I Know I am Not Suppossed To But....

I am freaking out a bit.

I am 19 weeks 3 days pregnant and I have not felt any movement that I can say for sure is this baby. I thought I did...until it was just gas. (I am super embarrassed about that.) I know everyone is different but come on! I just want to be able to feel her move so that I know she is okay.

During our anatomy ultrasound, she would turn over and it absolutely baffled me that I did not feel it at all. Nothing. Ziltch. Nada. I just don't get how something the size of a mango can be kicking and rolling and yet I feel zero of it.

I guess I am just too padded. I know it could be (and most likely is from) the anterior placenta. Madison has lots of stuff to kick through before it registers with me. But I still don't like it.

A mango is pretty small. The anterior placenta is like a big wet blanket. She's a ballerina, not a placekicker. Give her a few weeks and she'll be bigger and stronger. Right now she's just working on her stretching exercises and pliés.
