Hi. I am 23+1 and 2-3 weeks ago the baby did a huge flip and I was over the moon but has done nothing since - is this normal? Have had like bubbles popping a couple times but nothing more just needing some reassurance please x

It's still really early for movements, those bubbles popping were probably baby though. If you are worried at all about movement then please do give your MW a call. Mine told me over and over they would rather check a thousand 'nothings' than you sat at home worrying.
Sounds normal to me, at our hospital they say to come in if you are over 24 weeks and have been feeling regular movements which have stopped. Is this your first pregnancy? It often takes longer to feel the baby move in 1st pgs.
Have you got a Doppler to hear the heartbeat? I never had one, but it might help reassure you.

Yes it's my first and at 20 week scan was told have low lying placenta so I googled and that could be a reason. I will call her tomorrow but just wondered if other people had the same - its such an anxious time isnt it! Thank you though, lovely of you to advise x

I am 26 weeks pregnant and feel no movements, I am hoping its because I have an anterior placenta. I use my Doppler almost every day just go check.

I might invest in a doppler just to keep my mind at ease x

Im nearly 25 weeks and have an anterior placenta. Some days I get big boots/kicks, other days I have minimal movement. I put it down to being my first baby and also to the placenta. usually my movements are at night or when im sat for long periods of time. Like the others say, if your worried ring your MW, its not good to stress about it. Im sure all is fine x
