer to third tri.

    This. My OB said he would have thought I was crazy if I even felt baby move yet at 16 weeks.

    I have a tipped uterus so I'm not expecting to feel anything for a while.

  • Yep. There's a reason why drs don't start kick counts until the third trimester. There are tons of positions LO can get into where they're moving, but you can't feel them.
  • This was a great question/post! I started feeling baby move about a week ago, but it has been very inconsistent. A tap here, a roll there, a flutter here and there. It is a little scary on days when you don't feel so much activity. I've had to remind myself of everything you all have said here so as not to lose it and start thinking that my little girl is having issues.

    Some days I am truly grateful for all of your posts. It's really helpful for the first timers to know that all the weirdness of pregnancy is normal.
  • I'm 19.5 weeks and felt baby the whole 16th week then NOTHING for almost 2 weeks. What a relief it was when we had our A/S last week!!! My son is happy and healthy. Try not to worry about it like I did, it makes it a lot lot worse. Hang in there, doll.

    Thanks for posting this, I am in the same boat today. I had to do a lot of bending so I am hoping LO is just chilling farther back.
