According to my weekly BabyCentre emails, I should be able to feel the baby’s movements from about sixteen to twenty weeks. Apparently if it’s a second or subsequent pregnancy, I may have even been able to feel movement from about thirteen weeks.
So my question is – if I’m nineteen weeks, why aren’t I feeling any movement?
I can’t remember when I first felt V move. Why don’t I remember? At the time I’m pretty sure I told myself I’d never forget which week of pregnancy I was in and the date and time, etc!
Sometimes I think I can feel movement – but then I think maybe it’s just hunger pangs (I get a lot of those) or gas.
After stressing about it for a few days, I told LagosDad I was going to have a scan. It was just last week (eighteen weeks) and I hadn’t had a scan since my thirteenth week. Nothing wrong with wanting to make sure, right?
Anyway – so everything is fine. The baby is still there and he’s moving around. And, of course LagosDad told me I was worrying about nothing as usual.
So why can’t I feel it? And when will I feel it?
And why is everything worrying me?
