17 weeks pregnant

Hi all, not been on in weeks so thot I'd write a wee blog. I'm 17 weeks today and must say I've had a smooth pregnancy so far. Just tiredness but no sickness at all. This is my 2nd baby and I feel more anxious than the 1st. Had my scan at 12 weeks and heard my baby heartbeat at 15 weeks which was amazing. For the last 2 weeks I have felt flutters and movement but nothing the last couple of days so feeling worried. I don't know wether to buy or hire a Doppler. I've heard good and bad reviews. Has any1 got any ideas on how I can get reassurance from my little peanut. I've got group b strep also and had it in my 1st pregnancy. So antibiotics for me in labour. Thanks for reading x

  • Go on ebay/amazon and buy one, when I was looking they were going for about £20 or there is a company that you can hire them off for 1 month for about a tenner and they have got really good feedback.

    When is your next midwife app? If your bump is growing then I really wouldn't stress to much but I know it is nice to beable to hear te heart beat at home.

  • Thank u, my next appointment is 14 may for my 20 week scan. That's 3 weeks away lol. I'll look on internet n hav a look. My friend says these things can make u worse as sumtimes u can't find heartbeat. X

  • my midwife said that it is not until after 20/22 weeks that you would be noticing a bit of movement and flutters and then you would watch out for anything unusual. I think until then these little flutters would not be so frequent. So dont worry until few weeks. I have not felt anything yet and my 20 week scan is on 13 May. But if you really cannot sleep over being so worried, just give your midwife a call to check things to put your mind at rest.
