Feeling movements?

I will be 16 weeks tomorrow and the past couple of weeks i have been feel little movements here and there pretty much daily, but since last night nothing
and im really worried i know its probably nothing i thought they would be stronger by now , has anyone else felt this way? I know its probably all in my mind due to my past m/c's (which happened in early pregnancy) last ultrasound was @ 14 weeks.

It's still early to feel consistent movements everyday. The baby is still small enough to find spaces to move and wiggle and you not be able to feel it. This is my 3rd (I am just about 17 weeks) and I really started feeling pokes in the last week. Today I haven't felt much at all and I know it's so easy to worry, but remember they are still so tiny! :) They are moving like crazy, but we can't always feel it.

i cant really feel mine while i am up. i have to be laying down oddly enough on my back (although i hear thats a no-no) and be really still. then it feels like i have butterflies fluttering across my pelvic area. Its even felt like i squirmy worm at one point just in one spot.

I am 16 weeks on Saturday with my first baby. I have been feeling movements, i think, for the past week or so, but like the other ladies said its not every day and they are very small still!

I have recently bought a foetal doppler so i can hear the baby's heartbeat. I can't find it everytime but the strange thing is you can actually hear movements from the baby. Its really cool like little thuds and gurgles. Maybe you could get one to set your mind at ease. And don't worry if you cant always find the heart beat, its very hit and miss. They like to play hide and seek!

Yes, I had the quad screening done last week. I told the doc that I'm willing to do all the non-invasive tests, but that I would not do any tests that could potentially harm my baby. We would not terminate the pregnancy if the tests were favorable for down syndrome. It would just be nice to have a heads up so we can do our research and be better prepared to deal with it.
