I know I'm probably worrying over nothing but just wanted to sound out what's worrying me. I've had flutters (like bubbles/popping) since around 10 weeks. I would usually feel it a few times a day. Have had an early scan and my 12 week scan. Due my 20 week scan on 25 March. I had my 16 week check up on Monday and the MW said my uterus was right below my tummy button.
I realised last night that I havent felt the flutters etc all yesterday and possibly the day before. Is this usual? I've had suggestions to lie on my tummy, drink a glass of cold water and dont seem to feel the sensations - I havent done these things before so not sure if I usually would feel them. Is it usual to feel the flutters and for them to due down as you get further along?
I can feel sensations every so often but it feels more like muscle twitches or wind. I've not got any cramping sensations or bleeding which I can only take as a good sign?

Hey the feelings will come and go for a while yet, you won't notice a definite pattern till around 25-28 weeks. Try not to worry (easier said than done I know) pure orange always made my girls jiggle so maybe drink some of that see what happens x

Thanks girls, I knew I could rely on you both. I'm a bit fed up of people saying I've only felt wind or something - I must be hella windy if thats the feelings I've had so often! lol

Something that never occurred to me until it happened and was pointed out to me that the way you feel the baby move changes a baby gets bigger and bones get harder those glitters will now feel like little pokes, those aren't muscle twinges hun it is tiny hands an feet.if you are worried I would contact your mw hun xxxxx
