    Hi I'm 22 weeks and little bean has been kicking for the last 3 weeks lots but over the last 3 days I've only felt the baby a couple of times. Is that normal?? Thank you. X

    I have just had a doctors appointment this morning for exactly the same thing :)

    I was told by the maternity unit here that they would only listen to the heartbeat if I went down there at this stage, they won;t start monitoring unless there is a problem after 29 weeks, not sure what it would be round your area.

    The doc said that he was just being lazy and this can be normal, but he had an amazingly strong heartbeat so it has relieved me to hear it and I don;t feel so stressed.

    I would say if your worried ring your maternity unit and see if they will see you yet, if they will just check the heartbeat go see the doctor it's quicker :)

    Like Bellariven said, if you are worried call your gp or midwife, or maternity assessment. Every area is so different but nobody will make you feel like you're wasting their time as they just want to look after the baby and make sure all is well.

    Hi im 22 weeks as well and been feeling it for about 3 weeks
    since saturday ive hardly felt any movement at all- and then last night it was going crazy
    think its normal at this stage as the baby is still small
    i think they say u should feel regular movement from about 26 wks - but im having the exact same but havent been too worried about it (which is a miracle for me :)) x

    i had the same at the weekend. little miss decieded she wanted to sleep all weekend. but ended up booting me even more now. even saw my belly move lastnight in the bath. and she proper kicked me this morning.
    if your really worried ring up ur midwife. i txted my friend who is a midwife and she said if i didnt feel anything longer than a few days go in and get checked.

    You're still quite early on, and they say movements dont need to be monitored until you're about 28 weeks and LO is in a routine of waking and sleeping.

    Try not to worry too much :)
