I wish I was one of these people who wouldn't worry while pregnant but I'm not ... I just seem so concerned about everything that is or isn't going on ... I have ppl telling my how much their baby's are kicking them but mine doesn't, I feel him/her squirm or what feels like squirming every now & then .. I'm 28 wks pregnant so I would think the kicking would be really strong, so why isn't it there ... also if something bad happened to the baby, you wouldn't know wouldn't you ? like there would be some sort of bleeding ?!? this is my first baby & I don't know what to expect or what should be going on, I just want my baby to be okay, but the lack of movement (cause s/he only 'squirms' a couple times a day) has me concerned

Have you been to the doc to here the heartbeat? You should look into renting a doppler out while you are pregnant so that you can hear the baby's heartbeat anytime you want...a healthy heartbeat is good sign that the baby is healthy...Have they sent you for a scan yet? If not tell your doc you would like to go for one...the tech can tell you how everything is in its correct place...the baby is probably moving around a lot...a lot of moving you wont feel...I am going on 19 weeks...and some days dont feel any kicking at all..You may just have a calm baby...this is good...(lol) If you get too concerned call your doc and talk to them about it they would know best...good luck

Yeah I go every month & hear the heartbeat ... I go again on thursday, it's just so hard not to worry I guess ... I thought about renting one at first, but having only 12 weeks left I can't see that happening, I was a nervous person before I got pregnant & I think all of this is playing on it, I just want things to be good cause I'm looking forward to it so much

I completely understand for I too had anxiety issues before I got pregnant this time...I also know what it is like to hear someone say dont worry it is out of your control...which p__ses you off because it is the truth...chances are everything will turn out perfectly fine and in a little more than a few weeks you will be holding your beautiful baby...just remember that stress is not good for either of you...try to distract yourself...good luck

S, If you want to listen to the baby you can buy a prenatal monitor on ebay - do a search on "wombsong"... that way you can rea__sure yourself if you start to worry. I don't know how much it costs to rent a doppler, but the ebay monitors are pretty cheap. My son used to go long times without moving when I was pregnant with him. Good luck!

I don't feel many strong kicks either, mostly wiggles and squirms... I'm 30 wks. I would think that it's just the baby is running out of room to get those good kicks in anymore. Are you measuring big, sometimes when you have too much amniotic fluid it makes it harder to feel the baby, I measure way big because of my amniotic fluid.
