How much fetal movement for you at 23 weeks?

Hi, I'm just wondering how much fetal movement all you other
"late May 2011" mamas are feeling? I am now 23 weeks pregnant; this is baby number 7 so I do know that can make a difference...!!!! I first felt the baby "kick" with my hand on the day I turned 21 weeks. Now, I am feeling just so much kicking & moving. I haven't actually started OB care yet, please don't flame me, mamas! I have no medical insurance yet! But I did have an US at 11 weeks, and I stopped in my OBs office just before Christmas to hear the heartbeat. I'm not sure *why*, I was just thinking that this is *earlier* compared to my other babies for feeling so much baby movement. I guess I am just secretly hoping I'm perhaps a month off on my dates, since I had only had one PP AF before getting pg. anway, please respond if you will with *how far along you were* when you started feeling lots of movement..... thanks!

SOME movement at about 9 weeks. LOTS of movement about 20. at 23 weeks i was feeling TONS. i'm almost 25 now and i feel him "waving" his limbs across my belly, flip flopping all over. that sounds about right for 23 weeks, mama

Re: How much fetal movement for you at 23 weeks?

I've been feelings lots of movement since about 20-21 weeks, started being able to clearly feel movement at 18 weeks. I probably am not the best person to judge your situation though because with DS I felt very little movement. The midwife said that my placenta was positioned in just the right way, and DS was pretty mellow, so I didn't really get a lot of seeing movements from the outside or watching my stomach have an earthquake. This amount of movement is all very new to me, but I'd say I probably feel the baby once or twice an hour while not active and then constant movement in the times the baby is awake.

Okay, well I sound like I'm on schedule.... and that's good. I'm just not very *patient* at being pregnant. lol. Still interested in hearing from other mamas.

I don't know if my memory is faulty, but I don't remember DD being this active at 24 weeks. I can hardly sleep with all the kicking and movement at night. He seems to sleep most of the day though.

I will be 23 weeks Thursday and I am feeling lots of baby movement. Started just before 20 weeks and it getting stronger and more regular by the day.

I am 23w 1d and I feel a lot too- baby just started moving for me a few weeks ago
A went a couple days last week where it seem to slow down
But last night- jumping jacks on my bladder & it made me feel like I had to pee every 2 secs- so uncomfortable

Today lots of little kicks and tumbles- let my ODD feel yesterday and she thought it felt creepy

Re: How much fetal movement for you at 23 weeks?

weird pregnancy for me because I felt my first two very early (10 weeks?) but this was was almost nothing until like 20 and very little till about 23. Now I am 24 and feeling a lot more the last week or two. Its weird how different pregnancies can be.

I have an anterior placenta so feeling movement is rare. I feel most movement at night but not a whole lot in general.
