As I posted before, my last ultrasound appears to show that the baby’s placenta is anterior, so I don’t really feel as much movement.
That’s definitely true. I felt movement much earlier than I have in my past 2 pregnancies. I chalked it up to experience and the ability to recognize what movement really is. I think that’s the case.
But the movements never really got more frequent or stronger. In fact, last week, I barely felt movement at all and was starting to get worried. I debated on whether I should my doctor. Should I run in for a quick check? Considering that they haven’t yet been able to find the heartbeat without an ultrasound, does that indicate an issue?
Well, I didn’t call the doctor. I ended up drinking some orange juice, laying down and waiting. Sure enough, movement. Not super strong, but totally normal for being 18 weeks along. Phew!
